Spent the fourth of July up in Canada with the family. There's a lot of us now--four boys, two wives, a grand-daughter, a girlfriend, two parents, three dogs and an island full of memories and plans to be made. We cleared some brush and made some waves and hiked a bit and cooked a lot and I got to sit in the hammock for a while and look at the tops of trees. Just past the trees, the sky was blue and gray, the moon was bright and a few storms blew through as the days went by. The boathouse needs work and squirrels are living in the sun room, but the out-house is a distant memory and we've gone wireless (when it works).
