Ed S - Mondays Project - 3am I woke up with the smell of plastic burning, 50 degrees in the house, and furnace not working. The pic is of Furnace control board.. So from 3am until about 2 pm I spent my time feeding two fire places. That's when the repairmen returned with the part. Guess we cut it close because I only have two logs left. Anyone got fire wood for sale?

South Dakota Gift Exchange
Picture and letter
Note to Suzanne Millay: Our group was very excited with the beautiful carvings that Kentucky did. Patty received the Santa moon, Mike got Santa's hat hanging up until next year, Frank got the star with cross, and Hisako the Snowman. Other members wanted to know if the exchange would happen in 2015. I said we would just have to wait and see what the New Year brings. I was so thrilled to have met you and your group. I think all carvers must be just a special bunch of folks. Thank you for getting this exchange going and passing the information to the other carvers. Thanks again for letting us get to know some fantastic folks in Kentucky. Merry Christmas from the Haycamp Carvers to the River Valley Carvers. Patty Kaul
