Hey don't feel like the Lone Ranger. I have been stood up so many times in my life, I am always surprised when my date shows up or is there when I pick her up.

Couple of weeks ago, I had a date for lunch. Told the guy handing out tables,
"I am expecting a lady but, I won't be surprised if she doesn't show up.", and sure enough, stood up again.

After a while, it doesn't hurt anymore. SHRUG

It might be in the invite - do you tell her you have a trawler - or a yacht?!

No, you were super busy and had about 30 people to organize. I am more comfortable with a few people around.

I always describe it as a little bitty boat.
Ah BTW, it was only for lunch, away from the boat. SHRUG.

Also, the marina is full of busy bodies in the surrounding condos. They have nothing else to do than to observe my life (eat your heart out) and ask really stupid questions, the first being, "How did you two meet?"
Always I tell the same story. "I was drunk and dancing on a table in a strip club. A group of 'church ladies' came in, to save souls. One saw I was way too drunk to drive home. She drove me home, the next day she came to drive me back to my car. After that, we became friends."
Not sure why but, no one believes that story.
Now why would I ever lie about 'How we met'?

Wifey B: You're like many women rolled up into one and aspects people would never expect to fit together. I'm impressed with all the work on a boat you can do yourself. I love women like you who just blow all the stereotypes away. Model to mother to boat mechanic. Comfy in front of camera and just chatting with people who drop by.

I love that you're just a gal and just don't try to fit some mold but you are who you are. My kind of woman.

Post of the month!

Many of us appreciate strong, capable women who break the stereotypes. I'm proud of raising 2 daughters who have grown into strong women (27 and 28), experts in their own fields and diversified areas of interest. I always appreciated a lady who knew the difference between a 7/16 socket and a 3/8 drive.

Being from a big family with 8 kids in a small suburbia Midwest town, I learned quite a bit from my sisters...and they learned a thing or two from me. But I never learned to sew. I should fix that!

Me neither. During mid-school, "practical" classes for boys were wood and metal working. Girls went to homemaking classes, but both my sisters never learned to cook or sew, or at least never used those skills afterward!

I have a cousin who his senior year of high school took home economics. He did it because he had a crush on the teacher who was the wife of the baseball coach and he was a star pitcher so had been around her a lot, plus the idea of a class with all girls appealed to him as a teen boy. He often said later it was one of the most valuable courses he ever took. Having some basic cooking and homemaking skills and even the sewing skills came in handy to a single guy out on his own.

You're right there WifeyB. If I didn't know how to sew back on stray buttons, I'd have no shirts left I could wear. My wife always saves those jobs up "until there's a decent number to make it worthwhile hauling out the sewing machine, needles, and cotton, etc."

Also, using scaled up gear, serves me well when I have to attack the stitching that's come lose on the zips on the cockpit canopy hatches, and elsewhere.
