Southern influence evident this morning, a slight SE draft, bringing rain, 4C temps, very dreary looking across the brown lawn towards Ross Island, far from a KODAK MOMENT. Similar weather conditions with higher winds in the forecast.

Local news quiet, the annual pilgrimage to southern climes beginning to gain momentum. The girls basketball competing this weekend for Provincial Title seem to dominate coffee conversation. Fishing news quiet.

Dear Rob:

It is +5 here with a slight mist. Good day to do something outside.

I just can't imagine how poor Otis is coping! Jeanne did elaborate at length about the damages - just didn't want to write it on the blog. Knew you would know what I was talking about.

I can't imagine how one tank of oil can cause such havoc. Jeanne said it was everywhere.

And, for Otis to be 91 and still living alone with just the dog - guess what - who cares if the house is immaculate? I am still betting it is cleaner than mine a lot of days. The kids will have me locked up in some home by the time I am 65 :)

I liked your comment about the brown lawn thing - that is the one thing I hate about spring. It looks like hell and you can't do a thing until it dries up - if it does. Blarg! We still have complete snow cover so none of that yet - however, the mist should knock it down some today.

Good luck with the clean-up (I assume you are stupid-vising) and have a great day.

Word. Chunks

p.s. The poet guy who was featured in Saturday's paper: that was the purpose for Jeanne calling me. She and I had gone to a talk at the museum last year and he was there talking about repairing the instruments. He was very imformative - if only his wife would let him complete his own sentences haha - but I had no idea he did the poetry writing as well. We liked him.

Morning CHUNKS,great weather day yesterday, could actually get the feeling spring in the offing in the next little while.

The cleanup at Otis's a hell of a mess, besat discriptor that I can say. No workers on site this week so far, adding to the confusion no information on the time table for completion. When they started figured two weeks max, well will take quite awhile to replace the carnage remaing, don't believe they have captured all the oil as yet.

Marge certainly took great pride in her home no doubt about that. Not quite the same now, Otis has vision restrictions. He and the dog wandering about the place don't require the level of proper presentation to visitors as once could be expected.

Have a good one.
