The seller was following me around the house like a puppy dog, asking every 5 minutes, "Anything wrong?". I told him there was a problem with his chimney en...

There is a lot going on here. You have to marvel at the skill required to do some of this stuff, and wonder how they have managed to live as long as they have.
