      Well, my grandmother has taken it upon herself to play match maker for me. Just what I needed right now on top of everything. Now to try and break it to her that I have someone I'm already interested in.



      I think that I just want to crawl under a rock and hide for about 2 years or so.......

      P.S. What on earth is going on with my title? I wrote "right" not <wbr/>

      Well I had a very enjoyable weekend.

      The flight out in the jet was smooth, no problems there

      A view of the interior.

      When I touched down in Bedford, MA at a small out of the way airport, I saw a CIA spy plane sitting outside a hanger. I'll look it up and post more information on it in a while.

      The graduation was smooth and it didn't rain as the forcast was predicting. I returned home late last night, arriving at 12.

      P.S. I still just love flying

    • Jet set...

      Well its all scheduled now,

      The jet is going to be waiting at the airport for me at 5 am Friday morning. 2 hours later I'm in Boston and head to MIT for my brothers graduation. It should be a good weekend. My parents have been out of town this week so I've had the house to myself. However thats not really saying much since I leave at 7 and don't get back till after 5 now what with French class and my job. Its ratha quiet around here with no-one within 150 yards of me. A bit lonely also. Well I guess thats what AIM and the phone are for. Cya!

    • Parades...

      Well,

      I shot 2 parades, and 1 set of speeches thats 636 photo's in 1.3 Gigs. I'm tired. Its was very hot out. I miss the weather in France, but I don't miss paying 2.5 Euros in a Resturaunt and only getting a can of coke. :-) Well now is off to French Class in the Morning. Should be interesting. Cheers and Happy Memorial Day. Never Forget...

    • On Headaches...

      Headaches...

      I think that headaches are one of the worst thing to have. I mean, I can work school work if I have a bruise on my arm, a chunk cut out of my leg or a nice big cut, but for some reason, it seems that the headache is almost the only thing that I can bring me to my knees in surrender. I've had a headache on and off now for about 24 hours or so. Its not good since in the morning I have to go shoot (photograph) some parades and a few speeches. Ugh, Speaking of which I have to unload my camera cards and recharge my batteries. Nothing like running out in the middle of something when you are supposed to capture it all.

      I think I'm going insane... or I will. But don't worry, I'm not sad about going crazy, I'm enjoying everyminute of it. :-p Ahhhh bliss.

    • Hot......Bleah....

      Howdy,

      Well its 91 degrees out. A bit to warm for me. Actually its waaayyy to warm for me. I prefer it to be about 70. Oh and I'll also take a pass on the mosquito's. On another note....

      What do you do about a broken heart....?

      Well, we just had a raging thunderstorm pass over my house. A good gully washer, thunderboomer...etc. Constant lightning, torrential down pours and gale force winds. Good times, good times. Atleast nothing fell on the house. :-)

      P.S. I just realized how incredibly tired I am. I should hit the sack but have too much work to do. Thats life I guess.

    • Under the hammer....

      Nope, not me, the grill I was assembling for my Dad. Its his birthday in 2 days. It seems that grill assembly always provides a fuel for cartoonists and humorists. I can see why. This is the second grill I've assembled in about 10 years. Most of it went fine and the instructions were clear. However... There was one leg that was about 1/8 of an inch off. I spent around 15 mins trying to hammer it carefully into place without damaging it, myself, or the rest of the grill. (it is a birthday present afterall.)

      I am reasonably proud of myself as the instructions list it as a 2 person effort, but I did it all by my little lonesome self. Well not all that lonesome, the little voices in my head gave me plenty of helpful hints. :-) The weather is just spiffing, and the air is fresh and clean.

      We also replaced our 25 year old lawn tractor. The old one was a Wheel horse. They used to kind of be the cadillac of lawn and garden tractors. When my great grandmother died we got her's. Then Toro bought them and they kinda got cut short, (pun intended). The new one, is comfier, doesn't break each time we use it (seriously) and a whole lot quieter. It no longer sounds like you are running a commercial wood shredder.

      Well thats enough for now. Drop by for a bit. I posted a couple new picts, (hence my new avatar or whatever its called.)

      Well, I'm back state side. It was a really good experience to live, study, and travel in Europe. I got to see and learn so much its kind of hard to get a good grasp on it all. It is good to be back home though. I've got a long full summer ahead but I think that it should be mostly enjoyable. Some of it might turn out to be kind of unpleasant, but I'll spare you the details, atleast for now.

      And finally, let me raise a toast to free refills, something which hasn't caught on over seas yet... :-) Go us!! Later.....
