Just chillin at the Clachan Inn

It's been pretty messy here while we've been sick, so it's a good thing we trained Inara to help us clean.

Here's even a video if the pictures weren't good enough:

What a good helper!

Also, I think Andrew and I have found a new hobby. If Andrew finds a job he thinks he might apply for, we google the name of the town (he's applying all over the world), find some facts (such as population, crime rates, etc.), then google earth it to street level and picture living there. You know, walking around, which house we might live in, where we would go eat. The last one was great. You may not have heard of St. John's Town of Dalry, located in the Scottish lowlands with a population of about 500, but I was already picturing becoming a regular at their only pub - The Clachan Inn. I would learn to say things like: "You're not from around these parts, are you?" in a thick Scottish brogue to the occasional lost traveler and claim to be the rightful owner to some castle. We also did this for Schenectity, NY. Not as pleasant, but educational. Who knew a town upstate would have a higher crime rate than NY City?


  1. I love how you picture yourself living there. That is such an awesome idea. I love it!

  2. Dang it Barb, you were supposed to comment on MY post not Maria's.
