Can you guess what these are pictures of?

Answers will be in my next post.

That's what I call a big yawn!

Westford hits 98F yesterday

On the local news last night, Westford was at the top of the list for high temperatures in Massachusetts towns yesterday.  I don't know if that was a record or not, but I see that Hartford hit 99F and beat their record for the day by 5 degrees.  And Worcester hit 94F and beat their record by 4 degrees.

Time to lug the bedroom air conditioner up from the basement!

It's not easy getting your ducks in a row...

... or perhaps I should say "ducklings in a row".  This bunch is actually a sub-group of 14 ducklings belonging to this proud mother mallard.

Havoc at the end of our the driveway

We were without electricity for a while last week and lost telephone and Internet connections for a day, due to a neighbor's pine tree breaking off at mid-point and crashing across the end of our driveway, taking down our utility lines.  Notice how close it came to the driveway light!



I ended up coming home from work and parking in the high school parking lot. We were fortunate enough to get our landscape guy, Tim Johnson, to come by early the next day with his chainsaw to clear a path for us.
