Covid Hits Global HQ. WTH, WTF, WTC, WTHIGO, UGH.


Like clock work, COVID hits home. Yup, me and one other, no one else, not even MR B. I have been cleaning and prepping up, and this. How/ Why? Really? Right before a show? I survived 3 F’n years with nuthn, been boosted, preached, wear masks..ish now.. and this! I cant even blame the Chinese Wombats anymore with all the variants. I will be missing my own reception party at HQ, and not be at the show that will take place partially at HQ. Now and forever known as The Global show,  And now, for the first time in Woody Boater history, yes, over 5,929 stories.. I am going to say this.. Ready.. Here it comes. Get your kids out of the room.. You were warned.






There it is. I have been holding back for close to 15 years. I am done. how? I mean, this week? Reception Friday, Show Saturday, a film crew is using HQ for a shoot, STAY TUNED, and then off to LA for a week long shoot for work. DEAD! Just me in my bedroom alone like its 20 outside and WTF! WTH? Wait.. I am going to be alone, and I can go boating… WAIT, no I cant, all the boats are in the SHOW.. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

And yes! One would think I would share another type of commutable disease with “Him” Ya the guy smok’n a tampon! For the record it’s cloudy as to were we got it, but it was at the same time for sure. Everyone else. NUTHn.

All kidding aside, I am feeling fine now. A couple days of bad sleep, and a sore throat. And zero energy. The zero energy part is the killer for me. It’s like I can only get around 12 hrs of work done now?

    So since you have been hanging out in the little podunk town of Reedville, where the ice cream shop down the road seems to be the center of your universe, only seeing Suzy, Wayne Bomb, and Mr B and I had just traveled down the east coast from Maine I figured that I had infected Reedville, but as you point out the timing seems identical.

    Maybe it was the Strawberry 🍓 ice cream.

    Get well soon. I had the lack of energy when I had it also
    On another note, looking at today’s banner I can see that you need some Evinrude motors to put in front of the sign. But does look good as is

    For gods sake Troy, do not blame the Strawberry ice Cream. Its the one thing left I can sneak out and enjoy.

    Matt says:

    Oh! And we work very hard to keep it a podunk town. Mr Big City from Maine? man.. WOW, that escalated quick. And so the blame game starts. TAMPON SMOKER!

      Damn Matt this covid has got you testy! When I had it, no symptoms. Just tested positive. I got a lot of things done around home. Get well soon.

    On second thought we probably picked it up at Dollar General along with Sandi’s $3 bottle of wine.

    Matt says:

    HEY! That dollar General is our go to grocery store. Where the old lady gets my Spagetio’s and moon pies. And Mr Smarty wine pants. MOUNTAIN DEW is the real wine of choice.

      Matt – you know how much I dislike it when you beat around the bush. If you have something to say, just get it out in the open. Just to set the record straight, the sign outside the store may read Dollar General, to us locals, it’s known as the “mall”. And another thing, why did you throw Troy under the boat? Just sayin’.

    Ok, now that I have been up for 3.5 hours it feels like it’s time for a nap.

    Matt, sorry you’ll be out of commission during the show. Feel better. Since you will be out of the show, I will take one for the team and come out and drive Wecatchem and Sweet Pea. Its not because I want to, oh no, but its only for the community. Someone has to give those boats a workout and show the adoring crowds what those boats can do.

    Wow Matt I feel your pain……after Molly-O’s exit into Reedville she missed the 100th CC bash and I was pissed to say the least.
    Get well soon my friend.

    Cripes. I got nothin’. In fact, I’m sitting here at Walgreens just now waiting on the next fancy new booster strain shot and a flu shot too.
    I’m way beyond my child bearing years, so bring it on Skippy. I’ll take the pneumonia shot in another two weeks.
    Matt, good bourbon at night with the Strawberry Ice Cream and a moon pie chaser can help you solve the world’s problems.
    However, if I were you right now, I’d be one pissed off SOB too…….

    Rabbit says:

    So sorry, Matt. Major bummer. Since all three of your boats are committed to the show couldn’t you just rent a pontoon, circle in front of the Railway, and holler instructions?

      Picturing Matt on a pontoon, shouting instructions through a megaphone. You win the web today, Rabbit!

    Be thankful, at least you don’t have monkey pox. Nurse Nancy said she can come over and give you a sponge bath if you’re feeling overheated.

    Get Well, Matt – I came up from AZ in time for the Seattle Yacht Club Opening Day celebration, got “Sindbad” cleaned up, in the water, over to our yacht club and came down with Covid the next day. Missed the whole damn weekend… 🙁 This will pass, but the timing sucks!

    I can’t believe you folks are still falling for this covid scam. Its a cold. Maybe don’t visit a nursing home, or a cancer patient while you have it, but thats what you would do with any sickness. To quote Ferris Bueller, “Be a man, take some Pepto-Bismol, get dressed and come on over here, I’m tired of this stuff.”

      Sleepless, this is not an Illness to take lightly. I’ve had too many friends DIE from COVID. You avoid the doctor visit. And YOU will be sleeping MORE (permanent) in Seattle. Now go get your shot with the tracker in it

      STEVEN A LAPKIN says:

      Ditto on a never-failing Chicken Soup cure all which cured all ills in my household thanks to a very caring mom! Your current situation will pass, as you know. WE all look forward to knowing of your full recovery! Time heals. Thinking of ya, Mr. Smith !! 🙏❤️ Need anything? S

    Unless you’re feeling totally down and out, You can sit in your boat… several feet off shore, and watch the show at an appropriate distance. If you have a bull horn, you can even direct the action. Just pretend you are Mark Rydell on the set of the Golden Pond!

    Get better soon.
