The TV never stops at my dad's house. That makes the peace we find sailing that more valuable. His house isn't big enough to hide from the big screen. I haven't seen this much broadcast TV in years. On the bright side, there's some actual new items being covered. One good thing about the disaster in Japan: it pushed the antics of Charlie Sheen off the air. Now the war in Libya is keeping him off.
We took it easy today. My lovely wife sewed some new ribbons on the sail. I pulled the boat's battery and brought it to my dad's workshop. The little 6 hp motor has an alternator that's supposed to keep the battery charged up. It was a pleasant surprise to see the battery had a full charge. The battery terminals could use a bit of cleaning up, but even that wasn't bad. Isn't it nice when machinery works the way it's supposed to?
Monday, we take the dog to the vet, and we'll pack up for our trip down to the Keys. Internet connection might be hit or miss for a while.
