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.

Happy Valentine's Day?

A gift that goes vroom ...
Five years ago, Pat got me a sailboat for Valentine's Day. This year, it's something a bit different.
And it's RED!
And this, too, is better than flowers or chocolates.

Is this car replacing the beloved Ford Expedition? Say it ain't so!

No, it's replacing the dreaded Saturn, which was a less-than-adequate replacement for the Cavalier that got totaled when a Chinese tire blew and sent it playing pinball between freeway guardrails.

BTW, I'm now working on giving the car a name, and I'm open to suggestions.

The Hot Tamale?

El Chiltepe. The Guatemalan guys that worked for me would bring these intensely hot chiles in called Chiltepes. Knock your socks off. I loved the heat, but often they'd take my breath away and leave me hiccupping. No fun.

El Chiltepe Roja.

Candy may be dandy, but there's a lot to be said for a Valentine's gift that comes with a bumper to bumper warranty.

Pat, my man, what are you thinking? You are setting the bar way too high for all of us other husbands. My wife really didn't want an Etchells for Valentines' Day... but a new car!!!! Come on, guy, show some solidarity with the masses of other husbands who will never hear the last of it if our wives hear of this extravagance.

So that's why the T-man kicked us out!

That's right Pat. In solidarity with husbands everywhere you have left me with no alternative but to delete this blog from my blogroll. Can you imagine what would happen if our wives saw this post? You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?

Surely I'd wants lots of dollars for decency!

Besides, I could have done something much worse...

FINALLY went sailing for the first time this year, embarrassingly late into the season, sigh.
