OT - Best 60th Birthday Gift Ever...
Posted by: OttawaCorvairGuy ()

I've been keeping quiet for months now.

But I have to praise God.
Our other place sold, before Christmas, and what a Christmas present for Marie and I.
After all these years we will be debt free soon.
To be debt free has been my goal shortly after we got the farm, about 10 years.

The final walk through was 10:30 this morning and it went well.

Everyone should live their own life and only be concerned with what's best for them.
In other words - Butt out of other people's business and what they do or don't do.
Everyone's priorities are different!

Thank you.

Now I can enjoy myself, my hobbies, and building the pole barn without getting in or being in debt...

God is Good and all the ups and downs was worth it and paid off in the end..

Thank you Joel and Curtis.

Hey Curtis, I thought I was going to be able to come your way (much sooner) as in this month.
Sadly though, the gig of transporting something - for someone - cancelled...

But I'm still planning (as we agreed) to come your way later - when the weather is nicer..

Hope all is well..

I've got to run and go sign papers... Yippieeee…

My 60th birthday present came 3 days early...

The new owners got the keys late yesterday and we got our money wired from the lawyer's office. Big GRIN

I don't know what I'm going to do with myself now...

I don't have:

2 lawns to cut grass

2 driveways to snow blow

2 properties to maintain and fix things when needed...

Not to mention all that driving back and forth...











OH Wait!!

I can get on with a new chapter in my life.

Spend more time with the Marie and on the farm..

Work on Ultravans and finally build that barn I've wanted and that's for starters... Grin

Awww... Do I have too... Grin


FYI - My goal is to do whatever is the cheapest: (yet safe)

Option #1. Replace the cracked block on my own

Option #2. Replace just the boiler if I have too

My main goal is to get a new outdoor furnace that will not only heat the farm house, but will also heat the pole barn / garage as our main heating source and only use the oil fired boiler as a back up when needed.

Congrats on everything but then I knew before a lot of people! LOL

BTW , I don't think I asked but how old is the old boiler? You won't know until you actually get the water out but do you know what the inside looks like? If it is decent on the inside and not rusted and pitted, maybe weld the crack? Since it is only back up that might be a thought.
