OK, Who Left Their Tidy Whities In The Fridge?
Thanks to all our pals for showed up in record numbers to the 3rd annual Woody Boater Virtual Holiday Party. It’s always fun to see who is there… and still alive. We are trying to clean up the mess today, so if you left anything around, we will put into the lost and found. We found a model K stuck in the tub, and “someone” thought it would be funny to 5200 the windows shut. The good news is that they dont leak anymore. And the chucklehead that thought it would be funny to put a bilge pump in the toilet. VERY FUNNY, Hardee har har! No one touched the frozen wieners by the way? Which brings up the shot still burned into my retinas.. Those Tidy Whities! WET tidy whites. It’s hard to shock me these days, that one did it. I am still laughing. BUT they did leave a par in the fridge. Which reminds me.. Anyone want any free beer, butter and eggs? Its all yours…in fact… want a fridge? Anyway, thanks for a great party. Matt & Texx
Wait….. what time is it???!! What day is it? Ive been in Australia, just got home and not only did I miss my own company party I missed the WB party. Ahhhhh crap.
Happy holidays everybody from New Zealand.
My truck is all wet….. Matt ,Texx were you at the launch ramp? Ohhhhh my head I feel like the header shot wher is that from?
I think this photo was from one of Bob Speltz’s ‘Real Runabouts’ books and showed the aftermath of a terrific storm on Lake Minnetonka, MN in the mid-’60’s…
The picture in the book said it was Minnetonka Boat Works in Wayzata, a major-league Chris-Craft dealership in the region and the place where my previous 1955 18′ Sea Skiff was sold new. (I was spooked when I thought I spotted her in the chaotic wreckage…I’ll never know if it was actually her!)
Great party, by the way…anyone up for brunch & bloodies?
Oh, god…there she is…maybe?
She’s lying under a heavy wooden ladder and sandwiched between a Continental and a couple Rivieras…damage looks light…wonder if that’s how her propeller shoe got bent?
That picture causes me pain every time I see it. That was quite a night of storms in the Minneapolis area. I was 7 years old and I remember it like it was last week.
The photo is of the Deephaven storage facility across the lake from the Wayzata Boatworks
Any idea on how I can get a copy of that photograph, like a real copy to frame and hang on the wall? What would be the newspaper to contact or could I be so crazy to ask is the photographer alive?
You could try the StarTribune. I’m not sure where that photo was first published. Search Lake Minnetonka tornado for more information on that tornado outbreak. There is an out of print picture book that looks interesting but I have not seen one to know what is in it. May 6 1965 was the date of the storm.
Cliff, How dare you post a picture of Ted Kennedy’s truck!
Please make the spinning stop. Darn I’ve got another lampshade next to me. The biggest question though is how I ended up under the cover of Alex’s XK19. I don’t even know where Hessel is! Now the walk of shame down that long dock.
I wonder if Alex keeps any aspirin around.
Are you kidding? I’ve got three kids. My life is one giant Excedrin commercial. We’ve rigged the ice dispenser on the fridge to pop the stuff out like Pez.
Last time I saw my driver, Clooney, he was heading to a bar with Holmes and the monkey. We are now looking for Cindy Crawford. When last saw her she was with a man wearing orange shoes, getting into a big orange suv , looking shell shocked. Apparently he was telling her all about zipper pulls for a boat top, NJ German deli food and what kind of varnish to use.
If you see them , say “barn find” to the guy in the orange shoes, that should distract him long enough for Cindy to get away.
A little fresh squeezed orange juice and a couple of aspirin should do the trick. If not, pull a Denzel Washington move from Flight, and call in John Goodman and his bag of magic wakeup powder.
Sorry I didn’t make it to the party…I hitched a ride from this guy, and now I NEVER want to leave (Alan Harper style).
Ugh. I had that same reoccurring dream last night. No not the one with Mayer and Holmes and tidy whities and pet elephants.
The other one.
The zombietoons. They kept coming for me.
Anyone seen Byrne? Last I saw, he was hanging out in Miss Lisa, slurring on and on about doing some reproduction boat.
Now THAT is the way an award winning boat should look. Further proof that you can have an excellent boat and still use it!
That’s what I get for giving ridse to guys from Michigan. Miss Lisa will never be the same.
Wow, from the Party Header it is apparent you had valet parking — classy!!!!!! I’m coming next year.
Just looked at the picture in the header…Will the two guys who parked behind my Continental please move them so I can get my boat back in the water and go home…I know it was rude of me to park on the dock…but I’m just not very good at tieing lines……and besides I was late and in a hurry to get to the bar.
I tried to count up how many posts I’ve made between yesterday and today and I’ve run out of fingers and toes. Only one conclusion.
“Hi, my name is Rick and I’m a WoodyBoaterHolic.”
There I admit I have a problem and that I’ve been ignoring my family and hiding in the lampshade closet to post without others knowing.
Rick – Today we nominated you to be our official “Social Director.”
A new name tag is now in the mail… along with one of those hand buzzer party gag gadgets and a new Whoopee Cushion…
I’m both honored and deeply disturbed that I’m depraved enough to even be in the running for this position. Wait, this doesn’t mean I have to take care of the monkey until next year does it?
I think the monkey ran away – so no… (Until further notice)
Some of us needed a little help to stand up this morning.
Someone get this monkey off my back
Anyone seen my sharpies? Oh hey, found Mayer.
I’m confused… The party is over? Not in my woodyboaterville… The party is 24/7 365 in my woodyboaterville…! Pass the beer, chips, reed and prince, 220, 3200, j8c, 5/4 etc…. Remember, it’s a lifestyle.. Party on and smooth wooden boating everyone!
I believe that’s Miss Cavendish from accounting.
At least she passed out on a wooden table, not a fiberglass one. The guys on Woodytable.com are happy.
some things you can never un-see. that was a frightening image. so was the one with all the wrecked boats.
I don’t know about all this wildness…but to rub it in….
I WENT BOATING in a whirlwind on the James River today…..70 degrees 2 hours after the official arrival of winter!
John in Va.
John you make me sick and excited all at the same time.
Not sure why I live as far north as I do. I think we need to talk about bringing American Beauty down to you for the winters enstead of pulling and storing her. That would be great fun.
Try this one. I think that one was too small.
