    I added a new job skill to my CV this weekend. Son-in-law and I installed a couple of windows ab initio in the (unfinished) upstairs loft of their barn. We started with the back wall in case anything went wrong and/or the final product was really embarrassing. In fact, the install went very smoothly and the final result isn't bad. I, with chagrin, will take ownership of the amateurish appearance of the trim -- since I took the measurements (and installed the boards)! Might have to redo the trim some day -- or maybe not, since it is in the back :p We'll do better in the front, I promise! ;)

    Yes, redo the trim and make two eyes looking over your property.

    Son-in-law's (& daughter's) property :p

    I will re-do the trim; it sets off my OCD just lookin' at the photo.

    We have to do a neater job on the front (road side) of the barn -- those were our practice windows.

    I can tell you that they're better installed than any thing else in that barn was; heck, even the trim isn't any worse than any of the rest on that barn. We've replaced the most egregiously poorly installed (and rotted) trim boards when we repainted it (umm...barn red) last summer. :)

    OK, not gonna give @KennethSwauger any artistic composition ;) but it's one of those Chamber of Commerce weather kind of days in northern New England today, so on my perambulation with Mrs. H this morning (2-mile round trip down to the main road and our newspaper box :p ) I dragged along my camera & snapped a few piccies.

    I'll share a couple few, FWIW :)

    That's our across-the-street neighbor's. It is a beautiful wall. Not a vintage one, but a gorgeous one. Nice folks, too.

    "Boyle's Law"??? Isn't that an action movie with Gene Hackman? Or is it Charles Bronson. :o

    Beautiful property Doc. What is your new camera body?

    Thank you -- but do note that's our neighborhood (none of those photos is our property :p ). We abut the farm & its land shown in the last two photos, and the first photo is across the street from our property.

    Nothin' fancy; the body's is a D5600. Professor Hardy decided that dad needed/deserved a more modern DX-format body :) It certainly does have better low-light performance than the ol' D5000 did.

    I’m still using a Nikon D300 body. I got tired of trying to stay current. I do have several lens for it though.

    Alrighty. My brother just dropped off the new to me Caddy. Now we have to wait. Our DMV’s are still closed here in NY. We will have to mail in all the paperwork,and there’s no telling how long that will take. But,at least I can go out to the driveway and sit in it! Just to quell any questions about Caddy making a stick,here’s a couple of crappy cell phone picks.

    I parked nose to nose (I got out and checked) with a smart car and it only comes up to the middle of my doors. 😂 Keep in mind this is a small early 90s Civic hatchback that would likewise only come up to the middle of your truck door (edit: that might be a bit of an exaggeration, I got a pair of 2Bs behind the front seats just fine) and not a comparatively large modern Civic.

    The biggest "problem" with the Smarts is that they're not particularly economical. They are particularly small, so I guess if one lives in the city and has a car and parks on the street, that might be an advantage (but, in the US at least, that's a pretty small market).

    I remember back in my commuting days seeing them on I-495 tooling along at 70 mph or more. I was terrified on behalf of their drivers -- I wonder how they felt in 'em at speed?
