Standing by to stand by

Well still sitting in fourchon loaded up with casing and barite. We’re essentially all dressed up with no where to go. Crew change is in two days so I am hoping we don’t get the “oh gawd we need that shit right meow” phone call. But if we make it through till noon today I would bet at worse we’ll get an early crew change on Tuesday, and that wouldn’t really be worse would it 😉
The weather this last week has been a little miserable though, lots of scattered thunder storms (Louisiana in the summer, I know), so we haven’t gotten nearly as much painting done as the wheelhouse would have liked. I would wager most of the deckhands are far from heart broken!
Just another day in the life, but it’s morning pizza time for me, hello breakfast. I’ll leave you with a shot from another boat standing by, the Liberty Service, one of HOS’s tug and barge units. The photo was taken in the Galveston anchorage a week or so ago, by Mike Dunn MMA 12′

    Galveston, oh Galveston … I used to crew change the ATBs there, in the East Anchorage and Bolivar Roads (which this is, I think). Short, easy runs for me!
