Long time, no posts…a few updates

Once the weather turned a bit more inviting for being outside, sitting in front of the computer fell by the wayside. Not the best excuse for not writing, but it will have to do. Johanna’s birthday, Easter,  a visit from Eddie and Shep Barbash, spring planting, a quick visit from Jim Turbert, a visit with a … Continue reading

Had great meals at Green Street where … Continue reading

FlashBack/FlashForward

FlashForward: Rob is starting the mornings with a little fiddle practice, just like the old days! Has bought himself a violin,  paid for the tuner app for his iphone and googles for the tune he is learning. Old Timey music meets New Timey technology! He is doing it to remember the JimBoy who died last … Continue reading
