We used to visit New Hampshire every August. It was cooler than Richmond or Overland Park and so, off we’d go!
Right now it’s a breezy 60 something out there, the sun is shining and there’s no – none! – humidity. Might even have to throw a blanket on the bed tonight. (Remember, I will whine about our weather in February…)
We celebrated our 37th Wedding Anniversary yesterday!
Yup – here’s a photo from 37 years ago.
There are 18 (I think…) Desmond cousins arriving this weekend. They’re Trabers and their mom was my dad’s sister. The one Desmond is the son of one of dad’s brothers. It should be an awesome week! They’ve rented a humongous house in Moultonboro, on Lake Winnipesaukee, not too far from us.
Today, I came out of the office to go to lunch – and had a flat tire. AAA came and changed it this afternoon but when I went to leave, the spare they put on looked a little not so airy. Couldn’t find Moffett on the cell so drove to a local gas station hoping someone would be there who would help. I don’t do air in tires. I did it once and emptied four tires, so I don’t do air. Anyway, our maintenance guy was there along with his son. Son, a local policeman here in town, very kindly came out and put the air in the tire. I’m still disgruntled that you have to pay for air! Seventy-five cents!
Haven’t seen mama bear and the cubs since I took the photos in July. Mama turkey wanders through and the baby turkeys (turkettes? turklings?) are not so baby looking anymore.
Chris has been in Santiago, Chile and Lima, Peru the last two weeks for work with Clorox. He wrote today to let us know that he’s staying another two weeks. He sent a photo of his dinner the other night and made us guess what it is. I was clueless. It’s called Cuy – and it’s guinea pig. Ewww, I don’t think I would eat that.
Our anniversary dinner last night – with my cousin Gerald who arrived early for the cousins’ week.
Oh – and the guy in the tux in the bottom left photo up there on the header – he’s the one who put car wax on our windshield before we drove off on our honeymoon. Totally denied it until our wedding pictures showed up and oh, look who’s holding the can of car wax over our car’s windshield. Thanks, Chuck – always makes me smile!
