A Buncha Hot Air

Hope Santa was as good to you all as he was here again this year. Sure am glad he shops at all the right boating accessories stores :-) I'm looking forward to hard wiring the new toys to Boogaboo, come spring time.

Here's a video clip of the gang sitting around the Sun Deck. Nothing too special of note, other than a nice, summer evening with sun, warmth & friends. Enjoy.

Down Hill From Here

Well, it's all down hill from here, my friends, as the winter solstice occurs tomorrow (Saturday) marking the longest night of the year. The good news is that the days will start getting longer! I told you this winter would go by fast . . .

Only three days to the Big Day, so Merry Christmas to you all. Hopefully Santa has found all those good deals on the boating supplies we are after ;-) If not, the Boat Show is only three weeks away. That reminds me - where did I put that list. This time, it's A.G.'s turn . . .

OK, up to now we've had the most snow & cold we've seen in a December in many years. I think it's time for another hot & wet (ooh, I'm getting excited) video of some summer fun! This one was taken during our summer holidays while we were in Young's Point at the beautiful Islandview Resort. It features none other than your's truly enjoying some colling off, as the temperature was 88.7 degrees! Ahhhhhhh summer - boating & swimming . . . I love it!!!!

Mini Race Car

Santa arrived early this past Friday, as Ankor Grl (I hope I spelled that right) got her new mini race car. Just wanted to share this with you, so you could see it before it's all dented & scratched up :-( Not only that, but now you know what to look out for on the wild streets of Keswick.

Unfortunately, I had to smash out our fireplace & chimney so Santa could deliver the thing!

Taking Requests ;-)

Todays pic is a bit of a follow to yesterday's comment ;-)

This one was taken heading southbound through Lake Katchewanooka, between Young's Point & Lakefield, during our holidays;

This next video clip is only marginally related to boating (there is a boat towards the end of the clip).
This was the view from our hotel room in Niagara Falls, during our 25th anniversary weekend, back in May. Great view from the Horseshoe Falls, over to the American Falls & the Fallsview Casino at the extreme left. I uploaded it back in June, but just never got around to posting it. Until now. Duh.

Sunny, Sunny, Sunny Days

Well, it seems that my last video post wasn't enough to get rid of this winter weather we're NOT enjoying, but it did seem to help a little with the temperatures. So, here's another warm, sunny, boating vid to help warm the hearts of the boaters in all of us.

It's not entirely exciting - just a little cruise through the Atherly Narrows on the way back homeward. Enjoy . . .

It's Cold.

Still winter. For those of us who live from Newmarket / north, we all had a nice shot of snow Monday. And wind. And cold. Add to that the fact that Cooks Bay froze over for the first time this season last Wednesday and you have the makings of a good (bad) old fashioned winter. Just like when we were kids. Younger ones, that is ;-)

Well, I say it's time for some serious summer like videos to snap us all out of this silliness. So, here's the first one. It was taken during the Elvis Weekend @ Orillia, back in August.

Be sure to pay attention to Mr. Parker making faces behind Anchor Girl's back. He-he-he . . .

Ok, ok - you convinced me :-) Thanks for the (sniff, sniff) sentimental entry there, Stephen J..

Remember (everyone) that, like yourselves, I TOO check this thing every day & look forward to seeing what you have shared with us!!

Thanks. . . I might even do a full, real update on the main site tonight.
