Summer in Winter
Okay, so it's not actually winter yet, but with the snow and cloudy days, it seems more and more like it. Anyone liking the 'dark by 4:30' days?? Me neither. There has been a bit of ice forming on Cooks Bay, but nothing too serious. If you can believe it, I actually heard a go fast boat out on the lake a couple of weeks back. Those goofy die hard boaters. . . .
Before we get into the 'summer' part of this posting, I wanted to announce that we have another member of the Boogaboo family! On a sad note, we lost one of our two cats - Mr. Wiggles - back on Remembrance Day.
Yes, it was tough, as he had been with us going on 15 years and was a real part of the family. He was also a buddy of our other cat - Fester, who has been really sad and lonely since loosing his friend. A cat, sad and lonely you ask? Absolutely.
So, I'm happy to share with you all the little ball of terror we adopted this week. His name is 'Micro' and he's fitting in nicely to the Boogaboo home;
Mr Wiggles? Fester? Micro?? Who the heck comes up with these silly names? Anchor Girl? Commodore Frankie? Hmmmm . . . a mystery, for sure.
Alrighty then, on with tonight's show. All of the photos and videos in this post (except for fuzzy little Micro) were taken on the weekend of June 14th, 2008
Here's the cast and crew trying to dodge the cork that's about to fly from Sanja's champagne bottle during the toast to the official blessing of SunAria;
And we also have a video clip of the event (Stand back!);
On the Saturday evening, we took the dinkies for a ride out to the lake to see the sunset. This was taken at 8:00, as we were heading back in from the lake, right at the Peninsula Resort;
This next one is simply Graham - hamming it up on the dock. Yes, I am aware of the risks that I take putting myself in harm's way to get these shots, but it's worth it :-)
Tonight's final one I filmed with someone specifically in mind. Last year I got a message from the captain of the 'Indian Princess' thanking me for what he referred to as the 'winter band aids'. These were the warm summer scenes that I like to share with you all in the bleak winter days and nights. So, Paul, this one's for you;
Lastly, I wanted to let you all know that I have been working diligently on the year end video and I'm happy to report that, as promised, things are shaping up to be a laugh filled review of the season. I'm glad that all my friends have a good sense of humour - we are all going to be using it come February! On that note, I also wanted to pass along a note that I'm in the midst of expanding the viewing area for the year end video. Yes, the hammer and wrecking bar have once again found their ways into the Boogaboo home. . . . It's no wonder that the off season goes so fast for me!
Hey! Less than ELEVEN WEEKS to go till Frankie's February Follies, Volume # 8! Be sure to keep an eye here - or both of them (sorry, Graham) - for updates & - for the first time ever - a preview of the year end video!
