Towing the boat to the marina to get the new/used motor.

Finally found a new/used motor for the boat. Cracked the block last July and have been searching for a used motor ever since.

Can you believe that a brand new 115 hp costs around $10,000 to $12,000.

Very happy with my new used motor, 115hp Merc, now I get to use it maybe two times before I have to put it away for winter.


Sailing thru the Wasauksing Swing Bridge

Sailing thru the Wasauksing Swing Bridge, originally uploaded by GAC'63.

This is a swing bridge just outside Parry Sound, Ontario, leading out to the inner channels of the 30,000 islands of the Georgian Bay.  On the left side of the bridge is the mainland, the right is Wasauksing First Nation on Parry Island. 

No that is not me on the sail boat, I was trapped behind these boats as I was heading back out to the cottage, so I took some photos.


Googles Happy Birthday to Keith Haring .. celebrate a life

When I got to work this morning and turned on my computer and this is what a I saw.

First I was sad, Keith died from AIDS in 1990, a wonderful creative artist lost to a horrible disease. But then I began to go thru the links that Google has for Keith, a saw the whimsy, the intelligence, the sexuality & the fun in Kieth's work. I remembered why I have always found him a inspiring artist. A creative fixture on the culture and freedom of his generation.

If you have a chance go thru the collection of his work at www.haring.com or if you can get to the Brooklyn Museum they have a exhibition of his work on right now.

Enjoy. Live. Have a great day. and Smile.


Headstone, Edgeley (Mennonite) Cemetery

I don't know how you feel when a artist or artists pass away.. for me its a loss of my youth, a loss of memory's, a loss of a creativeness. I know people are supposed to die. I know that for some they will be remembered for a long time because of the impact on our culture. It's just a shame to say goodbye. R.I.P. Levon Helm, Dick Clark, Greg Ham, Bert Weedon
