the end of an era

John arrived back in Florida this afternoon, so that we are completely at home now.  We'll see where we go from here.  Life feels both uncertain and settled at the same time.

Moving on - Time Out!

We've moved to a new place.

Go here:

Not sure where we're going with this, but there is where we're gonna put stuff for now!

So long Another America Adventure!  It's been a good adventure!   May need a few more posts to properly put this baby to rest.  We still have the apartment in Cranberry and some loose ends to tie up, but the 3+ year odyssey that began rolling back in April 2010 is definitely on its last leg.   John may even get back up there for more contract work later.  But that'll all be recorded in a different context ...

the end is coming!

Believe it or not, Another American Adventure is coming to an end.  More than 3 years and over 500 postings, our adventure is Western PA will soon be over.

I think I'll call the next interlude: In Between Times.  Stay tuned.

I think this is the last year that I will celebrate my birthday.  Anyway, here are some photos of the day, starting with a breakfast birthday party.

Homemade granola ...

the My Tie Sauce

Meanwhile, I've been somewhat busy in Florida with web and graphics work.  One of my jobs this week was making a new label for hot sauce - Curt Fonger's "My Tie" sauce.  For those who don't know, Curt was the local TV news anchor here for a number of years.  Mike, our pool guy, is a real fan of Curt's and was delighted to get a bottle of the hot sauce.  It's quite good!

The days are noticeably becoming shorter, even if it doesn't seem to be getting any cooler.  I rescued the succulent plants that were burned from the constant summer's sun.  Having no green thumb whatsoever, I think that perhaps these plants are going to come around.

fish dinner

John and Rey's fish dinner at Berkley Manor.  The big deal is knowing how to cook a whole fish on a grille.  Looks like a success and a good bottle of wine for Rey!  Asparagus and egg rolls?
