Last night in country...

Pretty much sucks.  Even the last day, I get irritable, and annoyed with everything.  Stiff and sore and stressed out, basically not liking life.  Went to the chiropractor (my buddy:) and the relief lasted about 10 minutes as the stress creeped back up my neck.  Hate the thought of leaving everyone behind as I leave for 6 weeks on the rusty tub.

We did have Chinese for dinner.  We did see Mr. Bud and the boys and at least myself, LP and PW spent most of the day together.  I even went in and priced tools in the pawn shop. (40 bucks for a Makita grinder/cutter was tempting).  It's one of those one hand type if you're interested Mr. Bud.  At least I remembered to call you about the Wileys jeep and the cement at the Houstons...

Today, I got hit by a semi truck while downtown.  Tough guy that I am, I survived the blow by not being in my truck when the idiot clipped my rear view mirror on the driver's side.  The mirror was already broken by PQ when she let my truck roll off a cliff in the back yard.  You can ask her if you're curious...   Anyway, I told him it was already broke and that he could pay half since he made it completely inoperable.  After the cliff, I screwed it back into the base and it was actually still a functioning mirror, sort of.

I guess that's about it.  I'm out of steam and in a shitty mood.  Gotta pack.  Oh yeah, Rita reminds me that I LOVE books. I love to read them, feel them, smell them, sleep, eat, crap, walk, and even drive with them (pulled over, but never convicted of reading while driving).  Yesterday and today I ransacked the house and FOUR bookstores to complete 3 series of books to take to the boat.  All of them over 10 years old and read about 15 times, each.  Nothing like a good book.  No matter how many times you've read it.  Rita's book is built and almost out.  It's a mommy book, but I think it has at least one essay by a DAD, so technically it's a parent book:)  Given her writing and her love of writing and all things bookish, plus the list of contributors (whoa) you might just want to pick that puppy up.  Go check it out.

So, I'm off to drink wine, pack and read LP to sleep, one last time.  See you on the other side.

Peace

Good luck on your trip. We were at the sailboat store yesterday, buying lines for Puffer and wishing we had $72k for the 27-foot boat. :)
