So it's almost been 2 1/2 weeks and all I've got to show for it is a computer in the emergency room. She finally gave out and I got some local yokels checking her out right now. So as a result I am wring this on my phone and that is hella frustrating so I will make this short. Things HAVE happened in the house and there will be pictures as soon as my baby is back and running. Demo-Jimmy's knock-it-down-yourself service went bezerk on the wall in the green room for instance and Linda-Lou turned 19 Maple Av into a strip joint by taking on one doorframe at a time.
We also rung in the new year in good Clintondale style since all our guests traveled less than 5 minutes to get to our house. It was a low key and civilized evening with intellectual conversations and sipping of fine wines. Oh wait. That was the original plan... Need I say it failed miserably.
So for now I just want to wish everyone Happy New Year and hopefully I will return in full on Monday (oooh fingers crossed and holding my thumbs as we do in Sweden.)
