5000 sailors saw me in my jammies.
August 15, 2007
In further news about my apparel, 5000 sailors saw me in my jammies when an aircraft carrier went by my house.
It’s pretty common to see a carrier in this part of the world, but I also live in a spot where the carrier can see
Which is a tad disconcerting when you are standing in your yard, blinking at the dawn, having been awakened by an insistent puppy with a very small bladder.
A passing aircraft carrier is surprisingly quiet, even surrounded by tugs and Coast Guard vessels. It glides by, barely leaving a wake, and on a very still morning at about, say 5:30a.m., sound easily carries across the water.
