    I do find it interesting the people that approach me when out using the
    sextant are generally either curious kids, or undergrad/graduate students.
    First I give them the Ken Gebhart answer, "It's used for measuring angles of
    celestial bodies."  Most will ask a follow up question, and continue through
    the body over a globe, assumed position, and towards or away intercepts.
    All without their eyes glazing over  Possibly the only time an AARP member
    with am "outdated" navigation tool is "cool." :-)

    For me occasional whining and moaning a positive thing.  At 57 I have
    managed to stay single for 48 of those years (despite four engagements).  A
    wee dose of it helps remind me why.
