Wink Re: What are your other passions?

I appreciate the envy (I will take it as a compliment). I have to pinch myself each day to believe I am this lucky. But after 45 years of working (and still fully employed), 42 years with the same women, and lots of trials along the way I feel I have earned the right to brag a little about what we have accomplished. We have whittled life down to what matters to us.

Anyway, here are the hoses;



I had to move them up off the ground after Irene did a number on our yard and patio.



I had to nearly start from scratch to put it all back together again. I am hoping all this work and effort will keep me young. At least that is my excuse!

42 years with the same women is quite the accomplishment! I can barely keep one happy

Great looking dock.

Motorcycles - owned about a dozen or so and there's certainly another HD in my future
Hiking - although admittedly don't have a lot in common with the granola types I meet
Beer - duh.
Buffet.

Probably has to do with that '60's - 70's' public education system?

Those last pics are on Crane Island in the SJ's.....I believe the owner has already put in a dock for 4 or 5 boats, along with a sea plane. Not to mention the island has a small marina for owners to park there boats when on the island, plus a little marina on Orcas to go to and from via the ferry on Orcas. If you know Hobie Alter, or Warren Miller, they live next door. Tried to steal the Millers Scottie dogs, but they would not let me!

Re: What are your other passions?

OK there was 12 to 18 inches of fresh powder last night and I spent today on the slopes at the Canyons.

YUP skiing is the other passion. !
