Old barracks

Here’s the chow hall in the Old Hessian Barracks in Trenton, New Jersey.  Turns out the Hessians were only there for a very short time, preceded by the British and the Americans and then followed by the Americans again.  We still have it.  Seems like a very reasonable way to use military facilities – same fort, new army.  Saves a lot of trouble that way.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam and part of my famous Vacation and Workbench series.

At least I assume somebody worked on all of those benches.  Eating is work, right?

Had a great Thanksgiving weekend.  We went to visit family in Michigan.  I needed to work on Wednesday, but I left at about 2:15 and we were underway by about 2:45.  Got to LRN8’s house just a minute or two before midnight.  Pretty smooth sailing all the way.  We enjoyed Thanksgiving day, Friday, and Saturday with the family and drove home on Sunday.  A few spots of heavy traffic and the restaurants and gas stations were incredibly crowded, but we managed.  All in all, we had a nice time.

Work is busy, busy, busy!  I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for our current phase, which should end just before Christmas.  After that, it’ll be another couple of weeks of extreme busyness followed by our probable return home.  Looking forward to that!  We’ve been here a bit longer than predicted, although we always knew it could be up to a year.  It’s been a great job with wonderful people, but I think I’m finally ready to move on to the next thing.  Whatever that turns out to be.

LRN4’s website attracted a bit of high-profile attention this week.  LRN15’s mom mentioned it to some visiting bigwigs at her job with a daycare provider.  The ‘wigs were impressed and are planning to recommend it to parents of their tykes.  We’re hoping a whole lot of people start using the site.  Fortune and fame are just around the corner!

Oh, and go to her website, click on her Amazon links, and then buy something.  Anything.  She’s an Amazon Affiliate, as you know.  Or click on one of [amazon asin=B0042Z55RM&text=my Amazon links] and buy something.  I’m an Amazon Affiliate too.  We both have pretty serious financial juggernauts going on here.

Time for bed.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: ice-cream woman attack!

See you tomorrow.
