    Ahhhhh. So, now you’ve taken up weight lifting. Heavy duty stuff.

    along those lines, you’ve taken up dismantling weight lift gear? undoing something you must have in order to scatter the parts hither and yonder. what ARE you taking apart? dismembering a soul-less machina? the parts are nice, though.

    Geesh Bob, pay attention. Could it be this is the big boom that was coming?

    I do like these cadmium red parts. Delightful stuff. 🙂

    Looks like a piece of radio tower there in front. I’ve lifted far too many of them!

    This year I managed to swim off of BIANKA (the world’s first electrically propelled Nonsuch 30) until about the third week in October. I thought that was pretty good. Until I saw you take the dip in Gloucester Harbor. Anyone who can go for a swim in Gloucester Harbor in the middle of November is a force to be reckoned with and an inspiration to me to maybe keep swimming off of BIANKA a little later next year. You are now on my blogroll and I tip my cap to you.

    thanks to everyone, but i’m completely embarrassed…this is nothing–

    Julie Sheldon a few weeks ago swam 17.5 M in 6hours 14 minutes, water temperature was 55°–through the major shipping channel, from Battery to Breezy Point: rough waters.

    Two friends, Rachel Golub and Cristian Vergara spent almost 2 hours in the 40° waters of the Strait of Magellan!

    I’m just floating abit, buoyed by a ring of beer flab. Come to Brighton Beach and Coney Island to join in the fun. CIBBOWS is the source of inspiration and camaderie!

      Hi, bowsprite!
      You are nothing if not committed to swimming and enjoying nature. I admire that. Reminds me of when I, along with Nara, and Amy dove on Pioneer’s prop in the Chesapeake. Brrrr! Hope all is well with you and family. Have a great winter! Happy Holidays!

    I was wondering where the new art was! Clearly you were enjoying a well-deserved thaw.
    Very impressive!
