Sep 28, 2009 - Millerton Mayhem

Well, I finally took so many pictures -- action shots, if you will -- that I had to load them into a Picasa album - http://picasaweb.google.com/lynxtree/MillertonMayhem?feat=email# Rob is clearing some dead trees off the property so we loaded up the ATV, sprayed ourselves with tick repellent and off to the woods. How many men have mothers who will force into the trees and clear brush while their son is droppig trees nearby. I only had to run for cover once. There are also two pictures of Rob with his frogs. I tell you, it's amazing. I...

Sep 25, 2009 - Berkshire Day

First -- the photos. The Millerton Frog Pond -- I still can't get the froggies to pose in the sunlight. But then, the sunlight has been limited the last two days. I'm really trying to believe that it isn't because Rob isn't here. Too spooky. The Millerton View -- from Rob's and Helen's back patio. The mountain in the distance is Indian Mountain. Nurtures the soul, it does. The color is just begining here and in the Berkshires. I tried to catch a few spots where I could safely pull off the road and take a picture. There were even lovelier...

Sep 21, 2009 - Millerton

For the "visuals" among you -- photos! I love Rob's patio. I'll work on getting a good picture of the view out over the valley. There was fog this morning, and it still hasn't burnt off. I'll also try to get a picture of some of Rob's frogs. He's very proud of them and a bit fond of them. He and I spent yesterday out on the patio, walking the rail trail nearby, and grazing at the organic market down the road. We did grilled-in-the-husk corn last night with organic sausage braised and then grilled. Rob and Helen will be back up here on...

Sep 19, 2009 - Road Cats

I love travelling through Pennsylvania -- this time on I-80 which is not quite as ruggedly lovely as the Penn Turnpike, but is is lovely. I-80 rest stops, unlike the Penn Pike, do not have Starbucks. This was the first time I had been on this route, and passed through the counties where my Sininger ancestors first settled when they came from Germany (Mercer) and the county (Centre) where the 2nd and 3rd generation Maurer immigrants homesteaded half a century before the Sininger's arrived. It's a softer land than that in which the Crawfords...

Jul 20, 2008 - New York at last!

We left Kansas on Tuesday, July 16th after having a fresh water tank leak repaired. I loaded Latte last (after the family archives, stuff going to the kids, Jemma and Keeks). By the time I came back in for her, her ears were halfway down her head, her shoulders were slumped, and dejection oozed from her whole body. She gave a big sign as I picked her up and headed for the RV. The girls settled right in and we began rolling along I-70 -- and rolling and rolling and rolling -- we went straight through to Columbus. You may rightfully ask why I...
