It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. I’ve been busy at home and I’m still doing hurricane repairs. Christian and I were roofing the garage yesterday. The east side is done and we are about halfway finished with the west side. I should be up there now, but I am taking a little break to read news, listen to C-Span and post on the blog.

Since my last post much has happened. I bought a tuxedo. Last year I rented one to go to a few Mardi Gras balls. We are going to a couple of them this year as well and it is almost cheaper to buy one.

We went to a ball two weekends ago. It was fun. There was a good band, and I danced most of the night. Lisa and I went with several friends, a couple them ladies with out their husbands, so I had to dance with Lisa and our lady friends. This kept me on the dance floor (lots of jitterbugging).

I didn't see anyone at the ball get drunk or act stupid. That's always good, because all it takes is one stupid drunk to ruin a party for lots of people.

We have another ball coming up this weekend (Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler). I hope we can again “pass a good time.”

I have a little less than 50 pages to go in Max Hastings’ book Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-1945. Wow! What a great work of history. I cannot recommend this book enough. It well written and gives pros and cons for all sides, and it moves from macro views of battles and then it zooms in on individuals -- military and civilian – Russian, German, British, American, Dutch, Pole, etc…

I have to get to work. I can only work until 3PM then I have to pick up the little boys from school and help with homework and supper.

Coram Deo,

I was wondering where you've been. I presumed you were working a lot, either at the plant or on the house. I've been intending for some time to pass your way. I told Matt weeks ago that I was going to take him to lunch. I also want to see our newly remodeled LC store. I've been told that it looks better than ever.
