Sunday Feb 15 An Early Spring

Written by Jack van Ommen on February 15th, 2015

We have had unusual mild weather in the last weeks. The Daffodils, Japanese Plums, Azaleas, Forsythias and even Rhododendrons are blooming already. Today was a sunny but cold day. I went to mass in Gig Harbor, I had not been to my parish church service since the day before I left for Virginia on December 14. Afterwards I attempted to get the engine running with the new fuel pump. The last time I had leaks in the lines. This is fixed but I still could not get the engine started.

Last weekend a number of sailing men friends from Gig Harbor got together on Saturday in the Foss Waterway Marina in Downtown Tacoma. I hitched a ride with Roger and his brother Tom.

I am still staying with Rose Marie and Donovan in Federal Way. I have the right eye de-cataractized on the 23rd and the other eye soon after. From the 8th of March I shall be a permanent resident again in Gig Harbor.
