my2fish blog’s birthday: 11 years

eleven years.  the length of time I’ve been blogging about Sunfish sailing.

anyway, thanks again to all of you who follow along and pretend to read my posts, and extra special thanks to those of you brave enough to make a comment or two. [once upon a time, Baydog used to comment a lot… ]

I’ve had fun blogging, sailing, and blogging about sailing, and hope to keep doing it for the near future!

cheers,

my2fish blog’s birthday: 10 years gone

ten years gone.  the length of time I’ve been blogging about Sunfish sailing.

ten years gone. also a fantastic Led Zeppelin song.

Then as it was, then again it will be
And though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

anyway, thanks again to all of you who follow along and pretend to read my posts, and extra special thanks to those of you brave enough to make a comment or two. [once upon a time, Baydog used to comment a lot… maybe Zeppelin will bring him out of hiding?]

I’ve had fun blogging, sailing, and blogging about sailing, and hope to keep doing it for the near future!

cheers,

the starry night

my favorite comic as a kid (and still today, honestly) was Calvin and Hobbes. I don’t think was an original sketch, but it still brings back memories of curling up by the wood burning stove in the living room with a stack of Calvin and Hobbes books to get lost in for an afternoon. 

photo challenge: local

here is my contribution for (last week’s) photo challenge “local“.

this week, share what “local” means to you, and show us where your heart is.

this view greets you at the start of our driveway to our new home. beautiful fall colors.  a warm welcome embrace.

the photo was from a couple years ago, but right about this time of year it is starting to look just like that again.

welcome home.

it ain’t no spring chicken

it has been a busy spring and early summer, but alas no sailing (yet).  we’ve moved into the new house (not totally unpacked and settled yet), and the old house has sold, pending the usual inspection/appraisal/closing stuff.  moving out into the country has given us an opportunity to see a lot more wildlife up close and personal – this guy came strolling up the driveway yesterday afternoon.  might just make for a nice Thanksgiving dinner in a few months!

a special Christmas gift

my 11-yr old son was very creative this year, hand making a gift for each of his brothers and his mom and dad. 

his gift to me was a 2-page handwritten letter, telling me why I’m his hero. 

  
I was/am just a bit speechless.
