Taste testing Mai Tais for arrivals
Mai tai taste testing occurred today at the little yellow house, with Synthia carefully measuring out rum, pineapple juice, squishing limes and wondering whether the race committee needs to spend a bit more for grenadine syrup. Between tastes Synthia discussed the importance of staying within budget. The suggestion was made to serve only the sailors as they arrive, and locking up the liquor in between arrivals, but that idea was rejected as too severe.
Waiting waiting waiting …
So, what are we doing today while we wait for the sailors to make landfall? We’re measuring plaques for the trophies,
and hanging our radio from the tree outside the kitchen.
The black cat is cleaning its fur in the sun. Rob Macfarlane has finished cleaning the bottom of Tiger Beetle and will come by in awhile. Christine Weaver and Jonathan Gutoff have arrived in Lihue and will come by after they set up at their little cottage. David called his mother, Synthia called hers
and I will call mine soon. We are in a state of suspended animation.
