It's been a summer of fix-it-up and repair.

Stan is fixing the dry rot on the windows then we'll be having the house painted. We finished the deck and stained it. Stan added a motion detector to the lights on the garage.

We also took a trip to Cape Cod, staying in Chatham where we were able to see the Hyannis Sound perform (see video clip at Stan and I took a senic luncheon trip on the Cape Cod Central Railroad. It was a bit rocky and rickety but offered an excellent views of rear lots of businesses and residential back yards.

Grant has recovered from his wisdom tooth extractions. Apparently he required a LOT of anesthesia for the surgery. They'd administer the drug and he'd just keep talking, so they kept pumping in more. No wonder it took him SO long to come out of it. We'd been home for about 3 hours when he awoke from napping and asked if his teeth had been removed. Today, one week later, his jaw is back to normal and he's back to work at the AMC Framingham 16 movie theatre.

Grant is enrolling in the UMass Marching Band for this fall. He's going to have a full schedule as he also plans to sing in a choral group or two. But the Marching Band responsibilities extend only through the fall semester for the most part.

Stan is taking a few days off for vacation. We plan to go to the Cape to hear Cooper perform on Tuesday night. We also have reservations on the Cape Cod Central Railroad for their luncheon excursion.

According to Paul's blog, Cooper is doing some arranging already. Good job, Coop! He was to have taught the group a new piece this week so maybe we'll get to hear it at the Chatham concert Tuesday night. He's very busy during the day as well in his camp counselor job at Cape Cod Sea Camps.
