A Tale Of Two Islands...

I have spent some 38 years in Florida and about 8 of said years in the Florida Keys, including Key West.  I have now been living in Hawaii on the island of Maui for 6 months.  So, with said experience, and my ability to fling bovine fecal matter with the best of them, I am […]

Yes, you read the title correctly, I have found a downside to a minimalist lifestyle.  It’s not much, but it is aggravating as all hell.  Let me ‘splain. I practice a minimalist lifestyle in many ways, not just in physical possessions.  I try to keep as many aspects of life to a minimal and uncomplicated […]

6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

The Aftermath Of A Hawaiian Winter Storm...

We get winter too.  A front came through the islands on Sunday and Monday with high winds, lots of rain, causing flooding, some downed trees, and some power outages on the windward side of the islands.  I went out on Tuesday to get some photos of the carnage. Caution:  These photos may cause some distress: […]

Still Adjusting...

I’ve been out here in the middle of the Pacific ocean now for 6 months.  It’s been quite the interesting experience suddenly living where everyone said I could not.  The weather continues to remain near constantly sunny and mild.  I haven’t been too cold nor too hot.  Have had no need for ac nor heat. […]

In my never ending quest to do more with less, I bring you the story of the iPhone and the changes I have made regarding said device. I’ve been a fan of the iPhone since it first came out and it has become a very important piece of equipment for my day to day existence.  I […]

It's A Lifestyle, Not A Fad...

2017 marks 15 years since I began a long, sometimes difficult, but always rewarding move towards a minimalist lifestyle.  Back in 2002 I was living in a house which I owned, and owed money on.  I had credit card debt, motorcycle loans, and had even bought a second piece of property, namely a rv lot […]

In case you have been wondering where everyone’s favorite mermaid has been hiding lately, Nikki had a busy year ending with her marriage to the luckiest guy on the planet, Jaco, followed by a wild, at least according to Facebook, honeymoon in Thailand.  Things have settled down and she is back to work doing what she […]

Yeah, I'm Still Here...

I know, postings have been slim.  I’ve been doing nothing special lately and really don’t have much new stuff to report.  The main thing is getting through the interminable holidays finally and now life can be normal again.  I’m really not much for all the hoopla and it just seems to drag on forever.  At […]

Just Remember This...

If the sun sets behind the clouds, it’s all good.  If the sun sets in front of the clouds, we are in deep trouble. Saw a couple whales out there whilst photoing the sunset but they were too far off to catch with the camera.  I’ll get some shots eventually. Capt. Fritter

So, you made it through the holiday season.  You put in all those extra hours.  You went the extra mile for the customer as well as the company.  You came in early, stayed late, missed all the holiday fun so you could hit those sales goals, complete the inventories, and get those TPS reports filed […]

It was a helluva year.  If there is […]
