Have you considered the possibility that you have fleas in your shoes ? Either that or Tinea.

Perhaps it is time to RIP the doggie duo. Instead, we could talk about the lovely sail I had today. It looked like every J boat ever built was out in the Bay today. Mylar sails shining, kites 'aflying, zooming away, hither, thither and yon. Quite a sight.

Saw one catamaran out there that had a flag so big, we thought it was a mizzen sail. A solo female, manhandling about a 38 footer, with the 150 jenny about an inch off the water. All in all, an excellent afternoon of sailing. Especially after making a bit over $300 at the flea market in the morning.

Went out to swing the compass on the new autopilot and finish the calibration, but it was too nice a day for sailing to motor around in circles.

7 days, if a blizzard don't blow through and strand you there for another week.

That's a Portuguese supersticious saying that means " Gee...turn your mouth the other way....damn"....

Its used to say whatever you are saying...say it in the other direction....like "knocking on wood", but reversed...
