TIMBER !!!!!!


I have not forgotten my Giveaway or my Great Blog Readers. This picture is what is going on at the Ol Homestead. or... That was the Ol Homestead! It is a pile of boards that once was an old house on our property. You can see we have been busy. Hubby took it down in one night with the bobcat. He has so far took 5 dump truck loads of wood off to burn. We are having to sort copper, aluminium, and metal from the wood. We are going to sell the copper and aluminium. This house had no insulation in it. Only a little around the added on bathroom. I bet they were always freezing!! So with an added on bathroom the house was very old. They had an out house before that. I did save same of the old wallpaper (thick paper) that was tacked up on the slat walls. I found a 1973 newspaper in the wall that was advertising a 1973 pontiac GT Rally Sport car for $2995 Brand New at Doug Wiley Pontiac. You could get 50 lbs of meat at Fairfield Meat Market for $7.99 cent. It listed how much chicken and different cuts of beef were in the deal for $7.99. I keep saying I miss the 70's !!! lol Now you can't even get 2 lbs of meat for $7.99 Don't get me started on the gas prices. $ 3.00 gallon for regular...

I have not forgotten the Giveaway. I have a small pile of cute things besides the chart and fabric. I just have not taken a picture yet. So I guess it will be a surprise!!! If you are just now reading. Please comment under the 100 Followers Giveaway post for a chance to win. I will do the drawing Sunday night!!!

I hear the dump truck coming back... urghhhh Time to get back to work !!! To soon, I am not rested.

It is amazing how some of those older homes were built to last and some were just thrown together. Yep. cash in that metal, they are paying nice $ for it now.

I got scared for a minute when I saw this on my blog roll. I thought you got hit by a tornado! hee,hee,hee.
Amazing how things have gone up so much and how paychecks didn't seem to keep up. ;)
