As for Tex, yes you are correct. I won't be using Algae until the tuna door is built -- and that's no longer a Top Priority. I've put it off for next year. By then, I believe I'll be as good as I'll ever be.
The thing is, the arm itself should heal in a couple of months. Full recovery as most over 50 realize does not happen that quickly. For the time being I'll use Seaweed as my "dinghy" -- allowing her to take me to shore as needed. Here (Madeira Beach area of St. Petersburg) the local McDonald's has a dinghy dock. It is also adjacent to a Publix grocery store.
And too, while I'm rafted up, I can get rides to Walmart and such when offered. I don't like asking though, you know? And too, I tend to take longer than those on a Mission.
There is a fundamental difference in many cases. I wander around and unless I'm on a mission, prefer that. Being hurried does not make for a pleasant experience. At least not for me.
Next week one of my friends will go out with me aboard Seaweed. I believe I can successfully anchor and dock solo, even with my bad arm. That said, a neighbor volunteered to ride with, just in case. I admit to going stir crazy being stuck here.
You have no idea how disappointed I was to fall. Mad at myself, sad that I wasn't going to get to go on the planned mini-cruise, and then too there was a bit of a Pity Party. Mostly though I was irritated that my carefully made plans could be fouled up by a moment of inattention.
I was focused on the Goal, not on what I was doing at present. Argh.
Too, it is a bit embarrassing. I'm Supposed to know what I'm doing.
Anyway, I'm working at that Humility thing. And getting better -- doing the exercises, not lifting, no pushing, no pulling, etc.
It's good to be back. I missed y'all.
I do have friends. This boy is bringing me another twig. He wants to make a next on my anchor locker. That is not going to happen. I keep giving him back his twigs.
