Lots of lawn-mowing on this first hot day of late spring — tall grasss out back had gotten away from me  — then a good shower and hair drying out on the back deck leaves me looking black-fly bitten and wrinkled, but fluffy — so interesting to see how I look in my 80th year 
(I’m 79 so I really am in my 80th year — amazing to realize that)

Lets have some fun!

Now that I have spent a lot of time the past few days learning the technical nuts-and-bolts of running a blog, it is time for a somewhat whimsical post to get thing moving along.

It was minus 15F here in North Calais, Vermont this morning – brrrrr, now up to plus 14F and a cozy 67F here in my office.

So to warm things up a bit, here is a photo from last summer — my very first time on a paddleboard — at age 78!!!

Future posts will have more substance than this one!
