Welcome from Canada's Wet West Coast
- though the past couple of days have been a summer wonderland. My "formative" sailing years were on a Tanzer 26 and enjoyed the boat thoroughly.
Being from a military back ground I lived in Ottawa three different times, living just on the other side of the National Research
Council, then downtonw on Lisgar street about four blocks from Lisgar High, then Alta Vista, and when really young in "Eastview" now called Vanier Place.
I'm going into UBC hospital for hip surgery replacement - "re-surfacing" - tomorrow: Thursday 18th of May. So by this time tomorrow night, I should be stoned on morphine - I hope.
My boat is an older Catalina
- the "leaky Cauldron" - which is an appropriate name for an older 27 footer. I just went down and checked her out today and kissed her good bye since I won't be seeing her for at least 6 weeks or more (for my hip to heal).
