Well, it has been a long week but it is finally over, TGIF!! Nate and Bob have been gone all week. Bob informs me, however, that when he and Nate were out of town that they checked the web site to see what was happening back here at home. So, this site is useful. Loopy has Dominica’s car today as his is in the shop.
So here is a funny story to come out of working at Lockheed – Martin / DoD this week… One of the guys that I worked with was Mike. Mike was staying in Ithaca with his girlfriend and driving down to Owego the same as me. Today he mentioned that he actually was from Norwich. (Yes, Norwich!) So, I asked him if he knew Kate Stillman (since Mike is about two years younger than me, I thought that there was a chance.) “Kate” he said, “Of course I know her, she was my next door neighbor.” For those of you who don’t know who Kate is, she is now Kate Ayers, Phil’s wife. So, I thought that that was a pretty big coincidence. Anyway, Phil and Kate never actually read this page so I will see how long it takes for them to get back to me about this.
Other than that, not much good came out of working all this week. The new parts for Dominica’s computer are in and I am trying them out right now. She has been without a computer for at least a week now and my second machine is gone as well. So we don’t know what to do with outselves. At least my laptop is here and working now. Loopy is thinking about getting the parts to put his computer together later on tonight.
Somehow we managed to get Eric reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Philosopher’s Stone for our Canadians.) I never imagined Eric reading that but he is doing it right now and is over half way through the book. I haven’t had a chance to read the Chamber of Secrets yet so I bought it on CD last night and have been listening to it in the car. Last night I had to drive out to Eric’s and my parent’s houses to pick up some things that were waiting for me out there. So, I had quite a bit of time to kill while I was in the car.
