Default Cruise ship and beach eyeballing

Yesterday at work the Grandeur of the Seas was due in for it's second time this cruise season. I did the initial pier sweep and while doing so came across two five dollar bills. Lunch money. Who needs a detector!

Late start today after housework and picking Marie up from work. Was another scorcher. Decided to do area around a lake. Parking lot was vacant but right along the end was a pink hard shelled change purse. Opened it up slowly.... inside were 2 fives and 17 coins for a total of $14.30 which will be added to the "Going back to England Fund."

The "Quota Guru" (my oldest machine of which I cannot speak it's manufacturer name and hence forth will be referred to as Quota Guru) was humming while my knees were cracking with the heat rising.

After a few coins went aquatic with the "Orca" ( whose manufacturers name cannot be spoken and henceforth will be called Orca) came out of the trunk and the Quota Guru was deposited along with "Zen." ( whose manufacturers name cannot be spoken and from henceforth will be known as Zen as it has been back for repairs 5 times testing my resolve). One of the first aquatic finds was a nifty pin which says it all.

3 under quota for the brief outing with a total $20.99.

Speaking of attitude guess I'm being kind of lunk headed about the hat issue but on the flip side I applied for my Canadian Old Age pension the other day which you can do up to 11 months before you turn 65.Now if I forget to apply for it it doesn't matter. Thus I can claim my tantrum on old age, 2nd childhood or just one who sticks to the principle regarding detector brand loyalty.

Life is a beach at least till the tide comes in and the Bud is all gone! Swisher and digger for 44 years . Tant it da trut me bouy dat green tis the way to goes!
