Winter’s Warning …

2 Oct

They said it was going to snow. This didn’t surprise us – or scare us – much. It’s common to have at least one snow in October. Winter’s Warning I call it. Then things go back to Fall – and often stay that way up until the end of November – or even later.

But … in keeping with modern weather trends … we didn’t just get snow. We got a blizzard. On the worst possible day – a Monday work day. There’s going to be a ton of accidents and misery. Because no matter how regular such an event might be here, people just never seem to be ready for it.

Have a look:

Better get out my snow shovel …

But along side all the other horrific events in this world lately,
I won’t trade you.

So long Facebook …

15 Sep

I’ve had my issues with Facebook over the years. Frankly, my main issue is that I’ve never felt safe on there. Now I recently learned that your Facebook account can be cloned. People can create another site that appears to be yours – without your knowledge or permission – and use it for whatever purposes they wish – and people will think it is you.

Since Facebook apparently can’t stop this, I’m getting out. I suppose it’s not Facebook’s fault – the Net is rife with crooks – and perhaps the chances of such a thing occurring are slim – but, for me, this is unacceptable.

Too bad.

Jerry Lewis … Cowpoke

21 Aug

“I am probably the most selfish man you will ever meet in your life. No one gets the satisfaction or the joy that I get out of seeing kids realize there is hope.”

Jerry Lewis made one Western.
It was called Pardners – with his Soul brother, Dean Martin. 

Somewhere they’re having a good chuckle right now.

Laaaaaaaaaadyyyyyyyy !!!!

It’s been a hell of a slice Jerry. 

Thanks.

Bluenose … Part 3

Bluenose / The Original Houghton Weavers

Bluenose / Part 3

Time to swab the decks.

A mop in both hands!

Hosing ‘er down.

I might have done more talking than swabbing.

Polishing the bell is an special assignment. 

And a joyful one.

Those portholes were tarnished!

Repairing a turnbuckle.

Learning some knots.

Charting course.

Modern navigation.

On course – Mahone Bay

A turn at the helm!
A dream come true!

Steady as she goes.

Bringing her in.

Mahone Bay.

Ready anchor!

Sploosh!

Time for lunch.

Coming Up!: Set Sails!!
