My Favorite Bookmark...

My favorite bookmark is a Christmas card envelope adorned with an original Jenny Lerew drawing. I-love-this-drawing!  (And I love reading Sherlock Holmes on rainy days).  If you are visiting my blog, then it is highly likely you know of Jenny's blogs.  If you don't, they are a real treat!

Check out Jenny Lerew's Blackwing Diaries and Blackwing Sketchbook.

Pinewood Derby!

My son and I are looking forward to his first BSA Pinewood Derby this weekend.  His car weighs in tomorrow night.  Weighing in at 4.45oz with a graphite-lubricated-reinforced wheel base, added chassis weight, and a mean looking paint job (including a painted scythe), he is ready for the big race on Saturday!

We have an extra engine block (if needed) to get the car closer to the maximum weight allowed (5oz).

Ready, Set, GO!!!
