HollyCornblog sent a new batch of photos of the finished (re)construction work at the lake … and it’s looking amazingly good. They did a stellar job. If anyone is looking for someone to do this kind of work in the Cobleskill/Middleburgh/Renselaerville NY area, I’d highly recommend Terry Bartholemew. (HollyCornblog can help you reach him, if need be.)
Here’s just one photo of the new floor, with one coat of poly down … and another to go next weekend. Looking good, you guys!
In other news … a spider crawled all over the pope while he gave a speech in Prague … not for arachnophobes (you KNOW who I am talking about)! Supposedly it went on the Pope’s face, although the video doesn’t actually show that.
Sad to see that the Red Sox, Phillies AND Penn State all lost. And there will be plenty of controversy today, as Michael Vick likely will get his first playing time as the McNabless-Eagles face off against the Chiefs. On the FFootball front, I think that the 2 Blitzin’ Babes are in good shape (but then I thought that last week, too.)
What else? The Bates men and women both lost to Trinity yesterday … the men in OT and the women in a closer-than-it-sounds 2-0 match. Beautiful day for soccer, though – and it was nice to see everyone. On the ride up and back we explored numerous topics of great import … the proper way to boil an egg (a reprise from a previous trip to a Bates soccer game), the best way to toast toast … and the word for when you kidnap someone and make him/her work on your boat. (Aren’t you impressed?) ;>)
Good luck to you this week, Pliny!
