When not out on the water, there’s plenty of shore work, and there’s plenty of net that needs mending. This is a nice picture of the corks in the foreground, taken by Tamie. I enjoyed the mending. It was kind of nice down time between the intensity of fishing. I could put my headphones in and get caught up with my reading via an audiobook.

Note my headgear. I put my hair up in a top-knot. A sweater from the thrift store served me well and converted quite nicely into an open-top stocking cap with room for my hair, or some of it anyway. In this picture, I’ve got hair coming out the top and bottom.

  1. My wife does a quite a lot of knitting. She always says that it kind of knits her soul together. I wonder what mending fishing nets does to one? A wonderfully earthy image of you.


    1. Thanks Don.

      I’ve thought about taking up knitting. I see folks knit while they chat. Does your wife knit while she watches tv? I listen to a good deal of audiobooks, so I could probably knit on autopilot while I did some reading. Learning while at the same time finding a sustainable solution to clothing one’s self…and others! Knitting is a great way to make Xmas presents, huh?


      1. She does knit while watching TV. But what scares me about women and knitting is that they knitted while watching people having their heads cut off in the French Revolution.
