Friday Funny 12/08 (Differences in Weather)

Bill lived in Minnesota for a time.

My cousin who lives in Texas, just posted on Facebook that it has snowed at her home.

Now that's something you don't see every day in Texas.

Friends, and family in Fairbanks, and Anchorage, AK just posted that it was raining. Their roads are slick, and they're being advised to either stay home, or drive with extremely caution.

Thompson Pass, AK was closed due to avalanche.

Thompson Pass ended up getting 76 inches in 5 days time. That's alot of snow!

The weather on my iphone this morning.

Odd temperatures.

These temps brought out my smile. My son lives in El Paso, (that's why I look at that one), our weather is in the 50's, and his is in the 30's. 😁😁😁😁

We took advantage of a warm, and sunny day yesterday, when Jim, and Robin, (new boating friends on MV Adventures), took us for a drive on Mitkof Island, and we had a picnic. 

Just a bit of snow on the ground.

Fishing in the alpenglow.

We're still having fun enjoying Petersburg, and the wonderful people we have met here.

How's your weather been this winter? Has it been typical, or out of the ordinary? Are you traveling this holiday season to enjoy different weather?

As always, we enjoy hearing from you, either here in comments or on our Facebook Denali Rose Sailboat page.

Friday Funny 12-01 (Holiday Decor)

Surprise for Gus, and Elsie

I'm having a hard time decorating for the season this year, but perhaps I have the wrong perspective.  I think I'm putting up decorations to enhance my holiday spirit, but maybe I need to look at it from a cat's point of view. Gus, and Elsie think I am providing them with fun toys in the middle of the night, because they don't really care that it's Christmastime.

"Elsie look! Whee, there's a new one!!" 
"Gus! Stop hitting me, and aim for the target!"

I put up the lights around the pilothouse, and tried to hang colorful ornaments randomly around on the cord.  Morning discoveries.

Fish in laundry room.

This fish was found behind a closed door to the laundry/shop room. Bill puts his socks under the door, and Gus likes to paw under the door, and pull them out at night. Fun game. So he must have decided to get the fish down from it's hook, and put it under the door as a new challenge to go along with the socks.

Octopus on floor

This octopus was found on the floor, apparently he was fun to bat around.

Crab unscathed.

This crab is metal, and wasn't as interesting as the soft ornaments. He is still hanging in place.

Here are the innocent parties this morning. Gus is in his shark, sleeping, after all of his partying last night, and Elsie is waiting on the steps for her morning outing.


Maybe I have the wrong idea, and I should put the decorations OUTSIDE the boat, like this pretty decorated boat that is our neighbor.

Pretty dusk to dawn lights.

How should I thwart the antics of the predators in the night? How do you decorate for Christmas? Do you have other traditions that are a "must do" for the holidays?
