The “cute” dumpster wasn’t enough to hold all of the scrap. From the stuff that was cleaned out of the corn crib plus the roofing materials, we had to get a extra dumpster for the rest. A 30-yard dumpster was brought over on Sunday after Thanksgiving, just in time to hold all of the rest of the junk from the garage, greenhouse, corn crib, grainery and the rest of the stuff from the house.


How To Get [Mesmerizing Fruit Hat]! 

When Warlords of Draenor launched last year, the much-anticipated garrisons were not quite what players had hoped.  Many cool features had been removed! :(  One such feature was the ability to make conga lines with your guards and followers

I’m happy to report THIS FEATURE IS NOW LIVE!

Step 1: Go to Valley of the Four Winds in Pandaria

Step 2: Go to the Imperial Grainary (map above):

Step 3: Find the bridge:

Step 4: Take a look under the bridge and loot: [Mesmerizing Fruit Hat]

**This IS NOT an account bound toy (yet) so you have to loot it on individual characters.**

Step 5: Use your Garrison Hearth!  DO NOT use the toy BEFORE going to your garrison or you’ll have to wait an hour to make your conga line!! 

Step 6: HIDE YOUR HELM!  This hat does not replace your current helm so if you have one showing, click Hide Helm in Interface > Display before using the Fruit Hat.


Step 7: Your guards and NPCs start dancing to your amazing rhythm and form a conga line!   They will conga behind you all around your garrison as long as you have the Fruit Hat buff!  

How long can you make your conga line?

Don’t feel like running around?  No problem!  Your NPCs will party with you instead!  CAN’T STOP THE BEAT

We’ve had a busy past few weekends. With a little extra time off, there was time made to work on the inside of the house. While we were working on that, the old grainery and corn cribs got a slight makeover.

Both buildings had seen better days. There were holes in each of their respective roofs that needed to be taken care of before the inside was ever touched. The corn crib was first and on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a cute little dumpster arrived and was plopped right in front of the corn crib.

On Friday, the roofers arrived to start the demo of the old roof. Most of the boards were in pretty bad shape, so they had to be replaced. The roofers made a quick job of tearing the old shingles off and filling the “cute” dumpster in a single day.

More in the next post, since Tumblr doesn’t like to add more than 10 photos at a time.
