    "On the Hard" because I hardly ever sail anymore. I'm like that old Cal 29 that has been sitting on jack stands for the last 4 years in the back of the boat yard.

  1. Dan passed in 2008. He was a rare bird. He was so successful in print media that they put him on TV. All the beautiful people anchors and old, craggy Dan. But he knew his shit. He was the one who came up with "The opera ain't over til the fat lady sings", said about baseball. He was one of a kind...
  2. Been a long time since you've lived here amigo. Things change. Fiesta is enjoyed by many and is a fully inclusive celebration. Not every party mind you, but still enjoyed by folks of every race. Also, it celebrates Texas Independence, not Cinco de Mayo. Love ya' Brother!
  3. Good on Ya'! Nanny Nellie needs to be more considerate!
  4. King Richard Will Smith plays the father of Venus and Serena Williams Certainly from his perspective. I'd be curious to know what they think of it, but enjoyable. 4 Snags I'm sure some moments were Hollywoodized, but I'm also sure there was a lot of it that was true. I enjoy tennis and have always been a fan of Venus especially. Long odds of anyone else ever being able to pull this off. Rare mix of athletic talent and mental toughness in both of them.
  5. Thanks for the post, Ed. This week especially it is an important reminder to cherish my friends that I'm still fortunate enough to have, and my family. I hope your physical stuff gets better, but I know some stuff is hard to reverse.
  6. BZ? All I could find on the webs was Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction?
  7. Start with an ASA learn to sail, then bareboat certification. If you get through that you will may be qualified to start thinking about coastal cruising. To quote me from another thread, if I found a well sorted Ranger 33 I would buy it. Good boat, cheap, manageable size. You can sell if you really want to pursue the offshore dream a year from now.
  8. CL I love your optimism and your sense of gratitude. Rare characteristics these days. Let me know if you are ever back this way (Still waiting to return your hospitality!)
  9. I took an ASA class before doing a charter a couple of years ago. Got this in my email newsletter Really cool to read about a new sailor taking safety so seriously! https://asa.com/news/2021/11/02/sailor-saves-woman/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2021_11_Enewsletter
  10. I've always had a thing for a Ranger 33. Ever since trying to keep up with one in a Cal 29 (not going to happen, ever) That one looks to be well kept although the interior pictures not being posted gives one pause. If it was for sale on the Texas coast, I'd be seriously interested.
  11. Now THIS is the kind of shit I come here for! Take the rest to PA please!
  12. Had some of last year's gumbo as an appetizer last night. Simply delicious!
  13. Your son is doing it right! I wish I had....
