Vacation Report

OK, getting back up to speed here after a relaxing weekend. Saturday:

Reading, shopping, friends over for dinner. Sunday: Down to Jones Beach to

watch the Blue Angels (US Navy fliers aerobatics team) — sensational. Then

family movie rental — Tom Hanks in CASTAWAY — v. good. Monday: Finished

jigsaw puzzle with Nellie, put up flagpole on tree house.

Did I meet my Memorial Day target for finishing the tree house? Sure did:

it’s finished. The grand

opening party was rained out, though. Adding up receipts, I am amazed to

see I spent over $1,000 on the darn thing.

Now (sigh) I’ll read the newspapers.
