Smart children

Just over a week ago we were searching around the garage sales near home and we found some gems - a two drawer filing cabinet for $5, a bike extension for $7 (it brackets to an adult's bike turning it into a tandem), and a midi keyboard for $2. Well, the keyboard didn't com with a power cord and the battery cover was missing so when we got it home I just left it aside to be dealt with another day.


House back to normal

On the midnight of January 4th/5th our house flooded. Last Friday, March 7th, some nine weeks later, the last bit of repair work was completed. It has been two of the most frustrating months of my life, but ultimately we're coming out of it with what feels like an almost new house, which is giving us a vigor to get other parts of our lives in order. We've painted, rearranged, built a wall, done a major overhaul of the bathroom, and gotten rid of about 30 bags and boxes of stuff we no longer needed, and feel we have the space to actually live in our house again.


Lucky to be alive, car maintenance is important!

IMG_6388.jpgMy wife took our aging 2001 Mazda Protege in to Discount Tires for what should have been a normal visit to get the wheels rotated and balanced. Well, life around here is never that simple. No sooner than she had dropped the car off and told them what was needed than one of the workers came over and wanted to show her something on the wheel. As it turned out there was a huge crack in the wheel (see left) that completely severed one of its five spokes.
