The tundra swans gather on the Mississippi, down between Wabasha and Winona, I think, or near Alma on the Sconny side.

Boat storage

My boat storage guy moved, so now I don't have the barn in Owatonna to store my boat. Anyone know of a reasonable place to store a boat inside somewhere unheated? Boat motor and trailer about 21 feet.

Nice, clean, indoor storage found west of Cokato, not to far from the ball of twine located near Darwin MN. Now,,, why can I remember all that, but I can not remember the name of the place. Does that help ya?

The Scott County Fairgrounds in Jordan also does storage. If you are interested I can get you costs. It is so much per foot. I know a fair board member but it won't help the price.

I can forward contact info for the storage place I've been using for years. It's about 1/2 miles east of Vermillion, MN on CR-62. I've kept three boat and two cars there over the past couple decades.

Thanks

JJMSP, Darwin is a little farther than I want to go, I do appreciate the work though.
LSGiant, Jordan would work, how much?
Spikehead, Vermillion would be fine too. Please forward me some info.
I might have found a place in Monticello, but can't find the address that the owner told me. Have to contact him again today.

It's Saint Crispins day

On this day in 1415 the English routed, routed mind you, a French force of superior numbers at the Battle of Agincourt.





Great (however many times) Uncle Will wrote a nice piece of prose about it.

It is known as the Feast day of Crispinus Crispianus, so, uh, sure. That seems appropriate.

I couldn't find what the traditional feast would be, prolly roast beef.

Incidentally, the froggies have a nick name for the English, which is roast beefs, because we like to eat roast beef, so that's incredibly funny.

We, in turn, simply refer to the froggies as "wankers" or other similar terms.

The English are always inventing all sorts of days to remember their minor glory's....

But when the shit hits the fan, it's always the Yanks who bail 'em out

That battle wasn't part of the war that took you a hundred years to clear up was it?


Still, yer a good sport you are laddie

Also on this day, half a league, half a league, half a league onward, all in the valley of Death
rode the six hundred.. That one I'm afraid didn't work out as well.

Well done dfc, yes indeed this was a part of the hundred years war. 5 points.

Powershouse is correct, this was also the day of the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade. Surely worth 10 points for broad all round knowledge of stuff. Lord Sweater didn't do so well for us that day.

Not so good that one, although to be fair we did still win it.

If I recall correctly the whole Charge of the Light Brigade thing was to do with a dispute over specialist wooly hats, or something.



History was never of much interest, except for when beating the french.

Does all this banter have anything to do with grabbing a beer in Nordeast after work? Hmmm...?
