There are only 2 Sundays until pool season! I reached that point of being still too long last night and that means it’s time…time to get back into the gym to get ramped up for the season…time to get back in a boat again and shake off the rust. It will be green out soon enough and I want to hit the ground running.

New Stuff

Hey...it's been a little bit since I have written. Basically, this is my off season but the storm has given me the day off and so I have been working on the OSKA website. Osprey Life is now up...and will be added to as we show Dr Kelly's visit to the Antarctic and other stuff. By the way, if you have something you would like show people that you have been up to, drop us a note with a description and photos or a link.

It glares at me from the corner it has been banished to. Having grown up in an era of corporal punishment I always thought that if you spare the rod you spoil the child but this time I wanted to see if I could get a different response and so off to the corner it went. I direct it to look back at the wall while not making eye contact…that only reinforces misbehavior. It won’t be long now until it is released from timeout. Pool season is approaching and if my kayak addiction behaves, we’ll try teaching a few rolling classes. It was bad towards the end of the tour season and needed to take a break to calm down. How most other people don’t have out of control kayak addictions has always made me wonder. Certainly I know a few people whose addictions are absolutely horrid and they do nothing about them…I try to be supportive when they complain but they refuse to even think about corrective responses. Anyway, as I said, timeout is almost over and soon it will be time to feed my addiction and see if it is better behaved.
