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.

Sailboat Shots for Tillerman

Tillerman recently put up a post featuring pictures of one-of-a-kind boats. I would like to volunteer Rags, the flagship of a man I call Cap'n Groovy, as such a boat.

Cap'n Groovy is an artist who lives in T or C. He specializes in creating art out of "found objects" -- for example, when the local Sonic Drive-In remodeled, he took the old orange neon-threaded ice-cream cones and created a submarine.

Cap'n Groovy sails just to sail. He's not into racing or performance or anything like that. He just takes his boat, Rags, out onto the lake whenever he feels like it, and he just sails. He just is.
