Haven’t had much to say.

We’re having another hot spell,  and I’m not referring to “raging hormones” or any such thing.  We’re past that. Thankfully.

We did manage to unpack the very last thing from the move home,  which was the outside table that we had on the patio in Vienna. 


I have to say,  the movers did a really good job of packing it up, which meant it wasn’t all that easy to unpack.   Not quite like the movers we had in Puerto Rico.  There were a few items that ended up getting scratched, mostly since they didn’t really have it all figured out. 

Water under the bridge at this point.


We’ve done without an outside table this summer,  mostly since the one that we had out there has been moved up into the “Veranda”.  It’s still basically a three season space,   and too hot to sit in today, that’s for sure.  Too hot to be anywhere outside, as far as I’m concerned.


Sailing has been a bit of a bust on the last two outings.  Hot humid air just hanging around makes for no wind.

So we drank beer instead.  Among other things.



There’s always a way to make the best of it.  I’ll be out again tomorrow night.  Here’s hoping for some wind.


Oh,  and I have to show this next picture to Travelling Companion.

I had her sew me up a pouch thingy for our reading glasses while on board.



As there are (at last count) three of us at any given time who need glasses at the nav station,  I got tired of trying to either fish my “cheaters” out of my sail bag,  or out of a pocket.  Keeping things in a pocket when  on the foredeck is never a good idea,  by the way.  Too easy to lose yer stuff.

So this works.  Get aboard.  Get squared away.  Put your particular version of “cheater” in a pouch.  And you’re ready.  It’s held in place with peal and stick Velcro,  so it could be removed over the winter if need be. 

Now I just have to figure out some sort of pouch arrangement for the camera.  That one is more of a challenge.   Might not happen until spring.  We’ll see.

I have the material from an old blue camp chair that I’m eyeing,  but T.C. says it’s too thick for her machine.  I might end up just hand sewing something. 

I’d have to figure it out first of course. 

That’s pretty much all I have in my pea brain.  Just thought I’d pipe up and say something.


Keep your oars in the water.


Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Nice to hear from you again, was wondering what you up to.
    You keeping busy at least
    We sitting at the Super 8 on Grimsby waiting for repairs on our coach could be another night, not sure yet or we leave the coach and head back to New Hamburg.

  2. Beer in place of wind? That is a good substitute... ;c)

  3. I still miss sailing wind or no wind. Of course, I prefer 10 plus knots but any day on the water is great:)


Well, I've been getting too many spam comments showing up. Just a drag, so we'll go another route and hope that helps. So, we won't be hearing anything more from Mr. Nony Moose.
I guess I'll just have to do without that Gucci purse.
