Brookline, NH

     We got here on Friday and have been doing very little.  We did go to Mark and Heather's for a nice supper of grilled chicken on Sunday.  Today we drove down to Royalston, MA to visit my sister, Marian.  She raises and trains miniature horses.  Below is a picture of her and a couple of her friends.

They are still living in their log cabin dream home with a dream view.  It is a "pay as you go", sweat equity effort.  It is still a long way from being finished, but since Eldy has a two hour commute to work, it will be a matter of years before it is finished.  The place is impressive.  I'll include a couple of pictures that show the scale of the logs as compared to an eight foot door.

     I guess I should include a few examples of the view from the deck.

     On the way back north to Brookline, NH, we saw a couple of things that may be of interest to a few our regular readers.  We saw a pair of Baltimore orioles in Ashburnham, MA.  In Gardner we saw the Dunn State Park.
     The temperature is 69 degrees, and Durelle says, "It's friggin freezing."  There is not a cloud in the sky.  We had a good supper with a pork roast, and all's right with the world.

We were in Rutland MA last Sat. and it was 96. We were glad to get back to the Cape where it was only 78. Much better. Don't know anything about the Dunn State Park. Not our family.
