A quick trip to Vermont for labor and a few Fall colors

The insurance co. asked me to install some handrails at the house in VT. I'd already planned a quick trip up to see some of the Fall foliage. I ended up spending most of my time laboring. My duties ranged from replacing 9V batteries in smoke detectors, installing a Wi-Fi extender... and drilling holes for anchors in the granite block out front for handrail installation. That stuff is hard as a rock! I went through several masonry bits and spent hours on the hammer-drill. It was not an easy task.

I did manage to squeak out a couple hours for sightseeing and a quick bike ride. All pics were taken with an iPhone 6. I was a bit early for the peak Fall colors, maybe next year...

Two sides of table, coming up!

A guest at the house in Vermont suggested the blue room was too sparse. He specifically suggested two chairs, and two bedside tables.

I've made the two bedside tables, mostly from extra materials. The legs come off and the two tables will fit together to comply with carry-on luggage regulations.  


Now I just need to pack them up and take them to Vermont.

It was an Oktoberfest themed 20th anniversary party at Real Ale Brewing in Blanco TX.

We spent the hotter portion of the afternoon soaking in the Blanco River. I still have a few Heady Toppers left from my last Vermont trip.

and in BBQ news... We tried Terry Black's Barbecue 

Terry Black's BBQ Brisket Austin TX 

The brisket was good. I don't think it's better than Rudy's, but in the same range of goodness. Not quite as good as Franklin, but pretty close. We had no line to wait in and it's pretty near to our home.
