A malcontent? Me? Never!
All is reasonably well, if you were wondering. We’re heading out and will be off the grid the next little while, so I’ve no reason for being a malcontent. I might not be able to get to WordPress, read my favourites, but will catch up upon our return. I’ll be hoppier, I mean, happier and refreshed no doubt. Buzzing, even.
Buzzing? What was that sound up and down the bay the past few days? It was the coast guards in their retro-futurist hovercraft, doing some essential maintenance in and around the channel. Goodness, it was noisy when it was drifting past the office. I had to come outside, look for what I thought was a low flying helicopter, when it turned out to be a slow speeding hovercraft. Once it got past the restricted part of the channel, it revved up and took off at quite a pace. Fun toy. Oops, I mean fun essential work vessel.
Sunshine will be changing to rain by the time this is posted. Lots of rain, long overdue – I had to rescue our tomatoes before the storm. Two tomatoes last season, hard to top those numbers, but we’ve had a much better crop this year if you look at the photo. Almost a glut, I’d say.
Right, I’d better go pack, add the rain gear and, optimistic and hoppy as always, sunglasses. Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks, Walt – we enjoyed some hoppy moments!
Ukee’s got a hover craft? I didn’t know that? So where are you going that is off grid?
In truth, it was off grid in that I put my digital devices away for a few days – more a detox I guess? Salt Spring is connected, but I chose not to be…
No mention of where you are going-oh, that has me curious.
All will be/was revealed, location wise!
Love the ale choice for this week and had to laugh at all the hoppy vibes and wonderful tomato crop this year! Good weekend to be off the grid for the Premier League and it is very, very early in the season to not be able to talk about Everton or Tottenham, but luckily my football teams had a good weekend. The hovercraft is cool and hope the hoppy vibes and sunglasses kept the rain away!!
We enjoyed a few hoppy vibes, and I didn’t enjoy some of the match reports when I caught up with them – even the win against lowly Norwich was a dull affair according to my brother. He has the misfortune to be a season ticket holder!
