I just have a yellow oily stain on the shelf where the last block of cheese dissolved.

*grumble*

I have a eutectic here, will get that going eventually. It ran off the engine so will need a 12v compressor fitted. Low priority for now.

Oh, and I have a real Jones for ice-cream right now, guess I was missing that too.

A few of the really important ones in no particular order.
1)I miss being able to get food delivered. A few too many and a hot pizza delivered to the door (even in a marina) was always appreciated.
2)A washing machine, but that's easily fixed with money.
3)Pushing a handle on the toilet for a second and having all that mess disappear. Forever.
4)jumping into the car for a drive in the country; island buses are just not the same.
5) the weather channel.
6) a taxi when the wind tops 50 so I can go to a hotel until things calm down again.
Mind you, I haven't lived ashore for more than a few months at a time, very occasionally, since 1969.

Wished I would have missed him too.
