But today the weather was rainy, we had taken the barbecue down to mount the full boat enclosure and I had already taken our proposed grilled salmon from our home freezer to marinate.

FISH CHOWDER

I was distracted today… I call it AAADD (Age Affected Attention Deficit Disorder) You know the kind of day when you start out pursuing one task, then you pass by something that needs to be done, then something else attracts you and you start in on that, and by the end of the day nothing in particular gets done. This was one of those days… […]
