My goodness, I just realized the last couple of “posts” I wrote are not in here! (Can’t imagine what I did wrong!)
If you recall last year, I mentioned how there was an entire millvan FILLED with frozen curly fries. I wish I would have kept track of how many times they’ve been served those so far this year! No matter – they are good! (We had them served with MEATBALLS.) I think my family can NOT make fun of my cooking anymore.
Two days ago I was toodling around in Ivan for most of the day. Took NASA/LDB people and flight crews out to Willy Field, and then after lunch drove out to the Pegasus airfield to pick up new pax coming on the big plane (C-17) from Christchurch. On the “open road”, in 6th gear, and floored, Ivan does 25.1 mph!!! When driving up a steep incline with only a partial load of pax he did around 6 mph. (I had a passenger with a GPS gizmo.) Ivan doesn’t even have a speedometer!
My silversmithing class is going well. Finished a turtle ring and did a simple band ring this past Thursday. I will take a photo. There are so many recreational programs to do, I haven’t had time to try ceramics! Last year I raced around trying to get it all in, PLUS teach pyrography. This year I’m doing a slower pace, and really enjoying just sitting around in the galley talking and learning from others. We have a couple of spinners who brought down RAW wool. (Yes, you can SMELL the sheep – as though you were in the barn with it!) One gal brings hers into the galley after meals. She spins, I knit and we both watch it snow out the window!
Time for work!
