Those other ticks


Old two-room school enduring the precip, Luce County, Michigan.

Although it’s a drippy day, it’s relatively warm and we’ve been having a grand time. We went to town and bought a sheet of blue foam insulation to finish up the well house project (replacing the loose insulation that’s coated with dried you don’t want to know), since last year’s partial installation came through the winter without problems. We also bought Breyer’s natural vanilla ice cream for tonight’s modest celebration of one more tick on the personal odometer of life.

    Happy Birthday Sammy! Remembering a year ago, the little campfires, the river walks and the Proseco! So much has changed in one year, but some things are timeless.

  3. Maureen says:

    Happy Bday Sammy! Wish you were here or I there to make you another banana cake. Wishes for many more (both cakes and bdays, that is).

    I love the picture.
