Barter System: Alive and Well

Afternoon watch, 2 bells (1:24 pm)

As soon as I get back from my mini-vacation to Portland (starting tomorrow, yay!), I'm going to do some tile work with MS (from our Training Dept., not the MS that just left the company for a new IT job). This is in exchange for some help framing my downstairs.

New Locks
Posted in General
Morning watch, 2 bells (5:20 am)

I installed new locks (handle and deadbolt) on our front door last night. The old lock was in pretty poor shape, and all the coating had worn off in only 4 years of light use. It was also starting to stick when you shut the door, the latch-thingy wasn't retracting in the door like it should.

A nice difference is now I don't have to unlock the door to go out, you can open the door from the inside if it's locked—our old lock wouldn't do that. The downside is it'll be easier to lock myself out of the house now.
