I did bring coffee this morning but already drank half the pot lol
<makes more coffee>
LOL. That happens with coffee. Sometimes, my cup develops a hole in it. Seems like I just pour it, and viola--it's empty. Or it develops legs and walks around the house.

I KNOW I had it in the living room, but where do I find it? Yep, the office. Weird how that happens....

Well the days are going to get shorter now, longer for Ruby of course.
Sundays full moon will be the closest it gets to us this year. Try and stand an egg on end when it's overhead. Works in Ecuador.

No, just most of them....how many fingers in a tropical wave, you ask?

Well, that's a LOT of fingers, if you use 'em to measure tequila...

Well now that is interesting. I figure that the more tequilos, the more fingers you seem to have, so the question there is relative to the dispersion rate in said bottle.
Hence, the more it disappears the more there is.Until it's all been disperseds and you can't see anyway.

had a wee problem with the big johnson out fishing this morning. Couldn
t get past 3/4 throttle. Damn if a cable didn't come undone.
Nothing good to report though. Lost a tripletail I'd have liked to have kept. Got a huge ray I cut the line on.
Still, better than any job.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of flying.
There is and art, it says, or, rather, a knack to flying.
The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
Pick a nice day, it suggests, and try it.
The first part is easy.
All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and the willingness not to mind that it's going to hurt.
That is, it's going to hurt if you fail to miss the ground.
Most people fail to miss the ground, and if they are really trying properly, the likelihood is that they will fail to miss it fairly hard.
Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.
One problem is that you have to miss the ground accidentally. It's no good deliberately intending to miss the ground because you won't. You have to have your attention suddenly distracted by something else when you're halfway there, so that you are no longer thinking about falling, or about the ground, or about how much it's going to hurt if you fail to miss it.
It is notoriously difficult to prize your attention away from these three things during the split second you have at your disposal. Hence most people's failure, and their eventual disillusionment with this exhilarating and spectacular sport.
If, however, you are lucky enough to have your attention momentarily distracted at the crucial moment by, say, a gorgeous pair of legs (tentacles, pseudopodia, according to phyllum and/or personal inclination) or a bomb going off in your vicinity, or by suddenly spotting an extremely rare species of beetle crawling along a nearby twig, then in your astonishment you will miss the ground completely and remain bobbing just a few inches above it in what might seem to be a slightly foolish manner.
This is a moment for superb and delicate concentration.
Bob and float, float and bob.
Ignore all considerations of your own weight and simply let yourself waft higher.
Do not listen to what anybody says to you at this point because they are unlikely to say anything helpful.
They are most likely to say something along the lines of "Good God, you can't possibly be flying!"
It is vitally important not to believe them or they will suddenly be right.
Waft higher and higher.
Try a few swoops, gentle ones at first, then drift above the treetops breathing regularly.
DO NOT WAVE AT ANYBODY.
When you have done this a few times you will find the moment of distraction rapidly becomes easier and easier to achieve.
You will then learn all sorts of things about how to control your flight, your speed, your maneuverability, and the trick usually lies in on not thinking too hard about whatever you do, but just allowing it to happen as if it were going to anyway.
You will also learn about how to land properly, which is something you will almost certainly screw up, and screw up badly, on your first attempt.
There are private flying clubs you can join which help you achieve the all-important moment of distraction. They hire people with surprising bodies or opinions to leap out from behind bushes and exhibit and/or explain them at the critical moments. Few genuine hitchhikers will be able to afford to join these clubs, but some may be able to get temporary employment at them.
