The first home improvement project

After ripping all of the carpet out of our house on August 15, 2001, our next ambitious home improvement project was to finish our basement. Over the last few months of 2001, we studded out the basement, completely stoked that we were new homeowners and we were Doing It Ourselves.

And then, life happened. Tons of other things happened. We redid our bathroom. Twice. We ran new wire throughout the house. We landscaped the yard, built a deck, and started restoring a classic VW.

Finally, though, we've returned to working on the basement. And, keeping with true Sparks form, we had a delivery from the local lumber yard during our recent vacation. Because nothing says rest and relaxation like power drills, Sheetrock, and dust masks.

Martin Guitar

Took a little trip north to tour the guitar factory. Someone was a little in love.

Walking in the park one day

Me: let's cut through Pretzel Park.
Him: ok.
Me: do you know why it's called Pretzel Park?
Him: because that's where the rapists get you and tie you up like a pretzel twist?
Me: uh, no. It's because there's a pretzel in the park.
Him: on the ground? Like a fossilized dinosaur pretzel?
Me: no. None of that is true.
