Rob’s Update: Sailing Fast

Week 41 of 2018

Greetings all

This was not my best week, at least in terms of writing. There were a variety of reasons for that, and they’re all good, though. I got to help my mom and a friend of hers out. I got to do some major work around the house. I get to see the proto-incipient step-daughter this weekend. That all adds up.

So I’m not going to chat much more as we’ve got plans.

Current Playlist Song

Sober by Tool. What an amazing song. It’s one of those that made me love a band immediately.

Quote of the Week

Today is the 243rd birthday of the US Navy. This week’s quote is actually my favorite John Paul Jones quote, though it’s not the one everyone thinks of first.

“I wish to have no Connection with any Ship that does not Sail fast for I intend to go in harm’s way.”
Captain John Paul Jones, 16 November 1778
