TSBB General Talk / Re: End of shorts and sun guar...
Last post by Spot - Today at 07:16 PM
We hit 90 today. I was doing some epoxy work and the last bit in the cup went exothermic when I moved from shade to sun to fill in a few screw holes. I did not make it to the lake but got the big boat off the stands and back on its trailer and a large hole patched on another boat.
It got into the 60s before daylight this morning (68F). I had notions of getting the boat out but there were other things going on, so I didn't. Very warm in the afternoons though, with it still 90F. No rain...the grass at the Labrot House on the beach is crunchy  :P
Dear Righteous,

I could be perceived as guilty of two of the 3, but Misogynistic I am not! I do so appreciate CB's perv photos. I was only suggesting you might enjoy a new look. Ah, the print medium can often be misinterpreted. It also seems what a man says, and a woman hears can be based on wildly different interpretations. By the way I am a big fan of bag pipes.

Yes, it is true I am a man of many hats! As a longtime beekeeper and when working construction, the pith helmet is a favorite of mine. I like the woven ones as they are cooler during the summer. My top is indeed thinning, and needs to take refuge from the sun, cold, or rain when possible. I appreciate your concern.

I had hoped to post a photo of me wearing a pith helmet, but for some reason the photo attachment isn't working for me. You wouldn't have anything to do with that would you?

Yours Truly

Dear Dug,

How DARE you refer to pore ole Heloise Hinckley, as a bag pipe!  :'(
To be sure, the HH family tree does have Scot, Irish, English and Welsh (clearly, HH's ancestors would sleep with anybody!)  ;) but Heloise Hinckley has NEVER had ANYTHING to do with bagpipes.

What a sexist-ageist-misogynistic question!!  >:(
Ann Landers has had the same hairstyle for DECADES, and Dear Abby too, and nobody ever asks THEM about their hair style!!
Heloise Hinckley can't help but notice that in all your camping, kayaking and sailing pics, you are always wearing a HAT!!
What are YOU hiding, huh?   ???

Heloise Hinckely's Helpful Hint for Today:
To improve trip report pics, try exchanging a Tilley hat, or baseball cap, for a beekeepers headdress!
So, THERE!!  ;D

Good luck! That qualifies as a good excuse to take time off from cruising. :)

Air b and b could be good. We saw some on the listings. Let me know if you have one in mind. We have 9 people but some have already booked hotel rooms.

Record rainfall here on Long Island (NY), nearly 9 inches over 2 days, with cool temps. However, tomorrow Monday, all systems seem to point to one last sail. Nice SW breeze, and high tide is around 2pm, which for me means a window from about 12 noon until 4pm. My youngest, (22 YO son) wants to skipper, with myself as crew. I've promised not to get in the way.

Took my Monty 15 to it's indoor storage location, so sailing done for another season.  I hope to sail tomorrow with my friend in his new West Wight Potter 19.  Wish us fair winds for the last sail on Lake Katepwa, Saskachewan.

We saw the Pinta after Hurricane Sally in Pensacola. They draft 7 feet but the captain said the depthfinder was reading 6 inches where they were at. We think they used air tubes to roll her out to deep water but we weren't there when that happened. We did bring them pizza for the entire crew one night while they were aground.

I may be able to help you with places to stay depending on the number coming and your budget.
I know some ABnB near the yacht club.
