I just learned that Mercury was in retrograde a few weeks back.. ..(i beleive it ended july 1)   i don’t beleive that the constellations rule our fate.. i do believe that every bit of matter in the universe effects every  other.. so why cant the fact that a small overheated planet starts doing a polar coordinated  dance out of  precalculus  rule our lives.. What else can explain all the agitation, complexity and sad events that have occurred in the past couple of weeks.

 

i plan on having a conversation with said planet. It’s supposedly visible in the eastern sky at 4:45 tomorrow monring. we’ll see what it has to say for itself.

 

in the mean time.. here’s a photo I cut from the drone video that Matthew took of the house yesterday. you can see the samstone we placed up there.. when the cupula was being repaired..   pretty cool !

 

ok.. time for bed.. mercury rises very early tomorrow

Today was really nice.. .. a mix of doing nothing.. and being busy.. Max was around in the afternoon which was great. he heads back to B’klyn tomorrow.

 

gabe was out camping on burton island

Diane , the dogs and I started the day with a run around Preston pond.. We love running in the woods..but the bugs were fierce,,

Midday we headed to Little River reservoir for the annual VOMIT (Vermont’s Own MIT) club picnic. It was a lovely, geeky (like me) crowd….

Once again, our leader Michelle had gotten all of the MIT regalia to make us official.. baloons, cups, napkins.. even angry beaver temporary tattoo’s

 

 

we reinacted our famous human mit sign.. though this time we did it lying down.. not bad !

 

really nice seeing everyone..

 

later at home, Matthew and his mom came by again with their GoPro toting drone to get soem flyovers of the house. . it was   very , very cool…

Matthew kindly gave us the video he shot. We need to edit it down.. but we’ll post a snippet here tomorrow.

I cant wait to see Matthew’s whole piece on Cochran road. He’s a great kid !

 

 

yikes .. its’ 1:30 am..how’d that happen ?!

gotta sleep now

 

more tomorrow with those amazing drone vids !

Robert Frost once famously said… “good fences make good neighbors’…  the reverse is also true, i hope. Today i got to help George repair his horse fences.. George is always the first one here to help us when we need an extra hand..cutting up trees, etc. s it was nice to be able to return some of the favor.

 

Diane was helping over there in the garden…she even walked her Jasmine plant over to  It’s all in prep for Jillian’s wedding next week !  Getting exciting..

 

more on that as the week progresses.

for notw…
