Gigi and Tav are devastated that Michael’s Restaurant on Margaret Street has closed. The dog walk stop for free treats for their entire lives.

Where is the Michael’s hostess?

Anybody in the back?

Are you in there, Michael?

707 Southard on December, 2020 House Tour

Nance Frank stopped by our house today. She is president of the Old Island Restoration Foundation. We are going to be on the December, 2020 house tour.

Tours occur in December, January, February and March during the winter months. The date for next December is not yet set.

We only have to be gone from the house for three hours each day, and Christmas decorations are encouraged.

Monday Morning Work

Refreshed the outside dining porch and front porch floors. The white trim on the dining porch was also painted.

Also, a plumbing upgrade as the pool filler no longer has a hose to step across on the way to the outdoor shower.

Pool Deck Is Finished

On Friday, the work was done.

The furniture is now back with four cans of yard waste out for pickup. Yard waste cans compliments of “John and Steve Trash Rentals”.

AC Goes Out, We Go North

Many have told us the horrors of LG Mini-Splits. Amazon backs this up. The three units that we have were installed sometime in 2012 by the previous owner.

June 23rd, the day that LG died.

Northbound on June 25th, about 6 days earlier than planned.

Fixed by Curry Refrigeration in July, 2019 with 3 new Cooper-Hunter units, made in the USA.

Making AC on Southard great again.
