Rummaging About

The big excitement on Friday was talking with the landscaper. He's going to develop a little plan for us so we have an idea of what we'll get for our $10K. So far it sounds like he'll move some dirt around a bit; add an awful lot of rock in various colors and install gates. Sounds like fun, huh.

Saturday night we went out to eat at the steakhouse located in one of the casinos. Overall, it was ok but I don't think we'll be taking any truly discerning guests there. The presentation of my steak was awful; one appetizer was cold when it should have been hot; the server was nowhere to be seen most of the time. It just wasn't good enough; we may go back sometime but I don't know if we'll even do that.

Part of moving into a new house is the opportunity to go through your things. I'm rummaging around in some of my computer backups finding things I wrote and photos I took. It's kind of fun but it makes me want to travel more especially in Europe. And just now we can't do that. So, here's to the memories!

Amsterdam, the Netherlands:

Antibes, France:

Rome, Italy:

Take care, it's dangerous out there!

Good luck Don. Two summers ago our landscaper dug us a nice hole for $6000 into which we threw another $6000 or so and ended up with a slightly larger flat area that is finally not up to my ankles in drainage water off our bank in back. Home ownership is so much fun!
