Just received our renewal for the forthcoming season, they cashed my cheque, so this means we're definately in. It's freezing here, ice on lake about a foot...so spring should be here soon and back in again.
Can't wait. (we're in Barrie (north of Toronto), Ontario, Canada)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

SD, cracking funny at the expense of a Canadian in late February is not the best idea, our patience has run out at this point ,

To be serious;
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"
A 6 month season in the water followed by a 6 month season waiting to get in the water sums it up, I think.

p.s 8 degrees centigrade today, thing's are heading in the right direction!! For all you people who have year round slips, bite me, why should I be punished just because I was born at latitude 44?
