Just A Few More Jobs....

We seem to have just a few more jobs to finish. Today I installed a small writing desk for Shelley and our good friend Mike came by and measured for our aluminum dodger. I also got most of the deck scrubbed down.

Here is one of the windows for the new dodger:

The time is getting much closer. In some ways it is still a long way away, in others, it is just around the corner... Now we have a ton of stuff to get done around the house. In a few weeks we are planning to have our first garage sale and we have invited our kids to claim whatever they want before we sell everything in the house...

The last bit of news is that we bought a new laptop to replace my old one. With any luck it is new enough to be useful for at least the first few years...

    Where can I find a shirt like the one you're wearing? It's spectacular!

    Nice chronicle of your trip.
    Hope ribs are better.
    I spoke to Merv Auger a couple of times, since Albert's passing.
