Especially since the hot water is once again flowing! Yes, after numerous calls to the tank manufacturer, Mark and Ben worked this afternoon on removing the burner assembly on the old hot water heater. Tech support at the company advised Mark on how to clean the tiny orifice that was plugged on the pilot feed tube. I guess there are many bonuses being married to a mechanical engineer. One thing about Mark is that he has the tenacity of a terrier to follow through when he needs information, and he isn’t the least bit intimidated asking for it!
Well, then, now that the hot water is back…and I was the first to luxuriate in a tub of warm water!!!….I will recommence with our little Saturday adventure!
After Angus had his opportunity to nearly run us into a ditch drive the truck, we were off once again. The next stop on our itinerary was Sauder’s Store. Wow, I think we are addicted and Mark enjoys going there just as much as I! I had to smile when I saw the little “oops” in the spelling on the sign out front….
I cannot complain, as I think it must be difficult placing the little letters in proper sequence, let alone getting spelling perfect!
After leaving the store, we headed back to Seneca Falls. Mark needed to fiddle around a little with the GPS, so he pulled over at a spot I suggested. For anyone who has seen the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, an interesting bit of trivia is that the town in which it is set might be based upon Seneca Falls. Seems Frank Capra (producer and director of this classic) passed through the town and was quite enamoured by it. And so, it wouldn’t seem the least bit surprising that the bridge we parked near would be on “George Bailey Lane”!
Now, why I didn’t photograph the actual bridge itself is beyond me. (Fort hat matter, I didn’t catch Zuzu Cafe, either..named for George Bailey’s daughter, Zuzu in the movie.)
Well, I did notice the insanely bright bushes in front of the truck!
Oh, and a couple of starlings perched upon the railing….
Seneca Falls has another notable bit about it. Why, even drifters upon the water are alerted to its fame…
Yes, Seneca Falls is noted as the birthplace of women’s rights here in the USA! The Seneca Falls Convention was held here in 1848 with some progressive women who advocated equal rights for women. The ball began rolling right in this picturesque little town!
I noticed some statues along the water and I am totally unsure what they are all about, but I will certainly be finding out on my next outing to this lovely town!
Well, we ventured out to see all these sights and were ready to move on along by mid-morning. We still weren’t done! I will finished up our little tour in the next entry!
As a little addendum here, for those who feel so inclined, please pray for my dear friend, Laurie, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I am sure she will greatly covet any and all prayers uttered on her behalf. Thank you!
