Request: Door knob (Near the experimental farm) - Hello friends, I hope everyone is staying cool. The rain certainly helped to lower the stifling temperature today. Both of our bedroom doors have door handles with a lock. We don't have the keys. I am hoping to replace those handles with a door knob. Before making a trip to a store, does anyone have an extra door knob or two? Thank you for your consideration. Have a lovely day. K.
