Talyn & Alena are in Minnesota for the week, so I'm playing the role of bachelor for a little while. Besides keeping up with Le Tour de France (which, I admit, can get quite addicting), I'm taking the opportunity to install our sprinkler system, which we've been procrastinating since last November. So far, all I've done is dig a big hole in our front yard - the water main is a whopping 5' underground! Luckily, my neighbors Chad & Gilbert have helped out, out of the goodness of their hearts. Gilbert digged quite a bit and encouraged me on by telling me that, in the time of the railroad, the Chinese outworked the Irish, who were bigger & stronger. I'm so glad I don't live in those times...

My favorite part so far of bachelorhood, though, is the voicemail I received the other day from Alena:
If for whatever reason the audio doesn't work, download the file here.
It makes me smile everytime I listen to it. Doesn't that just melt your heart?
