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, Pixel 3, Pixel 6 Pro. 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...

You can never have enough Plan 'B's

So we charged two batteries and put them in the boat, because we didn't know which one would hold a charge, and then the switch on the throttle/handle of the motor started acting up and the motor would not go with either battery. So, no problem, we still had oars. After about 15 minutes of rowing, the bolt on the oarlock snapped and went into the drink. So there we were, across the lake without a paddle. Poppa panicked, jump ship and swam ashore. I was forced to swim the boat back to our dock, with the tie rope clenched between my teeth.
