It's winter!

Just got home from the post office, slid down my driveway and into my parking spot. Damned I hate winter in Maryland.


Merry Christmas everyone,

Gary

Re: It's winter!

Re: It's winter!

Mike O'rielly, yes, that is my place, been here for just about 50 years, and it's nice and peaceful summer and winter. My home, which I built most of myself, sits in the middle of 5.5 acres of land, the house is tight against the woods behind me, and it abuts to 2.800 acres of woodland.

Mike1, yes, that's me singing and playing the keyboard. I recorded that song about two weeks ago and posted it on a music forum. Here's a link to the full song: https://app.box.com/s/pg23kv3ls79tunbxt06gbx214n2uxxc4

Merry Christmas guys,

Gary

Great skiing here in Vermont. Over two feet of snow in the last week. I love winter!

Re: It's winter!

Geeze, if I lived there, I might never sail away.

That is a truly beautiful space Gary. Youíre a lucky man.

Re: It's winter!

The temperature is just 16 degrees f right now, way too cold for an old codger like me.

All the best,

Gary

Re: It's winter!

We got three new inches of snow last night here on Long Island. But, I've been keeping busy inside. Cleaned and protected battery connections and gaskets for the dingy's portable bilge pump. Repaired the speed control knob on the electric outboard. Working on a proto-type sail loft table for the den in case I decide to build a new sail for the boat this winter. Oh yeah counting the days to a charter in the Maldives. After I get back from that trip the mooring permit for next season should soon arrive in the mail with it thoughts on the new season of sailing.
