With the quilt off the list, maybe next week I can get to some other things that are on my list for this winter before the season melts into spring.

A young Canadian has posted an album of assorted Mennonite groups singing acapella on YouTube. This is one of the selections. Very nicely done. If you want to hear more, go to

Obama is not a magic word that will set everything right overnight but his rise to the Presidency is a sign of progress in at least some areas. I don't agree with all his ideas on abortion and gay rights but think he is on the right track in getting out of Iraq and closing Guantanamo.
And the last observation was more earthy. I was glad I was NOT in Washington. I know what being out in the cold does to me and they estimated there was one porta-john per 400 people. I would have spent hours standing in line at one of them and missed the swearing in because my turn had finally come. I could see better and was more comfortable here in my own office.

Some of the other models on display were anything from New Holland hit and miss engines to boats and trains and even a tiny cannon fired by a ray of light beamed through a magnifying glass to set it off. Dale thought it would make a unique alarm clock. You could set it on your windowsill, positioned just right for the sun to hit the glass and the cannon aimed just right to give you a wake-up call and get your day off to a running start. Any volunteers to try it?

The three boys' cars are now back in with room to spare. Dale's Chevelle (which Leroy bought new in 1966) is on the far right. Daryl's Chevelle is freshly washed and covered in the background, and Gene's Monte Carlo (which was Steve's) is under cover in the foreground. And there is room for Leroy to store a few of his things in between---which was his object to begin with. He can hardly believe all this happened in less than two weeks. (Now if only he would clear all the junk from his own side of the garage!)
