Home Brewer?

That large glass vessel on the left (called a carboy) is exactly what I use to ferment my homebrew in. Wonder if our worker made a little hooch on the side.

Bed gear

See that rip in the comforter on the line? I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s related to the metal bed frame leaning against the wall. When we made the beds at the cottage, despite our mother’s persistent warnings, rips to the sheets from all the pointy metal stuff underneath were unavoidable.
