A Winter Day’s Work

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Despite a whopping 11 degrees outside, Nate and I were able to get a lot of work done outside. We cleared the driveway and fed the birds…

We checked on an old friend…

And most important of all made fresh tracks in the snow.

Rachel’s Birthday

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

As I always seem to react: “Wow! Has it been another year already!”

Yes indeed Rachel is no longer “Baby Soo-soo”[1] Apparently she is now going to be “Sister Soo-soo” which seems a bit redundant.

Anyhow, here’s what you really came for.




  1. This is Nate’s nick name for her. It is best replicated by scrunching up your face, clenching your teeth together and using a raspy squeaky voice. []

January Skiing

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Many of these pictures have already featured on K’s Facebook gallery, but it took me a while to get them up on our personal gallery.

These shots are form our ski trip to Sunday River in Maine. K’s folks invited us up to join them in a condo right at South Ridge lodge. We joined them, K’s brother Jim and his girlfriend Robin. It was a fantastic location and we had a lot of fun. This was Nate’s first skiing (beyond our backyard) and he had four days of lessons in the morning. He progressed three levels to the point where he was in a group with kids several years older. He seemed to really enjoy himself.

We also celebrated Rachel’s birthday early which let us celebrate it for over a week!

Here are some shots.

I, Robot.

It would seem that I’m a bot. I received this query for a login at a site I frequent.
I haven’t a clue what symbols are being represented by this image.

Better send Deckard.
