Yesterday I went to Jacob Springs and started the final cleaning in the rooms that were done. Today Linda, Adam and I will help Tad with some of the final things in order to hopefully get our order of occupancy so I can schedule the movers for later today or at least tomorrow.
It was such a beautiful day that Linda and I searched for things to do outside. Since Ival is hunting until Saturday, I want to surprise him by having as much done around the house as humanly possible. I remembered that we needed to get a mailbox up so we hit the junk pile looking for the perfect piece. We thought about using an old cast iron headboard, we have several, but chose this 1925 air compressor instead. When we lived on Schicks, a landscaper stopped by the house one day and said he noticed all the "old stuff" we had in our yard. He asked if we wanted this old air compressor and dropped it by the next day.
The landscapers were working yesterday and had to come over to inspect what we were doing. They had lots of great ideas that involved cutting torches, a sawzall and various other loud tools, but we had none of those - just some junk lumber, a screwdriver, and a few other things we found lying around. So, Linda got to work and I took pictures.
There we have it. Good use for the 1925 air compressor and we now have a mailbox! I love the junk pile!
