    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Round #2 of pics: There's little Phoenix, safe and sound back under the couch... thank goodness I managed to coax her back indoors before she got picked off by those miserable coyotes, this country is hard on small domestic animals. She's a shy creature, but she's beginning to...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Nothin' like a hammock for relaxation under a clear blue sky, LOL. Hey, I went to some redneck music festival and made some new friends, wasn't ever a large crowd but the music was great, while the sunset & moonrise were primo. My Canon cam didn't do justice to the evening sky, maybe I should've...

    Not sure what to do with my 1967 sunfish

    I bought my Minifish off C/L for $200... sunk the same amount into her restoration and she gave me years of faithful service, so C/L isn't all bad, ya just gotta deal with the wackos, e-hookers, flakes, etc. :eek:

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Ah, another glorious day in the 'hood, with temps forecast in the 70s... thinking of going climbing this weekend, been awhile since I've been on the crags but I still have a quarter century or more of experience behind me. The real question is whether these permanent injuries will hold me...

    Not sure what to do with my 1967 sunfish

    A noble gesture, donating the boat, but certainly to a worthy cause... unless you need or want the money, in which case there's always Craigslist, downside there is ya hafta deal with all the Craigslist Flakes, LOL. :eek:

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Gonna buy another dirt bike for recons and better access on the west side of Cochise Stronghold... there's a dirt (Forest Service) road that runs along the base of the Dragoon Mountains, and a dirt bike would keep my car from getting thrashed on that rocky road, LOL. Even a pit bike or mini...

    Mystery boat?

    That Serial #36 might be the hull production number, discounting prototypes... but the year is a stumper, since the boat is NOT one of the old Capri 14s made by another boat builder. A computer error at the DMV, perhaps? I remember sailing the old Capri 14s out of Fiddler's Cove and the SDNSC...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Tiger lounging in a chair: Looks rather comfortable, doesn't he? Chair's a bit thrashed, I let the cats sharpen their claws on it... bought the chair for $15 at some thrift shop in Show Low, AZ, so no worries. When the kittehs sharpen their claws on my $1100 leather reclining sofa, THAT...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    I had a small collection of drawings from the Middle East, so I decided to hang some of 'em in my home. I put the camels over the gas range... if the unthinkable happens and I burn my signature lasagna in the oven, my friends and I can BBQ those camels instead, LOL. Probably use NAPALM for the...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Knocked out *most* of the kitchen painting over the past few days, still have to widen the window sills for the kittehs and paint two small trim strips... that'll get done today after I have a cold beer. :rolleyes: Here's the not-quite-completed kitchen, I also have to install the clear panels...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    This library also has some plane models, but they hang so high that the only way to get a close-up would be to stand on a chair or table, LOL... :confused: That last shot shows some cool astronaut patches, perhaps donated by somebody involved in the space program, or somebody retired from the...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    The youngsters I rescued to fill the void have begun to stray from under the couch, I've seen Tiger & Phoenix exploring the other rooms, with Tiger doing most of the exploration. That crazy little cat is a tremendous leaper & climber, on more than one occasion he has sailed across my vision as...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Funny how things work out... even here in the high desert, upon a shelf in the Benson Public Library, this lifelong sailor finds ship models to remind me of voyages made in the past: Got a matching set of totems above the huge DVD collection as well, the library in this little burg is...

    Another round: That's a prickly pear cactus flower, also in my yard... looks almost like a rose, me dear departed mum would've liked it, she was always a green thumb gardener, 10-4? Some more decor shots back toward my room or in my room, gotta have my wall decor, it's the only real...

    Been busy, trying to keep my mind off Sage's absence... here are some recent pics, including shots of last night's sunset: There's Crackhead saying, "DUDE, WHEN'S THE BBQ???" ;) Dunno what kind of plant that is in the last pics, but it looks pretty cool in my yard... :rolleyes:

    Here's a closer view of that galleon: I put up the Cremona Stradivarius poster in honor of me dear departed mum, she played violin for Tommy Dorsey back in the day... and there's a story behind that old photo you see in the third pic, it was taken aboard a Finnish steamer back when...

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    I added some lizards to the kitchen island, they look cool on the columns, LOL. They fit perfectly too, which is how I'm doing this decor number: if something fits, then THAT is where it goes, aye? Same way the mermaids are now over my wet bar, they fit nicely in that wall space: I...
