Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends, and have as much to be thankful for as do we. We were fortunate to host a good number of our relatives and friends Thursday. Joyce cooked and cleaned like crazy starting Tuesday evening, most all of Wednesday up to after 11 PM, and then was up again at 4 to put the bird in the oven.

With so much to do and so many coming to visit, I of course left early Thanksgiving morning to run the annual Feaster Five run in North Andover. I meet our cousin Michael at the starting line, and tried to locate cousins Chris and Kristin with no luck. It was a wonderful morning for the run, clear, sunny and not too cold. After the run, Mike and I both departed quickly to get back home. Although Joyce was under a lot of pressure and scrambling to get everything ready for the afternoon dinner, she was delighted to see me and hear that the run went well. That, and the roses helped too.

As we enter the holiday season, we wish you all health, happiness and the best of times with your family and friends.

Testing, Testing, Testing…

Slowly getting the new hard drive configured with the software we want and need, without all the clutter from extra programs loaded by the local shop. Also testing out Live Writer for keeping everyone up to date on what we are doing here.

Here are some pictures taken from the Webelos Craftsman Activity meeting last Thursday. They were taken with my cell phone camera (Thanks Chrissie!), and as you can see, they boys are all typical 9-10 year olds who will not hold still for a picture. Everyone had a good time.
