Jon Crispin's Notebook

Monday morning 6.15

Posted in Family, Travel, Weather by joncrispin on 31/10/2011

A very interesting weekend here.  Lost power here at 10 Saturday night.  Cell phone towers were down too, so no email or internet.  Drove Peter back to Union on Sunday afternoon, and finally got a signal at one of the Berkshire rest areas on the Pike.  Amazingly, skyped Cris in Gaza from my phone and she assured me she was ok, in spite of the recent hostilities.  Then saw all the email from Kickstarter backers and am just totally blown away.  So many people to respond to and thank and it will take a while.  Got back to a very dark house last night, stoked up the wood stove and lit some candles.  Power came back on just after 6.00 this morning. / Thanks to everyone for the support and encouragement; I’ll be posting an update on Kickstarter in a bit.

    Dear Jon,

    I am absolutely fascinated with your project. The mysteries you are unwrapping and documenting are precious reminders of our shared humanity. Thank you for sharing it with us and I wish you every success.

    Jon Maude k.’s tools look like leather working tools, for embossing patterns and such.
