That issue isn't over until the fat lady sings. They have just managed to stiffle the fat lady so far. It will all come out one day.

I'll shut up now before I get myself in trouble.

Keith I got to thinking and winter is coming on and your home is on an island and the only way to get supplies is by boat. I have been meaning to ask, do you have heat in your boat? I bet it can get rough going across in the winter months, that is one thing that would slow me down.

Down here we can do something if power and all goes out but ya'll are pretty much stuck if things get bad. With wood heat you would be better off than Judy and I would be with just electric heat. I guess ya'll would do like we did back when I was a kid, kerosene lamps and candles. Can you cook on your wood stove?

What about ice at the shoreline when it comes to bringing in provisions?

....and she doesn't even have to be fat! or be a 'lady'! You guys see that 9 or 10 yr. old kid that sings opera??? She opens her mouth and starts singing and you swear there's a fat lady behind the curtain and the kid's lip-syncing! lol
Lots of talent there, but I hate opera.... unless you're talking about Opera the Browser, in which case it's my main browser. Oh well, enough babbling, show more pics!

DM, we saw that little girl on TV yesterday again, she is just unreal, it don't seem possible that the beautiful sounds could come from that little girl.

Bud what a precious little girl but that isn't the one we are talking about. This is the one and she is not lip syncing the song she is actually singing it.

Look at some of her other songs, I like that O Holy Night that she sings.

Both girls have beautiful voices! My goodness, so much talent and they both seem like little sweethearts.

Thanks for the links Bud and Jim.

Before winter sets in we lay in a decent supply of canned goods for starters. No heat in the boat, so that's just something we have to put up with.

We use wood heat all year, and we make our own electricity, so we are never without power.

We use propane for cooking, and the missus has a wall oven and a countertop cookstove. And yes, she often will make a big pot of stew in winter and just let it simmer away on the wood stove all day.

So perhaps it isn't quite as bad as it sounds.

Bud, in all the years we have been here I can only remember one time that there was any ice in the bay here. I have pics of it somewhere.

What is far worse that that is the snow and ice buildup on the rocks when we have to get to the boat. That's a real nightmare! So we always try to keep an eye on the foreseeable weather forecasts so that we don't have to go across in those conditions.

Any snow or ice here usually doesn't last for more than a week, so as long as we have made the right provisions, we're usually OK. Still and all, I'm getting too long in the tooth for all this nonsense any more. I'll be more than happy when I sell up and move over to the big island.

It could, and it has.

The missus took a terrible tumble some time back and caused herself a serious injury. It's written up way back in the thread. Something like a three month recovery time all together.

Good heavens...I just listened to that little Jackie sing. Talk about amazing! I think the 5.8 million views might tell us something. Like nothing you have ever heard from a ten year old. Incredible!
