When you watch the old codger you've been married to for a half-century plunge through an open hatch and slam to the deck below, the first thing that probably ran through her mind was "If the old fart killed himself, how will I get home, and where is the life insurance policies?)

I guess she just panicked, which after all these years of being married to me, that's very understandable. I hope she'll be spending lots of time on the Morgan this summer, but her deteriorating physical condition may preclude that. I told her that if she doesn't go sailing this summer I could end up with a couple of French Toast makers. She said if I did that there's a good chance she'll be collecting on that life insurance policy.
