I hope you all don't get tired of cat photos.

This is the dress that I wore in my sister's wedding. I love this dress, but I haven't worn it since then because I gained some weight, and it didn't fit quite right. I put it on, just to see, and it seems to fit better now! Maybe I'll have an occasion to wear it this fall...
Our neighbor two doors down has his garage (and his front yard) lit up quite strikingly. If you look closely, you'll see that his apple tree dropped a whole bunch of apples in his driveway. Good thing he doesn't park his car in the garage!
One of the programs for teens we had this summer was a Chinese Opera Mask workshop, led by staff from Binghamton University's Institute for Asia and Asian Diasporas. I was so impressed with some of the teens' work!
Before Eric's cousin Lizzie left for college, his grandmother had everyone over for dinner. Everyone will miss having Lizzie around, but Grandma Yetter will especially miss her company.PS - After uploading a good number of photos, I realized that I had missed another day in between this photo and the previous one. However, I'm too lazy to delete them all, upload another "whoops" placeholder, and then re-upload. I hope you will forgive me.
The Vertical Focus Steel Drum Band came again to our library to teach the teens and tweens how to play the steel drums. Their director is a fantastic teacher--at the end of 45 minutes, fifteen kids who had never played steel drums before were able to play a short song together!
One of the programs for our summer reading program was the Vertical Focus Steel Drum Band. We were lucky that the weather held off long enough for us to hold the program in the garden. The kids really enjoyed being able to dance around to the music!

I believe that we were on our way to get Mexican food when I took this shot from above the empty lot on Front Street in Owego. Soon there will be a park in this spot--it's going to be fantastic!
We went to visit with Eric's dad as he was setting up his cows at the Tioga County Fair, and as we were leaving I had to stop and get a shot of this ticket booth that had been abandoned under a tree. (I kind of want to bring it home...it would make a fantastic photo prop, don't you think?)
When we went to visit Christie and Tim, Baltimore was having its Artscape festival. We got to see a lot of interesting things, including cars that had been fashioned into these incredibly complex pieces of artwork....and they still drive around! It was awesome.

Michael Albert is a pop artist who creates artwork from cut-up cereal boxes. He came to lead a workshop for the teens and tweens at the library, and he made an original piece of artwork for our library!
Wacky Chad was one of the performers that we had at the library as part of our Summer Reading Program. As you can see, he's kind of a crazy person who does a bunch of insane stunts. It was quite enjoyable to watch.
We hung out with some of Eric's family at the Lost Dog in Binghamton. It's an awesome place--great food and great atmosphere. I love these lights--I wonder if I could find a place for lights like this in our house...
