Plastic Goes Up on the Windows

5 year old learns to hammer

We’ve got geothermal heating in an old, old house.  We need to help it along a little.

The plastic was put up on the windows last week downstairs.  The Kellers, Jeff Burkley, Darwin Meyer, Deb Brown and her nephew Steven all went to work.  First the dead bugs had to be swept up.  Then there was the sick sick raccoon outside that had to be taken care of.  Next we began the process of attaching plastic with strips and nails.

I think Steven During had the best time of all.  He learned how to use a hammer, how to identify a sick raccoon and how to use a shop vac.
