Today I did another walk through the house in the hopes of testing the water in the basement shower and to see the interior of the garage. I still did not get the water to work but hopefully we can figure it out before we move in.
While walking in and around the house, I noticed a few things. One nice feature is that there are raspberry bushes along the south fence in our backyard. Sophie will love this and I am sure we will be removing prickers from her skin for at least the next 10 years. Another interesting thing we discovered is depicted in the photo below:
I am not quite sure what it is and would love to hear people’s thoughts. It is embossed with “John Westwick & Son Co. Chicago”. Even if you have no clue, please offer a suggestion. A pint of homebrew to anyone that has the correct answer. The first guess we got was from a fellow co-worker, Chris. He suggested that it was a venom extractor. It seems like a good guess but I am not sure how useful it would have been to someone living in this house.
52 days to closing and counting.
