    And now what did you do TODAY?

    There may be other options for moving your toy hauler that would also work for moving the waverunner. The dolly that I linked to is more of a light weight aluminum "cart" type of thing with soft rubber air filled tires that are wide and bouncy, so they won't get stuck in the sand. The dolly is buoyant, so it's not hard to sort of slide it into place. Then the person on the waverunner can kill the engine and jump off and everyone then pushes the loaded dolly out of the water. It can be a little tricky if there is a lot of wave action, or if you don't have extra hands to help, but it's usually pretty easy. Unfortunately, it wouldn't work to move your toy hauler. It's nowhere near strong enough and the soft rubber tires aren't made to carry a lot of weight. These are really used mostly by people who live on the beach and watersports businesses that can chain them all up to a coconut tree and leave them out overnight. So it's easy in and easy out without having to back a trailer. They basically never leave the sand. But they're not expensive and would work if your trailer has a ramp door and you can install a winch in the front. Then it would just be a matter or securing the waverunner itself (while resting on the dolly) with ratchet straps to the floor of the trailer on each side. That said, this kind of lightweight dolly probably isn't rated for sitting inside of a trailer, loaded with a waverunner, and going down the road at highway driving speeds for long distances. It would probably be Ok for short local trips.

    RIP, Art Neville, 81, another New Orleans legend: https://www.npr.org/2019/07/22/744150388/art-neville-a-new-orleans-icon-dead-at-81?utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_term=nprnews&fbclid=IwAR04PIsyQsEemtDGY2vAH5rARmPLgTCwuZO-_u4zefbNfbx9zTgkWvd5vN8&fbclid=IwAR0Gj4Z7x06VpKbdo8OaaKYz-8EH_KeNBnKmtgAa6kpdVheLg2sA7aF64FY

    You would also need something like this: https://floridasailcraft.com/product/bigfoot-4-wheel-beach-dolly/ and also a winch installed within your trailer to allow you to have a controlled loading and unloading process.

    Oh no! This is going to be a tough one for many of us... Dr. John gone at 77. Heart attack. Truly an original. He was a legend. https://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/news/article_a962e500-8877-11e9-991d-2f4782c02ae0.html That's going to be one hell of a funeral procession... they do huge send offs in New Orleans for even half famous musicians. This one will be epic, as it should be.

    RIP Leon Redbone, a unique character in the world of music, gone at 69 (or 127, read here): https://variety.com/2019/music/news/singer-leon-redbone-dies-at-69-1203229012/?fbclid=IwAR3FXAvS7_OtOc7HDqU9CRqAFkcMiuAc2Ivc3SfrWESOWpM_k4GR6meCBGU

    RIP Bart Starr, 85, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers in their Super Bowl years in the early to mid 60s. RIP, Bill Buckner, 69, a great baseball player for the Dodgers, Cubs and Red Sox, infamous for the routine ground ball the went between his legs while playing first base for the Red Sox in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. He lived it down with a great deal self effacing humor. Fuck dementia.

    Damit, 70 is way too young and car accidents are never a good way to go. RIP, Chet Coppock, legendary Chicago sports broadcaster (talk shows). This guy was born to talk, just such a compelling character. Grew up listening to him on WLS. https://www.robertfeder.com/2019/04/18/sportscaster-chet-coppock-dies-car-accident/?fbclid=IwAR2Riam2lJ1ggcHcHtYr3RTa4g3qjskb3n_yz7AhiznRhLwMvufAj2xtMlE

    Loop pool table

    No kidding! I want one too. Cutting the slate just right would be the trickiest part I would imagine. Love the mathematics of it and the focus point. I think it would be something that people of all ages would enjoy and could become skilled at.

    That was great, Steve. Loved it!

    Loop pool table

    This is as cool as can be, and something I know that Shell will love. It's just amazing to me how it works. Watch the 3 videos for the math and such. http://www.loop-the-game.com/ So I got interested and emailed the guy for pricing. Turns out they're quite expensive, not surprising since they're handmade and quite tricky to get just right. Cost is £15,000 plus shipping. Gulp.

    This guy was here in Cayman these past two days, along with his wife. I couldn't be bothered to go to any of the events. Watched baseball and basketball instead. But by all accounts, they had a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity for local people, especially the kids.
