99: Photos of dinner guests, inspecting the cabin...

I finished staining the front today.  Here's the big question -- should I take the stain inside as well, or go with a clear polyurethane in there?  If I go clear, then we'll keep the nice striped contrast between the logs and wood strips.  If I stain it, then everything will match.  If I use clear poly inside, everything will be lighter and feel bigger.  If I stain it, it'll be very warm.   What to do?

Here, our friends the Buddens and Risto Atanasov came to dinner last evening.  Risto is an extraordinary chef -- he brought a large crock pot full of spicy, homemade tomato-basil soup and a massive amount of sublimely-wonderful moussaka, prepared the way his mother cooks it back home in Macedonia.  Mark Budden brought a huge plate of sushi rolls hat he spent most of the morning preparing.  We ate well.

Here they are, inspecting the cabin...

Look up!

Angus brought a crust of bread from dinner...

I handed Risto the big hammer, and Abel joined him for a picture.  Look carefully at the background to see Mark peering out the door.
