In the nightmare I found myself nude in bed, and I was looking at a mirror on the ceiling, and I discovered that I am a Black, and I'm circumcised! Quickly I jumped up, found my pants and looked in the pockets to find my driver license photo and it was that same color. Black. I felt myself being very depressed, downcast, sitting in a chair. But it's a wheelchair!
That means, of course, besides being black and Jewish, I'm also disabled! I said to myself, aloud, 'This is impossible. It's impossible that I should be black and Jewish and disabled.'

Hubby and I had a fabulous time at the International Order of the Blue Gavel (IOBG) Installation Dinner this past Saturday night. We arrived at our hotel around 4:00 pm and checked in then walked over to the yacht club to see if there was anything that needed to be done. There wasn't so we had a cocktail with Dr. Vern Bendsen who was checking the dining room to see if it met with his approval. After all it was his big night.
Today hubby and I travel to Encinal Yacht Club for the Installation Dinner & Dance to watch Dr. Vern Bendsen be sworn in as the International President of the International Order of the Blue Gavel. This is an exciting time for him and his lovely wife, Dr. Linda Bendsen, and for all of us in attendance. They are truly a very special couple in the boating world and have been wonderful in helping me through the chairs of our yacht club.
Empress Bee (of the High Sea) asked what our autumn screen savers or desktop choices are. Well, I don't do autumn but I will post what I have currently. Remember I'm a summer girl. I'll do a Christmas desktop, but it will go right back to spring/summer after the first of the year. I do have a ton of desktop icons, but I hid them for this screen shot. Do you see WillThink4Wine at the bottom. This is as autumn as I'm going to get. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to hop into that boat and take it for a spin. Have a terrific day y'all. Did I do that right Miss Bee?
Two good ol' boys in a trailer park were sitting around talking one afternoon over a cold watermelon after getting off of work at their local asbestos plant.
After a while, Skeeter said to his buddy, Skooter, "If'n I was to sneak over to your trailer Saturday & make love to your wife while you was off coon huntin' and she got pregnant and had a baby, would that make us kin?"
It's time to play the comment game again. I've a very busy week this week so I wanted you to have something constructive to do. Now play nice okay!
Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.
One our way to the bay we always pass San Quentin State Prison. Over my years of working I've seen lots of men sentenced to death row. I always wave when I go by. The name that most will remember is Scott Peterson. California will just not execute those folks on death row. Well rarely in any event. The horrible crimes they have committed and been convicted of doesn't seem to come into play here. The term cruel and unusual punishment is a favorite term for the lawyers defending these death row inmates.
We are heading toward Martinez Yacht Club on Friday and we have one more night before we head to our perspective marinas. This is what we look like out on the water. There's nothing like boating on the California Delta.
The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta is an example of an inverted river delta, one of only a few worldwide. It is the largest estuary on the United States' Pacific Coast.
We left the Oakland guest docks after two nights of fun in Alameda and we passed a container ship being off loaded. It's just another sight one sees while traveling in the bay.
One of the main limitations to growth was the inability to transfer containers to rail lines, all cranes historically operating between oceanvessels and trucks. In the 1980s the Port of Oakland began the evaluation of development of an intermodal container transfer capability, i.e. facilities that would allow trans-loading of containers from vessels to either trucks or rail modes.
Yesterday I posted about the superyacht Octopus and today I want to share with you our kind of boating. Here are four of the six vessels that went to the bay. We have Time Out, Holy Moly, Sport 'n' Wood and Our Destination.
Our vessel Anewatee and the commodores Delta Bear didn't make this shot. All of our boats range from 32' to 38'. We were in San Pablo Bay heading for the San Rafael Yacht Club.
Today we are heading back towards home with a visit to Martinez Municipal Marina. We like the park like setting and it's a short walk into downtown Martinez. There's plenty of shopping and places to eat. We spend one night here and then it's back to Willow Berm Marina. Another fine bay cruise enjoyed by all those in attendance. I hope you've enjoyed going along with us. We sure have enjoyed having you come along.
Today we leave San Rafael Yacht Club and head to Oakland Yacht Club. We've been by this yacht club, but we've never ventured inside. Another new experience to be enjoyed. Here's a bit of history about the Oakland Yacht Clubs beginning.
In January 1913, a handful of sailors met at Peterson's Boat House at the foot of 12th Street in Oakland. They formed Oakland Yacht Club which was incorporated in December of that year.
A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer...'
As always we kick off our annual bay cruise at Benicia Yacht Club. This is a great group of folks that treat us great. We also love the town of Benicia and we spend three days here before we depart for the next port of call. To learn about Benicia click HERE.
We'll have dinner somewhere on Friday night, and on Saturday night we have drinks and dinner at the yacht club. Sunday night we will have a Mexican potluck dinner on the dock. Our club can really put together some great food. Come on...join us.
