You don't realize how early the sun comes up until you get up before it. This particular morning we headed down to Dennis, MA to hop on a boat and drive it up to Boston. A 38 foot Regal. Not mine, but a neighbors who needed a couple of deck hands to help out and I was more than willing to come along for the ride and do what I could. Fueling up at the docks We would head out of the Bass River and in between the Cape and Martha's Vineyard and chug along the canal heading towards Boston. Docks on the Bass River Cat boat We gave ourselves 6 hours for the trip. We would do it in…

Tonight’s choice: Ashton VSG Paired with an oatmeal stout I picked up in Vermont on my way home from a work trip, great combination as always. Seems you can never go wrong with a Stout. Great cigar. Mild. Burns well and even. A perfect evening by the fire cigar.

Those times when you just can't turn away and folks liken to a train wreck, I have oddly stumbled upon a new guilty pleasure of reading a couple Just Found Out - Adultery forums.The read like a real life crime novel: First there is the suspicion, then the spying and research, the discovery, which crescendos into the fall out.Some of them are so odd you just can't look away nor could you make them up.
