When I was younger I would have been jealous, but now that I'm older my boat turns me on more...lol

We named our boat after my wife (my nickname for her), and she loves to get out sailing as much as possible. But just the other day she uttered the magic words - or at least the promising magic precursor to the ultimate magic words: "I can see living on a boat."

Of course, remaining cool and calm on the outside, I reply, "Yah, I think you'd like the lifestyle." Meanwhile, I'm jumping up and down with excitement on the inside...

Sorry all, not trying to boast, just grateful to have her. I would hope you all feel the same way about your parter, if you have one. If not, the possibiliites truly are endless. I tried to post pictures earlier, but they were too big. Once I resize them I'll post.

Are you referring to your boat or your wife??

MJR,
I'm envious!
I wish I could convince my wife that a big night on the town meant dinner at "The Waffle House".

But brucey, you know it's all about choices and compromises. After buying such high-end yachts, they needed to cut back on dining expenses.

When I met my wife she had never been on a sailboat. Over the years she had learned to handle the boat and has earned her Master's License. She truly enjoys the boat.

A few years ago, In the spring, we were in our local CVS drug store. She was in one aisle and I was in another. I hear a Lady greet my wife. A little small talk was exchanged and I hear the lady ask my wife with a tone "Does that husband of your's still have that boat of his." My wife answers "Yes, WE still have the boat." Then the lady says "That must cost allot of money that could be better used elsewhere." Now my nose was out of joint.

I hear my wife say with a very direct tone "You know, My husband does not run around. He does not gamble. He treats the kids very well and I don't give a damn what he spends on the boat. Good day, Marge!"

Yep, thats my wife, you go girl!

Blue,
Actually , that's what I'm envious of. I'm boating on a budget and dining on the cheap.
Opps, don't want to be accused of hijacking....

Hey now this is Kentucky and here Waffle House is fine dining. Actually, this was taken at 3am as we were on our way home from a Ball in Cincinatti and the girls were torn between this and the Flying J truck stop. Remember gentlemen you'll score big points with your ladies if you go ballroom dancing with them.
