Summer I guess?

With the february wind we’ve had here most of the last week, the only things to tell you its summer on the harbor are the idiots in sailboats and the warm sun. In fact the idiots of all kinds in sailboats, center consoles, jet skis, have really come in out in fine fashion this year. Hopefully not a sign of a boating season of suicidal ascot wearing types to come. We’ve been working steadily, though not overly busy. Fairly typical for this time of year, and it definitely helps get the seasons painting done. I’ve also managed some time behind the camera as usual, even catching Moran’s new tractor the Jonathan C Moran, among others. I’m in day 15 of my hitch, picking up a few extra days on the other rotation as my relief is currently out of action. My Therapist Wife and I have a fence to build, some lawn tools to buy, and various other home improvements on the docket. So adding some extra coins to the coffers will help make all of that happen.

I hope you are ready for a couple pictures, this is about a months backlog that I am posting. Don’t hurt yourselves!


To answer both of the coming questions, Yes I love the new Moran tractors, and no the Houma hasn’t been following me the last few months.
