There and Back again, Pages 76 to 80

Hello all.  Just as we were getting ready to go strawberry picking, the weather has turned on us yet again.  I was willing to brave the rain but it seems the farms aren't interested in having pickers in the wet.  Sigh.  Hopefully later in the week?  They are promising some more sun and I really want to fill up my freezer.

It was a good first week down at Project Space.  If you live in the area be sure to stop in sometime because there are many interesting things going on down there.  Some are still setting up, but as the official "opening" is this coming Friday I expect it will be all set by then.  I'll try to remember my camera this week so I can share with you some photos of the space.

In the meantime...
