5 Things on a Friday: Vegas Sets the Lines

Happy Friday, folks.  I hope everybody out there in Internetland is feeling it for the weekend.

Let's get it on!

Thursday, July 20, 2017


I've been watching HBO's True Blood for the past few weeks via Amazon Prime.  I wouldn't bring it up, except that it's been cutting into my writing time in a serious way.  But I can't shake it.  Cajun Redneck Vampire Porn turns out to be surprisingly addictive once you get into it.

I just started Season 4.  I'm sure I'll be back to a more regular schedule in a couple of weeks.

4600 Yards & a Bit of Swimming Philosophy

It's been kind of a slow week since last Saturday's long open water swim.  I rode my commute a few times, but I got shut out by rain on Friday, and I only managed a little more than 2000 yards when I finally hit the pool Thursday evening.  When I got into the water late this morning, I felt like I needed to catch up.

I still don't know that I necessarily had my best stuff, but my times were decent, and I managed to hang in there until I started feeling at least somewhat like myself in there.  More and more, that's what it takes to have decent workouts.

Long Open Water Swim

Sally and I went for a long swim yesterday, me actually in the water and her following in her kayak.  We started at the Boat Club about ten minutes before high tide with the idea that we'd swim with the current out from the club, through the mouth of the estuary, past Short Beach to Stratford Point, and on to Russian Beach.

Bridgeport Bluefish Report for July 7, 2017

We went out to the Ballpark at Harbor Yard last night to watch our beloved Bridgeport Bluefish take on the New Britain Bees for the first of a three game home series.  This year's Bluefish team is the best that Bridgeport has fielded since at least 2010.  The team is talented and fun to watch, and before last night's game, they sat a mere half-game out of first place in the Atlantic League's Liberty Division.

Still, we weren't initially planning to go last night's game.  I got an email late in the week from the team's Social Media Director asking if Hannah could sing the National Anthem before the game and accepted gladly, though it's been over a year since Hannah had her last voice lesson.  Sally therefore scheduled a last-minute warm-up session with Hannah's old coach, and we made plans to get to the ballpark early, so that we'd be ready for the big moment.
