Curren is like Sonic the Hedgehog these days. Drop him down and he starts racing off as fast as he can. We had a blast at the park yesterday letting him go as far as he wanted.

Today it was dry and below freezing in Indiana so naturally I spent the entire day moving leaves, acorns, wood and dog poop to various locations around my yard.

Yesterday I said goodbye to the Ford Escape I’ve owned for the last fourteen years. I drove it from sea to shining sea — 25 states, 3 provinces, and the District of Columbia.

Today I’m thankful for neighbors who see a man with way too small of a leaf blower for his yard and come to help bearing bigger engines.
