The Southern Cross

At 4AM in the morning you can see the Southern Cross and the guide stars. In addition the big dipper is out as well at the same time. No clouds in the sky during the dry season here in Grenada… Life is good.
Dinghy concert yesterday on V and Silvio's UFO :) Life is good!!!

Still haven't posted in a while

Cinco is doing much better after 5 week of antibiotics. We have a Dr. appointment next week to see if he is cured. Jupiter is as crazy as always but he has more anxiety when I'm off the boat that he used to have.
I'm still caring for a boat neighbor that has terminal cancer.
Weather down here is awesome at the start of the dry season. Very few cloud and very impressive stars at night. It has also been down to 22C at night so the sheet is used every night.
Today we have doggie walking at Saga Cove. I thing we will have a wiener roast with SMORES… Should be fun.

Sorry for not posting

I am still the primary care provider for an 86 yo man that will soon die. I told him a few days ago that the time for keeping this secret is past… He has accepted that and is now telling people what is going on. One of his last requests is to sing on Tuesday night at the local place called Taffy's in lower Woburn. I will do everything I can to make sure he is there to sing! This is taking a toll on me as well. I've solicited help from others nearby and they are all willing to help. He has a small dog and he thinks that is girlfriend in TX is going to come down and retrieve… She has no intention of doing that… Looks like I will have another dog soon but I will need to find him a home cause I do not want more dogs. Today he called me on the radio at 7AM for urgent help to get him to the Dr.… I got him the help he needed but wasn't back on the boat until 2PM. I coordinate the Taxi, lawyers, and the Dr. Office, etc… This is getting hard to do. My primary dink has been on my bow for over a week and only today did I have time to inflate 1/2 of it to find the leaks…. I still have more to do the finish the repairs. I don't know how much longer I can do this :( He is no longer asking for a gun after I explained to he how it really works in countries with real caring Dr.s.

A day to remember

I spent my morning and lunch (about 4 hours) listening to the life stories of a dying man here in Grenada. It was wonderful. The stories were not that great, but the fact that he was telling them was great. We persuaded him to set up an appointment to see another doctor to explain what he can expect to happen to him in the next few weeks. I'll be taking him to that appointment. We are also working to get him to express his last wishes so they can be documented and turned over to a lawyer as his "will." He has not told his children or any of his family in the US what is happening to him. He again asked for a gun.
