toledo ice yacht club: winter fest

this weekend (Jan 30/31) is the annual Winter Fest, hosted by the Toledo Ice Yacht Club.

there will be iceboat rides and iceboat racing, as the event is:

a club tradition focused introducing the sport of iceboating to new people, as well as embracing the comradery of the sport.

I haven’t tried iceboat sailing yet, but think it’d be a blast.  probably not going to make it this year, though.

sailing therapy 

 it’s been too long since I last sailed. 

 

today’s tunes: under pressure

RIP David Bowie.

my room-mate from college and I used to argue about who sang this song.  this was in the dark ages before smartphones allowed you to instantly look things like this up on the google or wikipedia, so we never did come to a conclusion.  I argued it was Queen, he insisted it was David Bowie.

a few years later, after we had both graduated, my friend called me on the phone with great excitement:

him: Thad, remember how we would argue about ‘Under Pressure’ as being Queen OR David Bowie?

me: yes, I remember.  it is Queen.

him: no! I just heard it on the radio… and it is David Bowie AND Queen! we were both right all along!

me: whoa. mind blown.

or something like that.

today’s tunes: down by the seaside

no video, just tunes…  a gem from Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti” album.

Down by the seaside
See the boats go sailin’
