Larry and Joe Zabelski (father and son) took out some trees and opened up the grounds to sunlight and air. It also removed a few trees that seemed to threaten the house if another tough winter arrived. It looks nice and thank you S&L Tree Service of Harwich, MA

Plan A is to get some pretty plantings in to beautify our home's entrance.

Looks nice. The area above is behind the house and will get some forest suitable shrubs.

We had a team of guys come over and paint the trim on our house. We are pleased. The work was done under difficult conditions, damp and rain the next day, and the guys did good work.

Here's what's available in our immediate area for 2019. Some races offer a double handed division which appeals to Norm a lot. It is always fun to get a full crew if we can pull it off. 

Gotta have a pic. Right? Averisera during our first year of ownership in 2007 
There is a funny story to go with the picture. Ask Elizabeth.

I attended SA from 1963 through graduation at the end of the 1968 school year. Later, I lived on campus for a few years with my parents who were faculty. I think it was 1973 that was my last year there.

The 50th reunion for my class was last weekend, Oct 5-7, 2018. A couple of pictures and a few words.

Prior to leaving the Cape, Matt said he wanted to stop at a Waffle House. We did!

One day, it rained biblically. Forgetting that Florida rain is a daily factor, I left the car window open. Oh well...

Matt Tobin after shucking the 72 Katama oysters he brought with him from Martha's Vineyard. Matt rigged himself out in att the gear, bib not shown.

Our house on campus from '64 through '76 when mom and dad decided to leave teaching at SA. It was a nice place to live. A small house with a big outdoors.

Nice to be home with Elizabeth!
An interesting trip. Boca Raton is polished and refined. It sits in stark contrast to our home area of Cape Cod. Here is our little house just an hour before the team of Jamaicans showed up to paint the trim a new color. Nothing like this in Boca!
