Congrats to Ellen and to Chris on their romantic engagement on Sunday – see the blog post by Ellen below to hear how Chris did an outstanding job!!

Chris called me Saturday to ask for my blessing the beforehand and I was so happy to give it!  I was on the 4th hole at Bay Path when the call came in.  At first, I was worried that there had been an emergency, but soon I could tell it was an important call.  Chris was trying to keep his voice down and Ellen from hearing – but I got to hear all the important parts.  WOW!

I was so happy to hear and Lynn and I are so happy for both of them.  They are both so special to us and loved by us!

They came over Sunday on their return to show off the ring and we celebrated – including Caesar!

The BIG Question — fateschoiceblog

This weekend, Chris and I went out to Provincetown for a convention called Nauticon. It’s a 21+ convention full of all things nerd and geek and awesome (and alcoholic). We went to the first one back in 2012 and were excited to have the chance to go again. It’s held at the historic Provincetown Inn, […]

The Phrinx are Coming! — H.A.W.K.S.

Buck My friend Ma’k Morin recently discovered the Star Rovers line of figures from Archive. See his article here. Ma’k molded some of them for me, since they are no longer in production. The guy who has all the Archive molds, doesn’t have these, so they may be lost. Last weekend, Ma’k gave me two […]

This is how to celebrate a Birthday!

This post is a little late!  Lynn and I celebrated her birthday on June 12th by heading up to Hampton Beach, NH.  This was our first trip back up there in several years, but it was a lot of fun.

We hung out at the beach for several hours, taking advantage of Lynn’s new beach umbrella.  This kept us from roasting.  I did hit the water briefly, but it was about 50 degrees Fahrenheit so when I could not feel anything in my legs I went back.  We walked around the area – and it was pretty amazing that so much has been improved in terms of parking, signage, bath houses, etc.  The old casino was the same with its many arcades, shops, etc.  But again, it seemed less worn down than the last time we were there.

On the way home, had to hit Brown’s in Seabrook, NH.  Had a couple of 2.5 lb. lobsters and a quart of steamers each.

Now that's a lobster!
Now that’s a lobster!

On the way in we were surprised to run into Jim Herndon’s mother and his sister who were up from Leominster, MA.  Small world!

Need to get back up there again soon – or so Lynn tells me!
