Non boaters-you got to love them

So I was taking part in a zoom meeting the other day. The leader was gong around the group and giving a short bio on each of us.

When he gets to me he says:

Now Joe is a real character. He does this, he does that, I've know him for 20 years now..... But (and now I'm quoting him) "the main reason that he is a real character is that he is homeless!! He lives (wait for it....) on a BOAT.

Hmmm....homeless, yup. and proud of it!!!

I'm really looking forward to being completely homeless. Maybe I'll put a coffee can out on the dock for donations.
