Josh invited Art and I to go wind surfing with him on Lake Calhoun today (Josh bought a cheap one last year and has become pretty good). After Josh went across most of the lake and back I took a turn. I got out to the middle of the lake without falling down (thankfully, since the edge of the lake is saturated with stringy strands of milfoil reaching up to tangle your legs. Anyway, I turned it around but couldn't figure out how to go back. The physics of it was baffling. Eventually another windsurfer came to the rescue and towed me all the way to shore. A real nice fellow!
