This week will be the first time in well over a decade that I have worn any of my Civil War gear. So this week I tried a bunch of my stuff on and what do you know, it still fits, although the vest is going to need some adjustments. Still, I am excited about doing it, and to be getting involved with history again. And to get me in the spirit of things I decided to take a little trip to Milton, home of the G.H. Bent Company.
Once the water got too close, I think Rerun would have given up. Still, this is cute and this guy does look like Rerun when he was a pup.
Obviously, if you know us or have read the title of this blog, we have a lot of books. I mean, a LOT of books. I thought I had a lot before I met Geoff, and then I saw his bookshelves and all bets were off. When we combined households there were books everywhere.
OK, I have held off on commenting about the weather for several days, but now that our little heat wave is over, I feel like I need to comment.
Essentially, this is abnormal, especially for Boston in June.
I have not talked about my jobs in a while, and I wanted to let people know how they were going.
They are going quite well.
A couple of our friends are getting married soon and so we’re back in the throes of wedding planning. Or, rather, I am as I’m assisting with stuff and things for one of the weddings. It’s nice to be working on it for someone else this time around, my experience is helpful, I can back off when necessary, and it isn’t my parents who are getting upset. 🙂
That’s why these two articles on Boston.com caught my eye.
Back at the end of May I wrote about how Replacements.com had the guts to fight against the Constitutional Amendment that was enshrining Hate into their state laws in North Carolina. I encouraged readers to contact them and show their support. I emailed them to tell them how much I appreciated what they were doing. As further proof of the kind of shop they run down there, they wrote back.
