Grand-Nephew

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

Millie, Joel, David, Rachael, and Jared were up in Casco with us last weekend. I’m not sure what I have of Jared after his baby picture in a pre-blog journal entry. Now, at 2 years and a couple of months, he gleefully says “cheese!” all by himself and mugs for a camera whenever one is […]

North Pine Hill Road

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

On April 8 Matt and I took our mountain bikes out for (what seems to me in my out-of-shape state as) a good long ride. Back in the winter Joel and I had started out to get a fire door for the cellar on a very foggy evening. The map showed what looked like a […]

Crash

Two weekends ago (was it? whatever.) Anne and Matt rented a couple of DVDs in Cambridge and brought them up to Casco. We watched Good Night and Good Luck on Friday and Crash on Saturday. I’m just a little too young (!) to remember the McCarthy era as such. I do remember my parents being […]

I didn’t resume reading Everything is Illuminated as I had planned. We had heard two separate stories by Shalom Auslander on “This American Life” on NPR which I liked. I checked on Amazon after hearing the second. His book Beware of God was out in hardback and was due out in paperback on March 28. […]
