I am particularly pleased with the original stone fireplace — a real fireplace where I can burn real wood. Jim had hated the smell and mess of ashes, so we’d enjoyed the highest-priced artificial gas logs he could find — for both our living area and den. Gas logs are warm, but just not nearly as satisfying as the real thing. I look forward to the cold West Texas winter to try it out. Actually, with this heat and drought, I just look forward to any temperature below 80!
“What’s that?” I asked.
