Renew Your Vows

We had a great time on Thursday night, June 26 at Dodd Stadium. As June is historically a month full of weddings, we 'played' along. Before the Connecticut Defenders game, four couples gathered on the field and renewed their vows with local attorney, Chuck Norris. Rebecca and Glenn, the Morning Show hosts from Radio Station WBMW served as Maid of Honor and Best Man for the proceedings. After the ceremony, there was a drawing for a free night at Lathrop Manor and a reception in the Defenders' Gazebo featuring Gallo wines. Marco threw a mean slider as he threw out the first pitch of the evening.

Curb appeal. It's all about the curb appeal. This is our third Summer at the Manor and the flowers in the front are spotty, at best. This year, we removed the overgrown boxwoods from either side of the front door and replaced them with topiaries on the step. All of the flowers have been replanted to the side garden and the front is a neat row of 2 qt (almost cartoonishly tiny) boxwoods.

The remains of the ditch that you can see in the background from where the electrical line was buried, are now being reseeded. Hopefully, in two weeks, and after this afternoon's rains, we will have grass.

We are still touching up a few things, paint and splashes of color in the front. Refinement.
