Slipknot-EXECUTE It appears that we have reached the Edge, that zenith where stimuli and comatose collide. Forty years ago, THE MAN proclaimed the Age of the Gross to be upon us, and even though THE MAN was destroying our heritage and insulting our intelligence, that era has become very real. We labor for pleasure and abhor the guilt of pressure. My generation will go down as the architects of contemporary disgust. Some have fought and died. Others have allowed the strong to be butchered for a price they themselves don’t care about and will never understand. I myself am beleaguered by the selfish face of a kind of man that is NOT MANKIND. Distrust in information. Fundamentalism of opinion. Catastrophic boredom, and a fanatical devotion to that which DOES NOT MATTER. Where is your glory now, people? Where are your gods and politicians? Where is your shame and salvation? You Rage For No Reason Because You Have No Reason. WHAT HAVE YOU EVER FOUGHT FOR? WHAT HAVE YOU EVER BLED FOR? THE FACE OF THE EARTH IS SCARRED WITH THE WALKING DEAD. THE AGE OF THE GROSS IS A LIVING VIRUS. THIS IS THE FUTURE YOU HAVE CREATED. THIS IS THE WORLD YOU HAVE SET ABLAZE. ALL YOUR LIES ARE COMING TRUE. ALL FREEDOM IS LOST. ALL HOPE IS GONE.

Watch out for the Manatees, they’re everywhere.

Son Dylan, Key Largo

Another Sailboat-Oday 19

It was driving us crazy to be on this island called Key Largo, literally surrounded by water, and not have our own means to be out on it. Dylan works at Key Lime Sailing Club, and when he came home to tell us that Paul (owner) was selling a few boats, we had to check them out.

We picked out an Oday 19 that was mostly complete and when Paul told us to take her and pay later how could we refuse?! We spent about 8 hours one Sunday cleaning and retro-fitting a rudder and towed her home.  Hope to splash her sometime next weekend and see how she floats. Need safety equiptment, new running rigging (lines that raise/control sails), replace the compass, and a bit more cleaning. A small motor would be nice but till then April has some new fins. 🙂

Here she is sitting at the apartment:

April and I agree the name will change, w/ proper ceremony of coarse, but have yet to decide to what.
