It’s very quiet at the Florida Sea Base.  The staff are sleeping in.  I’m still struggling with a major head cold.  The weather is typical for this time of year.  Danielle is no threat to us.  Earl will come quite a bit closer but should miss us too.  The computer models on Invest 97 still show it turning north before getting to the Bahamas.  I hope they’re right, but I have an uneasy feeling about 97.  Maybe it’s just the NyQuil® and Alka Seltzer Plus® cocktails.

Capt. Dennis saw yesterday’s blog and sent this reply:

Peep. Stop. No jail. Stop. Trip home ok. Stop. Working on Ghetto House. Stop. Slow and steady wins the race. Stop. Haste makes waste. Stop. We hope to have a home/house in November. Stop. 2011? 2012?
Dennis and Ellen

That was definitely authored by Capt. Dennis.  It cracks me up, even at 06:30 with a head cold.  But it also makes me wonder what Ellen’s version is.  I have some thoughts that I tried to put into words, but I deleted them.  [When I went to school we “erased” our mistakes or “corrected” them on a typewriter.  Now we “delete” them.  Which brings up another sign of old age.  The other day I had to refer a staff member to Wikipedia to look up “typewriter”.  They were unfamiliar with the device.]

That’s it for now.  I may post a follow-up if I start feeling better or hear anything of interest.  Have a great weekend.
