Kevin, seated with keyboard on his lap, next to computer on the floor. The case of the computer is open.
Kevin created his own computer from the basic elements: case, motherboard, graphics card, CPU, 4 hard drives, and DVD/CD-ROM. Here he's in the process of installing Windows XP. The case is open, exposing its fancy lighting system. The keyboard is from a Macintosh. The wire at the bottom leads to an external drive enclosure that is hanging open, because it is not large enough to hold the DVD/CD-ROM which it is connecting to the computer.

Philip hosted a LAN party, or to be more precise, a Starcraft party. Three friends and his brother joined in. Three of them set up and played the game in the bedroom, while two more used other rooms.

It was a perfect summer day, so we ate outside on the sundeck. Steak and local corn on the cob were the highlights.

Scott waving happily with cards on the table, and Kevin.
Scott enjoys the game “Set” even though Kevin always creams him at it. The players must find patterns and antipatterns among the symbols on the cards. The third game of the day was Scott's only win of the year, causing great celebration.

The birthday cake is presented to Scott, who holds a small red fire extinguisher.
Kathy and Phil spent a long time in the kitchen setting fire to this cake, causing some concern about what else might be going up in flames.

DeeAnn and Will's Visit

DeeAnn and Will are staying in Connecticut for a couple of months. On July 30th they came with Gail to visit Great Grandma Turner, followed by lunch at our home.

We said goodbye to the Montagues, and headed to the Turner home for lunch. Philip and I prepared the table with the goal of living up to Kathy's standards, in her absence.

Visiting Colleges

While Scott was catching a cold from Kevin, and entertaining a favorable job offer, he was also travelling with Philip to Pennsylvania and Maryland, visiting colleges. We visited MIT, Arcadia, Loyola of Maryland, Franklin & Marshall, and Scranton.
