well ya gotta be careful who u smile at though.
one time my sister and I and hubby's were in a bar, this older lady looks over at our table and my sister smiles at her and the lady says "what are u smiling at, u don't know me" lol lol
the funny thing, my sister is the mildest, easy going person I know, so unlike me, so this just floored her, she didn't know what to say. and normally I would be the one to come to her rescue but it was so funny I couldn't think and just laughed my silly head off, which in turn cracked all of us up.
so in the end, this lady gave us something to talk and laugh about, even all these years later. I guess smiing is a good thing no matter what.
:)
nice to see u here Angel!
THANK YOU, I will Be Grateful to be able to sit a CHAT, Thank You Again!!!...:)

<quoted text>Good morning Tony :) Best of luck mate. It is funny but you see so many boats with the inflated collar around them and you never see them here
Cheers Dennie - I'll beat this, depend on it.

I suspect from your description you mean RIBs (stands for Rigid Inflatable Boats), which appear to have the inflated collar around them. Not particularly suited to rivers, but very stable in open seas and go very fast (up to 50-60 knots: around 75 mph for the big ones). The do have a market in the US, but the preference out there tends to be the larger rigid hulled boats, particularly amongst the fishermen, as inflatable tanks and hooks are not necessarily good bedfellows!

Thank you for the warmth in this greeting Dear Rose....
Wishing you happiness each and every day....:)
Hi Lady Eleanor...
Those wishes go straight back to you...
I hope that you have had a really nice day and that you will have a peaceful and relaxing evening.....
It got a bit warm here today with the high hitting 89..
But the warmth has it's benefits.. My muscles and bones really like the warmth..
:o)
I really gave myself a work out yesterday.. I installed a small air conditioner ( 5,000 BTU ), Cut the shaggy lawn and then set to trimming the 14 foot long, 5 foot tall Burning Bush Hedge.. That was the killer.. I'm only 5 foot 6 inches tall on my best day...hahahaha Thankfully I won't have to do that again for a good while..
I have my veggie garden planted and I'm growing the same as last year.. the change being I have 4 different kinds of tomato... 4 Big Beef, 2 Lemon Boys (<<Yellow) and 2 Better Boys and an unknown number of Cherry tomatoes that self seeded from last year.. 2 Burpless Cucumbers and 2 Green Bell peppers.. I also have some Cantalope that I started from seeds but I don't know if they will make it or not..
So today I've been doing as little as I can get away with and only working in the house..
Our weather forecast is for the mid to high 80's all week long with a chance of pop up thunder storms..
Looks Like SUMMER Has Arived!...
I hope that all is well with you and yours.. and that you have enjoyed a day as beautiful as the one I've had here.. Sending you all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))

The First of my Tea roses to bloom was Rio Samba.. Two blooms opened up over night...

When is boating 'season' over there Tony? Folks here start getting the boats out of dry dock and prepping for the lakes the end of April, beginning of May and start pulling em back in mid-September.

A little longer season than yourselves over here.

Generally, if you're on a swinging mooring (i.e. not in a marina berth or alongside a pontoon), the insurance boys want the boat lifted out of the water from end of October to the end of March, because of the risk of gales. That is the quieter season. I have a marina berth, so I just lift for a month in February/March to dry the boat out, anti-foul the bottom and do any maintenance that is needed (sea cocks etc) that has to be done when the boat is dry. Have taught courses in December - not the warmest time to on the water! Somje people stay in all year and simply dry out against a wall to clean the bottom.

Having said that, the boat is going up for sale as some life changes necessary with my condition.. Once clear, have my eye on something a little smaller.

I'm sorry you'll be giving up the boat. I can tell from your posts it's something that really holds your interest.

It's a lot of work to maintain and the cost of petrol/gas at least here is ridiculously expensive. During the season Lake Michigan is so crowded you can't go that far.

I'm not a boater myself, although I enjoy being on them & I love the water. I just know some people who are serious boaters like you so I've learned a bit over the years.

I look forward to continuing to live vicariously through your boating and racing stories.

Be well & stay well buddy.
:-)

Good Day Everyone..

enjoyed hearing from y'all this morning and I
will be back later, as I have half an hour to
get oneself ready,(am straight out of the garden where I have been wrestling with a rambling rose)
and get two cats ready to take to the Vets.
Nothing wrong, just checks and meds.

So have to dash as the Vet will be after my bacon if I am late for my appointment! lol
