Ellis Island – Mar 17, 2012


Here are Shannon and Andy at Ellis Island in March 2012. We went and saw the Statue of Liberty that day also. I think the visit to Ellis Island was by far the more interesting of the two. Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken on Ellis Island, and part of my famous Shannon and Architecture series.

As usual, I’ve waited until way too late to start writing today’s post. So I guess it’ll be Extreme Short Shrift again.

Had a good weekend. Ken and I worked on the pickup on Saturday morning. And this time, we actually worked on it! We took brackets off the engine, cleaned them up, and painted them. Next time we get together, I suspect we’ll put them back on the engine. Progress!

Sunday, we went to Ken and Melanie’s daughter’s husband’s parents’ house for Easter dinner. We had a very nice time. I had met them once before and they were very welcoming. There were probably about 20-25 people there and we had a great time. I even played a little bocce ball.

We had been asked to bring a dessert and I was puzzling about what to do. As it turns out, I went to a sushi group dinner on Friday night and the guy sitting next to me was a pastry chef. He suggested a buy some of those fancy cupcakes. On Saturday, Ken and I ran over to the fancy cupcake store and I bought a dozen. They were popular and delicious. They were probably popular because they were delicious, come to think of it. So I guess I did well that time.

Got some really good work done today on the new website. I finally found an e-commerce plugin for WordPress that will actually work. Now I have to get the backend link to PayPal working. I think that’ll happen tomorrow.

And that’s about it for today. I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: sandwich-caused flight delay!

See you tomorrow.

    So you didn’t take a ham – I was wondering all weekend how it had turned out. We had a Costco spiral ham at Julie’s house and it was delicious. The cupcakes sound great though – I’ve never had one of those fancy cupcakes and have always wondered if they taste as good as they look.

    Melissa and I are supposed to go see Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty as part of her goal list.

    I didn’t take a ham because they asked me to bring a dessert. I was really looking forward to going ham shopping! Alas.
