Sometimes when you live close to the water creatures find there way indoors. One seven footer even found its way into the basement today. Let’s just say we’ve added a grabber to our amazon list. Our snake actually was pretty smart since it ended up getting upgraded tonriverfront property. Thanks to Dan, Daniel, Jeremy, Amy, Ed, Ginnie and Jake for assisting with our little removal project. Let’s just say it was a real neighborhood building event.
Sometimes it’s good to reflect. Sometimes it’s good to dive in and refresh. We were sitting around and discussed a few ways to brighten up a wall in our house and this little project of water that we know, would be a great addition to a certain wall. The following is a workspace for the framed project. It represents, Quintana Roo, Highland Park, East Brady, Destin, Milwaukee, and West Virginia.
In the spirit of cleaning up my drafts this was started in the winter of 2019, shortly after realizing Reba was struggling physically. She was our rock for the past few years with her little eyes waking me up every morning before the sun would come up. Every time I log on in the morning I see those eyes looking back at me. In going to the river since Reba has passed it’s not quite the same without being pulled […]
In the theme of cleaning up and catching up with life as the 2019 summer winds down, here’s another thought I had that never was published. In looking back over the last three years there have been quite a few of us caught in the housing trap: moving buying selling preparing to sell financing or refinancing thinking of downsizing simplifying I’m guessing this thought started around the time Linds and Chris were house hunting, then would have also applied to […]
What else to do on a Boxing Day? I obviously have had too many things pop up over the past few years. I was going through my posts’ that were never published and found this little gem. It appears to have been started back in December of 2017. If only I could remember the where or why behind this little data gathering project. The funny thing is since then we’ve replaced seals on a few different toilets after this little […]
Crosby was able to nap at home. Leslie and David joined the Kerr’s for a little outing on the Ohio. Yes a new river, with new sites complete with cheeseball and boat snack service. So since Leslie asked here’s the navigation information on the OHIO. We were pretty much on chart 220-222. Amazing how we covered Neville Island and then some. Each part of the rivers are so different. To think in terms of Neil Gaiman’s American God’s we could […]
If you need a minute to breathe, open this up in your browser and play the video. Just listen and take in the water. After reading about the discharge from Olean into the Allegheny sometimes being on top of the water is the better option. It sounds like Olean is not happy either since they tend to recreate in the river. After the paddle debacle at the Anything that Floats, the new ones are a little lighter. Slow river traffic […]
We have a bunny and little birds. It’s really awesome to see them enjoying the growth through our plastic backyard. The ways the birds and rabbit coexist is really a sweet site, if only they knew how dangerous Crosby can make the back yard. The funny thing is now that we are not trying to grow grass we are actually doing a better job of growing it that we did the last time on 5th Street. Here’s a few little […]
Looking back to the last time we tried to watch whales, we had a lot of dolphins, but a great Pacific sunset. This time we’re looking to see them in Canada. Bay of Fundy Whales How close can we get? So why did they arrive so early in 2018? More details on the Bay of Fundy https://vimeo.com/132691245
The water was really nice this past weekend, the wind was even more amazing as it was pushing us up river. Leslie is lucky as the little camera was left behind so she wasn’t captured digitally. We did try the Rivers Edge. The had a Really nice menu and a deck to see the river.
After finishing the morning dog walk/SUP I was greeted by a text asking what would you recommend for a home exercise bike? Funny question since we recently made that decision. Since I’m a big Tim Ferriss listener and a former spin class junkie, I do tend to find instructor driven stationary biking to be much better for my mind and HIIT than the standard Precor, Lifefitness, Matrix recumbent or upright bike. I still bust out my old as it likely […]
Hmm first there was 120, then there was S. Ashley, then 118, and now 814 and 812. I really should have gone to school to be a general. The timing of things is starting to be a challenge, however it’s just another reason to breathe, believe and embrace each day a little more. Things are happening, just a little slower than I’d like. I’m glad this supervisor sleeps on the job, Reba never would have let it go this slowly. […]
