In the meantime, relax, lay back, play with you cat and say hello to your lovely.
Yeah, it's all good, Evan. I have calculated and determined it will be here at the same moment it arrives.

Late this afternoon, I heard voices. In my head. While that isn't all that unusual, these were dolphin voices: "Jim - we are close by! Come out, Jim - we miss you!"

I asked Joan if she heard the voices. No, she never does; the downside of being normal, I guess. I asked if she wanted to take the boat out for a short outing, but she was busy doing some paperwork. The downside of being all responsible, I guess.

So, I took the boat out solo. The dolphins weren't kidding - they were less than a mile from our house, as the crow flies... further to get the boat out the canals. But, what a great viewing this evening! Pretty much takes my mind off of waiting for anything.

Sometimes you just have to listen to the voices. There's another voice in there - not a dolphin - that is saying: "That X10 is on the way - this is the short part of the wait!"

"What's that, voice? What did you just say? Evan is an instigator? Yeah, I knew that. Did you see those dolphins tonight?!!"
