Wink Very fortunate man

I am a very fortunate man; my wife is not a keen sailor! We purchased our yacht because my darling liked the colour and just after an excellent meal with 2 bottles of wine. Standing on the pontoon at the Southampton boat show I heard the words from my darling, go on, buy her. My darling is also a snob, if the yacht had been 38ft there would be no chance of tempting my darling out for a sail. My daring loves posing, if the yacht looks tatty at the end of the season then no expense should be spared to keep her in tip top shape.
How Lucky am I?

Hey Mike, welcome to SN dude.

I'd say you're doing just fine in the darling arena.

Post some pictures! Of the darling, the boat, whatever.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

Does your darling want you to stock your fridge with beer and pastrami sandwiches and invite your buddies over? If so, I'm available...buddy.

Your darling would not happen to be Clementine would it? If so, make sure she wears a PDF. That is unless shes got a pretty sister.

"Drove she ducklings to the water
Ev'ry morning just at nine,
Hit her foot against a splinter,
Fell into the foaming brine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Ruby lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles, soft and fine,
But, alas, I was no swimmer,
So I lost my Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

How I missed her! How I missed her,
How I missed my Clementine,
But I kissed her little sister,
I forgot my Clementine."

Just a couple of verses from an old classic folk song...

"Never pray for an easier life - pray to be a stronger person! Never pray for tasks equal to your power - pray for power equal to your tasks. Then doing your work will be no miracle - you will be the miracle." Phillips Brooks

Well that settles it then, mister. You're not fortunate. You're whipped!! Does your boat have "drapes" and "doilies"? Maybe pictures of "darling" everywhere? Are you allowed to stand up to pee? She doesn't make you use a coaster for cryin' out loud, does she????

No, Lucky is when SHE buys the boat and SHE pays for the maintenance. But, you're luckier than most.
