Snow Fatigue Rampant on Peaks Island!!

Five out of the last six days, we had snow. Enough already; it's time for a change; Yes, we can; Spring is coming---someday. OK, I'm babbling and don't even care. Today, at least for today, no snow has fallen. Of course the temps dropped to single digits overnight and the winds increased to about 30-35 mph so it's pretty cold out there. Enough sniveling!!!! Yesterday's scenes from Pebble Beach golf course and the Pro Bowl from Honolulu were certainly appreciated!

Last Friday night, we decided to enjoy ourselves with a dinner out at the local, downfront Inn on Peaks. We settled into the pub and exchanged pleasantries with fellow islanders for nearly three hours. We were seated at a table for four and two by two, different friends just came and went so it was a fun February evening. In another part of the Inn was a PTO buffet served to raise funds so many, many anklebiters were out and about. Many people coming into the Inn were making the rounds of the Gem Art Gallery and the Cockeyed Gull restaurant which were also hosting fund raisers. A busy Friday night on Peaks Island indeed.

It's been cold enough and I've been trying to keep up with all the island council activities plus our taxes so I haven't done very well in getting around the island to grab a few pictures--I will do better---soon! Today turned out to be our dog Otis' shower day for the week. What the hell, enough of snow, ice, wind and cold. Here are some fun pictures of a drowning dog surviving his weekly bath; smile and enjoy; I sure did. Survive the winter and remember the Red Sox equipment truck pulled out last Friday and pitchers and catchers report in two days; a great Valentines Day present for Red Sox Nation after the Super Bowl letdown.
