One of the blessings of boat life is the enjoyment of the natural settings around us. The wildlife proximity can be a bit too much. Every night I am visited by at least one American roach. This involves the performance of a jig worthy of Riverdance. Scurry is not an apt term for the speed of these things. They are fast....... and huge! Think roach B-52 bombers. It is impossible to keep them off the boat. They can fly. Having one run across you in the middle of the night is invigorating (safety tip: do not sleep with a knife in your hand!). I spray areas of the boat but the areas around pets and food cannot be sprayed. The hatch is partially open to allow Cat to come and go. I am trying a repellant consisting of 2 parts water, one part vinegar and 20 drops of peppermint oil in a spray bottle. The invasion has slacked off in the later summer.
And a "What Ho" to the new owners of Gleda. Thanx for the comment. They have a website/blog. Maybe they will have more than two readers (don't get your hopes up). My two followers are sporadic at best. They are here, at least I think they are:
And a "Hey" to Melissa and tribe. Thanks for the comment. Also a "Hi" to Juli, travelling Europe.
Boat enthusiasm and money is a handful of sand. No matter how hard you grasp it, it dribbles between your fingers. I needed to refresh.
Going crazy, I took a break. I have to take care of stuff in Ohio. House maintenance and stuff. Ol' (T)Rusty, the truck, still runs with a new battery. It gets rustier. Some day I will come back to a pile of scale.
What pictures????? Me painting the apartment steps???? Cat sleeping on his back??? My poison ivy rash??
