Tossback Tuesday – Wedding stuff

I ran across our wedding invitations and the mass booklet.

Camp Cornell in full swing

Cavorting with the Calicorns

We had a great time out in San Diego. Here are some pictures (lots more on Mariel’s facebook mobile uploads). Some video clips too.

Pool’s closed and Mom’s new PC

I posted this over on Google+ but figured some people might not see it there: Cat's Cute / Closed Pool Is Not Mom’s lappy is having power issues again. I think it is the plug since I just replaced the jack but decided to upgrade her anyway. Here is her new all-in-one HP PC.

I do plan to keep my day job but…

Maybe some day Matt will post a paragraph about me like the one Dexter did for him for Father’s day; not the Strong Bad thing or the game winning but the fixing technical stuff thing. BetsTop (Betsy’s HP laptop) had intermittent problems recognizing the power plug. Several months ago I took it all apart and […]
