    Well, it's a rainy stormy day today. My granddaughter has a competition event in Whitman Mass that we will attend. Tomorrow - Sunday - will be a sunny pretty day so we will do our anniversary day tomorrow. The cape is beautiful as is all along the canal. I will bring my camera.

    Tomorrow we celebrate our 45-th. We go out to Eastwinds Seafood in Wareham for a New England Scallop plate. Local Scallops, never frozen - scrumptious. Then we bebop around the Cape Cod Canal.

    Lumber prices - BUT - BUT

    I have been watching videos about making garden planters. One of them uses a pile of PT 2x4 and 2x6. Lots of money there. However, one guy that is frugal talked about lumber pricing and how to squeeze pennies. My kinda guy. He said that even though the lumber prices are going thru the roof -...

    Another shortage I don't see as a crisis...

    It's all about consumerism. What can we SELL. I grew up in a world where the store shelves in a supermarket did not have nearly as many items as there is today. Plus the supermarkets were a LOT smaller and there was NO Walmart. Mashed REAL carrots with nothing else in there is actually good...

    Metal Fab

    Yeah - $80 - $100 seems like the price range. Custom work is not cheap. When I was working in the industry we got TONS of custom work done. I don't know anyone that would do those pulls.

    Metal Fab

    I wish I knew a source. I know from metal machining all my working life that there are different levels of skill in all of the trades. Finding a welder with the fine welding skills to that degree is a special talent. Finding a metal fabricator with the fine fabrication skills to that degree...

    Inflation (beyond the price of gasoline)

    All of these things is going to hurt all of us in different ways. I spend many years "trying" to cover some of those costs in different ways, in preparation for retirement. No matter - food, gas, propane, medical expenses. All of it is going to hurt. IS hurting. I am certainly - NOT - in...
