Mr. Toad is dead. Long live Mr. Toad!


Yesterday we replaced Mr. Toad (shown here on the day, five years ago, that we picked him up) with a new Mr. Toad, above.  Officially it's a MINI Cooper S Countryman All4, but there's really not much mini about it.  CL says it's a Buick, but it does have four doors and room for four adults or two adults and three smaller people.  Also below is Mr.Toad's predecessor, the Bumblebee, ten years ago, after we'd had him for a month.

Happy 70th Birthday



Jim's brother John was kind enough to go through his archives and select a group of pictures from the past in honor of Jim's 70th birthday.  I (CL) have taken over the blog for the moment and am posting them because they are too good to miss.  Jim's dad was also a photographer and took lots of pictures of Jim and John so we have a record of their younger years.  As I look at the ones of us as a couple, I'm wondering where the years have gone.
