I am told by my legal advisors that in Calvert County, it is a crime to libel a husband. The punishment is severe: allowing the husband to leave the seat up for 30 days without comment (not even an elaborately heavy sigh as she puts it down) from the wife. Accordingly, since the mere suggestion in my prior post that the crew of Calypso would leave their bunks unmade could have been actionable, I hereby retract that comment.
Here is the photographic evidence:
For me to question the accuracy of that image, in the absence of a time/date stamp, would also be a problem in Calvert County. So I won’t. Instead, I say “Good boys!” Now you can have some Halloween candy from the jar. (I’m sure you don’t know where it is… It’s on the port side….)
And, yes, the fact that Calypso is in Calvert County instead of having made it all the way to Norfolk means that the weather wasted no time in altering the best made plans. After sustained 30-knot winds, the crew wisely implemented Plan L and put into Solomon’s Island.
