The Longest Day

Not just because we're (wait for it) still moving. No, no -- it's the solstice today, the longest stretch of daylight for the year. In Finland, that's Juhannus päivä: bonfires, singing, dancing and great food. It was a good excuse last night to gather around the fire pit at Claudia's, make some music, eat some food and play with Cookie, the chocolate lab pup. Oh, and we got to see what a tiki torch looks like when it catches on fire! You could hear the cows mooing and the goats were on the road -- country life in the Catskills.

Today is packing and carrying; tomorrow the same. With luck, we'll be able to see significant progress. It just seems like there's always a little more...
