Dorks on the water

Debra had her work pals (Electrical Engineers) out for a sail yesterday. We had very little wind, but managed to make some tracks on a beautiful day. The boys put a big dent in the beer supply, and had some laughs, so good times all around.

As far as toxic water goes, it looks like the killer algae only made a brief appearance, but I'm waiting for another week before my ass touches that water. The sunfish is still waiting to get back in the water. I bet there are a million spiders under that hull.

Received the rest of my cable for the solar panels, so we should be getting that project done this weekend. Had a great time with friends on Thursday night at Jacks. Maybe a little too much fun, as it was a tough morning at work on Friday. I had a half day, which means I leave at 10 AM, but every manager in the place wanted something done before I leave. They do this to me all the time, so this time, I excused myself to go to the bathroom, and proceeded to walk out the back door. Wonder how many stalls they searched before they realized I bailed. The cell phone listed quite a few missed calls. Yes, I will pay for that stunt, but I'm offsite in training all next week, so maybe the anger will fade. I was to the point of breaking yesterday, but the sane voice inside me said it wasn't worth it. "Dude, just walk away". So I did. Then I heard, "Dude, grab a beer!", but I had to be Captain, responsible for 12 nerds, so I watched over the party, and had a cold one when we were tied off for the day. All in all, it was a good day, even with spending the first four hours with asshole managers.

It's back

Toxic Algae is back in Sodus Bay. Damn, I thought it was not going to pop up this year, but last week I told Deb it smelled like it was back, even though we could not see it. This morning there was the spilled paint look of the blue green slime floating around some of the docks. I just got the sunfish gear out here too, but I'll be damned if I'm going to get any of that crap on me. 

No wind today, only dark skies, and occasional rain. Once in a while the sun comes out to steam us. Looks like a project day, with a few Gin and Tonics thrown in.

Sweaty in Sodus Point.
