Eaton Canyon

Eaton Canyon, originally uploaded by AmagoMundi.

Tutu took the four of us up to the Eaton Canyon Nature Area for a
picnic lunch and a splash in the arroyo today. We didn't find any
rattlesnakes or poison oak.

Cool Quote from Persuasion

"and soon words enough had passed between them to decide their direction towards the comparatively quiet and retired gravel-walk, where the power of conversation would make the present hour a blessing indeed; and prepare for it all the immortality which the happiest recollections of their own future lives could bestow."

Sounds a lot like my life so far with Amy. I really loved this novel.

Chapel Hill

I guess now is as good a time as any to say that we are moving to North Carolina next summer. A year too late to attend the Merge Records 20th anniversary show, but just in time to take advantage of a sweet associate professor position (with permanent tenure) at UNC. So after seven years in South Bend we are making the move south to sunny Chapel Hill, the southern edge of heaven.

So if you know of anyone who wants to buy a really cute house in South Bend, send them our way.

First Snow

Today we are enjoying our first snow of the year. The first snow of our last winter in South Bend.
