Damon's New Ride

Yesterday we went down to Rutland, VT and Damon bought this 1976 Triumph Spitfire. It is dark blue with silver stripes.
Traffic was a bit slow but the drive was nice. On the way back we got a great view of a mostly full moon over lake Champlain. And we got to see the work being done on the new bridge in Port Henry.
It is supposed to rain all week and as is typical it is already getting pretty cold so odds are good that the car won't be out of the garage until spring.

Mid-Semester Catch-Up

As usual the mid semester crunch hit and I haven't posted in a while. But lots has been happening. It didn't help that I have been sick with a cold since October 1st.
We had some electrical work done and the entertainment center is now able to be placed on the other side of the living room. While looking for a corner unit entertainment stand I discovered that they have ones that have electric fire inserts. I have always wanted a fire place in the living room, its not the same as a real fire, but I am willing to make do. It comes complete with fake flames and an electric heater. It also takes up a lot less space in the room.
Damon's folks came up for the Columbus day week. We visited the Wild Center and a couple of the area orchards. Pat also attended the quilt guild meeting with me on Wednesday.
