Wind and an out going tide.

The heat of summer has arrived with flooding along the south Australian coastline. I have not written for a while as the doing of the word fun takes up most of my time.Took the boat up the Shoalhaven river which is in part flood from the rains.Got to the rapids and went slowly into them at half throttle doing about walking speed to the land. The boat was on plan and the revs was increased and slowly made headway against the rushing water.Touching ground in several places I moved to the right of the river opened the throttle and turned the boat and hit top speed of forty plus the river speed took us to sixty in a blink of an eye. Throttled back and ran the boat up onto a sand bar for lunch.Lunch was a low key affair with sandwiches and a cup of tea from a thermos. The sound of the water rushing past the rear of the boat made for a relaxing time.  Getting back onto the river meant reversing into the rushing stream of water and turning the boat up stream whilst travelling downstream at 20 miles an hour the accelerating into the current to bring the boat to a stationary position on the river. Then doing the same turn with the speed increasing when travelling with the water. Then it was off to the other end of the river some forty kilometers away going with the tide saved on fuel. Reaching the river bar on an out going tide and a wind coming from behind the boat was swept into the waves wich came half way up the windscreen.There was no turning back as the waves were six foot high bursting threw two more waves then there was a lul in the waves and the boat was swung
 around against the out going tide the wind was wiping up the waves and to go over them would have meant the boat would spear across the front of the wave and capsized so all I could do was to stay on the back of the wave and use the throttle to keep me there. No head way was being made and the boat was being swamped from the rear so a little more throttle was applied and the direction was slightly changed to head for the bank and shallower water where the water was flowing at a slower rate and the waves got smaller. The accelerator was opened and we leaped out of the first wave on to the back of the next. Stability was hard to maintain with all the water we had taken on board. It is good fun finding out what your boat is capable of even though it is dangerous.
Wind running against an out going tide is the most dangerous thing one could do as there is no waiting for the next lull in the waves because you are going to be taken there even if you dont want too... .

Keep the checkout chicks in work Only do business face to face with a human. Stop crank calls demanding money by doing face to face with a human. Get your receipts on paper they can not be deleted only do business face to face stop fraud. Pay your fines face to face at a court house. Keep people in work by only doing face to face.

 Extreme sadness has come to me again. The phone call I just received has left me devastated. I have a lady friend of only several months whom I dance with. She rang to tell me she just found her son dead.
What could I say, I know the pain as I lost my son 18 months ago.
I sit here with tears in my eyes feeling her pain and also my pain.
Sadness is some times unbearable and hard to take and I know life goes on. One thing that makes me go on is we have to live for the living.
Mourning is but a selfish act on our part. I remember the things I did and the words said with love and some not so nice.
To my friend I say to you you are not alone in your grief and more people you know are with you.

Bucket list

Doing something different.. Well I did it.. I went to a rock and roll festival yesterday good people and good times. But before going I was going to have a bath and I had one of those moments with instant decision making for no reason what so ever.  I decided to dive head first into an empty bath tub dont ask me why but the decision was made. Cracked my skull yes physically cracked it the blood was pretty dramatic. Nice little cut to the left temple from the round edge of the tub but the cut was from the inside. Gee do I go out or go to the hospital. Going out seemed like more fun than sitting in a patient waiting room for 4 hours.  Funny thing with concussion it makes one do silly things.
Free face painting cool I'm in. Watched the little kids getting there faces done. Then my turn and as I had just shaved off my long hair and being called wolfman that was the obvious choise for the theme.
This little ninja turtle guy all of 4 looking at himself in a mirror turned and saw me his thumbs went up and he looked and said COOL with the most expressive excitement he could muster. I looked back and went WOW you look great.
Havent got to the really exciting bit yet so read on.
This little girl who was before me in the line was watching me get painted and I said to her go and get your dad and get him painted which was a bit cruel as he would not participate in a little harmless fun. I was saddened as most adults have lost the ability to have fun even when it is free. Grand daughters love to paint grand dads finger nails and women who ask why your nails are painted. I just say grand daughter and the response is always Ahhhhhhh, then they melt.
Now the exciting stuff I entered a beauty padgent....Did my walk across the runway with various gestures with my number 21 then lined up with the most beautiful women in the arena. The girl next to me said this is probably rigged and you will win cause you look great, I said to her you look pretty good your self what could I say except that I did not win and she was beautiful.
Still laughing and the pain from the fall was non existent.  Till now.......two days later.

It has taken some time to burn out and realize that Facebook is mind numbing so back to writing about me and my real life. I have made a new kitchen in my house and done some work on a small car I am making. Dancing rock and roll has taken up much time as well.
So here I am now single with money to do what I like when I like. Choices and only I to please.
Freedom yes freedom is mine for the taking. What to do find a partner maybe but I don't think there is anyone good enough for me. I said that to a woman the other day and she said I had tickets on myself I returned with do you want some....Tried the internet dating sites and got heaps on the first day then it all stopped recons they do that to get you in.
Well back to real life with its ups and downs, Dog got washed vacumed the floors in an hour instead of a day. Hey life is just fine and I even watched a TED talk on fine. no it's friggen fantastic made a rocket stove out of concrete and it burns with very little smoke I will put up pics shortly.
The big thing in Australia is gay marriage hey I think I might marry me wonder if it is legal might get a pension for my new partner as well. MMMMMMMMM that last one might be worth going for. Think of all that extra money might even pay myself child support.
The bathroom will have to have two sinks one for my other self. If I was to do the marriage thing would I get married in white?
Wow life gets interesting safe sex do I go to which bathroom when I'm out.
At least I know when my partner is cheating on me.  Better or worst at least I wont leave me.
I think coming off the internet is going to be like a mental illness talking to me. Some time I do need to talk to an expert so I think it is all OK.

The only thing in the world more important than energy is endurance, What is the difference?..
The act of love is the most important energy of all!
No two things are alike, therefore no numbers past one can be proved..
Invent yourself every time you think!
Love is and has power!
Love is your energy!
Energy makes you King produce it from within!
Ignite! find your energy and Turn it on!
Love rain, piss power...
Your freedom your energy!
Make power your own !!
Make love not war.
The engine of life is the love between strife.
