About time

Sailing! We actually got out of the slip for a sail, and it was a good one. We had 10-15, and a little chop on a sunny day with temperatures around 75. Not bad.

How about those shiny new life lines!

Been a busy social weekend, so not much in the way of project progress. Shuffling off to Buffalo to see my family today, which is usually entertaining, but going with a slight hangover from last night out with friends. We like to be in bed by around 9:30. One AM just doesn't cut it. I'll be a dog for two days now. At the bar I saw the nurse who takes my blood pressure in the doc's office. She was having a really good time. It's always awkward making eye contact with your health professional when you're both engaged in unhealthy activity.  She was probably thinking, "no wonder your BP is so high, you drunk old fool.", while I was thinking, "next time you tell me to cut down on alcohol, I'll remind you...damn she's hot,  no wonder my BP is higher in the doc's office. Is this my beer? The band is way too loud..."


  1. OK so go ahead and make our ratty lifelines look bad... they're on the project list along with everything else.

  2. Hahaha. Yes they are nice. Sometimes I just reach out to touch them, because they are so shiny :) In retaliation, you could post of picture of your working refrigeration.

  3. Hey Paul - Did you solve internet antenna issue? I can send you what we did on Magnolia if you like. Send me a note anthony at a2baker dot com. I did not realize you are leaving about same time we are. Today is day 398 (31 July 2013)

    1. Magnolia - We never purchased a WiFi antenna, but need one. I'll be in touch to see what you guys came up with.

      Yes, we'll be leaving in June, and floating around the bay about the time you untie. I can't wait. In fact we're getting pretty restless right now.

    2. Restless is a understatement. The work list is long but we are knocking them down one at a time. AP is 99% complete. Just have to commision and see if it works and then start troubleshooting procedures! :-)
