Most Exciting News... EVER!


This is my brand new used boat! I got it for free, sort of. There were 2 small catches:


1. The engine wasn't running and needed to be fixed (enter Conard)


2. I can keep it, paint it, name it, use it WHENEVER I want, but I always have to remember who the true owner is in case he wants to use it again (which is unlikely)


So catch one is already a thing of the past.. Conard, master of all things mechanical, has this running again for under $30 and in a few hours (and a few skinned knuckles). Look out rivers, I'm on my way directly after the sale!

This is for Amy: "That's my boat."

Dr. Gene Hill saw the boat yesterday and concurred that it is indeed a "sweet ride."

Actually , this boat looks eerily similar to the TidyBowl man's sweet ride.

Your jealousy is seethingly out of control!

Speaking of jealousy, I like the boat Mel was on yesterday in Newport better.

Nora said...

Melanie will be so thrilled to find out she finally has a stalker.. she has always wanted one!

Kids, kids...settle down. Damon and I just bought a $6 million mansion on the ocean here in Newport, and you're ALL invited to come. Beer is on us, too.
