Working on the Vespa

A couple weeks ago I decided to switch the rear tire and change the oil on the bike.

It went pretty well except I relearned that having the right tools makes every job more enjoyable. It would be nice to own a tool store......

A New Niece

This is a little late but I now have a new niece named Julia!
And here is her sister Elyssa looking all rock-star.
She has to walk around at night with sunglasses on and an umbrella even if it's barely raining (I wonder if she got the umbrella thing from Irene).

Earlier in the spring we had started to notice that a piece of soffit on our shed was starting to come off. I couldn't really think of why but it seemed to be slowly coming off more and more. There also seemed to be something coming out.

So when I finally got to check it out I realized that it was a pinecone jammed in the soffit. But as I started to pull it out I realized that there was several pinecones. They were totally jammed in there and I had to peel off the wood to get them out.

So I started to pull them out and I ended up with this crazy pile. My guess is that some squirrel stuffed the soffit with them in the fall and they all expanded in the warm spring weather.

The Wheel of Death

I have never really had any real desire to see Cirque de Soliel but after seeing this video my mind has officially been blown. This is some serious acrobatics.

Yeah I think I'd want to go see that live too.

If that vid doesn't work you can go here.
