Another beautiful day in Annapolis

08 October 2008 | Annapolis, MD
Partly cloudy 70, pleasant day
Brrrr.... 40 out again this early morning. I kicked on the heat and crawled under my army blanket before making coffee. We headed over to the Harbor Master's after stripping the sheets off the bed - did a load of laundry while showering. Jan was there doing laundry when I got there and Iain was chatting with Wayne outside the shower/laundry rooms. We stood around chatting and watching the boat show go up. This has been interesting watching them put it together - all the docks with power lines, water lines going up, boats coming in, people all over the place setting up booths, etc... This is definitely a planning/organizing intensive operation. It's amazing to watch it come together slowly and amazing to think of how quickly it comes back down for the power boat show, then torn down again completely.

After laundry we walked into town & went to ACME for lunch, CVS (we need to go again with Wayne's script tomorrow to change it back to them), then back to the grocery store (this time I got eggs and brought them with me!!!), to Rite-Aid next store for beer (Yuengling), back to the Navy bus to downtown Annapolis again, a walk to the dingy and home again home again jiggity jig. J

We hooked up the t.v. and can now tune in a couple channels so we can catch up on some news. We heard that the Dow went below 10,000 the day before yesterday and was near 9000 (?) yesterday - yikes.

There's a huge mega yacht that's been dancing around in the mooring area Silver Seas about a 90 foot beast that I've no idea why he came under the bridge specially at rush hour because they won't open the bridge again until 6:00pm and his revving up his engines to go forward/backward is really churning up the water here. Incoming call brb...

Laura from Disney - they're having fun with the kids there LOL I can imagine Greg with the fast track pass - I'd be racing from ride to ride too! Awww how fun...

Okay - antenna is up and world news on the BBC! We can watch the news while the generator is running - looks like the Dow closed at 9200 today and other world economies are shakey too. Wow...
