I’m not making much progress on the boat. Hard to get going after work every day — and I seem to have something going on most evenings anyway. I’ll start in earnest on Friday. I received the boatbuilding book, although I’ve yet to crack it.

Maine, by the way, was great. My family and I marched in the Wiscasette parade. Here’s the picture:

That’s Uncle Jack on the left, me in the center, and my brother, Greg, on the right.

See, we were a lawn chair drill team. Whenever we took a break from our formation to relax, our collective kids (dressed as mosquitos) would run up and start stinging us. Then, we’d call for the “Off Cart” which sprayed water out of that nozzle on the top. Then the kids would scatter.

It was quite fun.
