day2 – assembling

today was spent assembling all the instruments we tuned the previous day, putting them into frame, adding buoys, re-packing the containers. all preps are nearly done as we sit tight waiting for news from the ship. Things are beginning to make sense to me now as far as instruments are concerned. As advertised, the gumby suit fitting was hilarious :-). and as always, a tune-in-the-head for the day, no clue what’s sung, but i love the melody.

    oh, the perfect read for a hot summer day, just the blue of these skies is already a cool breeze. Also, nice red suit. 😉
