Here are Loyal Readers Two and Four overlooking one of those beautiful valleys in Pennsylvania. What a beautiful place that was.

Went out and visited the Faulkners tonight. It was the first time I had met them, and they’re very nice people. It was a pleasant way to spend the evening. Their football-playing son is just recovering from a broken jaw. No, he didn’t get it in a game (warning: while it’s certainly not a disgusting picture, squeamish Loyal Readers might not care for it) or even in practice. He got it while roughhousing with buddies after a scrimmage. Oops. He’s out for the season.

Apple has updated iTunes 7 already, but it didn’t help me at all. It crashes all the time! I got on the Apple website and looked at their forums. Somebody suggested turning off the Sound Enhancer function. I tried it and it seems to have worked. Until it crashes again, that is. Apple really has a huge black eye on this one – it was bungled massively. They were apparently in such a hurry to get movie downloads before the competition that they pulled a Microsoft and released software for their customers to beta test. Very bad form indeed.

LRN4 got the license plates for the Suburban today, so all we have left to do now is the trailer. She also got the front tires replaced, which was overdue. I still need to get some license plate bolts for the front. The ones we had on there before got rusty in Virginia, so I threw them away when we got to Pennsylvania, one of several states that issue only one plate per car.

It’s late again, so I have to go to bed. Maybe I can find time to write some more tomorrow. See you then.
