Miss Woody Boater Says, Please Help Keep Us Subscription Free!
For the record, we are not a proud group. In fact if I need to pull out Jerry Lewis and have Sarah Mclachlan sing a song to old abandoned wood boats, we would. But we will spare you all that. So instead we introduce you to Erika Simmons, the first ever official “Miss Woody Boater”. She will help host this fund raising effort.. And thanks to Bob Kays we have lots of Miss Woody Boater to share this week. Oh, and there is a boat in there someplace. The boat is “Shazam” a stunning 1948 23′ Ventnor and belongs to long ..loooong time fellow Woody Boater Don Ploenter
So you ask, why? Well, we run on sponsorships and donations. Like PBS.. Think about it, we deliver news everyday, photos, live reports all free to you the reader. Why Free? Because its critical that new folks to the lifestyle can access information without paying dues, or a subscription. It’s open 24/7 and free. And now we even have a Miss Woody Boater! And she says Donate.. So.. Donate with the Donate button oon the right of the page.
Where does the money go? Gas, lodging and web hosting.. I know, its shocking, and according to our CPA, more expensive than owning a boat.. So thanks in advance for your generous donations. Now more Miss Woody Boater.
Glad to help out! Last time someone suggested donating what I would spend on a quart of varnish. That seemed like a good idea, but I think I will add to that this time.
PS: Maybe you could figure out a way for my computer to put out a varnish smell when I am on the WB’er site and that would help feed my addiction.
Do you accept non-cash donations as well? Perhaps wives, children, non-running boats, or a pound of bacon?
Send it to Edgecomb Maine for me.
Apple Wood or Hickory Please.
Are you officially 501c3 yet? Maybe I can write it off as entertainment.
We do accept bacon.. Since I have to bring it home everynight. Thanks for all the donations coming in..
Done. Cheapest boat bill I’ve ever seen.
Next donation is to the Red Cross. Take note all, they are still urgently short of blood and platelets. Yes, it hurts somewhat. But you are saving another person’s life. Small price to pay for the greatest gift of all.
I’ll bring the bacon to Skaneateles and do the Paypal thing today. If you are coming to Skaneateles, based on this weekend’s temps I would spend the donations on Faribault wool blankets and maybe a propane heater for the Woodyboater tent. Perhaps a badger hair snow brush to clean off Suzy (the boat) each morning as well.
Badgers…? We ain’t got no badgers… We don’t need no badgers. I don’t have to show you any stinking badgers!
It is comforting to know I am not the only one who forgot to take his meds this morning.
M Fine, are you doing anything in life or are you milking that knee to get disability?? If it’s that bad maybe my Doc could do a two’fer in Nov. on my knee replacement at a discounted rate. Then we could set around and swill food and read WB high on per&*cet’s all day long.
Happy, Happy, Happy :):):)
Rehab will be that I have to get Purple Haze ready to go this spring.
I am back at work full time. One of the benefits of sitting in front of a computer for a living is you don’t need to be able to walk to pay the bills! Downside is I am off the drugs completely. I guess I will have to sell the extra pills on craigslist to recover my deductible.
As for the two for one knee special…I already need two knee and two ankle replacements so I think I’ll get the volume discount all on my own. Problem is I need to wait for this injury to heal before we even go down that road.
FWIW, it turns out this injury was a fully torn quadriceps tendon, with substantial damage going well up my thigh. The docs keep commenting on how surprising the level of damage was, like that will make me feel better. A bit over a week post surgery and I am doing much better and I am am far more mobile than I expected. I WILL be at Skaneateles baring any new surprises.
I am perplex, shall it be wooden nickels or plastic card.
