back from boston

an eventful weekend!
 
We visited our new house with a contractor and have laid plans for the hardwood floors to be redone, some minor repairs to the gutters, and a couple of other fixes—which room will be the corkscrew room has yet to be determined.
 
And, we got an offer on our Chicago house, so everything is in motion.
 
Then, to top it off, some cat emailed me asking about a syroco piece.  He just wanted info, which I provided.  He then offered it to me for sale.  After brief negotiations, the corkscrew pictured below is on its way.
