Campaigning at the polls?

While standing in line outside of the polling place for advanced voting yesterday, we had a bit of entertainment. Starting from miles away, we saw what looked a parasail lazily floating hundreds of feet above the trees. It soon started to come our way, where it eventually started circling the parking lot where we stood in line. I got this picture with my sorry phone camera, so it seems like he was very far away, but he was only a couple hundred feet up at the most at this point:

The parasail was actually a three-wheeled, gas-engine powered ultralight aircraft, with a parasail for a wing. Folks remarked how uncomfortable he must be up there, with the engine buzzing like an insane mosquito, and the temperatures quickly dropping with the sun.

He turned toward the line near us, dropping to just 50 feet or so above the treetops, and as he passed, he shouted: "VOTE McCAIN-PALIN!!!!".

So, go vote. You never know what entertainment you might get.

Saturday, October 25, 2008


Yep. That's us. Homeless. The sale of our house closed on Friday, October 24, 2008 at 10 AM. We turned over our keys, shook hands, and left our home of 9 years in the hands of strangers. Now, the waiting time comes. Waiting for the bank account to grow enough to put down a solid down payment on the new place, waiting and hoping that noone swoops in and buys it before we can make our offer, just...waiting. As we left our house after doing the final cleaning, I took a few pictures to echo the empty feeling that momentarily passed our hearts as we said goodbye to 5684 Tattersall Terrace:

Moving (OUT) Day

Well, it's (mostly) done. We've moved out of our house. All the major furniture and 95% of our stuff is in a storage unit. I'm sitting here writing this on my laptop at my in-law's house, which will be our abode for the next couple of months. Pray for the patience and forbearance of us and our in-laws as we get up close and personal every day. We still have some stuff to get out of the house, but we have until the closing on the 24th to get the rest out. As usual, stay tuned for more news as it happens.

UPDATE: For those interested, our email addresses have changed. My new email address is and Jamie's is Our U.S. mail is being temporarily forwarded to:

P.O Box 2641

That's it for now. More as it occurs.
