I'm quite serious about Yellowstone in winter. As they say, "If you haven't seen it in winter, you haven't seen Yellowstone." Do a Web search for the terms "Yellowstone in winter" and look at the images. It can be colder'n a titch's wit and all the brass monkeys will have fled screaming to the south, but it's a wonderful place all the same. So are the Tetons -- you can ride a horse-drawn sleigh into the National Elk Refuge, if you wish, or ski with a lot of wannabee stars and Big Shots. Why, even Dicky Cheney has a place around there! You could walk into a bar and have a nice chat with him while being molested by movie starlets. Or you could hang out at Bubba's with the real folks....

You can come any time you want and swim in my back yard pond, if you meet the requirements.

You must be very very tiny -- say, less than 8" end to end.

A pool? Swim in summer, skate in winter. Of course, the pool wouldn't last very long if you left the water in it through the winter. Unless it was heated. Then you could swim all year long.

Or, you could visit Amos in the winter and swim in his backyard pond. And go fishing too.

You've a mind to.

Normally, Eiseley would be back today but I think the prospect of the coming school year has driven her completely and utterly mad.

Gee, Amos. I thought I was doing it to rebuild the strength rotator cuff surgery took from me last year. Of course, having a swimming pool available to me is nice; I'd put one in the back yard except for the winters here in Idaho.

I like the idea for the trail through the woods. Maybe this winter, when there's two feet of snow, a temperature of -10F, and a 30 mph wind blowing I'll walk the mile and half over to Appleby's for dinner, or the mile to Perkins for breakfast -- that shouldn't be difficult, as it's downhill. Walking back might be a problem.

Or I might go to Yellowstone again this winter -- THAT is a wonderful experience and you really SHOULD go. Did you ever snowcat in the buffalo herd?

I also get a little exercise cutting the 5,000 square foot back lawn with a push mower....

Feel free to come help.

Well, Amos... round these here parts yer exercisin machines is a requirement. Today it's 38H (Humidex) and 4 months from now it could easily be -38WC (wind chill). I have a treadmill in front of the TV. At the moment I have two ACs, one 12kBtu and one 13kBtu at opposite ends of the house, set at 64F and they are humpin with the aid of two floor fans on accounta I don't do heat.

Besides which, blue eyed redheads can sunburn when it's -30C.

In Nova Scotia we had to walk up a steep mountain trail about half a mile each night to get to dinner, and back down again later to get to bed, usually a bit woozy with wine. The woods are dark and deep down this trail, and bears come round once in a while but apparently are easily scared off. I never met one myself. The first time I I tried to climb this damn trail I had to stp three times to catch my breath. By the time I left, I could stride all the way up without a stop and still be comfortable. I gues it leveled out some or sompn.

There is so much to do in the real world, I've never understood the whole shtick of getting onto an exercise machine to act as though one is doing something.

My cousin once lived in New Haven, Connecticut near the Sound, and in order to clear his m ind between his day job and his sculpture studio he would go out rowing in a single-seat sculling shell he had. He would lift it up and put it on his head and walk over to the shore with it to launch it.

A neighbor of his stopped him to ask what that darn thing was and he explained about the shell, but the neighbor seemed puzzled. He explained how good the exercise was with the sliding seat and so on, and the neighbor seemed dubious. Then the penny dropped and his eyes lit up. "I get it!" he said. "It's a rowing machine that FLOATS!".

I guess its easy to get things backwards when you don't know which end is up.

He could always volunteer to read stories to the kiddos every morning at the library. That would keep him humble.

MOM, I finally put up a cute little mirror on a blank wall in the bathroom. Don't shoot it out one night thinking someone is standing in the room when you stagger in and the hall light plays tricks in it.

Hey, I'm going to the Fitness Center several times a week -- and not just to pick up my wife, either! No sir! I'm doing Nautilus-type exercises and rowing machine and stationary bicycles and walking and all sorts of stuff. And I don't have to pay a dime for it, unless the catch me coming through the window (actually, it's paid for by my health insurance).

Gnu:

We didn't venture far out. We were up to a little place called Burtncoat Head, where there is a little lighthouse and park, and the mudflats come right up to the shore of carved reddish rocks. We ventured out from the wooden staircase built on the pine trail, and went down to the edge, a safe distance, and back well before any danger betide, so to speak. The max tides in these parts run fifteen meters, bottom to top. They come marching in about an inch (vertical measure) a minute. It is a most impressive sight.

The tide race at Mont Saint Michel on the French coast is more dramatic because of the narrowing in, but it is small potatoes compared to the Bay of Fundy. Thirty billion tons of water move in and out twice a day through the bay which has a wide funnel neck which points down into the Atlantic clear to the middle of Maine andf narrows and shallows dramatically as it comes up around Nova Scotia resulting in the Bay, a long sock-shaped body. Stunning lands on every hand.

I am impressed with Canada--kindly people (except for the one nutball in Tim's) and an orderly, civil society, rich in natural beauty. Halifax is very sweet in the summer too. As Eiseley says wisely, it is very different to visit in August than it would be to move there. But my cousin's summered there for twenty odd years and knows all the locals like brothers, and has done well. They all know he's a crazy Yank who launches his boats by hand, but ever since he saved the original barn on his land by rebuilding its foundation, he's been declared an all right guy.

Sounds like Eiseley and the boys had a good vacation, the kind you remember and dream about, that you don't want to end. That's the way they should be. They'll find the charm of Idaho once they go back, and realize they like both places.

Glad to see Amos reappear. And is he ending up in New York State or New York City? If he wants to retain the mellow beauty of his vacation, passing through rural parts of the state might be a better idea. MOM just threw her popcorn at the screen when another body turned up in the repeat of CSI: NY. She doesn't think Amos should go there.

Yes Rap. In spots in the Fundy "flats", 13 feet in a tide change. Problem is, it comes in fast and if you are away from shore between the islands or along the cliffs, when it gets above two feet the current might sweep you off your feet. Been a number of peeps drowned.

When they say highest tides in the world it makes for good pics... and danger for those that don't understand.

BTW... a tide in Alma, NB is twice that but you can swim ashore.

I wondered that as well, gnu. Do that at the wrong time and you can find out exactly how far it is back to the high tide line and how fast the tide can come it. Another neat place to do that are the mudflats around Anchorage.

I wonder if Eiseley knows that the library has moved storytime to 3 a.m. to accommodate the longer school day?

This is our last full day in Michigan and the boys are all in mourning. They want us to move here and live off the kindness of our friends and family and never have to go to school and just fish and swim all day, all year. I don't want to burst their bubble. The lakes and ponds freeze solid here in a few months, and there are the little necessities like a job and an income and permanent housing with more than screens for windows that are kind of nice to have. But I'm glad they've had such a wonderful time.

When you move to the vacation spot, though, I'm afraid there can be a rude reality check. I think I'll let them dream about how nice life is here---without having to experience the reality. Idaho is pretty nice, too.

Flying home tomorrow. And actually, Rapaire, I would rather be the director in Grinnell than here. The economy is a bit better in Iowa.---or Idaho.

Well, Mom, I cannot begin to describe how stuffed full of sheer beauty my little head is from the last few days. I have sailed at midnight under a full moon, spent a few hours mowing the north 40 on a large Massey-Fergusen with a big brsh-hog deck behind, watched the whales spout and the eagles cruise along the coast from a lonely porch looking out toward PEI from near Livingston Cove, walked the mudflats of Fundy, sung a handful of songs in the wild wind on the bluffs, and fought the gusty breezes from the northeast cutting over the bay outside of Ballantyne's Cove with a single reefed main and jib. Not to mention the grueling transit locked inside tin tubes being fed cocoacola and bad air for eleven hours. But it was worth every aches and pain. I am now taking a quiet lunch in a restaurant outside the Halifax airport.

There is no place on earth I have ever seen as beautiful as Nova Scotia, and I've seen many. We drove the coast road around Cape Breton up to Baddeck and back, gaped at the islands in the Bras D'Or lakes, ogled the Bell home up there, and came back to Gabe's farm in one day.

We leave for New York, Cleveland, and San Diego shortly, so I'll talk to you later.

BTW, I have finally made the grade and eaten Tim Horton's donuts and coffee. I saw Shane in the Tim Horton's over to Antigonish, wearing a strange gown; he had dyed his hair purple and was trying to convince the ggirl behind the counter to give him donuts on credit for his friends "in the mother ship" but she wasn't having any of that. There was a very beefy RCMP officer sitting there watching him suspiciously as I left with my coffee. Dunno how it turned out...

Indded, SRS. I have never killed a bear and I have been in TOO close proximity to back bears in the 6 to 700 pound range that viewed me as "never seen one a them things before... I wonder" way back in the woods but I had a formidable weapon, knowledge and caution (when I used to hunt years ago). I can't imagine actually hunting an even larger and nastier beast with a pointy stick, even with the mechanical advantage of a throwing device.
