Vegan Sushi

I can personally recommend Food Lion's own, cheap, Cocktail Sauce, the Hot & Spicy version, not the Original, which equates with Heinz Original. Guess they are not that original. The hot and spicy version has a nice kick to it. If you had shrimp cocktail at Emeril's, this is the kind of cocktail sauce [...]

The Knight is Crushed

After testing negative for covid I paid my credit card bill that included airfare to Hawaii and recent frivolous expenditures. Maybe this covid scare will keep us out of the expensive places for a bit. I had a very inexpensive lunch snack of ½ lb of frozen jumbo shrimp from Food Lion dipping them [...]

Sail, Lady, Sail

I can’t get onto Sailblogs to see what I wrote last time. It was about the puppies. So, today, I will start anew. Eve texted me about going to Pocomoke and I said yes. I had some things to pick up at Walmart and wanted to exchange the propane tank for the pizza oven. I asked her to pick me up [...]

The Big Bad SNAFU

The puppies were becoming an unruly mob. There are 3 males, one larger and aggressive than the others. They constantly fight with each other in a playful way. The females are mostly smaller, but the yellow lab, female, is equally large and aggressive as the smaller males. These pups are fun to watch, [...]

Flying Puppies

I started a new medication, Flomax, which has some beneficial effects for me, my ankles and feet have intermittent swelling due to effects of one of my blood pressure meds, and Flomax works like a diuretic and reduces edema, shrinks the prostate, can lower blood pressure about 10 points, all good effects. [...]

The two days of thunderstorms, lightning, and showers were ending and I was glad to get out and about. I don’t mind hunkering down below on the boat, but after a while going on a bike ride, not in the rain or getting hit by lightning, can be a liberating experience.
.
The question was, is the Red Shell Shanty going to be open again on a Thursday? I biked down there and there was someone sitting inside. The padlock was off the front door. Yes, they would be open. Cuddily and Eve were returning from another eye appointment, this time Eve was sporting the densely black sunglasses. They went to a bistro on the other side of the marina, the Fisherman’s Grille. I was already into an Orange Crush at the Shanty, but biked over to the Grille and took my position at the outside bar overlooking the entrance to Somers Cove. They showed up and we took a table right on the water. More Crushes. I had oyster stew, which had a lot of iron, Cuddily had steamed shrimp, and Eve had crab egg rolls. All good. We watched the local fishing boats go by. One was casting a lure right near us. It was a nice dinner and I used the last of my Yamaha outboard money to pay for it. Well spent. Spent.
.
On the way back I had another Crush at the Shanty. I was pretty looped. I had the idea that we affect the small universe around us, so others not only see us, they see the effect we are creating. Needless to say, I slept well. The weather has been very mild, almost perfect, except when lightning strikes. The 10 day forecast says more of the same through the end of the month. Yay!
.
The next day I was again pedaling with a sorer hip. I had to go to the grocers to complain about being charged for two Le Bleu waters when I had seen a BOGO sticker on their shelf, should have only been charged for one. I also decided to purchase an iron supplement, no more liver and onions. When I got to the store I went first to the water area and saw the BOGO was Buy 2 Get One, so I grabbed 3 of the waters. My favorite olive oil was on sale, got that, got the iron supplement, got a pack of coffee filters. On my way back I stopped at the Shanty to take a break. I sent a link to notalwaysright.com to my favorite sister who later called me back to say my older brother had had a heart attack and was in hospital in Hilo, Hawaii. I relayed the news.
.
Eve asked if I wanted to attend a Bob fire at her house and have some grilled sausages. Yes, I replied, let’s set fire to Bob. There was also an Arts Council opening event at the gallery near the City Dock, but I didn’t feel like attending that. I went out and got some wine for later. I was sitting alone with my thoughts and listening to 107.3, they were playing the Everly Brothers, Bye Bye Love.
.
I looked up Darla Taylor, the lady that won the mayor’s election in Crisfield. It turns out she is a community activist, participating in several organizations that improve education, housing, and other concerns for the middle class. Her election is a blow against the usual old-boy network of businessmen. It looks like the populace want some healing and help.
.
I sent a photo of a large trimaran that is sitting in the marina at the end of a dock, could never fit in a slip, to my friend Tom. It is 51 feet long and 30 feet wide. It is a Neel 51. Prices are just under a million, and owning one would be equivalent of owning a waterfront townhouse that can change its location in style and luxury. The image is of that very trimaran.
