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.

Actually, Pat wrote this post ... He didn't notice which blog was logged in, and didn't realize he wasn't on Desert Sea until after he clicked "Submit Post."

We've found a whole lot of stuff, such as tuning numbers, online, but if you know any secrets we should know, send an email.

Meanwhile, we have discovered that one of the hotshot sailors here was really excited to find that someone was bringing an Etchells to the Dillon Open. He's actively looking for one to buy (in about the $6K range -- nothing fancy, but serviceable). I'm thinking maybe it wasn't an accident that we got a slip right across from his while we're here.
