I went back to swimming yesterday---3,000 yards. Quite a workout for the first time back. I am slow though... Then Bill and I went to get lumber for the big project in the barn. I went to put one piece back on the pile and it bit me! I somehow got a large sliver in my thumb. We could not get it out, so I had to go to Urgent Care, where they numbed it and sliced open my thumb to remove it--it was about 5/8" long, in at a sharp (no pun intended) angle. So back on antibiotics again, with stern warnings to watch for infection... I guess this is the year.
Bill, Otis and Fred left today for an overnighter on our boat. It's been planned for a couple of weeks, and the fact that it was in the low 50s with winds gusting up to 25 mph did not stop them. Fortunately the winds were favorable for the direction they were going. It was so windy that they never put the full main up! It was reefed for the whole trip, but they never had to use the motor once they got out past the bridge... now that's what we always plan on a sailing trip, but don't always get to do!
