Today was the day! After 183 years
the old farmhouse has seen it's end.
We have decided to build a new home in it's place.

one tree between ourselves and the neighbour in front of us. We were able to
get that cleaned
up with the chainsaw and leave nothing but the stump
to remind us...
Check out the newest
addition to our family, a 1994 Mazda 323.
A good little gas miser for those long trips into Charlottetown. The perfect cliché
- owned by a little old lady, low kilometres, and in great condition.
While Dad was here
visiting we managed to get out to see the Confederation
Bridge. To prove that they were actually there, Lutz and Dad are posed
beside one of the shuttle vans
that carry foot passengers across the bridge (only vehicular traffic is
permitted on the bridge). Because he doesn't trust anything that isn't

As many of
you are already aware, we've moved to the east coast and now reside in beautiful
Prince Edward Island where we have
purchased our first house together. A true "fixer-upper" we have our
