electricity and running water.
a Living about making a living as a blacksmith.
is a quick look at some of our cat buddies over the years.
Photographs of the Shack, Shop and House we built.

Vacation 2002 Molly traveled to New England by car, stopping
along the way to look at old buildings and wrought hardware.
