Yes, we are here, but continued membership requires twice daily self-flagellation and still the lure and thrall of the hociR is strong.

I'm 47, 1x daily self flagellation is about all I'm capable of now. In my 20's......

And if the going gets really tough, we can pull the lid on one of these...
Take that, you hociR and Godzilla.

Yup, and they really are tasty!

Way better than any bacon I've ever had, btw.

Saturday is drawing near. I think it's time for some health advice for those among the audience who still venture out on Fridays

I discovered the flue for the coal - or possibly wood - stove in the kitchen (I always wondered what that extra chimney was for), the places where gaslights had been mounted (in some rooms the pipe and nipple assy. was still there), an un-plumbed, non-insulated room on the third floor separated from the accessible area (accessed by pull-down stairs), presumably used by other than household help, and 30+ long arms behind a false panel in a space adjoining that room. Since the stairs were in the ceiling of a closet I wondered whether that was an early safe room. It was built for the daugfhter of a St. Louis shoe baron as her wedding present.

Sale of those bought a new furnace / airco and complete tuckpointing.

There were 8 Murphy Beds in that house - all in a row along the wall of a room that ran the length of the back of the house on the second floor!

Really net old place - had the original blue prints.
Sounds like it is a very neat old house.

So by 30+ long arms you are referring to rifles?

sadly, I must announce my retirement from this thread.

I have just purchased a K3 and it will arrive Tuesday. I have enjoyed the camaraderie and friendships I have forged in this thread. I shall miss you all.
Well if you must take your leave then do so. You will be missed, to be sure. Your contributions to the discussion have been great and many.

But please do not feel compelled to take your leave of us, simply because of your moment of weakness. We shall not bear ill will towards you, as just like all of us, you are human, and humans are not perfect.

I (we) forgive you.
