seems motivation, or motorvation, is one of the most difficult concepts i have to overcome, as i have very little at present.
i seriously miss my brother. i did much because of him– sent pix–yeah those were for donny, not for me. wanted to show him how fun life could be.
well. yes life is fun. was a lot funner when i could share with my brother what i was up to.
i really miss him. i didnt realize how much of my motivation was so i could show donny what i was doing. we shared many moments in life, whether we were in same location or distant. now he is gone. with him seems to have gone much of what drove me thru life.
plans always change
i am sitting here now wondering how to manage my finances and haulout fees– damn they high now…i hope i can manage to pull her out of the water before birdee presents with serious issues requiring immediate hauling. i also need to repair that which broke on our trip here from barra. we blew out the genoa on our way here, and temporarily lost fluxgate compass of autopilot. now i get to learn why that happened.
i went door to door comparison shopping–it seems the only way i can afford to haul out is if i careen somewhere or head to guaymas, which i been avoiding like plague. desert doesnt agree with me, and allergy pills here are not the kind i can use. oops.
the only positivities i can see immediately in heading to guaymas would be being able to haulout cheaply and rent a place during the work, and potentially visit with momma occasionally, as usa is only 5 hours away, and momma even closer in goodyear. if i could convince momma to visit, she could ruffle bubbas furrzz with her fingers. he is sooo soft. funny how he grew so much after leaving san diego. his vet in sd weighed him in at 16.5 pounds with admonishment to have him lose weight– but he wasnt fat. he IS maine coon mix, and now weighs in at a very skinny 17.2 pounds, bone and skin with a lot of furrzzz. i love huge cats. the only disadvantage to a large kitty is stuffing his butt into a carrier. seems he will no longer submit to that treatment. patricia cane scared him seriously. he doesnt mind a tote bag, heavy and canvas. there was room in it for him wrapped somewhat in a towel with his heavy duty harness and his tether. he was soooo very good in the taxi and in vet office and on return he was out cold. would look up at me when i was carrying him home. his teeth are good–one is broken, but not dangerously so, and now all have no plaque. that was sooo ugly and he was getting sick from it, so it was way past time.
la jungla veterinaria is the best vet– dr rafael used to be a dockmate when we were first here. bubba had gone once to his office, but prefers to remain on boat.. i was able to hold him until he went to sleep for his treatment. the adventure was as painless an d trauma free as possible. so many vets have ye not assist with yer own scared critter, and that increases trauma to that critter logarithmically. in sd, they would pull him away from me and carry his scareded screaming toothy and shreddy self into a back room, wondering why he was so agitated. he only likes and trusts me. no one else.
i had a lovely vet in long beach many years ago who allowed me to hold my cats when i took em in for exams– that made life so much easier than listening to the scared screaming from another room. that noise is unnecessary, yet seems to be the song of the people of the vets waiting room. oops. i gauge my willingness to visit a vet by the noises i hear from the back of the vet office.
ok so i got cat attended to, now i just need to gather my motorvashuns together to manage my own life and birdee
. but it is so much easier to do stuff when there is someone ye show off for. dammit i miss my brother. we donot know how much we miss another until there is no option for ever meeting up again.
love my new boom. isnt it lovely wood?? is perota, aka ipe, or huanacaxtle wood. i want the other horizontal spars of it also. beautiful stuff and makes for a sweet appearance.
