Hi! We are Gary and Cindy Childs. The Little Log Cabin on the end of Mary's Lake. Our family traditon of Thanksgiving on the Island has been interrupted by our 14 year old son breaking his femur on the school playground and not being able to move him at all for the next 3 months. We may have to fly in when he finally can travel again and do our turkey then. In the mean time we have 4 years to go to full time residency in paradise - the island. We will start counting the months soon, my problem will be storage for all of our hobby supplies! We may have to build a couple buildings to house "stuff". Glad to find this site.

Hi Cindy & Gary,

Welcome to the forum, glad you found us! Sorry to hear about your change of t-day plans & especially your son, must be a rough playground. confused That must be driving him crazy not to move. Is he in traction?

Four years to go, that's awesome! Our first-born will be ten weeks old tomorrow. We've got many many years to go before we'll be full time. Rolling Eyes

Glad you stopped in, stop back often!

Rob

Hi Cindy, and welcome! I think I've seen your cabin a few times - it's the fairly new one, I assume... Verrrry nice. We're on ten acres between Mary and Thompson, and our property stretches down to the north shore of Thompson. Not full-time Islanders, but I do hope to begin spending a lot more time there in the years to come. Glad to have you on the Bulletin Board.

Sorry to hear of your son's misfortune... I'll bet everyone is looking forward to things getting back to normal.

Again, good to have you here!

Cindy, What did that boy do Sad So sorry to hear about his accident.

I only seen you once this summer. How have you been? I don't get over
there much. Plan on retiring about the time you plan on being there
full time. Talk to you soon.
