...for MY health & wellness...

I can’t one afford,

Just sometimes I want to go toward,

The shore to enjoy shopping at a boat store,

Its fun and keeps me from being bored…


Some don’t of this desire understand,

They find it, or so it seems, bland,

So alone I get to do my fun thing,

But alone is & has been my life in general,

Afterwards though, Ruffie & I can go walking in the sand…


So out today we will go,

To climb onto boats & look at them below,

The kind I like the most are for “others”, not apropos,

Mako’s of the cuddy cabin variety,

And Bayliners of the fly bridge type,

But all are for me just personal propriety…

I agree with Tom's assessment. This poem is seaworthy.

Aah - to sleep - perchance to DREAM ...

Cap'n Joisey beltin' out a "Welcome Aboard, Maties!" - put me on your passenger list, along with your Bros - plenty of Coors - n' several 1/2 gal jugs of Blackberry Brandy fer warmin' of the Innards - PEEWEE strummin' a Gee-Tar - n' us all YODELIN' ...

P.S. pack plenty of canned SPAM, with the little Key on the side - so's we git sum victuals n' protein - down the Inland Waterway - stoppin' occasionally at Ports of call where RED lights are Flashin' - RED RIGHT RETURNIN' -

Boyz n' Buoyz - Boyz n' Booze - BE-BOP A-LULA, SHE'S MY BABY ---

Not a bad moniker fer our Lady of the Sea ...

Sand - Sea - Salty Air - n' some Saltines fer the Landlubbers too!


gotta go now n' hurry up n' PACK .... TomKat.

Buy a new Bayliner, and invite your two Ed brothers on a trip down to the Keys. And make sure it's big enough for several critters to come along. (And stock it with plenty of Coors and Jack Black.)
