Leg 5 – Storms, Puppy, Snow, Fires – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape
Prepare yourself.  I have left you waiting for the continued adventures of Lex Go Further – A Ford Escape for far too long.  It is now time for photos of the puppy interspersed with snow, food and a couple of tweets.  But mainly industrial-grade puppy cuteness. When last we spoke, I had just gotten onto a skidoo for the first time in m [...]

Foster & Spook Got Away

Foster & Spook Got Away
It has been a hard week for my friends and their beloved animals. I just heard that we lost Foster. Sadly, we didn’t just misplace him and he didn’t run away this time either.  He just got away. Early this week we lost Spook, a beautiful and strong Arabian who was loved and ridden by many. My sympathies to Fozzie’s family, both the [...]

5YAT: Hey, Are Those Voices?

5YAT: Hey, Are Those Voices?
8 January, 2005 – Grey & Clear –10º Snapped awake at Midnight. Heard 2 male voices out my bedroom window, and then a low chuckle. It sounded like they were very close, as if they were just down the path at the School House. So I rolled out of bed onto the floor so I couldn’t be seen through the window. Got dressed and went down to see wha [...]

5YAT: Golden Glowing Xmas Day

5YAT: Golden Glowing Xmas Day
25 December, 2004 – Warm & Windy [This post is part of the 5 Years Ago Today Series] I woke up early with a vision of a glowing golden Xmas tree in my mind. Foolish to think that Santa had come and made my Xmas morning filled with a glowing golden light. Hell, I don’t even believe in Santa Claus cum Santa Claus – and yet I hesitated getti [...]

5YAT: Bubbling Ice, Stuck, Happy, Yappy, Nappy
12 December, 2004  Sunday – Warm & 2º [This post is part of the 5 Years Ago Today Series] Ice still in on the Glen-side – but it’s covered with water. The ice is bubbling – it’s as if the river were slightly carbonated. You can hear it clearly from the beach and it’s fascinating!  Dad suggested that if I ran down with a bottle I would hav [...]

5 Years Ago

5 Years Ago
5 years ago today I woke up on an island, unsure of when I’d be able to leave. It was a good day, my father was being let out of the hospital after open-heart surgery. He was going to stay with friends who I knew loved him dearly and would take amazing care of him.  I knew that the entire community was rallying around and signing up for daddy [...]

Not Alone

Not Alone
People often ask me if my father lives on this island alone. He doesn’t. There are 8 dogs, 2 chickens, some where between 3 and 30 rabbit, a pair of eagles, and a myriad of other birds and creatures in the woods. I ran into this little guy grabbing lunch as I was walking through the forest. And of course we can’t forget the visit [...]

Media dogs

Media dogs
The woman with the camera from CBC loved the dogs, but since only Pork Pie and Meatloaf came out to help, the rest were howling away. There is a great clip in her final video of the ones who had to stay on the island howling.

Way we go boys

Way we go boys
After an ungodly early start to my day i finally arrived. Sandy was kind enough to meet me at the airport and take me to the store. The store rests atop the *** hill, which is a joy to go down (way down) to the river. Did i say “joy“? I meant freakin’ terrifying! Especially when you’re on a dogsled and the snow is pack [...]

4 Ways Saturday

4 Ways Saturday
I’m behind in my 4-ways, (boy am I glad I didn’t decide to post 3 photos a day.)   So I’m going to do a mad dash of photos  – no explanations.  You want info, you have to ask. So there!

Day 7 – Crossing, crossing, crossing
We were up early and off to the island around noon. (I did mention the wine, rum and dates didn’t I?) Sledding was good across the river. Lex took the dogs the final leg to the island, where the entire rig got stuck on an ice/snow hill with the dogs on one side and the sled on the other. Unpack, poked around, sent Peter for a nap and th [...]
