20 Months and a Day

After EMS training last night Goldfish and I went to the Grand to celebrate our "Island Anniversary" as we do every month on the 19th.  I had visited out here before but was still surprised how at home I felt from the very first day in June 2007.

Tonight after work I rode the motorcycle all the way out to Morris Cove (the end of the island road system in that direction), amazing considering the time of year and no winter road maintenance past Summer's Bay.  The wind was howling then and it still is as I watch F/V Bulldog entering the East Channel and approaching the dock to make a crab delivery.  Goldfish just scooted out the door, heading to the plant to meet the captain and get the paperwork started.  I'm heading to bed to get some reading done, Book Club meets Sunday!

I must be missing something. What is your job? What is hers?

BZ, she works in the main office and has to be present whenever a crab offload starts, to file the on-line reporting (among many other duties). I work in the engineering office ordering all the nuts, bolts, food, etc. to keep the plant going and the boats repaired.

I don't even have to ask how the food was at the "Grand" (that is if you ate), as CB shows us every Sunday. Did you see him by chance? We're on the out-of-sorts right now. Not sure what happened but I know he's very busy. I miss our chats - ANYWAY - BZ you are too funny! LOL! How long have you been reading Steve's blog?

Lori, I didn't see CB - he works days and lives in a bunkhouse about a half mile away from the hotel.
