Thursday morning, we drove up to Jon's Aunt Janet's place in Hamilton, Ontario. We stopped at "our" Wal-Mart at the two hour mark for a bathroom break and to buy some snacks. (I think we've stopped there every time we go that way - it must just be at a good break point.) (More)

The line at security at the Orlando International Airport was short and quick. There was only one man in front of us to go through the x-ray machines. He had a lot of stuff (now that I think about it, way too much for legal carry-on) and he had to take his laptop out of its bag, etc. (More)

Mom found this house while canoeing in the Merrimack River, and thinks it is just perfect for us. It does look great! There is a lot of land (13 acres) and a lovely place for the Black Rabbit to launch from.
We have gotten used to Pittsburgh housing prices, so anything is a shock, but this house is fairly expensive in my mind, though probably quite reasonable.
It needs a lot of work, and of course, I would need to find a job, and see how the community is, etc.
Update: the address is 250 West Road, Canterbury, NH. It is 50 or so minutes from my parents.

We recently switched our automobile insurance to State Farm, because Amica doubled their rates on our homeowners policy, a bait-and-switch sort of thing - they told me the estimated rate, and I agreed, spent a month trying to get the inspector to come look at the house. (More)

There have been a number of things we wanted to work better on the Flying Junior, but mostly because it is hard to find a sailboat store in Pittsburgh, we hadn't gotten around to it. (More)

In a sales flyer I got recently, there was a line at the bottom that said, "Not responsible fro typos."

Sunday after church Jon suggested we go sailing again since we did not make it the day before. (More)

This was quite the weekend of the sailboat. Saturday's adventures pale in comparison to Sunday's, but I want to write them down anyway. (More)

On Monday after dinner, Jon said, "How about if we go sailing?" So we packed up and headed down to the boat ramp near his work - on the Monongehela almost under the Birmingham bridge. (More)

My friend gave me an update on our mutual friend whose baby is due next week. The doctors want to induce now, a week early, "because the baby has lost weight." How do they know this? By ultrasound. Which can be wrong by a pound or more in either direction. (More)

I have discovered a fun and convenient way to water our plants. Our air conditioner drips about a gallon of water a day if we run it all afternoon. If I put our watering can under the drip, it fills it in addition to keeping water off the porch carpet. Then the next day, I have a full watering can ready and waiting to water the plants!

It's taken a long time and persistence, but I have now succeeded! Today I bought several gallons of oil, milk, and orange juice, and I did not bring a single bag home! (More)

This morning when I went downstairs, I saw one of the baby robins out of the nest on the ledge! Later when I went by all three were in the nest. I knew it wouldn't be long. Just now I checked and the nest is empty! Now they will spend two weeks learning how to be grown up robins, and after that they will be on their own.

After much disturbing of the poor robins, I have taken off the paneling over the window and have a lovely view of the nest. It is at a rather awkward angle for the camera, but I can still get some shots. (More)
