Let’s Start Sausage Season With A Little Taste

Who’s the real Bitch? Hey Hey! I asked the Woody Boater HR dept. And it’s technically a correct question. So Back off!

If we can have 35 comments on an old can of beer, it’s for sure that time of year! No, not winterize time? no not the holidays? Last gasp.. None of that. It’s the start of Sausage Season. Yup. A winter of lips and snouts of one photo stories that are not big enough to be a story on their own. But together can be rather filling. I don’t have a full collection of scraps yet, but its Sunday, and cold in some areas. So here goes. mmmmm

I have so many questions. The first one, has anyone called the FBI on the owner of this seller on ebay?

Thats a 1962 Corvair BTW.. So much for your argument that you need a new truck to haul your boat!

This is a vintage card that is in some Japanese chocolate for kids.I also have questions..

Suddenly in command? Quick dear get out the film projector! I wonder if Syd is in this film.

At first I thought.. OH GAD ZOOKS, No Masks, What in the hell has happened to us all! mmm I wonder if Mable is in there?

Just a reminder that 1994 was about 27 years ago.. 27! My god.. It seems like yesterday. This T is on ebay BTW. I am to lazy to give you a link.

Also on ebay. Generic cool cushion.

I did some googleing, this is in Washington State.

Thats it. Sausage Sunday.

    The USCG Auxiliary has actually brought that course back again. I am told thatIt’s now designed for people that do not have a boat but they go boating with other people to give them basics on what to do if something happens to the operator of the vessel. I still have my NY state course book. Make sure Make shore that I took back in 69. I also have the certificate from it

      I still have mine and my young boatmans operating certificate. My Dad who was very active in the Jones Beach Power Squadron taught the course at our Beach Club every spring. If you wanted to operate a motorboat on your own you had to have it and you only had to be 10 years old.

    Towing with a Corvair – I have to wonder about having enough of the front tires on the ground to steer!

    “Suddenly in Command” is a guide book for first officers who have just successfully lead a mutiny. I think it was very popular with wives.

      I towed with both my 65 Corvair coupe and my 69 convertible. Had to watch what you were towing. The hitch was a flat bar that had two bolts holding it under the bumper. I still have a hitch for one. Great cars

    I have one of those 1994 shirts from Hessel. Has it really been that long ago?

    my 62 Corvair (“the American Porsche”…not) was called the squirrel…
    among its many accomplishments: Had one rear axel pull out and pass me slowing down for a stoplight.
    Knocked the rear engine mount off dragging ass…several times…eventually wearing down the oil pan until it leaked…more than usual that is.
    Stuffed gym socks in the heater outlets to avoid CO poisoning off the leaky manifolds.
    Painted the front end black once, thinking it cool on a white car…drove to North Carolina and not a flake of that paint arrived.
    Retired it to a place we had in the woods, backed into trees to snap the doors off, put chains on the tires and had a mud wagon. Rode so low the accelerator linkage caught on a root and disappeared…not a problem…attached a seat belt to the cross over bar between the two carbs and gave her the gas by holding the webbing in my teeth and leaning forward.
    Ahhhh. sausage….what would Ralph Nader say!
    John in Va….just back from “Going Boating”

    Nice little Bryant cruiser docking at Harstene Island. That Corvair – powered boat appears to be Glasspar Avalon, must have been licensed to Wayne. 🙂
