Yes, I am very much still alive and kicking! Just took a few days off. It's been really hectic around here since my return from Michigan. Dealing with workmen (at least those that show up!), getting a starter put in the Tracker, finishing arrangements to leave the house so that I could attend a wedding in the Yucatan and entertaining our house guest from NOB have topped my list.
I plan on being back in form tomorrow, complete with pictures! Stay tuned!
