It’s River o’Clock

Leave a comment

Years ago, my son Eli and I decided to build an art project underwater in the river. We started with the biggest rock around for hundreds of yards and built a pool around that. Then we began moving the wall of the pool out into the river in search of the late afternoon sun.

Here is what the river looks like.

Ultimately, we ended up with a chronograph. There’s a rock for every hour. Here’s how that ends up looking.

Remember, all of these pictures were taken at 3 o’clock. So sun everywhere. Our trees are damn tall.

Team Tartan: Practice Makes Perfect, but Nobody’s Perfect, so Why Practice?

Or something like that.

For the last eight years, my brother Chris and I have been sailing the National Capitol Leukemia Cup regatta. We mostly do this to raise money to fight leukemia (a disease that killed our mother), but we also like to win the race on the water.

Over the years we have done just a smidge better raising money than we have sailing the race. We were number one in both a few years back. But since then, our sailing has become a bit rusty even while we have taken home the fundraising Leukemia Cup for many years in a row.

This year we’re kicking ass on the fundraising front (thanks to our many donors, but especially to phil venables). So far we have raised a collective $56,207. That is a major record for Team Tartan.

If you would like to donate, you can do it now on the net.

In order to up our game on the water, we did some practice this weekend.

Sailing practice can be tiring. Here is our mascot Stretch ready to jibe.

JIBE! Er, sleep.
