Just back from the Old FARTS Christmas lunch at the Vanier Legion. Our small group meets up every Wednesday for a lunch, no matter what it is it is $10.00. Rob the cook does an outstanding job feeding us for the $10.00 special but he also has a limited menu that is available. Today he outdid himself; turkey, tourtiere, ham, mash potatoes, carrots, cranberry sauce, gravy and a white cake with a maple syrup sauce for dessert. All this for the exorbitant price of $20.00 including tip.
The organizers were a little worried that it would be well attended but there was close to 40 people who enjoyed the meal and camaraderie of seldom seen old workmates.
Luc the electrician was in again today installing more lights including the ones for under the counter, and one over the seating area of the island. New eavestrough put up around the house and garage. Plumbers in and now have the new basement bathroom and mud room powder room installed and working. And Alex finished up some outside flashing and inside clean-up. Now if only the granite could have been delivered on time everything would almost be finished. Alas another week before that arrives, then the installation, final electrics (ie face plates installed), last coat on the floors and a clean-up. Then comes the job of bringing everything in from the garage and arrangement. We certainly should be in before Christmas.
