After taking Abbey for her walk yesterday I opened the bakery again. This time I made fudgy brownies with peanut butter icing. It turned out great but a bit too sweet for my tastes. I'm sure it will be gone in no time. I should give the grandson a big piece and let mom deal with the sugar rush he'll have after. :) It will be good exercise for the pregnant lady chasing the already busy boy. Isn't that what grandparents are for. Payback time for all the roten things the kids did when they were young.
I took another shot at the cookoo clock but I think it's toast. I can either get the eascape wheel to move but it it's open to far and slips or too tight and it won't release. I think today if I can put a uartz movement in the grandmother clock. I have one in the hoard that might be able to swing the long pendulum as it has a place to add a counterweight. I'll have to make a small box and mount the movement in it to see if I can get the heavier pendulum to swing.

Hi Tony, before you get rid of Kramer make sure there is not another reason for her asthma. Dust mites are just as bad. I am surprised that once again a kitty is to blame whereas a dog is not. I think she needs to be examined and tested by an allergist before your decision to dump Kramer is made. They are best to determine what the actual cause for her asthma outbreaks are, I don't work on assumptions when it comes to asthma, its just too serious a problem. If it is pet dander, then you will need some kind of air filtration for your home as you still have Abby. Good luck...

Thanks, Tony! You're giving me great ideas for when I get grandkids someday! :)

Good luck on the grandmother clock; I thought you weren't going to put a quartz movement in that one, but at least the one in the stash is free!

Have a nice day!
