Anyhoo...back to the task at hand.
|Dad and I saw these slate fence posts this morning up in Delta, PA - just over the Mason-Dixon from our home under construction.|
|...and also, they're made of slate.|
See how they're carved and such - neato!
Dad and I got the slate in the foreground this morning so that Dan can finish facing the masonry heater.
When we went to drop it off at the house, we found CRAIG there!
At his own house! Insanity.
Later that day...
After a little cleaning this evening: Original knob and escutcheon from the salvaged oak doors. We only have a few of these- somebody done stole 'em before the doors were removed in the deconstruction of the building in Hanover, PA.
Hope your Christmas was merry, and that you didn't give anyone a hard time if they said (GASP!) "Happy Holidays" or something to that effect.
