Hmmm . . . . .

Totem pole? Not yet anyway. Our friends Terry & Ellyn had this gigantic tree taken down. He's determined to carve it with a chainsaw. Terry is a carver (www.oakforge.com), but this would be his biggest project to date. I thought he could just carve out a small Hobbit door and a couple of fake round windows up the trunk and tell people it was their guest bedroom. Oh, that's Terry in the middle. ■
It's a beautiful day out. 73º out, sunny, just a few clouds . . . ■ I've cut the lawn; gone to the gas station to refill the gas can - $9.34 to fill it. Who'd have thought you'd have to start budgeting for gas to cut your lawn? ■ Went to pick up an doctor's order to have my blood drawn again, but the doctor's office put it in the mail last night. I'll probably get it tomorrow, or Friday. I wonder what this test is for? ■ I still have to go over to Osco and pick up some prescription that's ready. ■
The weekend is over. It started Friday when our guests from Baton Rouge arrived and it's ending with everyone going to bed (including me in a few minutes). It was a weekend filled with fun and food. I cooked ribs on Friday night. Saturday we cooked speckled trout and large shrimp that our Louisiana friends brought with them - delicious. And today it was an encore of the trout and shrimp along with some pork on the grill. And that's not even counting the h'ordourves that were included at every gathering. All of this at 3 separate houses - a traveling-weekend-party. I think we've all got some serious dieting to do! ■ Good night.
That's Jac, my neighbor, working on putting the engine back together in his '90 vette. He had to take the engine apart (no problem!) and replace a head gasket - and now is in the process of putting it back together again (problem!). Ok, it's no problem for Jac, but I'd be totally lost working on an engine. ■ I've been working on a drawing this morning. I hope to finish it maybe tomorrow. ■ I need to get the oil changed in my car today. I don't put many miles on it, so instead of changing it every 3,000 miles, I change it every couple of months. ■
