I am returning for the abuse, not the enlightenment.

I was searching for a Jack Nicholson scene on you-toob and came upon this little gem;

Fortunately, most dining establishments are a bit more flexible in helping the crazy requirements of today's fickle eater. A chicken salad sandwich does sound kind of nice, doesn't it?

The routine is approaching normal, I have been rearranging the garage to make room for the commuter car that will be moving in. It's a diesel sedan that enables the Barco crew to ride in comfort with the many guests we seem have acquired lately. Two seat vehicles are a bit selfish, I know. How was I to see that we actually have friends and family visitors? The current Truckster will reside in the garage next to new car and the result of this transaction is reducing the crazy mileage we have been piling on to the older car. Hint; Almost 28K miles in 2.5 years. This style of daily driving is not sustainable with a car that requires such expensive and regular maintenance and the VW diesel is probably bullet proof and as maintenance free as a cheap bicycle. I do exaggerate about Das Auto.

Photos of last week's trip were on my mind. yesterday and I cruised the inter-webz looking for a map of Beveridge Reef and came upon this: Callisto. I was there and did not get to see those photographs, whoo! Go ahead, click on them pictures to enlarge. Anyway, I was onboard the sailboat anchored in the last photo and remember seeing Callisto's crew up the mast. Fun times. We visited Callisto regularly over the next month of that trip. Very nice  folks.

Haben Sie einen schönen Tag!

Ah, Mr. Nicholson. On of my fave actors, if not THE fave. Have you seen Five Easy Pieces in its entirety? He never made a BETTER movie.

Great pics at the Callisto link. It's good to see water that clear still exists in the world.

Grats on the new vehicle!
