Full weekend

Apart from the time wasted tinkering with Drupal (it appears very probable that Drupal auth breaks under https, according to several rather unclear postings I found) it has been a very full weekend.

On Friday night, we went to the Good Friday service, and it was, as always, very sobering. I had agreed to read something, and didn’t understand that I was to select the thing that I was going to read. Fortunately, John had picked two things, and gave one of them to me. Having rather insufficient time to prepare for it, I found the reading to be rather more moving that I was really prepared for. It was, however, a very good reading, and I’m glad it worked out that way.

We went to the Aviation Museum on Saturday morning with Sarah and Ben, who were visiting for the weekend, and had been camping at the Horse Park. Then they went off to a tour at Maker’s Mark, and my Sarah and I went to the kite festival at Jacobson. Didn’t actually get any pictures, which is a shame, as there were dozens of very interesting kites, as well as hundreds of more mundane ones. I didn’t actually want to fly my kite, because there were so many kites up and so many of them were getting tangled. Sarah got a dragon, and we flew that briefly.

Then we went looking for a motorcycle. It seems that neither Sarah nor I are prepared to part with the Jeep, but I’ve got to find a way to spend less on gas. And I *really* don’t want to pick up a new car payment, as the Jeep is paid for. So it seems that perhaps getting a motorcycle to run back and forth to work might be a possible solution. However, with the weather being so gorgeous, everone’s inventory is very low, and the price range of what I liked was rather higher than I expected or can afford. I guess I’ll just have to keep looking.
