On the boat ride to Vietnam, I had a copy of Michener's Hawaii. I don't even know how long it took to finish that book but between the book and learning to play Cribbage, I managed to make that boat ride one that I could endure. During that trip, I discovered that there was an Oceanographer on board and he was mapping the sea bed as we went west. It was kind of fun to watch for small sections at a time but in the long haul it all looked like the same to me.
Here lately I find that I have enjoyed WEB Griffin's Books as well as Clive Cussler's work. I do find that after a while the man hero does wear a little thin and always being on the winning side is somewhat trite. Not everyone is tall, slim handsome and gets the right girl. I guess a little fantasy is good for the soul.
Many of the people near here got rained out when they needed to mow and now are so inundated with tall grass that a herd of goats wouldn't save them. I may have to fire up the tractor and make a dash to Dave's to bail him out. (get it? Bail him out) The real problem with that is that Barb has me on a restricted action plan until my body settles in with the Xerelto (Blood Thinner) Right now I am on the 15mg of two pills a day and am about a week away from the 20mg once a day dose. Perhaps then I might get released from the restrictive program.

I am amazed that I didn't get feedback from yesterday's story. It was kind of long but I thought the wait was worth the laugh. I guess not.
Moving on, there just has to be something I can do...
