Well the lights across the masts have been up at least a half dozen times. I have replaced 2 of the 4 strings. Now some how I have ½ of 1 string that is flashing. Looks stupid. I will find and replace the flashing bulb as soon as I finish this.

Tomorrow we find out how Mary’s arm is healing. I hope well. Even with the arm jacked out about 45 degrees. She has managed to get out some of the decorations. Both trees are up. But she only has 5 ornaments on hers. The decorations will be somewhat muted this year. She usually has lots of ribbons on thing. I can tie the ribbon on, but my bow would never meet her specs. Therefore, no ribbons.

Getting sleep is the hard part of the arm being boosted out at an angle. She move around. I have not sleep in the same place twice. Last night the wind came up around 3:30 a.m. The radar reflector started making all kinds of noise. That also will get taken care as soon as I finish this.

Sailing. Believe it or not, the tide has been up so far and we could have gotten out the last 2 weekends. But it is really hard to generate any enthusiasm from the mate. We have been busy putting up decorations anyway.

Racing. It is that time of the year to celebrate Christmas. The car is getting a rebuilt transmission. The last time out the tranny was acting strange. That is because it was about ready to self destruct. Winterfest is in February and we will be there, ready to go.
