Almost time!

Postby CaptainScott » Wed Mar 20, 2013 5:43 am

Yesterday I pulled Lady Jo into our main driveway! Time to clean her up and get ready to sail!

My bride even asked if I was ready to store her up by the boat launch!

Whooooo hoo!

. . . . . . oh wait . . . . . maybe she is looking forward to me being gone sailing. . . . . . . . hmm, I'll have to rethink this . . . . . . .


LOL!

Three cheers for spring!

I was on my way to work in the bitter cold hours this morning - mind you I live in Canada so we have a week or two left of this cold stuff.

Driving down the four lane road, up ahead over the roof line of the car in front of me, what do I see? A wakeboard tower!

This means - a boat!!!

I quickly changed lanes to see it better and there it was, the first boat actually GOING SOMEWHERE I have seen since winter began! That means it is almost time!

Mind you my logic may be flawed. It was in fact a Seadoo boat with a wakeboard tower, not a proper boat, and as such, it likely was going for engine work which would explain its early arrival.

Eitherway - SPRING IS HERE!

Second day of spring and woke up to a fresh coat of new snow. Still waiting for a little global warming.

Yeah! I like it better when "ONE BELOW" means the wife went down to the galley to grab me a tasty beverage. :D

Okay serves me right for putting in a Seattle Rainy crack on the forum yesterday. When I pulled into my driveway last night. Snow on my boat and a little skitch of snow on the ground. :shock: Okay now that never happens here this late in the season. Snow is rare any season but the first day of spring. Now that's just odd.

Thanks
Alan

The storm that hit Denver today they say will be here Monday or Tuesday would like to be able to get cleaning on the boat or I will end up putting it in but then it will be a work boat.
