Black stuff from the ceiling
One of those lazy days today... We got up late as the rain was hitting the roof and then had breakfast... While we were eating we noticed black tar running down the walls by the chimney. It was coming out from between the wooden slats in the top corners of the roof. As quick as we were wiping it, it kept coming back. Del got up on the roof and removed the chimney but as the fire was going it was difficult to see what the problem was. It seemed like it was running from the collar in the roof but we couldn't get to the source. We will have to let the fire burn out tonight and maybe look tomorrow. We have stuck a piece of kitchen roll up there in case it appears again. We had a nice casserole which we cooked on the Morso, and just chilled the rest of the day.
