    ‘‘ A police speedboat rescues a boat capsized after a massive storm during the Bol d'Or sailing race on Lake Geneva. ’’

    ‘‘ A woman has drowned in Lake Geneva when her sightseeing boat sank as a violent storm battered parts of Switzerland on Saturday, police said. . . . ’’

    Here's one of the a day later posted reports of the about 40 dismastings, and more reported trouble....

    ‘‘ . . . The storm caused an estimated 40 broken masts while a number of boats sank and several crew members went overboard, according to organisers. . . . ’’

    I've linked the above post on the thread Mast and boom: Matching set for emergency dismasting (post #44), as that thread is a bit related.

    On another mountain lake (Sea of Galilee) it's said that one once calmed a storm there . . .

    You reminded me of Van Lear, Kentucky, childhood home of Loretta Lynn and me.

    That's a lot of draft Hoyt !

    About growing up in Van Lear, that must have been hard times when working all night in the coal mines wasn't enough to feed a family, and all day subsistence farming was needed to be done too . . .


    ‘‘ Well I was born the coal miner's daughter
    In a cabin, on a hill in Butcher Holler
    We were poor but we had love
    That's the one thing that daddy made sure of
    He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar

    My daddy worked all night in the Van Lear coal mine
    All day long in the field a hoin' corn
    Mommy rocked the babies at night
    And read the Bible by the coal oil light
    And everything would start all over come break of morn

    Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay
    Mommy scrubbed our clothes on a washboard everyday
    Why I've seen her fingers bleed, to complain there was no need
    She's smiled in mommy's understanding way

    In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
    But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
    From a mail order catalog, money made from selling a hog
    Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere

    Yeah, I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
    I remember well the well where I drew water
    The work we done was hard
    At night we'd sleep 'cause we were tired
    I never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler
    Well a lot of things have changed since the way back then
    And it's so good to be back home again
    Not much left but the floor nothing lives here anymore
    Except the memories of a coal miner's daughter ’’

    I see Peanut's cousin still lives there somewhere . . :)

    Buddy might be singing about Loretta's sister...


    Later Dan sang about the boy who wouldn't hoe corn...


    P.S. —

    Here's an about last half snippet of "The Boy Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn" version by Veerle Baetens & The Broken Circle Breakdown Bluegrass Band

    Dutch Belgian beach news - Sunday - June 30 - 2019

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Some beach guests were in Vlissingen (Flushing in English) washed off the beach by the wake or rather the bow wave of a ship, and were pulled into the Western Scheldt by the returning water, most swam back to shore, three needed to be rescued, no deaths and only minor injuries were reported.

    Below the North Sea beach as it was left in Blankenberge, ± 25 tons of garbage per summer weekend is cleaned off the short (65 km) Belgian coast.

    Bottom below's a Juli 17, 2018 pic of a beach surface cleaning and garbage collecting machine operating in Blankenberge, also showing the Pier, of which the Dutch wikipedia page has more pics, also of the previous version which was destroyed in WWI.

    Butcher Hollow(pronounced Holler) runs east of where our house stood and Miller's Creek, where I learned to fish, runs through it. We never ate the fish I caught there because the hills above held too many outhouses. Running north from where our house stood is Possum Hollow, (pronounced Holler).

    Yes, I've noticed Loretta sang about Butcher Holler, and some also write it that way...

    an air cooled noise maker ?

    I've just learned the town of Van Lear KY is named after Van Lear Black, who at sea had the dangerous habit of sitting on the rail while smoking, and so fell to his death off the back of his yacht Sabalo off the coast of New Jersey. The boat itself has an interesting history, she was built in 1916 as a private yacht, then went into USN service (USS Sabalo SP-225) during WWI, after which she resumed her life as a private yacht, then went into RCN service (HMCS Cougar Z 15) during WWII, and later resumed her life as a private yacht again, not being available anymore for any future WWIII, as she sank to her final destination during a hurricane at Kingston, Jamaica, in 1950.
