October 1st 2014
I have not been good at posting blogs this summer- so it's time to catch up.
Bamboo flooring on the stairs
Power wash and paint the house
Repair and caulk
Replace dry rot
More scaffolding- this house has so many tough-to-get-at places
Finally some color other than brown
Replace a few windows
Rebuild the pantry shelves
Friends Ralph and Ann in their 1914 Ford
Still time to spend with friends- Mike and Theresia, Horst and Alice, Doug and Kathy, Carolyn and Mark, and Dawn and John to name a few.
And visits to and from, family
Our home-away-from-home, in Salem. OR . My brother Thane and his wife Kathy have let us dock at their house so many times that we've lost count!
While in Salem, Joan and I got to reconnect with Todd and Karon Springstead, Jeff's niece and her husband. The Springsteads have two children Kylie, a four year old daughter and Tavin who is almost 2.

Best of all...
Mom finally accepted our invitation to visit Port Orford! Sister Phebe drove up from Blue Lake, CA and we had a wonderful time. We hope we can make this an annual event!
Your traveling friends
