Gateway to more interesting places

This is not an "ego page;" I'm just a simple man with high hopes, ambitious dreams, and an intense desire to get through the day unscathed. But I have become involved with several activities, including four lovely, talented daughters and their equally lovely and talented mother, plus several community organizations. This is the directory to their pages.

The Tale of the Karmic Oar

"Ground Control to Major Tom" -- Here we are at the OPenluchtmuseum (Open Air Museum) with Tom and Liz.

There was General A. P. Hill for the Confederacy and then there was General D. R. Hill who performed admirably for the Union at Gettysburg, ably assisted by his lovely wife, Nancy Lee who, despite her relation to Robert E. Lee, maintained her loyalty to the Union and to her husband.

When we returned to Gettysburg it was raining heavily. While a crass tourist tried to get an autograph from President Lincoln, Nancy was good enough to protect the good President from the downpour. Her middle name may be Lee, but her heart is in the right place.

Nancy's diet has worked wonders for her but there have been some unexpected side effects that became evident when we visited the M. C. Escher Gallery in The Hague, Netherlands (March, 2005)

And then we had this little mishap (June, 2005)

I got a new Christmas toy that I just had to try out. So I went down to the wharf as soon as I could get out of my driveway after our New Year's Eve snowstorm, and caught this view of the Islander heading back to Chebeague while the snow continued. It even has sound! You'll need Windows Media Player (press Alt-Enter for full screen) or Irfan Viewer (a real nice and free viewer of just about anything) to watch it. As for you Mac people -- you can try downloading Microsoft's Mac version of the Media Player.

A couple of weeks later, I had more success with the Polar Bear Plunge. The sound alone captures the excitement, kind of like the sinking of the Titanic!
