Freefall 1211

Tail chasing and fish catching

Florence, you killed and ate a deer. Why do you care what happens to a worm?

That was a quick kill. Worms are impaled on a hook and left to suffer.

Well, if that's what's bothering you, no problem. Hot coffee, thermal shock, quick kill, no suffering.

Worm Mocha isn't bad either.

I bought that man another cup of coffee.

You shouldn't give to panhandlers like that.

He wasn't panhandling! You took his coffee to pour on the worms!

He should be honored. Close encounter of the third kind. Alien abduction of coffee.

I suppose I should be grateful you don't try to abduct cows.

Never again. Those things may look calm and placid, but boy, can they bite!

Ah, the great semi-terraformed outdoors. It's good to leave civilization behind and get in touch with artificially created nature.

A cup of Mocha worms for bait, a genetically engineered canine by my side, and nothing but the squeaking of my environment suit to break the silence.

Some day, there'll be real nature here. Meadows. Birds. Forests growing wild.

Which is why we have to enjoy it now. Too much nature and I'll be back inside.

Is that sun right? It looks like it's mid-afternoon.

It is mid-afternoon. It's about three.

You were asleep when I got up, and I didn't get up until after noon.

Must make you proud, knowing your captain can out sleep any man alive.

Well, I know that you'll never make a poor decision due to lack of rest.

Here's the bay I was talking about. There's the boat.

It looks swamped.

What was your plan to get it?

You're an engineer. What's a good bait for boats?

Let's hope it's Mocha worms because that's all we've got.

A perfect cast. When the hook sinks down, we'll be able to reel in the boat.

Unless a fish takes the hook.

STUPID FISH!

Okay, that first cast was unlucky. And the second. And the third, fourth, and fifth.

This time, no hook. I tied a little rock on the end of the string.

We are having a run of bad luck, aren't we?

STUPID FISH!

The fishing pole isn't working. No worries. I downloaded the documents used by major corporations to solve their problems.

Step one: Determine if there is a problem. Step two: Determine in whose area the problem lies. Step three: have a meeting.

This water doesn't look too deep.

I'll wade out and pull the boat to shore.

Hey! You can't fix the problem now! Problem solving is in step seven and we're still on step two!

Ah, an excellent boat. Other than being full of water and resting on the bottom, most seaworthy.

I shall rule the waves. This shall be the start of my vast naval armada. Once you get it floating, cleaned up, and back in working condition.

Of course you'll have to stay ashore. Women are bad luck on boats.

I wonder if there's a harpoon in here? I could show you which end the squid goes on.

The boat is in good shape. Bilge pump strainer was clogged. We'll have it floating in no time.

I'll call the owner and let him know we're bringing it to the marina.

I suppose that would be the right thing to do.

I'm proud of you, Sam. Legally, we probably could have claimed this boat as salvage.

HANG UP!
