We enjoyed that part of our trip in August. Travelling the back roads through Amish country. We basically stayed off the interstates the whole time.

Right now I am doing my very best to get back to normal in a part of the world that ain´t as well connected to the mother country it belongs to. Gerona has a lot of material things going for it. The flats have decent interiors, the schools and public services are plenty, but the ambition is so high, the people want to kick over mountains and flatten hills. Inside, everything´s great, but on the outside, you gotta be so careful cos you never know who wants to go where and how far they´re gonna go.

But you know what, yesterday and the day before, I was visiting a part of spain that has got a lot more in its favor. Alcala de Henares is a thriving and developing part of the country that´s really coming into its own. Heck, they´re building new residences on the outskirts that are expanding the city limits. Madrid´s taken charge of the place and rightfully so. It´s really making the place a fun spot to be and I was really happy to have spent a day and a half there. Wish I could have stayed longer, though. Oh, well, there´s always a next time.

Not much today. Went to the church at 3:30 to set up for the 5pm service. Practiced with my band at 4. Played the service. Went for dinner with the band after. We all take lead on songs. Some are better suited for my voice. Some are better suited for others. We enjoy it.

In bed late last night. Our high school football team won Semi-State and is heading to the State Championship in Indianapolis the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The lovely Mrs_Bob and I drove down the last time this happened (6 years ago?), might do it again this time. The team has come close several times since.

The only thing holding us back is that is the ONLY weekend I don't have a fencing tournament and it would be nice to spend a weekend relaxing.

I'm heading to Wisconsin with my fencing team this morning. Should be a very long day. I have 1, maybe 2, girls who can get medals. I think 1 of my "possible medal" girls is sick so I'm not even sure if she will make the trip? I'll find out when we count the kids who are on the bus and see if she is there.

Not sure why, but its been this way since the team started, my boys team is never as good as my girls team. I've always had 1 good boy backed up by a weak boys team. So it is this year. My 1 good boy is only a 2nd year fencer, he's very competitive at Junior Varsity level and can medal in JV events but not quite up to being competitive at Varsity level. My girls team has always had a couple of very good fencers backed up by fairly good fencers coming up behind them.

So today I am hoping to come back with 1 girl wearing a medal in Varsity Saber. And it will be a late return. 4am now. Probably won't be back home until 9:30/10:00pm tonight???

Good luck to both teams Bob. Fencing and Football.

It's time to make the home made noodles for Thanksgiving. Wife makes the noodles and lays them out to dry. Once dried I help with cutting and bagging. Mmmmm I love home made noodles.

Thanksgiving was last month. Lol.

Kids were in the annual Christmas parade this morning with their scouting group. I sat in the vehicle along the parade route watching. I'm heading out soon to play guitar at the 5pm service.

Had neighbor bring over an ancient 026 . It’s been to several “ chainsaw techs “ that can’t figure out why it’ll start ,but won’t take throttle . Pulled the air filter ,which has the choke integrated into it . The spring that holds the choke open was disconnected . So, it was slamming closed when throttled up . Gonna clean the thing up ,do acompression and pressure/vac test on it , change the rim sprocket ,sharpen the chain .

Well , good thing I pressure /vac tested the 026 . Wouldn’t even build pressure ,or vacuum ,let alone hold it . Hole in the impulse line ,and the guy that changed the Piston and cylinder reused the old base gasket ,which didn’t seal when it was reassembled . Pretty sure the impulse took out the original P&C . Kind of fortunate the thing didn’t run right after the “tech “ “ repaired “it . Wouldn’t have made a tank before frying up . Tomorrow is run dowm to MotherStihl’s parts place day !

I have the Stihl 025. Just had it to the shop for a tune up. For the first time in 19yrs it would die while I was using it. A tune up and a new carb got me back in business. Great little saws.
Next week I'm planning to buy a slightly bigger one that my local Stihl dealer has marked down $80. So it's $299 instead of $379. Sale ends Nov 30th so I best act soon.

I am currently celebrating the arrival of X-Men: The Complete Collection. From the First Class to the Apocalypse, I now have all the X-Men film to date, save for Logan, which I thought was absolutely horrible shit to say the very least. I almost got the luxury to obtain the digital copies too, but a fucked up international law prevented me from redeeming the codes.

Doesn't matter. I got the discs. That's what really counts in the end. They're all in good condition. Tomorrow, I attend first class. LOL.

Put up 10 strings of outdoor Christmas lights in the trees. 10 more strings to go. Took a desk downstairs and replaced it with an artificial Christmas tree. 10' tall. And too damn heavy. I think next year I'll be replacing this tree with one that weighs less (assuming the lovely Mrs Bob allows it). Lifting the top half into the bottom half to assemble it took way too much effort.

And simultaneously tracking one of my high school fencers who is competing in 2 days of of a national USFA fencing competitions down in Peoria, IL. She picked up a 7th place medal in the Midwest RJCC/ROC Region 2, Div 2 Senior Women's Saber event tonight. Tomorrow she competes in the more competitive Junior Women's Saber event so it will be interesting to see how she does.

A friend of mine is at the same event, he's competing in the Men's Epee and Saber events and I've asked him to act as my high school girl's "strip coach" if his event does not take place concurrently with her event. I'd love to have him come and be a guest coach for our school but his work schedule conflicts with our practice times.
