 Suzy Says

Hello to Everyone!                                January 11, 2015

The first snow of the season is still on the ground.  It happened Saturday night and with the freezing temps, it has stayed.  I got home Saturday just as the snow was starting.  We only got 1-2 inches-depending on where you live.  We are still at the transient dock.  The water is coming down but we still canít walk onto 6.  We arenít going back until we can and that may be some time this week.  The only piers currently with access are 5, 9, 10, 11 & 12.  The ramp on the transient dock is still level and has yet started the tilt down.  We have sunshine now and had a lot yesterday with water dripping off the top of the boatóice cycles everywhere.

Thatís it for now.  Stay warm.

One picture is of the power for pier 6, and one of the gate. The other one is of the scaffolding in front of the club.  They put this up while the water was high so they could reach far enough to paint, caulk and wash windows.  These pictures are also not at max water height.  Emory took them a day or two before.

For those of you who are not on Emory's morning weather report, the picture to the right is the critter that has become know as "THE LITTLE SHIT"

 

Once again this year at Thanksgiving a group from Green Turtle Bay gathered at Kentucky Lake State Park to share  a holiday meal and fellowship.
Marti May entertained the group at Dale and Carol's condo rounding out the day.

A Farewell  Night for Pat and J.T.

As Suzy mentioned in ďSuzy SaysĒ, Pier Six has lost a dear friend. Brent Worley will be remembered by most of us far longer than we knew him.

His easy smile and his gentlemanly demeanor let you know right away that he was a kind, thoughtful, and sincere person. Brent was easy to get to know.

And he was eager to take part in every pier activity. While he was taken far too soon, in a larger sense, we all know that he has been relieved of his earthly bounds and the massive pain he suffered for the last months of his life. I know I speak, not just for myself, but for all of his many pier six friends when I say, Brent will be greatly missed. He was a great guy to know.
