We asked what they were during the building and pest inspection last year, just before we bought this old place. The building inspector had no idea. That made me uneasy, however he assured us they were doing no harm.

Mr Rooney, our most learned builder, has also surveyed the protrusions. He told us that he has worked on hundreds of Queenslander homes and never has he seen such a thing.
I could not help but take that as a compliment.
Jason is banned from removing them at this stage. He removed about ten or so, but I asked him to stop. Wouldn't we feel silly to have removed them all, only to realise that they were necessary?
Do you know what they are? Surely someone out there can shed some light on our mysterious bits of metal.
And to go completely off topic, Jason was going to Ipswich this morning and then has a special lunch to attend at Moo Moos in the City - it is not a very good vegetarian restaurant, judging by its name.
He wanted me to take a photograph of his tie. He's clearly fallen under the spell of Faux.
I reminded him that this blog was a renovation blog and that my avid readers were not interested in his work attire. It is what he doesn't wear during renovating that interests them more (isn't that right, Mrs Moerk and Madame Pooch?)
But he insisted. I complied. After I reviewed the photograph, I told him his tie looked a bit boring.

007 rolled his eyes and said, "Classic [long pause] is never boring."
Please note this will be the first and last image of Jason's work clothes. Other blogs do this sort of thing a million times better than us.
