It was sure fun to have bro and sister-in-law come for a 10 day visit. Weather was decent while they were here, although too windy pretty often. We got in some good beach walks and some decent snorkeling. Shelling hasn’t been that great here in Fiji – so far. But we did find this large Nautilus shell. The winch behind it is the largest winch on the boat.
Now you might have thought that I’m done commenting on the Shite-Show in the Washington. Not really, I just can’t keep up with the latest outrages quick enough to get anything written down. When we brought the boat up to Washington DC a few years ago we got a Capitol tour with some friends through the office of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, the highlight being able to ride in the Senate Train (see DC post). If that’s not a reason to run for Congress I don’t know what is. While we were there, I had a brief conversation with one of the Senator’s staff asking about her position on the ACA. The response was reserved and rational sounding. I was surprised, given the rhetoric coming from the Repubs at the time. As the cartoon shows, Senator Murkowski (R) is still acting a like an adult.
