Yes, this blog is hibernating

You may have noticed why I’ve taken to calling this my dearly neglected blog. Here’s some support for that moniker:

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,000 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 33 trips to carry that many people.

Soon I’m going to have to update this blog’s cover photo. Because that aluminum on top is coming off tomorrow!

I had to climb onto the porch roof with the paint guy to show him I was serious about doing away with the last of the aluminum on the east gable of the house. Seems the original roof planks are peeking out at the top of the trim on this side. And we’ll likely want to do something to cover that. But it’s no reason to keep this silly sheathing on. Having loathed the look of that stuff up there for nearly 13 years, I am ecstatic.
