Can we come out yet?

There were a couple of days that were warm. There was even one Sunday that we spent the afternoon on the benches in front of the shop. Met some great people from the Eaton area who were scouting a location for their antique auto club excursion this summer.

This winter I finished Chernow's biography of Alexander Hamilton, much more interesting than the one from last year. More of a sense of the person was conveyed, rather than just the financial strategies. I read this week that Chernow is planning a bio of George Washington next.

I read Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins this week. A fantasy work for the young readers set. A fairly quick read, and appears to be a start of a possible series. Young man falls into another world, seems to fulfill prophecies, completes quest and returns to our world--The Overland. But a hint that he may be returning.
