TCC for 4/16/2010
Photos from the archive.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Outside temp: 12 F
Ghetto temp: 40 F and rising
Wind: WSW, mostly calm with gusts up to 25 mph
Sky: cloud covered
Not much to report on the ice or the Lake in general, the Caretaker went on a road trip to Vermont. Left in the morning and came back at sunset, so he hasn't any idea what happened on the Lake today. However, he did hear from the propane guy down in Queensbury that someone went through the ice in the Bolton area, where or if this did happen the Caretaker knows nothing about it other than what the propane guy says. If there is any more news about this it will be passed on. The first photo was taken from the very south end of the Lake, the second one was taken in Vermont. The Vermont trip was mostly a success except for one thing, the ever elusive VENTED fuel can, double handled in particular. Stupid legislators outlawing them everywhere. Our tax dollars at work--stupid rules for stupid people. If you ask the Caretaker he says the country is going down the river in a hand basket and this: ventless fuel cans, is the sign of our demise. The Caretaker is going to propose a new Federal holiday:
"Elected Representatives and their Appointees Parade Day".
On this holiday, sometime during the warmer months of the year, all Elected Rep's and those whom they have appointed must parade down the main street of their town, district, Capital, etc. (position in Government dictates where they will parade) On this holiday the only things the rest of us may possess along the parade route is rotten fruit and flowers. I don't think I need to explain any more about this holiday, I'm sure you get the idea. If you ask me, this is a great way for our elected officials to really know how we think about the job they're doing. Sad thing is, only 50% of the population (if even that much) will show up to the parade.
See what happens when the Caretaker goes to the mainland, best he stays on the Island.
P.S. The Lake George Winter Carnival is all this month, for those who are interested:
It's a good thing Barb reminded me, I forgot about it. Thanks Barb.
