Spiffy Clean or Pig On A Leash

Sometimes you just got to dive for the camera because you just can't believe what your seeing, like a pig on a leash taking a crap in a Walmart parking lot. Only at Walmart. LOL :)
Pig At The Local Walmart

Man so much has happened since I returned to Savannah. And yet not so much. First of all let me just say that 22 days straight of pulling anchor before dawn and dropping it at dawn can take one hell of a toll on a solo sailor and you may not even notice it that much until it is over. Which is what happened to me. It hit me all at once like a ton of bricks. I've slept a lot the last few days. Lots of naps and it was hard to pull my ass out of bed on occasion. I am also was out of shape as a result of way to much time on the boat the past few months. I am slowly getting it back but just a sign of age for sure. :)

Ok I'll quit whining. I did a top to bottom, inside out cleaning of the boat too. Every piece of clothing and linen got washed. Hundreds of pounds of needless stuff came off the boat and went into storage. So much stuff that the boat actually rose four inches up in the water. I can't wait to see how she sails now that she is so lightened up. :) Yes, thinking of sailing local haunts already.

Something that I have not told anyone on this blog that I will tell all tonight. I quit drinking when I was in the keys. What ?!?!?! Yep, about two months ago, after finding myself drinking more than a gallon of whiskey a week I woke up one morning and said "today is the day". I had actually planned it before I left. I knew the best way to do it was to be away from all the people I knew, and on my boat with no temptations. So I went cold turkey after 20+ years of drinking every day. I have fell of the wagon a couple of times, the day I got back was a well deserved one, and a couple of more. I must say that it feels good too. Stressful days I think of it more than others, but for the most part I'm ok with it. Now if I could just kick the smokes.
Along these lines I did my annual doctor visit today and found out my blood pressure was better than last year, so positive signs there. One day at a time.

Now my buddy Capt. Marlay is getting ready to head for the Bahamas and points beyond. I am excited for him as it will be his first big adventure in his own boat, A Morgan Out Island 41. So I will be busy helping him in the next few weeks getting ready to shove off. And after that it is just getting back into the grove of Savannah life for me. :)
