It has been very sad around here - our dog Brinkley passed away last weekend. She had been keeping me company in the barn for the entire build. She was not doing well three weeks ago; after a vet visit and some meds, she had perked up quite well and had a terrific two weeks. She was just coming up to her 13th birthday and she had a terrific life on the farm. She passed away peacefully in our company at home last Sunday. We miss you Brinkley.
Work has continued slowly on Redford.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
