Friday... 29 NOV 2019 - Day AFTER Thanksgiving -- St. Marys GA
TGIF... Black Friday... Thanksgiving day celebrations were a great success here at St. Marys GA... We attended the celebrations with other cruisers at the old hotel (Seagle's Saloon)... albeit there were less people there than ever before.... More than 50% were Wally Moran's folks (on the Rally to the Sun)...The other big percentage was from our boat yard at Rocky's...
SO........... the food and the comradery were good.... The day went well.... BIG meal even followed by a small NAP in the PM.... And then we watched the BILLs BEAT the Dallas cowboys.... What a thrill to have that happen (at DALLAS).... Wow...
The Bills looked really SOLID..... very few mistakes... moving the ball well... and with purpose.... Wow... QB ALLEN.... Seemed very GOOD !!!!
OUR 'sweet potato casserole' with marshmallows on top (browned in the oven / broiler)... was consumed to the last spoonful.... Others must have liked it as much as I did..... YUMMMM
AND.... Our oven and broiler worked perfectly..... SURPRISE !!! Obviously we don't use it that much.... (when in the islands... heats up the boat too much.... BUT now that I know how well it works, I may look for some receipes that need it.... Especially in some of these cold mornings...
SURPRISE... again this AM...while making breakfast....we ran out of propane on the PORT Tank (20#)...
Talk about timing .... Started using that tank 9/11/2019 at HON... WOW... our average is 75 days per 20# tank.... This tank was 78 days.... To Empty.... FUNNY the things that cruisers keep track of...
75 days for propane... 1 month for coffee can.... Etc.
SO...................... Today may be propane day, as well as St. Marys Yacht club cocktail party...
Projects... I've finished with the waxing, and gelcoat stuff outside... NOW comes all the INSIDE projects... Mostly Mechanical stuff.... And one BIG electrical project... (new HOUSE batteries)... and one small electrical VHF Radio at nav sta... (needs new power feed from Breaker panel).
MORE Later...
