Deceit by Omission

A motley assortment of Fiestaware

Little Blondie collected Fiestaware  among other things.  She had hundreds of pieces in rainbow colors stashed here and there. What little bit I saw her sell did not prove profitable if I am remembering right.  When she blew out of here,  kitchen goods took a particular hard hit.  No silverware, no cuttin’ knives and a paltry selection of dinnerware was what I ended up with when the dust settled.  The dinnerware situation amounted to 2 plates, 4 bowls, a few saucers and a medium size bowl -all Fiestaware.  Now considering she had Fiestaware bulgin’ out

Hamilton Beach Brew Station

It was time to update the coffee pot onboard the NO Princess Palace. The old Hamilton Beach single cup brewer had been a good solid workhorse but everything mechanical wears down sooner or later.

Early Summer at the Secret Hideout

If y’all have been following along, you will recall my Yamaha EF2000iS Inverter Generator failed me back in June when I was about 100 days into the hanging out at the Secret Hideout. A fairly serious event bein’ as how the Secret Hideout is off grid and a generator was my sole source of electricity.

Now one of the reasons I bought a Yamaha instead of one of those Chinaman generators from Home Depot was reliability and service after the purchase.  Gate guarding down here in the Puckerbrush you live or die by your generator
