Last week was the longest 4th of July week in history!  It was a great week, but with the 4th falling mid-week the public celebrated from June 29-July 8th!  It seemed someone grabbed the fireworks opportunity every night!

Since our building permit is still under review, we took the opportunity to take a mini-cation and do a little research.  We located a fly-in Bed & Breakfast in northern Pennsylvania right next to the NY border.  Oz’s Homestay is in the middle of no where but they run a sky diving school and have a wonderful 3000 foot grass strip.

We flew in our RV-4.  It only took 2 hours to get there from SML.  Take a look at the website and you will see the beds that Ash has hand made.  He is a native Australian (thus “Oz) and also is a wonderful cook!  We picked his brain about the operation.  Planning to spend two night and without wheels, we decided to fly somewhere on day 2.

Jack and I flew to Buffalo, NY where Rob and Kathy (Pietenpol buddies) picked us up and we all toured Niagara Falls. I had been there in 1976 but is still always powerfully amazing!

We arrived back safely to a much cooler temperature in Virginia!  This week, I have a job interview and we are completing the roof of the shed.  We are gathering estimates on excavation, foundation work, and HVAC systems.  I am keeping a large easel pad with notes (how like me) to keep up!  Jack has it all detailed in a “Project Management” software but it is 135 pages so we haven’t printed it.

Today, I travel to Blacksburg to pick-up Mom and wrestle her to the dentist.  Oh, Joy!  Stay tuned and stay cool!
