MW Mobile Blog

For friends, family and the random search engine visitor. This blog started as an experiment in mobile blogging from my Palm TREO 600 700 Prē HTC Evo,Samsung 5. Now it serves as a simple repository of favorite activities. Expect bad golf, good fishing, great sailing, eating, drinking, adventure travel, occasional politics and anything else I find interesting along the way including, but not limited to, any of the labels listed here...

I'm sure there is a lesson here...

... just not sure what it is.

I think its a demonstration on how to properly anchor your boat. Too bad we do not have enough water at our dock to try this technique.

I really do think that rocks make a better retaining wall then logs and dirt.

I would have to agree with that. Uncle mike you should canoe out to the island and get some big rocks to start a rock retaining wall at the end of our new beach front.

While I agree completely with you boys about the superiority of a rock retaining wall, the sad truth is(to paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld) -

You build a wall with the workers you have, not the workers you wish you have.

Frankly, I am surprised it turned out as well as it did.

I think it was more a failure of leadership. There was no expectation of anything better. We were instructed to build with logs and dirt.
