I came out here to the east coast the see my Dad in Massachusetts. He Lives with My oldest brother Jon and his family in Massachusetts. had a great time ... built a play set, went kayaking, played with kids, held my grand niece. (Grand niece?) but did not have a camera...

But I flew into New York, where Lisa and Cameron and there two kids live. Yesterday we went shopping in midtown.
Mara and I got separated from Lisa an Ava. Mara saw this paper dress, and was so beside herself...we had to find Ava and Lisa. They danced then posed

New York

yesterday I played whiffle ball with Adam and Eve, and Mitt Romney's son. The day before I went surfing and saw Hamlet in Central park. Today I ran into Becca Mae's sister Debbie, she gave me a hug then a slice of Pizza.

and then there are these two

Yes they both dressed themselves, too bad you can't see Eva's back pack, it's just her teddy bear tucked in her jacket oh yea her jacket has wings.

So Mara's friend Aaron was scribbling with a crayon and Mara turned to Lisa and said with a disapproving grin "that looks like Jackson Pollock"

Pirate’s nest… argh

Raquel and Oliver, two of my favorite people in the world, have an urban farm/permaculture wonderland for a house, built in the 1890's here in bucolic Provo, Utah

Pale green paint paint, chickens and ducks, and a garden to die for, no make that live for. Of late they have been following the 100 yard diet, you've heard of the 100 mile diet? Their garden loves them so much that it produces giant tasty mushrooms all by itself.

They have many trees, two giants and one of them one is Hagrid and the other…the foundation for my new home.

Construction started last fall, the first two platforms are in place, two more to go, the staircases and ladders are almost done.

More to follow…
