After Hamvention I decided to go for my technician's license. When the local ham radio club offered a free class at the community college nearby that just sealed the deal. My husband was fully on board of course and willingly got out of work early on the nights that I needed him to. A four nights of class and a review session and an exam later and now I have my first amateur radio license! Whoohoo!!
Meanwhile we went to NEAR-FEST in New Hampshire a few weeks ago and to keep our daughter busy we brought some LEGO with us. She quickly made some bracelets and we set up a display. She made her first sale before the end of the day. She'll be selling more of them at our local craft fair in town in December.
I should post a picture of those bracelets. Hmm..
NaNoWriMo is around the corner and a friend got me on a Rick Springfield kick just in time. She had read "Magnificent Vibration" and said it was good so I borrowed her copy and read it.
That followed with me reading his memoir which has been listed as one of the top 25 music memoirs or something. It was very good and I just finished it yesterday.
SO I'm fangirling on Rick Springfield although I'm not going to spend $50/year on his fan club or whatever. I did spend a few bucks on some cds though, both old and new. Maybe that will be my soundtrack for NaNoWriMo. (Oh yeah I've blogged about him before, haven't I? maybe?)
And yeah Rick Springfield was in Vietnam! F++K! Even Bruce Springsteen can't say that.
It's going to be tough doing NaNoWriMo this year because I also want to study for my General license and the next chance to take the exam for that is at the end of November so the two overlap pretty much exactly! Yikes!
So there you go.... oh yeah I'll be at the Big E in January for the railway show again too. Hopefully I'll actually have a LEGO MOC built by then. I think I have all my parts. I just need time and space to do the building.
