Friday we said farewell to one of Gary’s interns. She did a lot of work on the topic of language policy and some of her research will go directly into the Ethnologue. She requested carrot cake with cream cheese icing.


Friday evening she and her mom joined us for dinner, but I forgot to get a photo of that event. We’re eating the leftovers this weekend.

This morning we went to Rachel’s house and worked very hard for two hours in her backyard. Gary trimmed the bushes and emptied the gutters while standing on a rickety old ladder. Rachel and I raked leaves, cleaned out the French drains and ran the trimmer. Now Gary and I are exhausted, and he must be even more than me because he came home and mowed half of our lawn after that.





Yay, Rachel got her car out of the shop after 19 days.
