Turn her into the storm!
With the coming of the fall monsoons, I haven't been getting out much, instead remaining hunkered down here in the bunker scrawling away on the all-consuming Incredible Tales of Lake Erie (or something like that). It's a three-year odyssey to try to get a book published. An insane amount of time to spend on such a long shot, you say? Correct! I could have learned four languages by now. But like a good soldier, we press on.
Speaking of, here is the venerable American Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry during the Battle of Lake Erie in 1813. Perry has always been one of my heroes. Why? For one, because he had the balls to row across open water in a small boat while His Majesty's fleet did its best to pump him full of hot lead. And you thought your commute was a pain.
