I was told once (or read it somewhere) that if you haven’t something good/nice to say, it’s better not to say anything…! But then you all would think that I have……… (fill in the blanks.)
I don’t want it to be cold and rainy and to have to wear socks. I hate washing them, hanging them, sorting them and folding them. Then again, when my tootsies are cold, socks are a blessing. I looking for a moral to this story, just don’t hold yer breath!
Well, usually my mornings on ol’ Zoot, before going to work look like this…
Yesterday, Sunday, it looked like this…
I guess the past week wasn’t all that bad. I was in on Wednesday (did the usual G.S. dinner and Kosta hangout), Friday I took Ms G.S., Vicky, for a souvlaki dinner, Saturday did the dinghy bottom and inwater mooring inspection, actually a nice day. A friend was supposed to come, no call no show (Isavella, yer in BIG trouble!), so I went out to lunch, came back and took a nap and had dinner at the usual. Just yesterday did something to me. I guess summer is really over, sniff sniff. Sock times again.
All is not all blue, then again, it would be hard to convince you the other. Got some blue sailing boots so I don’t have to get my feet wet getting to the dinghy mooring and … get my feet wet if I don’t want to (hmmm, I got issues), and also 22meters of blue 14mm genoa sheets (ropes… they were out of green). If your following, you’d know one snapped last week whilst sailing with Mom. A perfect “Zoot Allures” occurrence! A wiki quote: “Zoot Allures is a 1976 rock album by Frank Zappa. …….. The title is a pun on the French expression “Zut alors!” which, though it has no direct translation, conveys mild surprise and may be approximated by “Damn it!”” I think my exclamation was mildly more colorful!
On the brighter side… Zoot Allures has a sister called Aphrodite!!! She is in Northumberland (England?) and Sue, her “mistress” has come aboard this blog and is (hopefully) going to fill in all my “blanks”! Poor Sue!
Stay tuned… for what ever reason you find necessary
ps… I feel a) sooooo guilty abandoning ol’ Zoot on a crummy day, and b) so “blah” being at work. Must be some male hormonal thingie
pss… music helps. I’m a sucker for great audible nuances and timbres
a) turn it up loud!
b) no, I don’t want to be a woman!
