2016???

C.E. Grundler I’m going to be honest; the last few years have been a bit fuzzy in places, and damned erratic the rest of the time. And now it’s 2016? Already? Where’d the time go? Three words for 2016? Let’s … Continue reading

Battery Powered!

C.E. Grundler I got all wired up and electrified last Wednesday, and thank you all for the helpful encouragement and reassurances. I’m feeling a bit sore and bruised up, with an energy level I don’t think I’ve ever had. I feel … Continue reading

I’m getting a Pacemaker!

Lovely, isn’t she. Unfortunately, I don’t think Blue Cross would consider her a necessary life-saving device, and no, the last thing I need right now is another boat I can’t work on. All the same, when I hear ‘Pacemaker,’ it’s … Continue reading

It ain’t easy being the Duck Manager

C.E. Grundler Yup. Duck Manager. That’s my new title, or at least it was in a typo-filled email addressed to me, but it works all the same. Our basin has it’s share of ducks among the docks, and they spend most … Continue reading

11,000 miles of dead bugs and road dirt…

C.E. Grundler It’s quite impressive. The kids pulled in last night, tired and happy, in a car covered with the traces of our nation’s highways and parks from coast to coast, along with a virtual horror show of splattered insects. There’s … Continue reading

I’m not even supposed to be here today…

C.E. Grundler …but I am. Here, that is, at the marina, herding boats.  We’re averaging around 40 boats a week, though sometimes they all arrive on Friday afternoon. This week, rather than a naval invasion involving dozens of small boats, … Continue reading

A day off…

C.E. Grundler I’m taking the day off from the marina, and I mean truly taking the day off. My co-workers have warned I’m not to come anywhere near the property until tomorrow morning…though that doesn’t mean I don’t have my … Continue reading
