Zeke had to hang out near my work area. He tried to sneak off once, but digging is not enough of a distraction to give him the time he needs to disappear. By the end of the two hours he was content to hang out, sleep and watch me work. I am saving the water side for last.
We used 864 gallons of propane last year to heat and cook in our house. This was a drop from previous years. If this trend continues with our new freestanding propane stove in the dining room I think it will pay for itself in five years. The savings in propane is amazing.
