Progress report...

Progress report...  Our builder (Jim J.) was here all day yesterday, and was joined for part of the day by his son Talon and wife Cathy.  He's finishing up the sheathing on the inside of the barn – in shirtsleeves, now that we have heat – and the other two are starting the cleanup.  It's a royal mess inside right now, with debris from the sheathing, plumbing, and electrical work.  They made a big dent in the remaining work on all counts.

Debbie and I somehow managed to get very little done all day long.  I frittered away a couple hours trying to get our Mac Mini server up, only to discover that the problem was the monitor.  I don't think I've ever had a flat-screen monitor go bad before!  This seems to have happened in the move, which would make this the very first casualty of the move to this point.  I ordered a replacement for a whole $110 from Amazon.  It's astonishing to me just how inexpensive certain computer components have gotten, monitors amongst them...

We had a very nice visit with Tim and Jeannie D., our neighbors to the north.  Just an hour or so of pleasant conversation and companionship, but it put smiles on our faces for the whole day.  On the way out of their house I slipped and fell right on my butt; they had some ice on their front stoop.  No harm done to me, but I rolled into their gutter downspout and squashed it nearly flat.  Dang.
