mom's envio-wagon

the new generator at brownsey camp

Sunday, November 27, 2005

Here is the world famous barbie cake. It has been disassembled.
It was good to see some family this holiday. Looks like the weather is going to get warm for a bit this week. We did ride a Ski Whiz and the Mini Rev around the yard friday in the 1/2" of snow we did get here.
Mom should put up a photo of her new enviro-wagon. Next week she is going to buy the accessory kayak to permanently mount on the roof in case of flood.
Paul "Santa is burning" would make a good name for a band, or a Henry Rollins christmas song.

Hi from brownsey camp north. I ran the snowmobile up and down the dam road 3 times. The reservoir is full to the boards and just starting to freeze. The generator ran for it's 12 min test run as it will every week at the same time. We ordered Direct TV and they are going to install it Dec. 4. Now we need a tv.

Santa's on fire... pictures to follow.
The Thankgiving trio was here, but so were 13 other people. Most notable occurance- we ate 3 entire cans of black olives, and no, it wasn't because there was nothing else to eat. We ended the evening watching Cameron cut into her Barbie cake, an awesome cake. I assume Noah will post a picture when he gets up.

Thanksgiving trio

I found a picture of Dirtdevil on the camera

...and an A-C Yankee too

Happy Thanksgiving!

The snow just started here but its very cold. The wood stove is going for the first time this fall.

Happy Thanksgiving! The turkey is in the oven and the boy is still in bed, so all is calm here. It is snowing steadily and we are going to have a white Thanksgiving in Niskayuna. Enjoy a coast to coast holiday.

I bought this from somebody's yard wednesday for $10. It will never run but it has lots of good parts. It is a 1976 John Deere Cyclone 340.

I should be arriving at Brownsey Camp South late Tuesday night, hopefully there will be food of some sort for me to eat when I arrive.

I am also accepting ideas for a Christmas Light arrangement to be constructed over Thanksgiving. Tying Santa to a tree has been played out, and he has already been tangled in a spider web, so a new idea is needed. Keep in mind that the arrangement is to be artistic, meaning the passerby must question the motivations of the creator. For example: Santa in a sleigh... not artistic, Santa in a spider web... artistic. Also we are limited in the mediums that may be used since this is to be displayed in the front yard of Brownsey Camp South, so firearms, explosives should not be part of the arrangement.

Use Gold Bond medicated powder.

Page 2, I would like to see about ruining Christmas a little earlier than usual this year, rather than waiting a week or two before the holiday as has been done in previous year.

Paul Brownsey,
Good Day!

P.S. Two NDinjas finished fourth in the LMES race at Istanbul last weekend, earning second place in the championship this year with his Zytek team. He will be back in Japan's (new) A1Gp car in Malaysia this weekend. You can watch the complete Eastern Creek race(Australia) at www.A1GP.com , simply click on the picture in the middle of that page that says 'Watch A1GP'.

Dirt Devil?

Wednesday, November 09, 2005

Good job on winning the school board Chris. Too bad about the senior center. Why aren't they allowed in the schools or the library? No wonder they are mad!

We spent last weekend with the Roslunds and went to the the wine dinner together. It was a all the wine you could drink dinner.

While the Perkin's were over for dinner Sunday we lost power for about 2 hours but we were able to cook using the propane. Midnight the power went off again and stayed off until after we left for home. Joe had me call his friend B.J.Queen about a generator that comes on automatically when the power goes off.

I talked to my Father last night- he was a little groggy, but the surgery went well.

Now, we need a report from Chris on his re-election results.

The wine dinner was a great success. Joel suggested posting the menu, but she didn't do a written one this year. After appetizers (swordfish bites on picks, little chicken bites, skanakopitas, deviled eggs, cheese, something else) we had:

Crab and shrimp cake with wasabi sauce
Salman encrusted with pecans and maple sauce and broccoli
Green salad
Breast of duck with berry sauce and green beans
Poached pear and something chocolate

and wine

Bob, the engineer counted 44 guests. Nancy and Diane were there. Everyone had a great time.

Joel is on his way to Florida.

George Klapp is taking down the race car wallpaper.

Its three more years. The votes were counted by 8:30 which was 1/2 hour after the polls closed (much earlier than the 1am count last time).

All birthdays moved because of jet lag.--Philip

When we went to the auto show on friday we picked up a 2006 Saab 97x brochure. This was the photo on page 12.

Oliver and I had a good trip to Maine. The weather saturday was relly nice. The weather sunday was not. It was very foggy all the from Scarborough to the New York border. Oliver had a rally good time and was a great passenger. I updated some things on the calender. I noticed we are now celebrating Chris's birthday on a new date?

The Bravo. Chris

Noah and Oliver visited Saturday night. Noah picked a Trans Ski frame that had been dropped off here. The kids had a great time playing outside yesterday. Today was rainy. Noah helped me get Jonathan's Bravo started.

Happy Birthday Cameron!--Philip

I returned last night from teaching 4th and 6th grade in the Salt Lake City area the past two weeks. 4th grade was more fun than 6th. The heat was off in my cabin and it was 35 inside. Last night we received 6 inches of snow. I expect another 6 this weekend. I posted my travel info for December on the calendar. I will fly in to Albany on 12/24 and leave on 12/30.--Talk Later, Philip

Oliver cameron and I went to the auto show at the empire plaza. It was a little weaker than most years. Most companies didn't give it much effort. There was an '05 Dodge Charger painted like the General Lee. The new '06 Miata and Pontiac Soltice were the highlights. Ford had the worst display, Chevy was a close second the new HHR saved them from being skipped over.

Yellow Day can be exhausting

Thursday, November 03, 2005

Chris and I got our flu shots today- it's time for everyone else to do the same.

Sandey and I are taking my Mother to Milano's for dinner tonight, as it is her birthday.

Pictures of Sleeping Beauty and the DirtDevil we be coming soon. Looks like Oliver and I are taking a trip to Maine saturday to sunday. Maybe the boston connection will stop in for a visit. I think we need to do some last minute campaigning in the Scarborough area. We need to go door to door, or at least steal the other people's signs.
Tomorrow is yellow day for those of you trying to keep up.
Where's Dirtdevil?
