Winter's a comin

Jackson Creek, Deltaville - not always violent weather

Our summer in Deltaville is almost over and we are now preparing to winterize. Virginia seems to offer plenty of excesses of weather: we have experienced extreme heat for days on end, biblical inundations, violent thunder and lightning and we are told that heavy snowfall is not out of the question. It's no wonder that John Smith and his band of adventurers had such a hard time establishing a foothold here in the early 1600's.

John Smith is saved by Pocahontas pointing her titty at him in the nick of time.

Around the beginning of November we will head to Kentucky to catch up with horse business friends at the broodmare sale and then on down to New Orleans to see our daughter. Lest anyone should think this cruising business is all rum and sunsets here's a little bit of Mandy's summer makeover.

Having spent 30 years in the racehorse business we felt it was time for a different kind of adventure. Both originally from England we have sailed for fun for over 30 years. We have owned MANDY for five of those and are planning to head south for Mexico etc. in November 2008 - ready or not. [...]

There Goes Mandy!
