After the Storm


The storm has passed and we are getting back to normal. We had to store away lawn ornaments, grill supplies and yard furniture because "anything can become a missile". I had visions of my gnomes diving into the neighbors windows. My gnomes look pretty angry from being locked into the garage. The middle one looks extra surly.


I have been biking with Stephanie and she is getting braver and more comfortable. We are beginning to venture a little further away from home each time. Here are some old training planes. I was trying to get Steph to do a Slim Pickens pose like in Dr. Strangelove, but the best she could do was to hang on the back engine thing.





Jerry was missing his Vespa and was ready to take the next step. Check out his new bike!



I was a lace knitting fool during the hurricane action. There was something calming about the repeats.



Katherine finished a purse. I only had to help her with the seaming. She makes me proud, my mini me!


Calm seas to you.

Random question, found your blog online. In Feb 2007 you had 2 pictures of your neighbor's dog Blackjack. That dog looks just like my mystery doggy!!! I want to ask them about their dog, maybe they know what he's made of or maybe he's a sibling. Is there a way to reach them or give them my email address? Thanks.
