I spent this past August locked up at my folk’s cabin north of Huntsville working on my dissertation.  I got a lot accomplished (hopefully only a couple more weeks before a full draft appears).  Near the end of the month I ended up with a bit of an ear infection.  After a few days of pain, I went into Burks Falls to see the doctor.  It was a pretty simple visit.  I told her that I had an ear infection, she looked in my ear a confirmed my suspicion.

Now, I haven’t had an ear infection since I was a kid.  Back then, a trip into the doctor while at the cottage was rewarded with a small surprise (usually a small toy of some sort).  So… after leaving the doctor, I decided that I should reward myself with a trip to the local flea market (it’s worth the trip if you are in Burks Falls area)… and look what I found!

It’s a 16′ Champlain canoe made by the Peterborough Canoe Company!  It needs a little TLC… but it will make a nice addition to the fleet!
