Russell Wheat’s market report

Fellow OC-504-68 candidate and graduate Russell Wheat of Canyon Lake was, and is, our resident funnyman. His last market report:

 "…helium was up, feathers were down, paper was stationary, elevators rose, escalators continued their slow decline, Coca Cola fizzled, toilet paper reached a new bottom, diapers remained unchanged." 

Safety afloat

One thing I will do before Thursday’s long-distance haul to the rerigging is go buy a self-inflating vest. I never wore one before, but I was never 63 before. People drown on Lake Travis all the time, though I’d not heard this story of sudden drowning on Canyon Lake. Singlehanding as I will be most of the time this year, prudent wins the day.
