Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

Ya'll need to put a Windex on your car antenna.
I had one for years until a Force 9 bit of road took it off.

I stare at the water outside my front door and practice docking and undocking with just the sails, and the boats not even at the pier

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

Ha! I thought I was the only one that had that problem while driving. I remember last May when I took my sailing classes, after being on the water for about eight hours, I was driving home on the mass pike. As I would change lanes I kept waiting for the boom to set on the other side of the boat. It never did

I have been to the Anapolis Boat Show & Ft Lauderdale/Miami bot show, both worth going to. I would love to get to the strictly Sail in ChiTown at some point as well.

Pardon my spelling, my spell check seems to be on the fritz.

Tacking the car...different strokes for different folks I guess.

We all get it differently. Wait till you get a boat. It's all over then. Total loss of sanity.

Thanks hellosailor, sounds like a good idea. I've been golfing for years (my scores wouldn't show it). I told my wife once I start sailing I'll probably never see a golf course again, I want to be on the water!

Hello from Rochester, my stepson is awaiting an acceptance letter from RIT, we're keeping our fingers crossed! I can't imagine how bad I'll be once I have a s/v. I know it will have to be at least a 24' or more with galley, head and a berth because I'll probably be banned from the house due to incessant sailing talk.

Buy some cheap golf clubs, hide your sailig gear in the bottom og the bag, and tell them you'll be out golfing for the day. Everybody's happy.

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

I used to get pissed off at all the idiots that go down the road weaving from lane to lane cutting other drivers off, now I realize they are in sail boat land and are just tacking. A word of warning though....don't hit the auto pilot so you can pee out the window.
