I earned this in the Bahamas

a few years ago assisting in getting a boat off the reef that lay outside of Farmers Cay.

Well I helped someone on Friday in a tropical downpour and so far no thanks, no T shirt, no bottle of rum, ho hum I guess I will just have to view it as positive karma.

I was on the internet early on Sat as I know some people who were sitting out hurricane Odile

on their boats in Baja Mexico. Zeehag and Bubba the boat cat made it through OK but Pail and his girlfriend are missing and it is not sounding good.

I am amazed that people do take the most elementary of precautions to safeguard their boats, leaving the headsail up is so foolish.

Dizzy is pissed of with me as I have been off the boat a lot the last few days.

I think he wants to come too but has not plucked up the courage to get in the dink when it is in the water.

A final thought for the day, did you know that Arizona has a ' stupid drivers law '?
If you drive into a flood and have to get rescued you owe for the full cost of the rescue.


  1. As Arizona is predominantly desert it takes a particularly unlucky fool to find a flood to get stuck in.

  2. Don't they get monsoon type downpours at this time of the year? Flash floods etc.
