2020 Calendar November

We’re past mid-November, which has upped the urgency in thinking about a 2021 calendar, to do one or not.  And that made me decide to revisit the photos that morning that I took the November photo for  this year.  Houston Star came in with two Moran tugboats.  Any ideas where Houston Star might be today? […]

2020 Calendar October

This post (number 4650+) may stay front and center for a few days because I’ve left my desk, seated myself, precariously, on an unmotorized bike, and am (I hope) making some speed from the western end of the Erie Canal to the eastern one.  I started pedaling Sunday morning from Tonawanda, not Saturday as I’d […]

2020 Calendar September

If you ordered a calendar last year, you might recall that I promised that I’d “extend” the photo set each month.  Well, here’s September, following all the other months.  Call this . . . “how Cleveland turned a toxic industrial sewer into a recreation area, while maintaining industrial activity.”  Recall while looking at these photos […]

2020 Calendar July and August

Yes, I missed doing this in July, so today I play catch-up. Three vessels were on the July page.  First, it’s Louis C, a small tanker reborn as a small crane ship.  I was last aboard her on a very cold morning in January 2020.  The enclosed workshop forward of the wheelhouse features a wood […]

2020 Calendar June

On the 2020 calendar, the top right photo shows a shore fisherman, a small fishing boat, a tug, and a tanker.    The 2013 and 49,999 dwt tanker, Elandra Sea, as of this morning is in the Java Sea, likely almost as far from the sixth boro as you can get.  The tug escorting her in […]

2020 Calendar April and May

I did not forget in the beginning of April about the 2020 calendar enhancement;  there were just too any things going on! So today I both catch up, and get ahead.  And according to my accounting robot, today I post for the 4,500th time.  Champagne is spilling all over my editor’s floor, but he’s not […]

2020 Calendar March

Here’s the photo I considered using on the March calendar page and taken about five seconds before the one I did use.  On March 9, 2019 at 0726 . . . I love the light here, but the tug seemed too small to be the subject on a calendar page.  I do love the purple […]

2020 Tugster Calendar February

Wow!  Today is already 02/02/2020, so turn the calendar page if you have it. Torm Hilde is featured on the February page. Here are more photos of the tanker from last year. So in the interest of making the calendar part of a “transmedia” project, I decided to see where in the world she might […]

2020 Tugster Calendar Going Going . . .

. . . and I hope they’ll soon all be gone.  Here‘s the ordering info. I’ve intended this project to be transmedia, ie, same event told in several formats . . . in this case on paper and on the blog.  I took the photo  for the January page in the early afternoon of January […]

2021 Calendar Going Going…

We’re soon beyond this 2020 year . . . And I’ve decided to once again dive into merch sales.  So, verbatim from last year, “My 2020 2021 calendars are ready and can be mailed out as early as this Monday.  To order, send me your USPS mailing address by email (parrotlect at gmail dot com    […]
