Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all. Remember, stay away from green beer. Like Henry Ford said “it only comes in black”….real beer….well stout that is!

Phase 3

Third times a charm. We closed on the new place the other day. Now its time to finish the plans, submit and move forward.

Good news is Subu fits nicely in the garage.

Fell off the rails…

I fell off the rails for a few weeks. Here’s a few photos to keep you all amused.

Koda keeping an eye on the trail.

And wondering how to get at the water during our evening hike.

Interesting railing idea. Looks like 4″ spacing so it will pass inspection!

Calling the flock, North Church – Portsmouth NH

A different sort of calling…the draw of water.

JMan on the water

JMan and I went for a little paddle this morning. We put into the Nashoba at 119 and headed north. Along the way we saw all manner of birds but not one fish. The river was quite as it was looking like rain.

The boys in dry land. I decided to go cross country rather than back tracking!


Kittery Trading Post trip

We did a trip to Kittery Trading Post in Kittery Maine yesterday. It was a grand day to walk around inside. I needed to pick up a few extra magazines I ordered for my S+W Model 41 and some cheap fodder (ammo).

Upon arrival the GMan and I went up to the gun department and spend a good amount of time fondling the wears. I was particularly impressed with the weight or lack there off on a the Benelli auto shot guns. They feel great and shoulder very well. Perhaps when I have a few extra dollars I’ll buy one. We looked at a few kid size .22 rifle’s that would be a good first gun for the GMan. All breach acton single shot where you have to slow down and think about each shot, not just pointing the business end down range and blasting off a mag full.

We visited the Under Armor store and scored a few item well below the regular price. We also picked up a floor lamp in the Create & Barrel outlet. All was fine till the JMan decided to head but something sharp in the back seat of the car, don’t ask as I have no idea what, but the kids were horse playing. He gave himself a nice gash above his eye, but a few napkins later he was fine.

Other that the trading post the highlight was lunch. We went to “When Pigs Fly” pizzeria and bakery. The food was great and I highly recommend it if you are in the area. However, the bakery is to die for! The breads are out of this world with every possible combination you can think of. We ended up bringing home six loafs and two jars of preserves.

All in all it was a nice day trip.
