We received these pics from our good friends Paul and Therese Spike, who are our neighbours in Oyster Pond, this morning. Paul and Buddy (the Border Collie that they have as a 'boarder') went for a walk this morning... January 1st, 2009. The first picture is the road that leads from their home to ours, a few hundred feet from this spot.
The mail box, well decorated reflects Therese's friendship with Charlie Brown... you can just see Snoopy's nose poking up through the snow as he reclines on their mail box... he will need a snorkel soon, just to breath in the snow!
When I look at the Spike home, where they have lived on the water for 29 years, I realize how appropriate the blue font is... it is freaken cold out there!
Well, it is warming considerably... this is the view out the breakfast nook window at Paul and Therese's home. It still looks bitterly cold outside, but I sense the tea and coffie are hot, and there is always something warm to eat at the Spike's.
