I take some time to go to Tillicum Village and have a pulled pork sandwich for dinner. It is smoked there all day. Yummy.
I am ready to get to Gig Harbor and meet my friends, Virginia and Jane for dinner at the Mexican Place across the street. A dock buddy helps me get Pashmina up on the roof. While I am still getting used to this new process, it is not smooth. I have some carpet and a towel under her to protect the hardtop. It has been suggested that some pool noodles might support her and protect the hard top. Another suggested putting some pvc tubing inside the noodle to keep the noodle from collapsing with the weight of the porta bote might be of help.
Virginia, sitting next to me, is a retired Colonel PT who has been my teacher, mentor, boss, and Chief since I was a 2nd Lt. at age 22.
