More tattoo

So while my daughter was here for Thanksgiving dinner, she showed me more work on her tattoo.  Her tree now has branches, and he added more small animals at the bottom.  There are breaks in the branches because other animals will be added there later.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just waiting on the guests to arrive, 17 this year for dinner.

Sorry about my absence

Bogged down in grading, bathroom remodel almost done, attended the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Run last weekend.  M ran it, I couldn't because of a foot injury.  *sigh*  Fall came in fast and furious here, one moment it was September and worrying about October coming, I blinked and we're already in the middle of November.  I tell myself I will sit still when I get old, but I'm not sure I'll be able to even then.  :-)  Until I can get on top of all this grading, here's a lovely tree near our house blazing in its Fall colors.

Skeletons climbing

I've been so busy that I forgot to take pictures of this year's Halloween display. We moved things around, added new features, and had over 300 trick-or-treaters this year! This is the most we've ever had. We had multiple people handing out candy and they got overwhelmed a couple of times at the massive number of people swarming onto our property. Oh my! I told CK about the skeletons we added that we positioned to look as if they were climbing up the side of the house. I didn't get any pictures, but M did, so I snagged this one from her FB page.

We're also in the midst of a major bathroom remodel. Yes, we are gluttons for punishment. I will post on that as soon as the dust settles. We had the whole bathroom gutted down to the studs and expanded a bit. After 3 weeks of destruction, re-construction, wiring, plumbing and painting, we are finally at the tiling stage today. I'm really hoping it all gets done this week. Well, mountains of grading awaits me. Later!

Last full day in Europe

Ahh, all good things must come to an end.  Our European vacation is drawing to a close.  We leave Nice this morning to drive back to Barcelo...
