It’s here the big storm we all feared. The good news is that it’s about done and going to be sunny and nice afterwards. In the meantime we are in the shelter. Wooohooo
Did any mobile homes “lose it?”
And speaking of homes, where’s Tommy Holmes (and his pet elephant) this year?
The Century guys had to stay home. Their bilge pumps can’t handle the leaking AND the rain at the same time.
Packed and ready to head North.
So did I pick a good year to miss the show?
Actually it was/is a great show ! Still got to see magnificent wood and varnish (not all plastic, you should know). Downed a pint or two of Harp at O’Keefe’s. Bought way too many t-shirts. Met several friends from home and met Mr. Grant and his wonderful cruiser. BUT I left before the gathering under the big tent because the rain was starting and I had a three hour drive south through the rain. All in all, definitely worth it. Thanks to all, especially those volunteers.
Hi mike, you dry? Me too! How,s Michelle? Misses the elephant I,ll bet. Alex needs a rain bonnet, send him a bit coin or two.
Whats with the weather down there? Same deal at Daytona a month back. BUMMER !
Now let’s get this straight. YOU’RE down there. Even Men at Work agree. The lyrics go: “Do you come from a land down under.” Down under, meaning down under US. (as in U.S.).
That means we’re “UP there.”
And for the record, our toilets flush the right way. Our props turn the right way too.
But you people have Michelle Jenneke. So you win by default.
Boaters should be use to the water/chance of rain but the wind and lightening made things “less pleasant” to say the least. Now back to our regularly scheduled coverage of Matt eating his chicken on a stick (now very soggy).
OK, with that weather, an nice hot order of Shepherd’s Pie AND the black-and-tan should be consumed over at O’Keefe’s. Get shelter! Get fed! Stay warm! Then post pictures.
I found 2fers at Jeremiahs in Dora. Good burgers too.
Go back and read the last story and comments!
Remember water is good. Needed for all types of boating.
Snowing in Cleveland Ohio. Rain would of been much more awesome.
