So Much Stuff

One of the major tasks we need to complete before we begin our journey is jettisoning most of the stuff that has been weighing us down. We have packed up some of our must-keep stuff to bring to Colorado to leave with Ellen's parents. We have already taken several truckloads of stuff to Goodwill. We are giving away some stuff to friends. And we are selling even more stuff on Craigslist. The amount of stuff we have collected over three-plus decades of life is quite astounding. In honor of all that stuff, here is a bit from George Carlin that never fails to amuse me. (Earmuffs, impressionable children.)

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!
