It's been a long time since the last update, but things have been busy lately. It's been a bumpy fall in terms of colds, sinus infections, ear infections, pneumonia, etc etc. Even the dog got an ear infection! But everyone is healthy at the moment, except for the most excellent noisy red car. I shouldn't be surprised after 13 years, but it's beginning to show its age.
Vicky organized a fundraising dinner for 150 of our close friends last Friday night. The keynote speech was given by the Rev. Dr. Peter Gomes, who was excellent. If you get a chance to see him speak (or preach) you won't be disappointed.
Vicky's step-father Vincent O'Gorman passed away recently. We'll miss him.
Back from vacation, and surprisingly little has changed. Where are the home improvement elves that we keep hearing about?
Katharine is sleeping in a big-girl bed! Vicky and I swapped her crib for a bed yesterday (a process which involved a lot more work than you might imagine, long story). Kath spent her first night in it last night and everything went reasonably well, although it's going to take a while to get her to stay
in the bed for any length of time.
Today is the first day of camp for both Tory and Katharine. It was nice to spend some time with both of them, but it will also be nice to have them at camp for a few hours.
Yesterday was Tory's birthday, we had a fun half-sleepover with some of her neighborhood friends. Also the first anniversary of the purchase of our house!
The past weekend was my 20th from high school. Pretty darn wierd, if you ask me. But it was interesting catching up with people that I hadn't seen in a long, long
, time. The worst part of the weekend was when someone pointed out that the seniors weren't born when we graduated.
Today the official Black Ink Systems
web site went live, along with the press release introducing the company and our products. Very exciting times!
Tory has been making fantastic progress at learning to ride a bike. See TorysBike
Want an idea for a really hot
Valentine's present? How about a new dryer! Who says the romance is gone?
Kath is getting over pneumonia and an ear infection. It's been a tough winter for that kid.
There's been a whole lotta barfin' goin' on around here lately. Kath, Tory, and Vicky have all been sick in the last few days. Not much fun, I tell you.
My father, TonyCabot
, a/k/a Poohpa, now has his own page on this site, and he's been busy uploading pictures of this and that. Between his new camera and mine, it looks as if I'll have to upgrade our disk capacity before too long.
Hope you had a happy holiday! I noticed that I didn't mention that I've started a new job, at Black Ink Systems
. Very interesting company.
The grey station wagon is not long for this earth. It's been a fun, but fussy
