The Caretaker has decided to start up with the narrative again, today is the day, it seems to be as good as any. The Caretaker would like to say "thank you" to all his loyal readers who have been keeping up with his photography these past few months. It seems that the last time the Caretaker posted a narrative to his blog was around the middle of May. What follows is the Caretaker's attempt to get you all caught up with what has been going on in the life of the Caretaker these past months and so with out further distraction:

Things happened. The Caretaker did stuff.

When the Caretaker woke up this morning it was another chilly start to the day, however, not as cold as it has been these past few days. According to the weather report this warming trend is supposed to continue, it would certainly be nice if this were to prove to be true. Yes the Caretaker is looking forward to the Winter, but he is not looking for it to come upon so soon. He seems to be getting his wish, at least for now, it is now around 9 o'clock at night (EST) and it is currently warmer outside than it is in either the main house or the Ghetto.

Ha. Ha... Ha. Oh how the Caretaker amuses himself with such silly jokes, about the past 6 months or so, to be honest what he wrote above pretty much sums it up, however, there are a few things he could and should expand upon, and he will, but at a later date.

Autumn has certainly arrived, the leaves on the trees have begun to change, and it is probably safe to say that they haven't peeked yet. This coming weekend could be pretty good viewing for the "Leaf Peepers". The Caretaker has had two sightings of Loons on the Lake over these past two weeks: one was just the other day while coming back to the Island, the other was early in the morning while on the Island. The Caretaker heard the call of a number of Loons all at once, so he leapt out of the Ghetto with camera in hand and raced over to East shore of the Island. They gave off quiet a number of trumpets, but unfortunately they were rather far and there wasn't enough light so none of the Caretaker's photos came out well, so he deleted them all. It is still early in the season for all of the Loons to have migrated South for the Winter, there is still hope for more opportunities to hear and see Loons before the Winter winds begin to blow.

There is still much for the Caretaker to do this night so he will leave off for now, if all goes well, he will pick up again tomorrow evening.

Welcome back.

Very happy to see the commentary back, Jeff. The loons! The Loons! This is my very favorite time of year up there. Back when I was 'persona grata', I would take over for the caretaker when he left for school and spend the whole month of October on the island. It was heaven. What wonderful memories!

Hey Lisa,
Glad to be back.

The Caretaker said...

Hey Cord,
Yes the Loon's have begun their migration South, it is good to hear their call. I'm happy to be writing the commentary again, hopefully I will be able to provide content worthy of reading. The place is still heaven, you should come out East sometime, good luck out West.
