Q-day approaches, so the long list of must have items is hitting the credit card while there is at least a modicum of cash flow to partially offset the damage. A haul out at Point Roberts, WA has been booked for June 12, and the deluge of new gear is arriving in Blaine.

Susan & I abandoned the boys into the very capable hands of our nanny, Steph, while we made a one week visit to see my Dad in New Zealand.
