I would move down there Kevin, but ya got no snow, ya got no rain like we get in one day, ya got no cold weather like we have, and ya got no old man like me wanting warm weather in the "what" the hell is going on this year 8O did I say that right?.. No I'm still happy here, just wish it would warm up a little around here, this is still "Juneuary" here :-< :wink: ..We should warm up by August. Good to hear from you Kevin, hope your doing well Mate. :D "Boats"..

Boats, you want snow, we've got snow, you want cold, we've got cold but not where I live. Less than 2 hours drive from here you can get all the snow, cold and rain you want up in the Snowy mountains.

I'm sure that your weather will improve in time mate, Summer's just around the corner, or is it? :roll:

Well "Well". got back on line again, did Ya miss me?? :roll: Been working mt T-bones off keeping this lighthouse up to par. No Party this year for Eternal Sea Point Lighthouse, just not enough wind left and no one has any interest in what we do do here anymore. But we keep adding a few things off and on. New plants, a few more trees, and paint work on the lighthouse. The big lighthouse is still being built, in fact many changes made and the thing is growing in the shop. Another problem is keeping the computer on line, think we have it working Okay now. The weather has been okay, not to hot at all this year, and I'm okay. All for now. "Boats" :D

Kathy, Kevin, and Mike. good words, Thank You. We live in a sweet spot and the weather is not that bad year round, Texas on the other hand is in bad shap, many folks with out homes, jobs and so on. Which is another reson why the Party for this year will not happen. Can't party knowing there some folks that have no home to go to due to bad weather, been there once. I'll get a photo off to to mike to post for me, not able to post a photo yet. Other then that, Make Fast Mates. "Boats"..

Oooo I'm back on line again, did Ya miss me ?? Well all is normal here, There was no party this year for Eternal Sea point Memorial Lighthouse, too many events around us was the reason and not living in lighthouse lover's lane is the other reason. Gas was at $4.60 plus, the weather got windy and wet at that time. But we did have a little get wet party for the 5 min Happy Birthday thing and then I was back to work cleaning up what the wind took out of the trees for me. We look good around here and I'm getting ready to put lights up for Christmas. Gas is down under $3.00 today, rain, no wind, cold, 44f, and I need to cut the yard again. Doing that two times a week. Yes I'm still having "FUN".. I did get out yesterday to see an old shipmate, The Lone Sailor.. Got more to tell Ya but I'm out of time, Got Work.. "Boats".. [/img]

Well I'm still alive, =)) just got done hanging over 3000 + Christmas Lights on the lighthouse and all around the grounds, did a 360 with lights and I'm all wet. I started about a week ago, still could hang a few more if the rain will stop. By the way the lights or LEDs. Now I did a one min 360 vido but don,t know how or who to send it out too ????. :roll: I'll put it this way, if Ya want to see it, let me know.. Just about any time the snow should be in my Zip Code and I can't wait :D Well its about dark 30 and I better get out side and turn on the lights, the space station should be able to see us I hope. Just "Haven" fun, no place to go and I'm not in a hurry to get there. :D "Boats"..
