Deceiver

 
 
 

7/12//2019


    It’s been a little over a year since I redid this main page. Here is place for an overview of our year with some of the main events and a few things that are more trivial. It’s my only webpage that gets erased at year’s end.

    At the top of the page is the single biggest event of the year. Aria Wren Woodruff was born on June 24th 2019 to daughter Danielle and son in law Todd.
As of this writing we’ve only spent time with her once and she’s a sweetheart indeed. She, along with her brother Lincoln make wonderful additions to our families.



    Other than that it was a bit of a leaner year for us activity wise. We made a couple of trips. Last September Joyce and I attended to Thomas Point Bluegrass Festival in Brunswick Maine. We hadn’t been in ages and we enjoyed our six days of camping and music. We’ll do it again this Labor Day.


    We also did another trip to the southwest. During that trip we picked up on a few things we had missed the last time we were there including the VLA radio telescope and White Sands in New Mexico. We love traveling out west. Too bad it’s so far away.














We recently returned from a trip to Busch Gardens in Virginia. We rode roller coasters a lot and for two days. A great time with the Shenandoah Valley and other mountain ranges on the way back.












   

     And most recently we finished a trip to the Star Trek Museum in Ticonderoga NY.

    For the house I made a kitchen table and we purchased new chairs and a light to go with it. I also used commercial vertical blind parts and outfitted our windows with them, effectively rebuilding them to fit our purposes.


    And of course... the Surly Mermaid. She was built and launched July of last year and I’ve since sailed her many times and have been lucky enough to catch quite a few fish.




We also managed to hire a company to cut down five of our large pine trees. They were close to the house, the largest one had lightning damage, and we were concerned the winds will be greater in the future.














This is the list from last year and what I managed to accomplish (The checked ones).


  1. BulletDo some work at the rental in town. I need to do more maintenance items on it. I did some last year but before I get on too much in years...

  2. BulletA garden shed for Todd and Danielle? And, some work in their basement.

  3. BulletConvert the catamaran I purchased last year into a fishing platform.

  4. BulletFishing.

  5. BulletMake a kitchen table?

  6. BulletRedo the cellar stairway.

  7. BulletVisits to our kid’s and grandchild’s homes.

  8. BulletContinue to realize my great fortune to be married to Joyce.

  9. BulletContinue to appreciate my two great daughters and their significant others.

  10. BulletAppreciation for the rest of my family. They’re always in my mind.

A new list for the foreseeable future: I hope I get to the ones I missed in the past year. I’m sure something’s missing but it’s all I can think of for now.


  1. BulletDo some work at the rental in town. I need to do more maintenance items on it. I did some last year but before I get on too much in years...
