Smile And then there were three...

Hello!

My name is Lisa and we have a 42' Formosa Trawler - Yay! We are going to be living aboard soon and I wanted to pick up some knowledge and tips from other Trawler folks.

Post from our Craigslist - Seeing as though we are moving aboard soon, it's now a "make me move" sale price, but wanted to put some pics up for you all.

Wifey B: Sorry, I couldn't resist, one of the worst songs in history but people keep recording it.

Ok, and then there were three? Three what?

Welcome aboard.

BandB, Oh my gosh! I actually watched the whole video - some people start singing that song to me when I meet them - lol.

There were 2 people who have a Formosa Trawlers on here when I signed up and now there are 3.

Also, we are down to 3 living on the boat.

Lisa - Not Julie

Wifey B: I remember hearing that song when I was a kid and thinking "how dumb to have a song about who you are not." it's like a restaurant long ago named "Franklin's Off Friendly" or something like that. How does it help me to know where a restaurant is not? At least it wasn't a song about Lisa.

We have a close friend named "Lisa" so I only think good thoughts about the name.

Hi Wifey B,

I thought it was a strange song too, but that restaurant name sounds even weirder.

Hope your having a great day!

Lisa

Wifey B: I thought Fred wasn't there. False advertising if he was there? Why didn't they say who was there? Who is Fred anyway? Well, they have the Princess of Wales Theater. Are they that confused? I mean if it was at least near Wales, I could understand better.

I do understand the baseball stadium there, Rogers Centre. That's the place with the hotel and rooms overlooking the field and long ago in it's first year they got a good shot of a couple on tv. Then they started warning guests to close the drapes.

I'm glad the tomato is red and they don't call it notbluetomato or something?
