I've started this blog several times and have come up empty. What the heck I'll give it another shot. I toured my old apartment the other day. I had gone to Arlene's house and my landlords were on their front porch. We chatted a bit then they asked me if I wanted to see my old apartment. The walls were ready for plastering and today (Monday) and there was a plumbers van in the driveway. So things are coming along. I'm still about a month away from moving back to the house albeit it will be upstairs from where I used to live.
I've been doing quite a lot of porch sittin', mostly back porch sittin,. Watching the planes climb from nearby Logan Airport. I actually found that sitting alone on the porch on a pleasant afternoon watching the planes head east towards the ocean or west quite relaxing. Wondering how many people were on the various planes. Where they were headed. Here's a quick video, about 37 seconds. Please forgive the dirty lens. I've never had this problem with my other cameras but I've got to learn how to clean this thing properly.
Vacation is several days away. We both can use it but Arlene in particular needs it. She's had a rough year so far. I hope the weather cooperates but even if it doesn't we won't be around here for a bit. It's mostly a change of scenery and a change of pace. We'll be on the road this coming Sunday morning at 6:30 A.M., and by 9:45 we should be on the island.
My sister has many of my fathers painting and she has a few hanging up as I did. She has many more but they are all wrapped and stored. I took pictures of the ones she had hanging but they didn't come out well. Here are two that came out ok.
Well that's all I got for now. Time to sleep as I have to work tomorrow. Six more days....
I'm outta here.
