BOB AND CAMILLE MAKING THEMSELVES AT HOME
YOU CALL THIS COLD?
A storm turned our new home into a winter wonderland. So to speak.
After 9 winterless years, facing sub-zero temperatures requires heavy duty layers. Bob heads off on his early morning walk to work in his "Bunny Bomber" on December 6.
MORE MONKEYING AROUND
Bob's midlife answer to monkey bars is this Habitat Project. He uses the bucket on the Track Hoe as a lift to reach and rip out the 2 x 4's on the roof of this pole barn on December 10th and 24th.
With expert coaching from our fearless leader, we prepared to remove the trusses. First, Bob hooked a chain from the bucket to the first truss.
Then he tied a strap to one end and guided the truss over to the flat bed.
After the truss was in place, Bob climbed up on the truck to help guide it onto it's side while someone else worked the other end.
After playing around on the pole barn December 10th, we hurried over to the dedication of the community's First Community Garden.
Peter MC'd and Bob spoke about the many benefits of community gardening
Camille remembers her cooking teacher who is being honored by a community garden bench made from 100% recycled plastic.

A WALKING TOWN
While in Haddonfield, New Jersey for James and Kathryn's wedding, we took advantage of the wide sidewalks for a stroll through town.
The first thing to catch Bob's eye was the Haddonfield dinosaur. Hadrosaurus foulkii, the first nearly complete skeleton of a dinosaur was discovered in 1858 and named after the town.
Bob takes a closer look at some of the oldest graves in Haddonfield.
