Last Day of April

Off to a slow start this morning.  Blame it on HAM.  We spent a lot of time yesterday messing with our Yagi Project.  You can read all about it by clicking here.  It was a fun experience and so we wrote that blog post this morning.  Then we decided to use Echo Link to join the morning gab-fest down in the Verde Valley.  Well, then the computer crashed and then we had to do a full System Restore and then some programs froze up and, well, here it is almost 9:30 and it feels as if the morning has escaped us.  Oh, well, that's how it goes sometimes.

Susun had a great day yesterday.  She flitted around town doing various Susun Things and then volunteered for Habitat for Humanity for 5 hours (1-6 pm).  She was FULL of Happy Stories when she returned from that cheerful gig.  Her glass was definitely a lot more than half full yesterday and we're not talking vino here.

We did go to that rummage sale at the high school and, yes, there were three items we couldn't live without.  Honest.  One was a two dollar golf bag.  Big whoop on the golf bag.  But the other items were these:  a set of LL Bean croquet mallets and an LL Bean wire container for the mallets and end stakes.  We scored each for a whopping one dollar apiece.  We left our extreme croquet set in Arizona and figured we would get lucky and buy another one up here.  Well, we got lucky yesterday so now we are back in the extreme croquet business.  We will have to buy some used baseballs at a thrift store and fabricate some wickets but that's really no big deal.  We're going to sell the golf bag along with a lot of surplus clubs we've accumulated.  I should have taken a photo of the total chaos in the high school gym.  What a weird scene.

There were lots of other nice little vignettes yesterday that we'd normally chatter about here but we're running way too late in getting a start on this, the last day of April.  Guess all that chatter will have to wait until Sunday.

Have a great day and Many Cheers!  jp
