First time in a while. A little hard. Did five 10-stroke pickups, last one at 1:48-1:50. Got my attention.

Seemed like kind of a busy day. Worked on the spreader some, identified its problem, a broken belt tensioning spring. Now I need to get one, so perhaps a few more days to deal with that. Moved the woodchips pile, although Zack did most of the work. Can't spread it now, and didn't want it to take root where it was on the side of the driveway.

Jess, Jonathan and Cooper arrived, and we set Jonathan up for his hunting adventure tomorrow. We went out with our neighbor Joey who hunts on our property, and saw where he has tree stands, got Jonathan the instructions he needs. Mostly, don't end up like these guys.

And between a lot of wood chips shoveling and walking out to the far end of the property to look at tree stands, I was pretty tired by the end of the day.

Usual stuff, better than might have been expected.
7 AM


Zack was waiting for me when I got out of the gym. He had rented the chipper, cut down a bunch of 40 yr old former Christmas trees. Not what I was hoping to be working on my first day back.

In Brescia, staying at the very nice Vittoria Hotel in the City Center. Rhonda and I walked up the hill to the Castle, where it seems folks all walk their dogs in the mornings. Brescia is quite nice, quite livable. Our friends Tullio and Giulia met us around 10 and we went to the Santa Giulia historical museum. Quite unlike any museum I have seen. Much of it is an archaeological site well below the modern street level, and it is enormous, extremely well preserved. Lots of old houses, mosaics, frescoes, bronzework, etc. also lots of artifacts from the Longobard era starting in the 6th century. Fascinating place, but tiring. We repaired to a very nice lunch at a Lebanese place, where I had lamb with pine nuts, basmati rice, vegetables. Then back to see the old Roman Capitolium and theatre, the old forum now a city Piazza, and the archaeological sites under. Then a few stops on the excellent underground metro to their apartment, where we saw their daughter Cristina and her beautiful baby girl Ginevra. Tomorrow we leave for home.

Took the boat to San Servolo this morning with Rhonda, George and Leslie. Nice day to be on a boat. Venice is a awash in Santas today. Boats full of them rowing in the grand canal and in the lagoon, hundreds of them with numbers on apparently running a 5K or something like that, others just hanging around. Quite interesting.
