For friends, family and the random search engine visitor. This blog started as an experiment in mobile blogging from my Palm TREO 600 700 Prē HTC Evo,Samsung 5. Now it serves as a simple repository of favorite activities. Expect bad golf, good fishing, great sailing, eating, drinking, adventure travel, occasional politics and anything else I find interesting along the way including, but not limited to, any of the labels listed here...

Notes from the spring opening.


Some items of potential interest to family visitors at the lake house for the 2014 season. In no particular order:


The Barnetts are still reliably delivering wood (with venison sausage bonus). The two new cords in the shed will burn but are still a bit green and there are only a few old dry logs left on the rack.


The Fishing Wall of Fame has been restored to the entryway.  I like it. Your mileage may vary.


The window bird feeder is re-installed for the season in the Den / Media Room with an insect proof duck tape seal:


The birds found it a lot quicker this time (at least the chickadees did).


The shed was cleaned (sort of) and little red wagon battery hauler was repaired (thanks to Brian):


Since we now have more batteries to charge... this will be helpful.


The spin filter is discolored but should still be purged by every visitor.


I tried to consolidate all the various manuals/documentation for camp devices in a single hanging file box.


It is currently sitting in the lakeside (sunrise) bedroom closet.  Open to suggestions on where to put it.


I left the big ladder in the back bedroom to accommodate any needed roof inspections.If you want to remove it, it is easier to take it over the balcony rather than down the stairs.


The remote control drone fishing boat battery is kaput and needs to be replaced.


Pontoon boat key is hanging in the usual key hanging place.


Somebody should build storage shelves here:


After cleaning the shed, I started a metal debris pile behind the shed in the hope that "free pickup" metal debris guy would pick it up, but ...


... he never returned my call. So it's still there. Somebody should figure out a way to get rid of it.

There remains a limited selection of  Matt's generous contribution of localish craft beers in the refrigerator. To whit:


The ones that are left are mostly flavored brews. This selection helped to confirm and reinforce a personal bias. Excepting aging in bourbon barrels, I just don't like flavored brews. Not coffee, not chocolate, not honey, not flowers, not fruit. Not in my beer. Not even in high quality craft beers.

No offense. It's not you, it's me: 

I do not like flavored beers. 
I do not like them far or near.
I do not like them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like flavored beers.
I do not like them far or near.

Finally -  I will be sending a separate post and/or email on the operation of the new/old pontoon boat. That is all.  [UPDATE: Pontoon Boat Operation Orientation video linked HERE]
