Sailing seems to help

Had a good sail with Gabe yesterday -- and the usual LAMI setup of captain, three live-aboard crew, a couple of other volunteers, and a classfull of middle-school kids. Can't point to anything in particular as being memorable, other than furling sails with Billy. Two big guys should *not* be on the same footwire; we spend most of our time arranging our footing so as to not inadvertently launch each other over the yard and into the drink eighty feet below. Time with Gabe was good.

And now, though he's still here, he's also still asleep. I can get started on writing "Spinach" again.

IM not working today

Actually, hasn't been working under XP for a couple of days. I'll be rebooting into Ubuntu later to see if that works better. If you've been trying to IM me, leave a note here and I'll get back to you.
