Yes guys, we have it really bad down here. But it seems to me that just last winter Ted was complaining about being barricaded in his house with this:

Gary ---- "I plan to live forever. So far, so good."

Good words to live by Gary, keep on working at it. So happy you can.

As for the weather, got a brilliant day sailing yesterday 12 miles under spinaker and my face is sunburnt again. When the weather gets cooler here, I'm gone. We're driving to Cabo San Lucas in November and back about the same time as the snow geese. Best of both worlds.

Anyone can live in a warm climate. It takes real men to live in a climate where you design cargo ships to look like submarines, to survive winter seas.

Gary: wouldn't you really rather see your wife in a bikini laying out by the pool, rather than all bundled up in a pea coat with a snow shovel?? Come on, I don't believe that your would prefer that.

Seriously, we all hope for a speedy full recovery for you. Take care of yourself. (and stay warm.)

Love your sparrow shot. Looks like the birds definitely know that it's best to follow the warm sun, and you follow their example. But last time you went you didn't post at all. Take a laptop with your camera so we can see some of your shots while on your winter vacation.

(Since I can't afford to take off from work in the wintertime, I am glad that I can enjoy warm winters, even though I am still working to pay the bills.)

I admit that as I've gotten old, I am a wimp in cold weather, just can't take it the same as when I was young. Where in the world did you take that photo?? What an unusual boat; there must be a story behind that shot.

I downloaded that from the Internet (Wikipedia) a while ago - it's a public domain photo taken in 1891, a bit before I was born.

I was looking into those ships (look up "Whaleback Ships" in Wikipedia) when your post about winter here hit me so I couldn't resist. It has nothing to do with where I live now (the Mid-Atlantic coast) but it's representative of the Great Lakes region where I grew up. In particular those whaleback steamers were used on Lake Superior, perhaps the most treacherous body of water in the world in the winter. (Gordon Lightfoot's song about the Edmund Fitzgerald was about a real event, on Lake Superior in November, 1975.)

I was seeing if you could get better than an F in marine history, my background...
