Summer’s End.

Posted: October 23, 2020 in Uncategorized

What a long, strange trip this summer has been. Certainly when I retired a year ago, I didn’t foresee anything like this. We’ve been busy yes, but not busy the way we anticipated. Travel plans cancelled, no dining out, very limited visits with our beautiful grandson, but everyone is healthy, we got a lot done, so it’s OK.

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated my blog, so here’s a quick recap of all the fun we’ve had not doing the things we’d planned…

We got to watch Milo play ball before one of the kids in his Little League tested positive for Covid.
I got enough done on the DeSoto to be able to pull it out the shop under its own power and drive around the yard.
I spent the last two months on a HUGE remodeling project on the house. Beautiful new front porch, new roof, sidewalk, siding, and windows in the house.
The (almost) finished project.
After a winter open, I realized we needed an overhead door for the barn I built last fall. After that, we realized the shop looked awful and put matching steel on that, and new tinted glass doors.
Shop doors…
I treated myself and got something I’ve always wanted.
We went camping a couple of times…
…even if it was sometimes in our own backyard.
I got something I’ve always needed.
Regretting selling the ‘34 roadster, I filled that void with a ‘29 Model A roadster. Good home for the Hemi from the wagon.
All in all, we’ve had a good year, we’re grateful for what have, for our family, and looking forward to next year.
