Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Much Better than Chocolate or Flowers


A super Valentine’s gift

No, Pat didn’t get me any chocolates or flowers or jewelry or a card or anything like that for Valentine’s Day. He’s getting me a boat. As I got home this evening, he was on the phone negotiating with the seller, and he has just now gone to the post office to mail a check and a written offer to buy the boat.

Now it’s a matter of finding a time when Larry and his trailer are available so we can go pick it up.

Is it the Etchells you wanted? Inquiring minds want to know...
