This was supposed to be one of Roger's last days of driving school bus. He got a call that same November to go back and instead of substituting, he had his own route. He has finally finally FINISHED driving school bus. However, he still gets calls when something in the inner workings of the bowels of the school doesn't go just right.
See everyone next blog and its been fun looking at all your pictures. See you soon in SH Debby.
So the guy in the air conditioned office told Ann Marie there was a view of downtown Boston from the top of the hill. 102 out that day. The path at each fork in the road was chosen by the one with the most shade.The climb wasn't easy but we made it. Only to discover our view was obscured by all the 99% humidity. We loved the arboretum and would like to go back in the fall or the spring or the 60's.
This was on a tour we went on October. These people climbed through the barriers that the guide had just told us not to go out on rocks as a child had been swept away from an errant wave awhile ago. But these people were German and either didn't understand or decided to go their own way. Nothing happened but it was pretty dangerous.
Didn't get to blog yesterday so posing this today. Apparently Baby Gracie does not like her cousin's idea of driving. I don't know what we were thinking. Now the boys are on go carts and electric scooters but Grace not a passenger.
I forgot to post the best wheels of all. These belong to Zachary. He is a car hop at Sonic. It is only about a half mile from here so he wheels himself to work and back. And yes, I do know that some bloggers know how to add to a post. I would not be one of them.
I had nothing I liked for this subject so I went for a walk in the sunshine yesterday. This Harley belongs to the woman two doors down from Michelle, they were cleaning out the garage so she had it parked on the street. The kids bikes were by the park.
While I was slaving away at work last summer, these 2 were slaving away in my apartment...and it was 102 degrees here! They painted furniture INSIDE because it was too hot out! And I came out and it looked GREAT!!!
No, this was not the new man in my life. We went to the Goodwill in Danbury and there was something in the store window I wanted to see, so Brenda had to take a picture. Really. We went to 7 thrift stores in 3 days when Brenda came to visit. Yup. Crazy.....
When we get around to painting our exterior doors, we plan to replace the knobs and locks with these.
P.S. Our colors, Patti. The house is a yellowy beige (the name of the color evades me right now), the foundation is a little bit darker khaki color and the three exterior doors will be Behr Mythic Forest. We're still undecided on the color for our new and old decking. The old decking needs a lot of attention. Here is one BEFORE picture and two IN PROGRESS pictures. (Someday, we'll have the AFTER pictures.) Oh, and the door paint color-to-be.
Here is another of the things Dick has done since he retired in Jan. He replaced the old knob type assembly on our garage door with this handle type. It used to (for years) blow open all the time and bang in the night. Now it stays closed. If I had known how handy he was going to be I would have encouraged him to retire earlier.
Weather is STRANGE this winter! Not much snow in the NE and my friend in AZ sent me this last month. Her husband was in fact golfing this day. Makes it hard to find the ball. Her poor dogs were so confused and shivering.
Sophie and Dalton in the rain picking up nightcrawlers..
They tried to hold an umbrella instead they put Jim's coats on...
Linda and I touring NYC on top of a bus....It was so cold but they did provide us with lovely rain gear...It was one we could hop on hop off anywhere....So we chose to hop off at a place to get some soup and coffee...Funny thing is if I remember correctly neither of us got soup...
