Here is the fundamental problem with Blogger: it is free, and therefore sucks. There are bugs. Sometimes it will just stop spell checking for a week or so, for instance. (So be merciful when judging my spelling ability based on this blog!) Currently, it's doing a thing where it's decided not to let me re-arrange pictures on a page. I'm assuming that application will come back later, but in the meantime, I will give you a shorter post than I planned, mostly pictures, and well, not necessarily in the actual order they happened.
On Saturday I turned (gulp) 35! Jeff and Kurt took me to the beach.
