Steve & Sandy

After writing the last comment about my youngest son and his 1st dog, Sandy, I decided to find the pictures of them as both of them grew up. Here are 5 of the pictures from the time we got Sandy as a pup until she was older. Steve was 13 when they first met (1st pic) and the last was sometime after Steve graduated from HS. Sandy was probably 6 or 7 years old by then. You can see her face is getting whiter.

Anybody have anything for a new post?

We ran out of room..over 200 comments.  When we do that's lights out.  I had to come up with something in a hurry to have a place to continue to communicate so I asked little Vertigo to help out.  Remember him?  If anyone has anything..please put it up.

"Running Scared" earned new feather today

Today the flood water was down almost a foot from yesterday.  No rain and a strong north wind helped.  I finally got the nerve to escape my island home.  Cabin fever was setting in pretty good.  I was flush with toilet paper and Coke but needed to see the mainland.

Neighbor drove my truck out to show me how to do it.  Much of the drive..I could see the yellow line in the middle of the road.  I took a few pics through the front window.  There's a pretty bad glare but you can still see the water.

After I did my chores on the mainland..I came back.  Now it was my turn to do it on my own.  I waited for someone to come up that I could follow in.  Still a tad on the scared side.  Finally a truck came up so I cranked up my truck to follow.  That truck left me way back in his wake.  When I caught up with him..he was turning around.  I still had the deepest water to go through but now I was on my own.  I did it and I earned a new feather.

The first 4 pics are the trip out and the last pic is of my wharf.  I can now see it through the water.  It's cold out today but the sun is out.

God willing and da creek don't rise...

The first two pictures are looking down the road in both directions.  I think I have the only section of road that is still above water.  The next picture is looking over at my neighbors new bulkhead.  It's usually 3 ft above the water.  The last picture is where my wharves used to be..well they still are there but you can't see them anymore.

If you look close in pic.#3 you will see Harry the Heron.  I saw him fly down by my camp and tried to sneak out to get a pic but he was faster than I was and flew off.
