It's been a happy spring, if confusing at times.
I had a birthday last month, and decided not to go the traditional
cake-and-wrapped presents routine. I think that's sort of why I'd gone off
birthdays a little; it gets to feel a bit of a command performance at times, the sort of thing people expect you to do because "Everyone does."
I and a couple of my relatives went on a road trip to Mt. Washington.
Not all of us were up to climbing that, so we took a different approach to
reaching the summit: the Mt.Washington Cog Railway.
It was amazing. Just the most beautiful view of the Presidential Range
at the top.
Going up to Washington's summit has been one of the items on my BIG to-do
list. I may try the climb in a couple of years, if I can get into better
condition. (Though I'll advise anyone who makes the trip, by either rail or foot: seriously, wear winter clothing. I kid you not. There were patches of unmelted snow along our route, and the winds at the summit are
Of course, I took pictures. I'll try to upload some later.

The presents I DID receive were muchly appreciated, however. Still reading MacAvoy's The Third Eagle, which is wonderfully written.

I'm after another Macavoy book that I think you'd like. The trouble is that most of them seem to be out of print.

(The ISP dumped me. I cam back and you'd gone.)

I've been trying to get you a copy of "The Book of Kells" by Macavoy. So far I've had two from Amazon, one too well worn - but the other shouldn't have been sold as in good condition.

I'll look forward to the Gemini egg. (I rather like Geminis of all descriptions, now) but I may not be able to get on-line much this evening. I'll be on late tomorrow and probably most of Sunday.

I hope you're having a lovely weekend - give the caterpillas my regards!
