    At least some folks get to enjoy their runabouts this time of year… Out here in the great northwest we’re experiencing our third straight day of heavy rain and high winds! On top of that I’m sitting at home with my two littles and we all have wonderful chest colds… Maybe some brunch bacon will cheer us up?

      Mostly sunny and 65 degrees here in Cleveland today. Did my last gasp cruise last week and winterized the two boats today. Turning lousy by weekend, but I’ll take it – been a great fall this year!

    55 degrees, 50 MPH winds, light rain at about a 45 degree angle – I’m watching my Costco shelters try to fly away, but the Dakota and Sindbad’s original trailer are keeping them grounded. – I always tie the shelters to the thing they are protecting – A boat ride would be a bit wild today – sort of like any given afternoon on Chelan or the Snake… 🙂 Hope no trees decide to give up and hit the house/shop – power is blinking and we have lost the internet a few times already this morning….

    Super nice here today. 54, sunny winds at 10 mph. One could in theory go boating, but you would have to hurry up and winterize before the weekend.

    Wow, a major celebrity, Wayne Carini, lol, But the real talent is his “mechanic of older cars” Roger Barr, he’s quite a character, always good for a laugh, a Shakespeare quoting, white haired curmudgeon who knows how to tune Dusenbergs, rebuild Shebler carbs, and get neglected Ferrari’s to start.
