My gas station attendant

I went into the gas station to get a big slushie and newspaper. The guy behind the counter was on the phone waiting on the 3 customers in front of me maintaining absolutely total non-eye contact disdain for interrupting him. When he handed me my receipt to sign, again, no eye contact & severely engrossed in his non-English ranting conversation in his virtual world, I started asking him questions if he was sure the amount was right. Then, I asked how much would it cost for a lottery ticket and how fresh were the pickled eggs. I think it was the first time someone flipped me off in another language with their eyes.

Lisa sailing in Tampa

We had little wind after about an hour and spun around a bit. We fired up the iron genny to compensate. Lisa did a nice job in hosing off the bird stains from the boat.

Another movie

I'm loving these block quotes in blogger.

Going Sailing tomorrow

Hoping we don't have to deal with the traffic too much for the Bucs game. Have to drive right by the stadium. Should be a good day of sailing. Note to self - get fuel.

waiting at airport for Lisa to show up

She just called and said they were leaving. That was 25 minutes ago.

Just a clarification - we met at the airport for lunch and I was waiting in their little cafeteria and this plane was parked outside. No, Lisa wasn't on this plane.
