A book of Maori fairy tales

I just came across this book of Maori fairy tales, which looks rather interesting. Here's what the front page looks like.

Just a random kitty shot. George is thinking: I wanna look out the door too girls! (The girls are the main door-watchers...especially Mieze

When I walked to my workshop last Tuesday this is what greeted me as I walked along Spring St. The students who lived in the big houses, had left a ton of rubbish for someone else to clean be honest I was disappointed that they could have done a slightly better job at cleaning up their mess...

A Sunday picture

Hansi - our old cat (17) likes to stay as close to me as possible. So I let him stay on the chair and pulled up the other one so we could sit next to each other as I read the Times. And yes I do use a ruler to read the Times--doesn't everyone???

A dirndl!

One of my German students who dances in a folk dance group in her hometown wore her dirndl to class one day and told us about it and showed us some videos of her folk-dance group. It was fun!

I've only had a chance to take him out once but he really enjoyed it.

A picture - almost a day - from now on plus occasional other stuff

I've decide to give up the whole "picture a day premise" which has just completely lost is's allure and appeal..instead I give to you "a picture almost everyday with some gaps in between" plus occasional other postings, especially I hope concerning my own "adventures in genealogy" one of the new hobbies I discovered during the year I took off from full-time college level teaching. Of course I have not been able to do much with it during the first year back on the clock here at Miami but I hope to get back to it more over the summer. Who new my family was so diverse, and interesting and big! So stay tuned trusty followers and see what's in store....
