-hopefullly your labors have been rewarded with a relaxing and good weathered-labor day. my heart and prayers go out to those on the gulf coast who are now weathering the storm.
-the volvotron is home after a small and frustrating adventure. i got it started in the parking lot at work and got it about halfway home before it died again, not to be restarted. I called AAA only to find that my membership had expired and I had to buy a whole new membership in the Northern New England Club. They have a rule about not letting 'new' members buy the AAA plus coverage until their second year. Fortunately the car was about 5 miles away, so I didn't have to pay extra. In any case, unless I can do a cheap reliable fix, i'm going to junk it. I think the problem is an ignition problem. maybe it needs a new coil. doesn't matter. we can do a single-car life for a while because KT's job starts later than mine and ends earlier. I may also start car pooling with a co-worker.
-we have had about 6 days of perfect weather. today we're going to Damariscotta Lake State park to sit on the sand, read and maybe even take a dip. the last time we were on the lake it was like bathtub water.
-last nite the stars were so brite you could see the 'milky way' strip across the sky
-tomorrow morning i leave for Deere Is for what I hope will be a smooth raising.
-get up from your computer right now and enjoy the outside. it will be winter soon.
