Two of these serious-grade badasses sporting the company’s initials on the sides came out of the marina today, powered up, goosed their sirens, and scared the almighty yip out of Bella during our morning walk. She jumped, ran, and yanked … Continue reading
I’m slightly drunk and very tired…. I should be working, but am thinking: “I could take an antihistamine and go to bed… yeah….” And I am feeling a bit strange about the things I’m writing…. This is going to be … Continue reading
Today we finally got the elusive fridge. It took quite a bit of weird paper chasing, phone calls and other insanity, but the order was confirmed and delivered to Fisheries Supply on Thursday. We were told we could pick it … Continue reading
Today we have begun our revenge on the Evil Bad Fridge (henceforth known as EBF) that attempted to kill us on Wednesday. This afternoon, after double-checking on the location of the nearest transfer station that would take it and that … Continue reading
