Aye yi yi.
So we were walking back to the boat from the restaurant and i was hurrying because the wind is blowing so hard and it’s so cold. Just as I was about to step onto the ramp to go down to the dock I tripped. I had a drink in one hand and the bag of leftovers in the other. Fell hard on both knees and somehow busted my toe. One knee has a huge swollen lump on it and the other is black and blue. My toe was bleeding so david had to doctor me up. Thank goodness a first aid kit was not something we forgot to buy!
Since I’m just a little over 2 months out from a back fusion, that’s what had me worried but no back pain.

Maybe We should have named our boat “Never a dull moment”. Lol

Ouchy.
Oh...I did save the drink. It somehow stayed upright. Haha

I think David is exaggerating a bit...ok maybe a lot.
In his mind that might be accurate...lol
(Hoping he doesnít see this lol)

But when it’s just the two of us, we mostly use paper plates. If we cook a nice dinner, we bring out the real plates. I suppose time will tell if we use the dishwasher. Probably would be at our marina after a cookout.

I don’t know what Carolyn’s book is?
Click on the link I posted and then click on cook book.

Ahhh ok.
Do you have a garbage disposal on your boat? We do but I donít know where it goes.

We do, and it goes straight over board!

It gets interesting in the islands when anchored out. When we run the disposal we immediately run to the cockpit to look overboard - - the sea life you see when you send out blended food...

There seems to be a positive correlation between boat ownership and knee replacement surgery. Don't ask me how I know.

We had a ladder in the engine room on our other boat, didnít think about one for this one. Hmmm.

It was a cold windy day. Iím glad to be docked now. Going in search of a drink...hopefully that will help us thaw out!

We did have one casualty...Iíll post a pic later....itís on my phone.
Oh, and I almost ran us aground. Iíll type that story later when I can feel my fingers again. Lol

Sarasota bay was choppy, Tampa bay was nasty, and whatever that is just before you come into the anclote river was pretty yuck. We were rocking and rolling. But we, and the boat, are all in one piece. Well, except for the one casualty. Itís in a lot of pieces. Lol
No way I could ever live up north!!
People who own Jeffersons are some of the nicest people
36 degrees here this morning and the winds yesterday were blowing hard.
Hope this is the last cold front. Looking forward to the Lake maybe this weekend.. Be Safe

"Boat ownership," or alcoholic intake as a result of boat ownership?

I'm sorry you suffered the fall and I hope there is no permanent damage. See what happens when you get off the boat?

One question, what type of shoes were you wearing?
Remember to 'pick up your feet.

Were you wearing glasses? Progressive Lens by any chance?

Had 2 bad falls which I believe were directly attributable to Progressive Lens and not being aware of stuff like that..

You could have hit your head and been laid up for the rest of your life.
Poor hubby would have to either cruise by himself or find another young lady to assist on the boat.

Be selfish, toss those flip flops.
If I were your husband, your flip flops would mysteriously disappear.
