Beautiful full moon tonight. Or near full. Great time to be on the water.

Nice legs!

David said...

It's the legs that go first.

You have not gone yet.

The good professor has the gams of a 25 year old woman. Congratulations.

You're pulling that moment off better than Kerry did his, AA :)

Big Mike said...

@Professor, some of your students would mortgage their first-born child for legs like that! The active lifestyle you've been living has done well by you.

Cowabunga! You would have been one happening surf chick in 1966 Perfesser. I'm thinking you did spend time in Ocean Beach, maryland.

Beach Blanket Bingo!
That's the name of the game!

Looking good! Perhaps the Wingra interlude was followed by a Viagra interlude or perhaps Meade is all that AND more.

I was recently in Hawaii and saw a lot of paddleboarding going on. I don't see the attraction. It looks awkward. Kayaking looks fun. Surfing looks fun. I guess there must be something to it, because there are a lot of people doing it.

Just gotta' say, wow, talk about a sublime quality of life. For you and Meade, the math has worked out to be 1+1= pure, well deserved happiness.

If a lot of people are doing it, it must be easy. Those fun looking things are hard to do.

Kayaking may be a more effective way to cover territory and carry stuff with you, like if you wanted to go camping on an island or something, but for just getting out on the water and enjoying the scenery, it's more fun to be standing up. The physical activity of balancing and using a long paddle is more pleasurable. At Wingra Boats, you can see the choices people are making: you can pick a kayak or a paddleboard, and these days, paddleboards are winning.

We used to go to Ocean City, New Jersey every summer.

Hey, I grew up in Ocean City, NJ. When I was a teenager,I always loved the phenomenon of getting to tweak my personality a little for the summer kids. I was just talking to an old classmate who had just come back from a visit there and she was amazed (and aghast) at all the incredibly large houses that completely blocked a view of the ocean from the street.

"incredibly large houses that completely blocked a view of the ocean from the street."

We stayed at my aunt and uncle's cottage, which had 2 bedrooms. So there were 4 adults and 5 kids. One adult couple had a bedroom and the other couple slept in the living room on a fold-out sofa. the other bedroom had 2 sets of bunk beds and they rolled out a cot for the youngest kid, my brother. My 2 cousins, who were older, had the top bunks, which seemed so much better to me, and my sister and I got lower bunks.

I don't remember anyone acting like these were crowded accommodations or any kind of a problem.

There was a little kitchen and room for a dining table.

The walls were knotty pine, which to me seemed really cool. There was a tiny bathroom and an extra shower outdoors for washing off sand.

You had to walk 2 or 3 blocks to get to the beach, and you had to climb stairs over a wooden wall to get to the beach, so the ocean was always blocked from view there.

The beach was great. Full of fine white sand.

Sometimes there were splotches of tar, which we were told came from the ships in WWII. This was in the early 60s.

Actually there were 2 bathrooms. I just remembered that. A little extra bathroom off the kids room. I remember watching my teenaged cousin shave her legs there and questioning her about why only the lower legs were shaved.

(She was, by the way, so beautiful that, all my life, it's been hard for me to see women who are called beautiful as that beautiful. She was simply my cousin, so I didn't see the big deal about her. Only much later did I look back and figure that out. If you want to know what she looked like, picture Cindy Crawford, but better!)
