Chapman Lumber

It’s not so often we find ourselves in Thomaston. And it’s not so often we find ourselves in a full-service lumber yard/home improvement center. But on this particular Thursday, we were in both (and in our finest plaids). If you’re from the area, you’ll know we’re talking about Chapman Lumber, a (very lovely) family-run business, operating since 1981.

We chatted with owner Stuart and Lynn Chapman for a bit, had a tour…and then they left us all alone in the hardware department…

Naturally, when invited to go on a Chocolate Decadence Sunset Train Tour, we hop straight on to Amazon and find two hats (one conductor, one engineer), add to cart – check out. The next time we get together we hold try outs for who will be the conductor. We have to do our best “All Aboooarrrdddd!!” Little did Lora know, I’ve been saying it like that for a while. Anytime somebody mentions All Aboard Pizza in New Milford, I have to say “All Aboooooaaarrrddd.” I can’t help it. You can watch the video to see who ends up wearing the conductor hat 😉
