Send rum, and coconuts

For the last few years, he's mentioned (though with great reluctance) a large project that desperately needs doing to the boat.


The last few trips off, I noticed an increase in supplies being purchased.
I noticed this in the checkbook.
I don't like him in the checkbook. No good can come of it.

Sunday, he seemed antsy.
He had this funny, faraway look in his eyes.
He was distracted.

Next thing I knew, the boat looked like this:

There used to be a roof there.

There needs to be a roof there. That's where all the electronics live.

Wait...there's the beginning of a new roof.

And that means it's time for reinforcements. That's Doug. He's a helper-dude.
We like helper-dudes.

Old, thousand pound roof.

Cut up into small manageable pieces.

Solving world crises.

When they should be working.

And I'm having palpitations because the boat is out of commission, and I have no way to get my kids off the island in the middle of the night if there's an emergency, and what if I suddenly have a craving for Finelli's eggplant on focaccia...

I said earlier, it's kinda like being stranded on a desert island without the coconuts or rum stash.

Think calm thoughts.

  1. Everyone needs a helper dude! (Well, I know I do.) DIY is challenging. So how many expletive deletives did the building of the roof provoke?
