some how, proly by way of folks shopping until dropping from extra low priced items being sold off for christmas window filling and prw holiday mayhem.
i hope everyone had a lovely holiday yesterday.
is a time of commercialism at its best..or worst. thank gods i dont have that to deal with here.
my kind of black friday is an i miss my brother kinda day.
with rain and wet everywhere.
the sky is crying, but it is crying because sandra is pissing on mexico. she is quite beautiful, but……she is still a storm with a name. she actually ot to cat 4 status out in the deep blue sea, and is aimed at mazatlan. glad i didnt get there yet. i have friends spending the cane time in san blas,mx, for bottom work. woulda loved to be there when they are, but the repairs on this boat aint working in timely fashion.
i still need mast(mizzen) stabilized–yes there is rot below spreaders andit is significant now.. wasnt there last year. ok
and i neeed to tune rig some–it is floppy. ggrr…but cannot do that here..
and i need to find me some decent jerry jugs for my deck stored diesel fuel, so i am able to make mazatlan without stopping for refueling.
and i need my engine man and an electrickeryman here to ready those parts for travel. that has been arranged, now pending
and do daily need stuff…. and rent goes out of wak in december, so i need to fix before december… 1400 usd monthly isnt conducive to repairing and using dock space for prep. ok.
and so promises of help fail.
no one shows up.
folks have lives of their own,and i am seeking someone, a mcguyver, without a life yet is decent human for accompaniment–and hopefully the individual hasnt 20 voices saying to kill me, as last one did..lol..always fun and exciting…and hopefully someone willbe able to troubleshoot problems as they arise–no i donot count on way too much, do i….
and so i am prepping with help at intervals from locals, but they, too, have lives and homes to repair and ……
and so i am trying my best to get ready to leave a lovely safe and definitely overpriced dockage to travel a shiplet to mazatlan with issues. ok. we see if we live thru this…and succeed in further travels and repairs as we go. at present that future is unknown, if available.
we only have today. we all know this.
