Kyle, Ashley, Brycen. Less wind. Mud again. Slowwwww.

Elaine, Brycen, and Gizmo

Kyle, Ashley, and their baby Brycen came over for a visit this evening. Kyle is our grandson; Shane’s son. We brought with us a box containing a bunch of albums of old family photos from Elaine’s side. Kyle had said he wanted to have them and go through them, so Elaine had several months ago gone through them all and marked as many as she could that were not marked showing the names of the people in the photos. Kyle is interested in family history, so he is a good one to keep those photos. Tonight he and Elaine went through the albums and Elaine (and I to some extent) helped him learn who the people were that he did not know. This will be fun for him.

Sapporo. Wind continues. Web work.

meal
This was my dinner. I only ate about one-fourth.

Part show, part great food, and part great company. That was our dinner at Sapporo tonight with Shauna and Casey Dockter. We had shared this with them the last time we were here, and looked forward to doing it again. Sapporo is a Japanese restaurant with your meal cooked in front of you on a large hibachi with lots of flair. These young chefs are trained to entertain, and that they do. We shared a Sapporo Special For Two – 8 oz filet mignon, 5 oz lobster tail, 8 pcs shrimp, 7 oz chicken. And we brought home about ¾ of each meal for leftovers! They will be yum. I enjoyed a saki-based martini and also had some squirted saki while the meal was being prepared. Continue reading Sapporo. Wind continues. Web work.

It started out miserable, but got better.

snowing
It’s snowing this morning

We were awakened around 2:00 this morning by a sudden burst of very strong wind against OurHous. This kept up for a long time, and it soon started raining. Elaine said this kept her partially awake for a couple of hours, but I went back to sleep again. When I got up the temp was around 48° but it kept dropping until by around 10:00 it was down to 38°. I had our rooftop electric heat going all night, but this morning I had to switch to gas heat; the rooftop heat pump units will not produce heat when the outside temp drops below the mid-40s. The wind let up this morning but was back with a vengeance around 10:00 or so and continued most of the day off and on. Continue reading It started out miserable, but got better.
