Oy….!

I’ll repeat that some more…. oy oy oy!

Man, I launched Zoot Allures 3 weeks ago and… well, what can I say.

Not much.

First glitch is that I’ve been so busy at work that I get home and zombie out. or I’m running around on a gig,,, eg proofing the audio for a short film or reciting Kafka at the ethnic theatre for some kind of Austrian art thang (don’t ask what that was… it paid for the launch so, yeah, I’m a bitch). I did manage a few boat afternoons though. The weekends were just zoning out. This past weekend was entertaining Alexandra and a new visitor Maria(?!) and mostly sleeping. As of Friday I’m on a 7 week vacation (shutup!… I worked alot of weekends during the winter and saved my days off for now!) and now I can barely stay awake.

My sinking deflatable for local use was real sad and needed inflating twice a day! Found the leak and fixed it. Plus I added another 3cm of Dow insulation to the roof of the fridge. Plus a whole lot of other stuff I can’t remember cause pulling out a camera slips my mind.

We rowed out (cause their dumbass motor wouldn’t start, old gas)  to their fine ship Pyrrha and  got the sails on and generally had a fine time. Another couple of pics… probably from the squall that hit the area. I wasn’t there but It was scary in the city! plus there was a lot of damage in the port.

IMG-20160702-WA0004Nuf said about nothing. Wednesday I’m heading out for a 3 day shakedown with cuz G.S. and Vicky to go visit cuz John 15miles across the south Evian sea. If I don’t post something about it, feel free to unsubscibe! And then (if all goes well and weather permitting), I’m OFF! Where to… who knows… where ever the wind blows. I’ll be aiming for Ikaria…. but that will be another story.

So stay tuned….. and be quiet! I’m still napping like it’s going out of style!

    Seven weeks – nice! I have never managed more than three weeks at a time
    before. You will be seriously chilled (I hope) well before the end of your cruise. Enjoy!

    P.S. Kafka’s cool – no need to be embarrassed 😉

    Enjoy the 3-day shakedown cruise. A good appetizer for your 7 weeks of living it up. Those are awesome photographs at the bottom, looks like a bay on Jupiter.
