Download Day ..........all day !

I did a night time raid on the Camelot Saturday night for dinner. Was a cold ride out and back but as always it was a great time on the boat.
Dinner On The Camelot


Yesterday I spent the whole day downloading one program. Yep, ALL DAY, one program. Eight hours I sat a watched the progress bar as it downloaded. I had to stay off the computer because I didn't want to slow it down or loose the connection. I have to admit I am really impressed with this laptops ability to stay connected. It never lost connection one single time all day. For wireless connection where I am that is impressive indeed.
The program was Photoshop CS5.5, The Master Collection. To see it finish and actually load a photo and everything worked great was a happy moment. I can't wait to play around in the new Photoshop. But today is a work day.

Anyway, finally back on line with better tools and glad to have it all done.

I had to have little fun with the old laptop before in hit the trash pile. The fan was clogged up bad and there were heat marks on most of the components. It was way past it's normal life expectancy. :)

The Closets On Solomon Street

My new project. Yeah, working back out at Tequila's Place. But hey, Tybee is cool. :)
I actually started this project a few weeks ago and then we both had other obligations and to a break for a few weeks. Now I am back on it. I dont think that I posted photos of closet number one. But I will. This is closet number two on the rebuild list. And it was the one in the worse shape. The poles had actually pulled off the walls at some point and been repaired. And very shitty repairs if I man say so myself.
So Tony (aka Tequila) wanted to make all the closets bullet proof and yet keep in the deep cherry wood color and with a nice wood look through out the house.
This is the product of that vision.

My Toshiba Woes or "Banana Pudding"

Update to the worries of the the webmaster. So far the machine is still running. It has not shut down and the fan power compared to the generated processor heat is ideal. That is a major deal at this point.
Yesterday I did manage to reinstall the BIOS file and was asked to restart. I declined.
I also reinstalled the Toshiba Power Module and again declined the restart.
The problem is that it will shut down but something that tells the machine to reboot has been lost. It just stalls at that point. Then if I fuck with it for hours and get pissed all of a sudden it starts up.
It is so fucking weird. And in the same sense it is so cool that it is even co-operating that well.
But in the back of my mind I know what it is, the freakin hard drive. I know that clicking feel that actually shakes the laptop when it happens, the hard drive. :)

My plan is to keep it running until the replacement machine arrives. Maybe at that point I can link to the Windows 7 brain and just transfer everything important. Surely they got that crap down in the programing by now. Hey, I haven't bought a computer in over ten years. It's all greek to me. :O

Any ways.........that is all I know about that. :O

Oh !!!!! You want to see the replacement "Machine"? Yeah I am a pain freak. :) Here it is Click Here and that is where I am buying it, from Wally World.

Was tired of trying to find the replacement canister and modifying it like I did with this one. See Ya !!!!

Just finished washing the deck down. Yes it looks good. Had the idea of this photo after I saw the bananas sitting on the counter today. I haven't had a banana pudding in so long. :O Now I got a Jones. Going surfing later to figure out the fix. :)

A Message To A Punk Thief or This Flag Will Always Fly

Yep, it happened again. Some low life punk decided that they needed the the flag and the pole that was at "An Especially Beautiful Hammock". Who ever it was should not be allowed to walk around in public with grown folks.
But who ever let you out little person just know this: You are now and will always remain a fucking punk. And the flag flies now and always will. So be careful dumb punk or one day it may just happen like Jack Nicholson said in the movie, someone may just "rip your head off and shit down your neck".

And like I have said before, people like you don't deserve to step foot on the Hammock. And one day you will get caught, thats when the real fun will begin.

Critical Mass and I Ain't Joking !!!

Let me just cut right through the chase and just say this, .....my computer is in a very serious state. So much so that I have disabled the Microsoft Automatic Updates and any other software that will restart my computer without my permission.
It took me hours to get this ......old friend to boot up. And I'll tell you now, this computer isn't shutting down again until it is replaced or it lights up in a ball of fire. Fuck it !!!!

Ok, not fucking talking about it anymore. Replacement Computer.........in route.
Damn, the hell you go through to be a webmaster. LOL :)


Ok, going to try to get some of the many photos I have posted. One that really caught my eye is what I am referring to as "The Ghost Lizard". It is really pretty cool. I use to have the big lizard on the main sail. It was a stick on lizard that I made. It has been a memory for a while. I was looking at this photo and saw that it had what I thought was rust spots. Then as I looked closer it turned out to be the sticky stuff from the Lizard that was still on the sail. Only it had yellowed. So if you look close you can see the lizard ........The Ghost Lizard. :)

Ok, kinda bumming now. The "machine", which has had many of names in the past 10 years, is going down. Even now it hangs on. :)
I have all kinds of crazy icons on my task bars that I have never seen. My power level icon is gone, my photoshop cs2 icon is gone, and it is really responding badly. I also have felt this clicking sound real clearly in the hard drive and that ain't good. The last time I heard that it was mailed to Kentucky for a new hard drive.
Not again. This is not cool.


Cheers !!!!!

Crashing Hard or The Weekends Sail

I hate to say it but this could very well be my last post for a while. I hope not, but possible.
I was in the process of editing some photos in Photoshop last night and my laptop began to craw really slow. I knew I had a major problem because I had seen this machine lock up before. I tried to take evasive action by running a few performance programs and then restarting the machine. Thats when all hell broke loose or you could say the system crashed and really hard. I ended up having to unplug, unpower and insert the boot disc. Finally after about 30 minutes it rebooted in a black and white critical error screen. I rushed to get all my photos and document files backed up to the external and then did a complete system restore and let it shut the system down itself. Thats when I thought my old Toshiba friend of over a decade had passed away. The computer did nothing for almost two hours. I had actually given up and was laid back watching the news when all of a sudden I got a prompt for my password. I was shocked.
It booted after that and has processed every action flawlessly. But as you may guess I now have a fear of shutting the machine down. So time will only tell. I still have no clue what happened.

So if you suddenly see an absence of these blog post you may want to jump up and down in joy knowing my machine has died. Others will know that it will be only a short absence. LOL :)


The new anchor rollers worked beautifully this past weekend. It is such a joy not to have to dread pulling the anchor up any more.

Marlay Made The 61 Yard Line & I Was There :)

This is why I love my camera......my little D-80, in low light conditions if your really serious about the photo it will co-operate. In this particular photo Captain Steve Marlay was getting over a hangover really fast. :) HE, HE, HE
This was the Captains Birthday Party/ Oyster Roast/ Pub Crawl / Slow Ride.

I have stories of missing flags on "An Especially Beautiful Hammock" and I have photos and videos for days. But today it is still all about Capitan Marlay. :) Happy belated Birthday Again My Brother. :)

Big News ! and Setting Sail

Yes kids this is a big news day. :) Exactly two years to the day after LOOKING DEATH IN THE FACE (click here to read the story) i ordered the replacement camera for the one that got drowned in the drink. Today, after waiting on pins and needles for three days I have it in hand, battery charged and now I am ready to sail. It has been a long awaited day for me. Being without my Nikon D-80 has been like a piece of me missing. If I have to explain it further you wouldn't freaking understand anyway so I wont waste Internet space. Just know this, I am one happy pirate today. :)

This is photo number one taken on the new camera. And yes it is a factory demo, factory refurbished and to me that is as new as you can get for a Nikon D-80 because it was released many years ago and no longer for sell new.
Many more photos to come and if you know me you know that to be TRUE !!!!
First Photo with The New D-80


IMG_7251-e


Yes kids I am shoving off in just a couple of hours, as soon as the tide changes. I was going to leave yesterday but UPS screwed me on my "second day air" package. Now they have to pay it back. :)
So this is going to be the last post for a while as I refuse to be tied to a fucking smart phone, after all it's just like "Facebook", a total waste of fucking time. If I wanted to play with technology every minute of every day I would be dead, as that is no fucking life. Period!

Going to try out this new little Coleman propane space heater the next couple of days. Mainly just when I wake up and am waiting on my coffee. :) Will let you know how it works.

In the early morning rush of events like laundry and such I realized I had to paint the cockpit today. The temps are suppose to get into the 40's tonight and barely make 70 degrees tomorrow. And those temps are to continue for days and days. So painting on the hook didn't jibe. :)
As is typical when I have these surges of energy and purpose I added more chores like installing the new old swim ladder that was gifted to me by Captain Marlay.
I also touched up any blemishes on the white paint on the deck.
And, I indeed did start the motor this morning. :) What a beautiful thing to hear it run and pass thru the gears peacefully. Can I get a whoop whoop !!!!!! :)

An Open Letter To Herman Cain

Mr. Cain.
I don't know how it escapes you and your management staff but I wish to input my 2 lousy cents here.

999

That sounds really cool and I totally agree with it. My question to you Mr. Man with the plan is why did the bottom fall out on your defense of the plan. You are being jabbed up in the corners by the liberal media. Man they are taking some belly shots at 999 that I feel you may not know how to defend yourself against.

This is where I step in to guide you my brother.
Your advisories tend to want to say "what happens in ten years when it's 20 20 20 ????
Great question liberal left.
Mr. Cain's next move after the tax reform is implemented it to push for a constitutional amendment that would require ratification by all the states before the tax code could be raised again.

I know you got the for sight to see I am right.

My vote is for Herman Cain.

Best Wishes, Butch

Prepping For Sail or Bring On The Chill

Foggy Morning Sunrise


Ok, got the Lasagna in the oven and toddy in hand. A great end to a peaceful and relaxing day on the boat. Actually was a fruitful day also.
Drug myself out after a nice bacon, egg and grits breakfast and casted for shrimp. Got to have some bait when I get out to the hammock. Fishing is "SOP" on any trip there. :) Got enough shrimp in about a half dozen cast. The waters are loaded with shrimp.
Woke up dreading the fact that I had to dive the boat. I need to stop getting so hyped about that. The dive was actually really nice. The water is very clear. I actually didn't have any berrys on the hull this time just a lot of small barnacles. This boat has got to be hauled out and have damage control done soon. It has moved it's way to the top of the Anole "Honey Do" list. It has been way too long.


Almost Time To Do Some Cast Netting


I finished caulking all the rest of the port lights today along with some other deck hardware. Now all I have left on the yearly caulking is the underside of the rail where the hull and deck join. That is a major event. Lots of time and cussing involved. And about three tubes of 4200 or $45.00 for you folks in effingham county. So that is going to pass till a better day.

Was going to paint the cockpit today but rain was forecast and to be quit honest.......I really just didn't feel like screwing with it. I think I am going to do that when I'm out on the hook soon. Will let you know how it works out. LOL :)

Also dug out the winter clothes and space heaters. Cleaned and organized the boat for sail. Busy at a mellow pace.
Tomorrow am the first thing on the agenda is to start the motor for the first time in about six or so weeks. I have full faith and confidence in the S/Y Anole. :)

Mirabella 5 or "The House" or Let's Sail Some Boat

mirabella v 5 five, sailboat, worlds tallest sloop, savannah, ga, butch petty,.jpg


For any of you local people that travel over the Thunderbolt Bridge at the ICW and call your self sailors in any form or fashion then you have seen the near 300 foot mast that is towering into the sky. It is somewhat of an honor for us folks that have sailboats in our blood to have the worlds tallest single mast sailboat, aka sloop, in the world in Savannah. Just a totally freaking awesome vessel. But hey, it only cost 90 million dollars. No problem. LMFAO :)

But a very sweet vessel she is. Under sail she pushes almost 20 knots. Awesome. Thats cutting some waves very quickly. Wow !!!!! Unfortunately she is not viewable to us common folk. So my only visuals are what are to be found here, in your friendly cyber neighborhood. :)

Enjoy


Finished the "house" today. Actually went pretty smooth. I love it when that happens. Makes life a little more pleasant always. I actually did have one little "over spray" mistake that just somehow got past me that I had to correct. Other than that ........Smooth. :) The take-away from this job is that both I and the owner are happy. That is the most important part of the whole deal. Cheers !

Don't really feel like chatting it up tonight. Just been hanging out with my old friend "Ben". I love that guy. He is one one old salt. He is a cleaver bastard too. If the shade is on the starboard side that is where he's at. :) Sly bastard. I just hate it some times how he hogs the shade. The bastard! :)
And when we find a very cool island and go to explore he is always the first one on the beach.....the bastard! :)
He has all the cool bitches too. Hey, his pet owns a veterinary clinics. :) Ben, this dude has it all man. When I grow up I want to be like "Ben". LOL :)

Today In Politics

Man.....there I was just sucking on my toddy and listening to theSean Hannity show. I was listening to a caller that was just pumping Sean for his personal pick for the Republican candidate. Sean was saying how he had to keep an open mind. And the caller, a lady named "Georgia" to Sean, and I quote: "Don't have so much of a open mind that your brain falls out". That just rocked my world and Sean Hannity''s also.
Keep in mind people......get all the evidence. Look at all the facts. Look at how the person has voted. What has the person done? Keep an open mind......but just not "so much of an open mind that your brain falls out."

Thank you "Georgia" and Keep fighting the hard fight !!!!

Hmmmm.......I did Boat things or Cockpit Colors or What a Beautiful Day :)

These two pieces of evidence were collected on the scene yesterday. My question to you is: "Where were you??"


Yesterday's Memories - 2

Yesterday's Memories


Was really jonesing yesterday. Wanted to go out and just paint something! :) The weather held me back.
Today I sprayed the house and the garage and it only took 7 hours. (What? Don't know about the "house"??? Go to the back of the class. Get your favorite media anchor and start reading all my blogs backwards to the very end. When you get done report to class with a 500 word essay summarizing your visit.)
Came to the boat and had to paint some more. Do you know how hard that is? You just painted stuffs and now you have toddy in hand and have to paint more stuffs? :O It's way hard.

Taped and Ready

New Paint Applied


There are lots of things that I would love to do on the Anole. Unfortunately she dictates all maintenance activities. She is a relentless bitch in that respect. I get no respect! :) She has told me that it was time for head work. And I agree. The head has been an issue.
So what I propose to do is change the whole pump assembly. Fuck the damn little kit. Been There Done That!!

The Pump Assembly - Jabsco - 29040-3000

PBS Picks My Candidate? I Don't Fucking Think So

Let me just get this off my chest. I once listened to this punk down in Florida ........I think he calls his self Shmitt......with The Shit Show. Something stupid like that.
I pegged that poser for a democrat plant from way the fuck back. (Read this Blog)
But this guy Romney? PBS or your public television station just loves Romney. So does ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN and all the other government stations. WTF !!!! This is another fucking democrat plant. And if you are so blind that you can not fathom the possibility of this being true? Well this post is not for you.

Just saying.

Calming My Brain or Accumulating Dust

Sailing, sailboat, women, girls, females, sexy, butch petty, blog, hughes, 38, sloop, savannah, ga., georgia, a (5).jpg




Ok kids lets just dive right into it again. Today's topic I mean. :)
Today it is "Accumulators". Remember that word, it is worth nothing. Now you know a worthless word. LOL :)

Some times, not often I do things that bug me. Technical things. On mechanical things I try not to ever take an action on an issue until I am sure in my head that I completely understand all about the issue and am confident that I am making the right decision.
I recently disconnected an "accumulator tank" from a boats fresh water system. From the moment I saw it I hated it. It was totally fucking worthless in my opinion at the time at the present time also. Bare in mind that I look at all things sail in a frugal, self survival level. And this thing to me just didn't warrant the space in the boat.
So after unhooking the culprit. It has bugged me that I may have been wrong. But I had this little guy on my shoulder saying no! You did right.
The motto of this story to all you wannabe frugal sailors: Keep it simple. No BS. Less Headaches. :) Simple.

On the final note: If you need to worry about how many times your freaking water pump cycles........?!?!? Well you just need to put a petcock on that damn water tank and walk a few feet to fill that coffee pot.
Just saying. LMFAO :)

If that is the most of my worries on this boat then I am doing good. :)

I meet a beautiful lady this morning. Doing the Tybee laundry thing. Actually I didn't meet her there. I meet her across the road at the store as I was microwaving my beef burrito at 7:30 in the am. Normally I don't give time of days to strangers of any kind. This stranger wanted to go home and warm up a muffin for me. Eye contact in conversations say lots of things that words do not convey. The eye contact this morning with this lady was way long......and comfortable. Very strange feeling for me .....the Captain. Hey, I got a reputation to uphold. What can I say. LMFAO :)

Full Panic Mode or Let's Paint Some House

Man I awoke into full panic mode this am. All I heard on the local news that really stood out was "Rain". It's going to rain, it's going to rain. The sky is falling! WTF !!!
So I went into full on panic mode. I had three sides of a house ready to paint. Spackling on the bad spots. All new caulk on every crack. Hell no !!! I was not going to be robbed of my last four days of prep work.
One thing that I did very right was as I finished each side I took the time to make it ready to be sprayed. Taped every thing off. The whole works. The only side that I had not finished was the front.
So there I was in full hyper drive - full panic- lets rock and roll mode-hitting the bricks at 6 am mode-it's time to earn some money mode-and I was off.
Wouldn't you know it. The one and only time I had even seen the tenant and she was parked in MY driveway. :O
So I meet her really early today. Very sweet lady and very pretty. Brightened my whole day and gave me that little bit of push I desperately needed.
Spraying at seven am. Done with three sides by noon. Prepping front of house till 2 ish. Done primming whole house by 4:30 pm.
Can I get a "hell yeah !!!!!!" :)

You probably know if you know me that I am knee deep in celebratory drinks at this time. :) Let it fucking rain. :)

Sailing, sailboat, women, girls, females, sexy, butch petty, blog, hughes, 38, sloop, savannah, ga., georgia, a, 1 (15).jpg




Ok, my boat, it always has to have everything she needs, always. There is no compromise ever.........well, I may johnny rig some shit now and then, but for the most part she is my vessel, she contributes to the spirit in most of my smaller vessels ( for those of you in effinfgham that means my mixed drink vessels) She always makes me happy.

Ok I will quit rambling. There are two things you have to really taste before you can have the true sensation of either one. One is the meat of an Anole roasted over an open fire. It taste like chicken. :)

LMFAO

The next thing you have to not think about comparing is Tequila. There is only one. The Gold of Patron.

Painting the House Right or Pumping out Tacos

Sailing, sailboat, women, girls, females, sexy, butch petty, blog, hughes, 38, sloop, savannah, ga., georgia, a, 1 (14).jpg



Let us start with todays work., my new little project in Ardsley Park. Let me just say this, I like this job mainly for one reason. The houses around this project are for the most part really well kept. Some have issues, but none like the issues of this little house. It is a rental property that the owners have entrusted me to make it "pop"! And make it "Pop" I plan to do. When I walk away from this house it will shine. :) That's all the tease you get, just a look and a promise. LOL :)

Tuesday's Ramblings


So there I was aboard the S/V Camelot last night showing the Captain his new fresh water system pump and as I was showing it off, I installed it, I realized that I had to have one for my boat. My boats water pump has been acting like a fucking ruined bitch forever !!!!!
So tonight I installed my new pump also. OhHHHH let me just say this............Just the perfection of operation compared to my old pump is like sex! Hell yeah! I want to know when I hit the sweet spot I am going to have water squirting at me. Simple. Like Sex. :) LOL

Tuesday's Ramblings


So, there I was surfing around Ebay looking for a nice cleat for my for-deck to replace the one that got ripped off in a flurry of action when I ran aground at St. Catherine Sound and I spy these two beautiful cleats. They are solid stainless, polished, 10" long, ........I mean just fucking beautiful. But I don't know if they are going to earn a spot on the fore-deck of the Anole. Unresolved technical issues are pending.
But man are they fucking pretty cleats. :)

Ok, you may have noticed in the picture of the new pump there were the "makings" for home made tacos in the background. You would have been right if you assumed that I was having tacos tonight. However, what you did not see is that I am preparing lots of meals at once. The taco meal will end up being 2-3 meals. And the stuff in the crock pot that is cooking is going to be breakfast for a couple of days also. It is called in my limited Tex-mex, Carna Guissada. It is the absolute friggin best taco in the world. Years and years of two brothers have been spent on this taco. Just because we liked it. LOL :)
