Sunny days, Leaky days

Looked nice out today, had a rental roof leak to look at, M had the nice car, so I decided to take Cecelia.
Cool, crisp air, relatively clear skies even a bit of warmth on my back at stoplights.
The leak is still a mystery, however, I may have to cut a hole in the ceiling to find it.
Actually it's not new, five years ago I thought we cured it but I don't remember how, or where it was.
So I'll just go looking.
Somehow it didn't leak during our big snow but waited for a little one to start it's dripping.

Nothing more to report today.


I see bicyclists on the road.


The orchestral piece formerly known as Cello Concerto is done, or at least I'm tired of listening to it, means the same thing.


I think I'll try a two-violin concerto next.

Yeah, yeah, I love it when you do your land baron, country squire duties. Do several mean dwarves and three trolls accompany you to keep the serfs under control? Hasn't this Bush disaster economy effected your rental income? I forget, do you have three rental houses, or 33?

I guess Cecelia is the old Volvo sta-wag? Amazing after 300,000 miles that she will fire up for you at all. Thought about you this morning, thinking of your busy driveway (less so these days). Some guy in Ballard who drinks too much had a four car pile up in his own driveway, all his cars. The city made him haul them all off. Now he can start over. Remember in the late 50's when we could buy a car for a 100 bucks or less. Now it costs that to go out to dinner.

Will you and Miss M be attending the concert done by Ana Cervantes, featuring an Alex Shapiro number entitled "Luvina"? Be a shame to miss supporting a fellow composer, enit? Don't know if she will be attending, or where the concert will be held.
