The NCAA final four basketball championship is in town this weekend. Things are hopping around here with a hometown team involved. Lots of interest to see out and about. I was downtown yesterday, tooling south on Meridian Street (Indy’s main north-south drag), and caught a glimpse of this going merrily by on a cross street. There’s also an eye-catching art installation along the interstate to the suburbs. However, in neither case was I in a position to take photos — driving kinda took precedence.
As an aside, I find it interesting (ironic? that’s such a tricky word) that Indiana is basketball-obsessed, when it was invented by a Canadian, whereas I as a Hoosier don’t care much about basketball but love hockey, with which Canada is obsessed. Go figure.
Other madness occurred in my basement, unfortunately.
That’s a brand new water heater. The old one rusted out at the bottom and flooded the place.
Therefore the recovery experts have been, pulled up the carpet, left 8 loud blowers and a huge dehumidifer . . .
and most of the furniture in the garage. I’m pretty sure the cat is convinced a huge monster is now residing in the basement, what with all the noise.
In knitting news, I’m making progress on the vest.
I really like the way the sides work.
However, I’ve been modifying it as I go along and the back, which was the first thing I did, is now too big and I’ll have to frog it. Oh well, one step up and two steps back. No, wait, that’s a Springsteen song. I mean one step back, two steps forward . . . Right? . . . Right?
