Not much rhymes with porch, so we'll just leave these photos here.

Both Hank and Kyro enjoy the bits of raw wood. We do have to get any treated wood away from them, though. Not tasty, not healthy. :-|

"We'll be back to pick you up later!"

Today, we had a fun adventure of taking light rail two stops to downtown San Jose to see a home show. We are somewhat of an anomaly at these shows, since we walk right past all of the booths advertising construction services and focus on only a few products for each show. It sounds like, "Nope. No. Past that phase. Oh! What's this?" That moment came today when we saw this cabinet hardware. Not cabinets, but the hardware that enables interesting things to happen. I chatted with the company owner/inventor, who is based just south of San Jose. Just like the kid in the Mr. Microphone ad said, "We'll be back to pick you up later!"

Kitchen help not needed

We would like to say that this is the first and last time that Kyro is up on a kitchen surface,
but that would sadly be untrue. At least this time, she is only on top of the layout of the new island
with the rectangle denoting the cooktop.
