About this time in the year, I've lost my interest in snow. However, this morning I must confess it was a beautiful site to see.

Dunn State Park Music Jam
What a strange few weeks it has been. I had a pacemaker implanted on January 25th, came home the next day. I spent a week recovering and getting used to living on battery power. Thankfully by February 1st I was cleared to drive and was able to get together with some folks to play music at a monthly jam at Dunn State Park in Gardner Mass. Here are a few photos:

The Retirement Garden
When I took the early retirement from Hewlett-Packard, my co-workers gave me a gift certificate to Mason Hollow Nursery. I visited the nursery on Sunday and used part of the gift to start what I will call my "retirement garden".My two week retirement is over and I have another job but the garden has been established. I intend to update folks on it's progress throughout the year. Not much is happening now with these new plantings but Spring is just a few cold months away.
