Date: 6 August 2016. August Update.
A website friend named Marty wrote
me this week. He said "I see it's raining down there today, and
will bet you're keeping dry and cool. But it's been three weeks
since last post so naturally I need reassurance you're ok. My
vicarious serenity requires occasional updates from the Mistress of
all she surveys." Here is what is going on in my world.
Mallard ducks swim by the boat. I love watching them
in the rain.
Marty is correct about the website. I've been working on a gazillion
(at least two dozen) articles. Few are complete. Many are lacking
photographs. Pictures help bring to life my words. And frankly I've
been up to my eyeballs in the air conditioner pieces.
Those a/c articles have turned
into a monster. I worry that my writing is not "up to snuff" as
folks have come to expect. Or at least I have!
They are finally done and uploaded
though I thought that would happen a week ago.
In the meantime:
I saved a boat from sinking
(not really but to listen to the concerned owner...) and
really the diver was a big part of the solution. Santiago was
Continuing to help another
boater get his stuff organized. He lived aboard but that's been
years ago. In the meantime he's been in an acquisition phase and
most of it has to go.
Encouraging said boat-to-be guy
to throw out Stuff not fix it. Time is not your friend.
Bought a new phablet (10"
screen, with a sim card for T-Mobile)
That is a whole 'nother article. Search (through this link
please) for Azpen 10 on Amazon. It's pretty amazing and now is my
Navigation system with OpenCPN installed.
In my spare time a fellow I met
back in Apalachicola wants OpenCPN. For him downloading the charts
is a bit confusing. I made a flash drive for that boater with the program,
plus charts, Coast Pilots and Chart No. 1. Now all I have to do is
teach him how to use it.
Or start a business doing so for
$$. Hey, maybe that's a way to generate income. I'll have to
ponder that one.
Plus I've been reading. I'm
Amazon for the freebie books.
This Decadence thing is coming
I'd love to hear what you do in the heat of August.
And, when does the weather where you are improve enough to be outside?!?
