Real Life Intrudes

Well I have a lot to write about: a visit to the gardens at Long Hill and Glen Magna Farms, the carver of Salem Samuel McIntire, canning the late summer harvest, building a chuck box for a group of Daisy Scouts, and the recent procurement and restoration of a vintage 1942 Parker 51 fountain pen.  I can’t wait to write about all of these things!  However, I am also up for tenure this fall and am trying to maintain a laser like focus on completing my tenure dossier, due the end of September.  I promise to get beck to growing, building, and restoring after that!
