Quick update on the new dog... Carl. He has been a very good, albeit rambunctious dog, or should I say puppy. Of course he is a 90 lb puppy, so sometimes you forget he is still young and still lacks basic coordination making him jump and go for a ball one laughable moment after another. His front feet have a tendency of moving quicker than his back on the turns. He's getting better and more coordinated by the day and runs into things less and less now. He loves his walks Morning walk And checking out the upcoming halloween displays the neighbors are putting out What is this dad? He has even been to the high school field hockey games…

Decided to sneak out on a Saturday Evening to get out on the lake and enjoy what might be some of the last warm weather of the year. The water was still warm enough to swim. The kind of water that was cold when you first touch it, but your body becomes used to it and eventually it feels warm. That was this night. Testing the waters! We anchored out around Fish island and I was able to do a little fishing - Not one bite sadly. Not one bite Eventually we relaxed with a couple of drinks Cheers! And sat back and watched the sunset Evening light As the temperature dropped, we would don our sweatshirts and enjoy the…

Evenings on the lake are some of the most enjoyable times. The lake becomes quiet. All the boaters go in, the renters head in for 5 o'clock supper, the people who trailered in the boats need to go home... The waves die down to a whisper along with any wind. You can count on one hand the number of boats left out there. Tons of privacy, quiet, and relaxation as you just float in the broads, maybe jump in the water, have a glass of wine, and just watch the sun set. Waiting for the sunset Time for a cigar There is always time for me to have a cigar on the boat. I've really taken to watching the sunset…

Took a weekend to visit some old neighbors who now live down on Cape Cod. Was an enjoyable weekend. The trip down was plagued by traffic accidents, jams, and all around traffic issues that tacked on an extra hour and a half (at least) to our trip. Stop and go traffic is never fun and the fine folks of Massachusetts seems to make it worse with their lack of driving abilities. But eventually we made it. Nausset Spit Cars were lined for a good mile down the beach The friends had a special jeep all set up with lower air pressure in the tires so we could drive onto the beach. We didn't stay, just decided to check out the…

The new season is upon us. We have recruited some new neighbor's this year who will be over the next Thursday of me writing this. I recruited them on walks, with promises of drinks and cigars and the fact we are not very good at the game so come with very very low expectations. Can't even fool the wives at this point. They know it's just an excuse to get together and bullshit with each other, so we do and enjoy doing it. Tom throwingConnor on watch dutySplash downNot even closeSeth with the throw

Entrance Sign onto the Weirs Strip The 2021 Laconia bike week was a wonderful sight this year since last year it was more or less not even held. Last year they allowed cars on the strip and no parking. This year the magic was back. Albeit a more subdued event this year with a noticeable shortage of vendors and events, but what was there was well done and a welcomed detour. We spent 3 days in the area. Day 1 The first day we traveled by boat to the Weirs and walked around.
