THE 4-24-00 MMMM IN DETAIL
Carl's 4-23 noted his intended absence at 4-24 MMMM, also a
24-1040 phone call to Ed. His excuse being having company to which Ed
suggested bring the company along, Carl demurring. Ed's concern, Carl
not having his usual heave arounds each week would probably cause a crab,
moody, rash, etc.
Ed went on his lonely
way, in dead silence except for Pavorotti singing several opera
arias. 1135 Ed arrived at Captains Grill
maneuvering into a parking spot with Dick almost colliding, but Ed using
his many years of maneuvering ships, expertly saved the
Ed & Dick arriving
tableside found Gary & Gene Si already seated, coffee cup at their lips.
Diane her usual hovering about seeing to her charges every
started on Ed's lack of PC expertise, also complained of not receiving
from Ed. Ed came back saying the worst thing happened to the world was
the frigging conputer, all in hearing, acted with
aghast. Dick mentioned the USAT Hunter Ligget on which he
rode during the 1st world war. He saw a picture of the
trying to get Diane to his house offered a bag of grapefruit, she
suggesting he bring it to next meeting, all agreeing she would be safer
that way. This also brought up the subject of the age of citrus trees,
seemed that 40 to 50 yrs, opined by
Sp ambled in 30 min late greeting all happily after a long absence.
Diane quickly serving Gene a bloody mary. What a
Si had a problem deciding what line to use for halyard on radio tower,
3twist or braided nylon. Ed's expertise suggested 3 twist. Anyone out
there might send Gene their thoughts. Also Gene digging a hole for the
antenna found water at 3 ft. What the heck, did he think he would find
oil. Again Gene was upset as the coffee lid on the pot didn't fit. Ed in
his usual aplomb cooled Gene
happy, he can attend all the MMMM as wife Mary got a job with the census
bureau, at $11 an hour. Gary also told how he drove a 1959 Caddy from San
Diego to NYK on a tank of gas and a trunk loaded with propane gas. Seems
like he was riding a time
fill in for Diane a while back appeared after a long absence, came in
giving Ed a big hug. Goes to show you, the girls just can't resist
handsome Ed. Of course, Ed with his great modesty, accepts all the much
the 0600 excercise, Roy Hill (spook) told Ed he would show up at MMMM,
but as Gene predicted, he didn't show. Gene tried to bring him up on
radio, to no
pea or french onion, variety of salad fixings, ham, sausage & sauercrout,
fish, variety of veggies, topped with banna pudding and variety of
missed, glass of water representing a heave around was put at his place.
Ed considered delivering a heave around to his residence. Using common
sense, decided against it as Carl would expect it
1300 the meeting broke up.
