It is hot and still. I got up early to row the old girl to shore for her bathroom break. She is the best thing. Sweet with everyone, patient, and happy to be anywhere I am. All she wants is an ear scratching and her chance to go wade in the water. She is another heart dog, daughter to the one we lost in November.
Breakfast consisted of bacon, vegetarian sausage, an egg, and some curried couscous that we had with blackened tuna last night. It made for an exotic breakfast. I don't eat bacon but C. and the old dog like it once in a while. I do eat eggs and fish but have sworn off meat. We generally have two meals a day out here and that suffices.
I talked to a colleague about the Deep Horizon spill. He said that the oil has taken on a sausage shape where it has collasced near the Loop Current. It is many miles long and as deep as 300 meters. Attempting to get a sample from the huge blob was difficult.
It appears that we don't know the information about the extent of the spill. Why is that information not being given to the public? There are several models that predict it will go up the East coast. I am hoping that won't occur. It would be a mess to have that huge blob of oil cover the corals in the Keys and then get entrained in the Gulf Stream.
I am reminded once again that there are many things beyond my control. I can do what I can should help be needed, but meanwhile there is much to enjoy today. Trouble may come but I won't look for it right now. I like that my father told me not to borrow trouble. Those are wise words.
