Let's catch up

With the end of summer looming, let's see what's been going on...
My cousin from Britain came to visit and brought her bunch across the Atlantic.  That's here and her gang with my wife and kids.  

If the view behind everyone looks pretty fine, it should.  The photo was taken in the bulgy part of this building behind them:

We decided that this was about the most Canadian/ Toronto picture we could get.  There were a beaver, a moose and a bear standing next to them but they moved before I could get the camera out.

We went on a bit of a nature hike and came across these fungis.

And we discovered a field full of these fun guys, too.

The office in the garage is a heartbeat from being done:

Here's how it looks to someone stalking me from the backyard:

All in all, it's a wonderful space.  The office gnomes seem right at home:

Yesterday, the boy and I went golfing.  The highlight of the day was his amazing 30-40 foot putt.

He put it in the hole from there!  And we met this little guy:

That little snapping turtle is just a little bigger than a two dollar coin.

Posts on this blog have been few and far between this summer.  As the kids head back to school I'll be checking in a little more frequently but most of my writing needs to be fiction.

I need to make this grand new office pay for itself.
