Nasty weather conditions remain,overcast, showers, NE 35-40KPH, this is the order of the day till at least mid-week. The sun is avoiding visiting after this system has moved along, overcast skies mentioned at the moment.

Review for next week exams will take up this week, Emily still remains very excited after the Orientation effort at UNB. Rob on the otherhand just looking forward to having the school year behind him, hopefully with a good enough average to move onto his graduation year.

The MOONRAKER, my information tells me, struck the ledge known as THE BULL filled quickly, a bit of struggle claiming all hands, but done successfully. Don't know if she is on bottom or a bit of her still afloat.

Dear Rob:

I just got the word about the Moonraker from Jeanne as well. She, too, was glad that no one was lost. When someone is lost it seems to take the stuffing out of Gerald all over again - having lost his dad and uncle so many years ago. I guess you never forget that stuff. I am not sure how an experienced cap and crew could strike a known ledge. Did you have rough weather that day?

I am glad that I am not the only one who knows how it feels to be 'replaceable'. The day we took Sarah to the University she was the same - kind of clingy - but by the time we were getting ready to leave she barely had time to say 'thanks and see you soon' as she was so busy meeting and greeting. The beginning of the end. Now every year she is off to parts unknown and we barely see her at all, except when times seem to be a bit hard, and then she comes home for a shot of comfort and then is off again. The chicks leave the nest and every year for longer periods of time.

HOW did your relay go? Ours is this weekend. Pray for no rain and that we don't have to wear snowsuits.

I see David is going to the DFO thing. I went to a baby shower this past weekend for neice, who works at DFO, and I asked her if she was going to take her whole year maternity leave. A lot of girls aren't any more because they can't afford to. Anywho, she said, well yes!! The Federal Government pays 97% of our wages - so why not? Why not indeed! This in my mind is why some of us always struggle and the rest in government jobs are making it work - with their big houses and cars. Oh well, the government knows best (*&^$^& ??

Have a good one. Word. Chunks.

Morning,
The MOONRAKER was a source of bait for us on Islesford. They off loaded on Campobello and the bait was trucked to us. This seems to be a case of "small world" Boats can be built, rebuilt and repaired and new seines as well. The crew survived and can fish again.

Hunkering down for crappy weather all week. Off to Ellsworth tonight for a DMR (state DFO) hearing in regards to island licenses for lobster fishing.
stay dry, David
