Wow, has it really been March since I posted last?

Well, yeah, probably, not the best communicator and all that...

In general things have been going well. We've weathered a small financial crisis caused by further pay cuts at $employer - I've cut down on my savings (though still contributing to the 401K) and we've tightened the belt a bit more.

I dreamed one night that a check for $26,000 came in. I don't know why, but I do know it was associated with happy things so it wasn't severance pay or a death of someone dear to us. I am holding on to that dream in hopes it is prophetic...

The painter came back to start work on the house. He got most of the back completely primed and caulked and then went down with a bad illness. It has certainly not been his year. Meanwhile, we look slightly better than falling apart but not much.

I put in a new dry well to receive runoff from a downspout that was backing into the basement. I am hoping it will keep things dry enough to do some woodworking.

The housefilk was very successful - we had 21 people packed into the front rooms. The space is wonderful but there's just not quite enough of an opening to allow good sightlines when we're that full. We'll keep trying new options.

ladyat and I spent last Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Pole Day Qualifications. It was her first time there, and she was surprised by how loud it was. Good thing I told her to take her earplugs...

We'll be working a contract for the DI at Marcon and hope to see some folks there!

You'll see me, for one.

If I do go, it'll be for Saturday only. Just me and the songbooks; no instruments.

BTW, where can I go in Indy for a good microbrew? I'm making occasional visits and would like to visit with you and ladyat sometime.
