sailing again

Went sailing again today, it looked like it was going to be horrid...20 knots of wind and too little crew, but there was another man there, he was in his mid-seventies who totally whipped us at some of the heavy work....*blush*

It was a whole lot of fun in the end, though the weather looked very grim, it turned out great...and the girls went off to see Get Smart, which was pretty funny I am told.

Again, hot faced, wind burned, hair mussed and bone tired, a fun day.

And Spain beat Germany for the European title!!!!

Wahoo! Bet there are fireworks going off in Spain today!

Sounds like a day well spent!

And yeah . . . there's nothing like getting shown-up by a seventy-something. GAH - reminds me of my yoga class *star* who was 65.

I was thinking of you when Spain won. Perhaps Nadal will win Wimbledon thus making it a double for Spain. Enjoy sailing and love to all the family there

Beth, I think they're doing OK, kinda hot and sweaty right about now though....

Trish, pull up our socks, and our waistlines, and our....goodness gracious, that was humbling.

elPadawan, no, I didn't hear much either, the man did though....not like when Italy has won here, now that is a party.

Hula, it was a pretty darned good day indeed.

Terrie, we have our fingers crossed, hoping for the end of Aug first week in Sept...but we have to get a new roof, so it kinda depends on what they find as they take it apart...if it's too bad, we won't have any CASH....

Boo, maybe maybe maybe...and some formula one guy, plus the lakers, there is a Catalan player on the team...we're having fun.

Sounds like another good day doing what you love to do. I will have to go console Steffi who is from Germany.
