    Possibly the last warm day of the foreseeable future?

    We had unseasonably warm temps here a few days ago so I took advantage and changed the water and filters in the hot tub. We use it more in the winter than any other season. Finally finished up stacking my fire wood too!

    Anyone else interested in oil heaters?

    It sure is! My wife was 15 minutes away from them in Milford visiting her sister last week, if she was down there now I’d be giving her a call right now! As it is, it’s only 2 hrs from me, boy it’s tempting…

    Rain held off for the kids, but it’s raining steady now. Glad I decided to put up the canopy out front so the neighbors could party!

    It’s nice here now too but scattered showers are supposed to move in early evening. Hopefully, they’ll hold off. Regardless, we’re ready for the little varmints!

    Tied Up Texas Chuck & Smokey Chicken Wings

    I’m sure everyone loved the food and fire! The last few days have been great here in PA too, I’ve had the pit burning everyday. We’re the last house on a dead end street, I put it out front so the neighbors know it’s time to party!

    Anyone else interested in oil heaters?

    Yeah, they definitely need to be lit/extinguished outside. When lighting, the flames go wild and will produce black smoke and will smell but once the chimney is flipped on they calm down and burn very smooth and clean. Recently, we had some chilly, rainy weather. We enjoy sitting in our gazebo...
