Raindrops and Rainbows

You can take the Mediterranean diet too far, especially with the wine consumption. The noodles are OK if you are burning up the calories, but otherwise they will put on the pounds. So you are left with antipasto, not much else, salad? Chicken Parm? Yes, the chicken parm is probably in itself pretty [...]

Prejudicial Treatment

The excitement of a new baby in the family had me receiving phone calls from all over. The common denominator is that we talked about the weather and food. That makes me hungry and start planning to cook. Cuddily suggested we go to Sysco in Pocomoke to see what wine selection they had there and also [...]

Cap'n Granpa

The Memorial Day weekend was coming up and it is a big deal in Crisfield as well as most of the rest of the Chesapeake. It is the traditional beginning of the summer season. All the boats are launched or commissioned, lots of activity in the marina, motors started up for the first time in a long time, [...]

Cap'n Overboard

The awful jobs get done last. The Atomic Four was waiting for me to pull off the cylinder head, but there was an emergency job, sort of, the mainsail cover was torn and exposing the sail to U/V, very bad.

Happy Mother's Day

I of course had chicken Parmesan for breakfast on sourdough bread. I have still more in the fridge.

Digging In in Crisfield

The frenzied packing of the rental car was done in about 4 hours. I had organized (ha!) what was to be packed, to be trashed, to be carefully stowed previously, so it was just a matter of grunt work. The vehicle was perfect for the job, a Toyota RAV4, midsize SUV with plenty of storage space when you [...]

Superspreader IV

Cap'n Chef Andy | Perfect Weather
These are hard weeks when I have to prepare to go back to my catamaran, Kaimu, in Georgia, near Fernandina. I will miss my friends up here in Crisfield, but hopefully some of the old crowd in the boatyard in Georgia will be there.
.
If you have friends, relatives, children, don’t worry about traveling physically to be with them, they know you, just a good connection via the internet will suffice. Our hearts have been torn by the pandemic, they say depression and anxiety are rampant, I feel it myself. Those of us who are thrown together hunker down and can only do so for so long, we want to shrug it off and resume our former activities, to hell with the pandemic.
.
I am bummed, the umbilical electrical cord that I ordered at a discount from eBay was delivered, and we dropped it into a dock cart and then had wine and cheese steaks at the Legion. It was gone when I returned.
.
It’s not the financial blow of having someone steal your stuff, it’s the awful idea that someone would do that. I ordered another cord. Done. Malcolm, my friend, who was on security duty helped me narrow the time when the theft occurred down to an hour or so the evening before.
.
Eve had given me stuff to take back to my refrigerator, slices of pizza, some toppings, the other night. In the morning I made an omelet. It came out OK, not my usual, but good for camping on a boat.
.
Eve and I are all gas and no brakes. Dangerous machines. I kind of know how things will turn out when I get involved with her. The cocktail hour starts early and dinner is always late. I am OK with some friends coming over, she engineers it. She is breaking down my social boundaries. Eve will buy drinks for those who the state troopers are eyeing for DWI.
.
It’s hard to get a DWI on a bicycle, but maybe it could happen, I’ve skirted the issue. Will I be killed in a vehicle or on a bicycle. Or on a sailboat.
.
Today is Wednesday and it is the annual Crab and Clam Festival which was always held in July, but is postponed to today in October due to the pandemic. The marina is completely full and it holds a lot of cars. Cars are parked outside the marina on all the local streets, on people’s lawns, as far away as the city dock. This would qualify as another superspreader event. September had a surge in covid cases after the festivities of Labor Day and the Hard Crab Derby. Cases had started to fall off and now we are tempting our health fate again. Tickets for today’s event are $60 a head and there must be well over a thousand people here.
.
Someone who knows said there were about 2500 people at the event in the marina.
.
I had ordered a small amount of epoxy hardener from Raka in Florida and they don’t provide tracking numbers unless you ask, so I went to CM’s house to see if it arrived. There was a package there. It was from the same vendor who sold me the electrical cable that was stolen. My, that’s fast delivery, I just ordered it yesterday. I checked the tracking number and it’s the same package that was stolen from the marina. Curiouser and curiouser.

The image was taken today at the Crab and Clam Festival.
