  • And little Noah certainly can't go home to a cold house now, could he?

    We like to think what we do is a little magical, but it all pales in comparison to this little fella.

    So once again, time to get to work!

    The old boiler just won't cut the mustard with a preemie:

  • No, only the best will do in these circumstances. Which is very rewarding, to say the least:







    And counter-flow vents:



    Good Speed Noah, and on to Super Bowl LXXV!

    Look how pretty!!!
    The baby is cute too.
    Too bad about being a Patriots fan...but he'll probably still get to be old enough to see Brady play.

    I hope I get to be old enough to see Noah play!

    I'm thinking Noah may be a rookie wide receiver by the time Brady decides to retire.

    Great job on the install by the way, looks excellent.

    Ryan, I'm glad everyone is doing well and that it'll be a cozy winter thanks to your hard work. Here's to little Noah and his bright future.

    My daughter was a preemie too. Now she's the tallest kid in her class.

    <sigh>

    A few months ago, my youngest (4yo) told his mommy "You never have any babies". Fortunately for him (& I), he's got a few baby cousins to be the big kid for.

    He's a tough little guy so lets get Noah started right. maybe a small pipe wrench and a canopy of pages from TLAOSH.

    An 8" pipe wrench will do for now. Then a 10, 12,14,18,24,36 and then a 48" Aluminum when he graduates!!!!!!

    Skip the 5' wrench

    That reminds me of a great score I made on ebay a while back. I had wanted an offset Ridgid pipe wrench for a while but as a homeowner I balked at the price of a new one.

    One day I came across an offering of 6 pipe wrenches 8-18" for $25 and one looked like it might be an offset by the grainy picture. I bit and about eight days later a battered box showed up on the porch. Inside was a Ridgid offset, a 14" straight Ridgid. a 10" stilson style and 4 other mixed brands 12-16" - all in good shape. i got 7 wrenches in good used shape and not one Chinese in the lot.

    I gave 3 of them away and added the rest to my collection. Some poor deceased soul is rolling in his grave but I'd like to assure him all of these will be put to good use.

    Congratulations, especially for Noah's mom for all her late night feeding trips.
    Just spent a week camping with the grandkids, in AZ., exhausting but fun.
