Of course, the upshot to that is that the old blog will be in the 'yards for a day or so. We'll be careening her, maybe replacing some of the standing rigging and aim to make the running rigging a bit more efficient.
Now as you might imagine, this could be a bit of work. As you can see in the preceding picture I have a bunch of oddly clad men going over the basic hull and apparently planting some sort of garden in the background. (You there! Yes, you. Run over there and tell those fellows to cease gardening and get back to work. There's a good chap, run along now.)
As I tinker with blog settings late into the night, I realize I have nothing to post. Other than posts about tinkering with blog settings.
I also made the mistake of giving most of the crew liberty while the blog is in the yard. So I am undermanned and under-motivated. Sigh.
The Missus Herself is still in California so I am permanent SDO, at least until she gets back.
This is getting very tiresome.
But we'll get there.
(Now where is that blog-width adjustment modulator? Thought I left it right here...)
*Why yes, that is an obscure reference. Anyone care to guess?
