LOL, I saw this yesterday just before the wet heavy snow blanketed our satellite and snuffed out all communications...

the good news is we never lost our electricity and as time goes on, it is less likely we will.....but the neighbors the next road over lost power last night and it's still out

and I won't tell you of how dh donned his fall protection gear and went up on the roof to clear off the satellite so I could get to the "cooking channel" as he calls it

so I did send up the smoke signals and the many braves protected us from a power failure (and from dh falling off the roof)...many thanks Uncle Bob

We both have been sick, again, and have been pretty quiet lately. Rich's symptoms were increasing; stomach discomfort, inability to finish meals, but he seems a bit better now that he is over his cold. He has been working on clearing out old papers. He was afraid I would be looking at these records and thinking they must be important if he was keeping them so long....he threw away 40 pounds of papers so far. Yesterday he almost got his motorcycle put back together from this winters minor tear down. The last house project was replacing the "temporary" stairs from the basement up to the first floor. We had been using his construction site treads all these years. Other house projects have been put on hold until we get our strength back. Hospice has missed the past two appointments because of the snow. Since school has been cancelled many days, our township is slow about clearing our roads, and he told Hospice to postpone our visits. Here are some recent photos..

Hope you two kick those colds/flu soon. The stair look great! I never have that kind of success with finishing wood.
