Into my heart an air that kills From yon far country blows: What are those blue remembered hills, What spires, what farms are those? This is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain. The happy highways where I went And cannot come again. - A.E. Housman (1859-1936)

Chicago - Charlie's Birthday



The cake.

View from our seats. Padres beat the Cubs. We got to see a Padre steal home.

The ballpark.

Giant Pumpkins!

The giant pumpkin experiment is now officially over. We had a fourth one but it burst and we concluded that they weren't growing any more, anyway.

It was lots of fun - and very little effort!
We're satisfied - especially since this was our first experience with growing any kind of pumpkins.
