Not much to report today. I made a ToDo list for the weekend and it is long. At least it will be cool for the yard work. The list doesn't even include anything about getting the house ready for market. I do have to go to Walmart or K-Mart and get a new fire extinglisher and a smoke alarm for the basement. They made a new law requiring the seller to provide them. I always provided my own. You have to have a fire extinglisher in the kitchen. I have one but it is old. How about a box of baking soda next to the stove? At least you can wash it off your food and eat it. I wouldn't eat food that I sprayed with chemicals. If the pan catches on fire, turn off the gas and put a lid on it. Oh well, these are minor expenses. The electrical may be expensive. The bathroom outlet has to be grounded. My bathroom has no outlet. The buyer can put their own in. I guess I'll have to remove the extension cord I have running through the hole that the radiator pipe goes through from the bedroom. I have an electric candle pluged in to it. I put it in the window one Christmas and left it there as a night light. I have a couple extension cords. One is in the living room. Ted removed the outlet when he hung the joists. I ran an extension cord up from the outlet in the basement to plug in the lamp. At least I don't have to do much with them except unplug them. I don't know about the laundry room. I may have to get the outlets in there grounded. It has old wiring except for the dryer which is on it's own outlet.

The first floor has easy access to the basement if I have to get it re-wired. My brother may be able to do it.
