The person who puts bait in the bags and the bags in the traps for a lobsterfisher
is someone who "works stern". Meaning she/he is in the back of the boat
doing the odd jobs while the captain in the bow steers the boat to the fishing grounds,
starts the winch, and moves forward to pay out the lines.
Not lobstering today. Instead, I'm helping my daughter hang curtain hardware and new curtains.
We didn't start until baby went to bed.
She is doing all the hard work while I do the fetching. And the cheering on.
I am sitting here in the living room, knitting, jumping up and down
as requested to be in service of this excellent project.
Thus, I can't think. Or compose.
But I wanted to say hi to all of you.
Hi. Hope all of you Americans are having a great three-day weekend.
And that the Canadians and others are just as happy.
