Well, we didn't make it up to Quinsig, but we did play with the hose in the front yard a bit. We hit the 99 for dinner and caught most of the 9th and 10th innings of the Red Sox game.
After dinner I took apart and fixed the VCR. It was playing just sound and no picture. After a bit of poking, shaking, blowing, whacking, it now works again.
