I haven’t been posting lately, and I suspect one of the reasons is above.  I am remembering that it takes a ton of work to have a puppy in the house.

The good news is that I am spending a ton of time in the woods with her.  Any help on what this lot is?

Cris and I flew out of Boston early yesterday on our way to Denver.  Hard to believe the above shot was taken in the airport.  Looks like something out of someone’s private home in South Boston. / On our way up to the mountains we stopped in Arvada to see the house where my aunt Leora and uncle Herald lived, a place I have been visiting since a young child.

We are in Colorado for the wedding of one of Cristine’s grad students.  Laura was a favorite of ours, and the nuptials are in Beaver Creek.  It is beautiful here.  The aspens are so lovely at this time of the year.

I’m working on the “Normal” post, but in the interim wanted to mention that as we were just off the end of the runway at Logan last night, the pilot juiced the engines and pulled up into a steep climb.  We cruised around for about 20 minutes and as we headed back toward the airport we were then informed that the landing gear hadn’t come down on our approach and that the pilot had to lower it manually (hand crank?).  When we finally landed there were lots of flashing lights and fire trucks everywhere.  For some reason we had to be towed to the gate.  It was never too scary but an interesting way to return to Massachusetts.
