The weather has improved, the rain has stopped and the sun (gasp) was out this morning for our second cup.....quite chilly, but sunny. We're not doing anything very interesting, except painting and sorting, pile making, boxing up and daily trips to Goodwill (Dave calls it Oldwill, oh Dave).
Robin says its the ultimate recycling. I say its out of sight, out of mind.

(no, he's not deliberately painting the soles of his shoes, it just happens)
Last night we were able to slip into our dear friend's (Barb and Bob) busy schedule and met them in the pretty old town of LeRoy (birthplace of Jello) for dinner. We enjoyed seeing them and catching up over a pretty decent meal. We hadn't seen Barb since she was on a volunteer mission to Mexico, helping to build a potable water system for people living in the very rural area near Chiapas.
We were pleased to see Gerry and his wife Pele while we were waiting for our food at the old Eagle House. Gerry is a great, smiley guy who worked for Dave at AIM Co. before becoming his business partner. Eventually, it was Gerry (and partner Tom) who was instrumental in allowing us to go on our Excellent Adventure and enter this wonderful new phase of our lives. They bought out Dave's interests in AIM and set us free!

all the recent rains have turned it a very muddy brown.
