Holiday at Englewood Beach, Florida

Deep sea fishing was one of those things that are like going to a NASCAR race at Talledega...I'm happy I did it and I see no need in doing it again. It was fun. We caught about 12 small fish yeilding about a pound and a half of fillets. The most amazing part of the trip were these dolphins that were following the boat on the way out of the harbor. Beautiful....

I'm back at it again

Well, after being lazy for months, I'm starting to work on the house again. My good friend Frank is coming over once a week to help me. He'll be over tonight to continue closet framing upstairs.

This weekend I installed the final window on the first floor. Of course when I framed it up (months ago) I framed it wrong so I had to modify the opening a bit. I did most of the work with a chain saw from the inside of the house so, of course, it made a huge mess. I knew I was going to have to buy a vacuum cleaner eventually and since I have a rug over the subfloor (which now had sawdust all over it) this was the time to buy it. I was amazed at the amount of dirt that a cheap vacuum can gather! The rug looks much better now as does (what will eventually be)the living room!

I guess I'll buy a camera for myself for Christmas so I can take some pictures. Words by themselves are so boring!

Opening day - Cotton Patch Gospel

Tonight is the first of eight performances of the "Cotton Patch Gospel", the last published work of the late Harry Chapin. I have been practicing as a guitarist in the orchestra and I hope I'm ready. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

On another note, I lost my cell phone. I don't have service, but I had all my contact phone numbers on it and I used it as my alarm clock. Since my Cannon camera quit working, the cell phone was the only camera I had. Now I have no camera. That expalins why there aren't any recent pictures on the blog, doesn't it!

Time to go camera shopping!
