Just filled my boat tanks up. With 2 tanks, two engines and a generator...it was important for me to get filled up before the prices increased. A hundred and something gallons and $433 later...it's all filled up. ha-ha. Good thing that lasts me a while. But no doubt, it would have been $500+, maybe much more...for the same amount of gas (mere days to weeks from now).
Makes me very glad I have a sailboat. God provides the power!
I sailed as an engineer on a ship & then ocean going tugs around the Pacific as far as New Zealand & Central/South America. Being in massive storms at sea drove home on a gut level how insignificant we are.
The storms provided a level of humbleness that life hadn't taught me prior to experiencing them. Even getting held up at gun point & having a knife pulled on me didn't have anything close to their impact.
God & his creations are magnificent beyond mere words.
Thanks for listening to an old man & his musings, Jon
