GMan had a big one today. If we lived in Ireland he could vote and have a pint!
Always wanted to visit Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Webster MA. Jess and I took a Sunday drive on Labor Day Monday with the dogs.
After a short walk we headed to the beach but no doggy allowed so we checked it out one at a time.

That time of year again. This year we stayed local and went to Carlson’s Orchards right here in Harvard MA.
Not exactly a cool day for picking anything….bar a pint at yours local but nothing like fresh fruit.
Hard to believe that our little man who’s now a head above the rest of us is officially a teenager today.
Happy Birthday JMan…..love from all of us.
GMan, Koda and I took in a little fishing after work on Thursday. We went back to our old stomping grounds in Groton.
Koda hanging out with a very still dog.
Happy Birthday Jess from all of us and the animals. Love you.
It really should be random photos from this week, but given the weeks are fairly random nowadays I figure its okay to mix it up.
Clockwise from upper left. 1. Carlson Orchards in Harvard MA. A stones throw away with a little practice. They have a fine section of hard ciders. Worth a visit when this dan flu move on. 2. Chicken, broccoli, Alfredo pizza, just like you get at Evviva Trattoria…but better and without the bad acustics. 3. Red Velvet cup cakes we made yesterday…yum. 4. Harley and Koda ready to jump on some unsuspecting squirrel at the Harvard Public Library. It’s a cool building and one worth visiting. 5. Strange tree we found while walking the dogs. It’s like an upside down question mark. 6. Miss Planthead looking rather cool on the corner of our island.
We did our first burn last weekend. Like camping without the tent, sleeping bags, cots, gas stove, burned hand burgers, questionable facilities… assuming any are even available and all manner of other things required to spend a weekend in the woods without your house. Well actually, it was more like we were playing Irish knackers with the Hiace vans….except we don’t have the van either. On the other hand since we now live in Harvard MA I guess we really should pick up a Chelsea Tractor!
Now go figure out Irish knackers with Hiace van and Chelsea Tractors.
Have fun around the camp fire!
