I got the neatest compliment today in the form of a public Dear John letter. It's been many years since I got a Dear John letter although I've sometimes probably deserved one.

We have a shirttail relative that is working with her Loving Spouse on a massive house restoration project and maintaining her sense of humor while successfully adapting from Southern California city slicker dweller to Eastern Washington farmer. When we met her at the wedding last summer, I said I'd love to help with the project - it brings back memories of my childhood.

While I was musing about the Alaska trip scheduling and routing, she was writing a new blog post for her really interesting blog.

Seems like they're saving a special project for me - double hung window restoration. Should be fun if we can get them unstuck. We'll stop by for a week or so at Glory Farm on our way north.
