I Suffer From Lackaboatrideitus.
One of the advantages of not being burdened by the proper use of the English language, not to mention, any language, is you get to make up your own words. And today is such another day. introducing, Lackaboatrideitus. This is an affliction that causes anxiety, frustration over dumb things and general frustration building up that accumulates over time that has been spent in meetings, and on dry land.
You know those moments where you roll your eyes, and stick your head down and grab your head with both hands. And a nice boat ride, sniff of warm varnish and slight odor of gas and oil just wipes away any negativity. And for that brief moment, you are free. Free of worry, free of phone calls, emails and politics. You are just out there in pure harmony with mans greatest creation, a boat, blended with gods greatest creation, Water. All roaring in harmony, all stopping time. That is the only known cure to Lackaboatrideitus.
The good news, is there is a support group from those suffering this. And we meet daily and sniff our computers and phones for the wiff of mahogany, and in just a month-ish or so we are all going to meet in person, and soak ourselves in the warm waters of lake Dora, and take a daily fix of golden fried jalapeno popper pills! Dang… Sorry.. I needaboatide! NOW!
Good pictures, Its coming soon, I have my reservations for Mt Dora and am ready for some wood varnish and sunshine. Its a great spring trip to get your year started out.
The photos alone will hold me over till April.
I think you misspelled that word in the header.
Awesome photos…. 🏆🏆
Matt, you need vitamin “W” not D. And I need some vitamin MBL.
I feel the same effect with the RC models, what a pleasure to see evolve an old runabout gilded wood varnish and also the pleasure of making his own model when we can not afford to make or restore a size. Friends of France.
That is one lucky doll!
Great Photos on this nasty February morning. Thanks!
Yep – Cold, gray, fog, freezing rain coming in followed by arctic temps. and the furnace crapped out last night. We all need a boat ride right now!
Following the news this past week is seems there are a lot of people in Virginia who could use a boat ride! Or maybe if they had spent more time in boats and less in black face they wouldn’t have ended up so stressed to begin with. Either way, I think Virginians need to find a way to get on the water ASAP.
As someone once said, “I feel your pain…” After the deep freeze last week, we bounced all the way up to the mid 40’s last weekend. I just had a stop into my old Marina I once owned and hug my baby…
that’s a 1968 Chris Craft Connie? behind my Coronado
As I told my wife on our honeymoon, “it’s not the size of the ship or the length of the cruise, it’s the motion of the ocean”.
Do you two do a lot of cruising?
Among the Ice and low temps really good to see Lake Dora comments
Thanks Matt. Woodyboater doing what it does best. Thanks The best birthday present.
Here’s a warm summer evening hug for all of you (including myself) who are suffering! 🙂
