Re: Boat People Scum
Went ashore the other day to go to grocery store. Had on clean shirt, shorts, and sandals. We had our backpack and rolly cart along with a small bag of trash to toss in the trash can at the store. As I was putting the bag of trash in the can this older woman came out of the store and gave us a look of "I hate you homeless boat people scum!"
I'm trying to figure out how she could tell.
Don, she looked at you but didn't say anything? Seriously?
Maybe she's just a grumpy person. Why would you give it more than a passing thought?
You're out sailing, enjoy the life with all its good and occasionally bad times. If in doubt pour another rum drink.
“The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
