I don’t know that I’ve broadcast it yet, but tomorrow morning (in 6 hours actually) I’m to take part in my first yacht race. I think we have a chance of winning – the boat is sporting a race number of “001”. Because this crew won last year.

Do you think now is a good time to tell the crew I don’t know a sheet from a guy, starboard from the helm? Actually, that is a lie. I picked some terms I do know, because the ones I don’t… well, I don’t know them.

I’m learning that my greatest asset may be my bulk. I suspect I’m going to be primarily ‘rail meat’. The main function of this crew member is to sit on the side of the boat (the rail) that is trying to come out of the water and hold it down. With my incredible bulk I’m sure that will be easy. I think the trick comes in when you have to stay awake all night and half of the next day, and definitely not fall off the boat.

I’ll do my best.

Well Lardy, how’d you go??

I’m struggling with “Lardy”. Were the “t” closer to the “l” on your keyboard I could accept it as a typo and then it would be accurate. The Lardy region in France is some distance from here, so you can’t be talking geographically. So what else could you possibly mean? Could it be…?
Surely not. I’ll continue to ponder.
