Shocker: my boys' basketball team somehow managed to win their first game yesterday. I have to admit I did not think they would have a great start to the season given their performance in practices. They won 39-26. They had a great first quarter (12-0) but slacked off in the third, allowing the other team to narrow a 20-point deficit down to 8 points.
We have a lot to work on... a lot! Still, I saw that the guys can play some serious defense when they are motivated. Next game: December 1st.

Little Jules is three months old today. The three months have gone by so fast I can hardly believe it. Contrary to what I thought about infants, a baby can be pretty “interactive” from quite a young age. Jules seems to enjoy being around people and out of the house, which is great, given our lifestyle.
We went on a mini-vacation to Ogunquit with Jules two weeks ago and had a really fun weekend. We stayed at the Beachmere motel for the first time, and I really loved it. We went for long walks on the beach and Jules was hardly any trouble at all. It was an excellent three-day weekend. The BMW performed flawlessly, as usual!

On the automotive front, not much has gone on. Marc has told me my Civic needs to have its front end straightened. I ordered almost all the parts I need to fix up the car and all I have left to find is an OEM bumper beam. Then, I just have to wait for the Boyer’s to be available to do the work.
Winter is almost here, but there are still some pretty cool cars on the road.
Cool cars spotted:
Porsche 997 Turbo
Porsche 997 GT3 RS
