A new car! A 2005 Chevrolet Aveo. Great gas mileage and a some creature comforts to make the long drives into town a little more comfortable.

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.
Placement of the footings and basement walls began virtually as the last truckload of the old house was still leaving the driveway!
Pictures are now available!

Sadly, today was the day we had to say goodbye to an old friend...
Sebastian, our hiking partner and constant companion for 14 years could simply walk the trail no longer. Age had gotten the better of this peaceful companion and he was humanely allowed to rest. He will be missed and fondly remembered. Thank you to all who expressed their condolences and kind wishes during this difficult time.

Lanea has a new rotation. No more working nights! She is now in a day/evening rotation which means that none of her shifts go later than 11:30pm - no more working until 7:30am. This should go a long way to maintaining what remains of our mutual sanity.

Today was the Charlottetown Christmas Parade! We all (Lanea, Lutz and Henry) went into town and enjoyed a very "down-home" affair that afforded some insight into local colour. Click here to see the pictures.

The storm was a good one! We were fortunate to escape with no structural damage to the house. We did however, lose 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 "German engineered" Lutz lends a hand...

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 work cut out for us! Check out our picture page for some pics of the property and some of the work we've done.
