Actually I feel so bad for those horses. My lady's family lives in the poorest county in the country. Since they can't afford to feed them, they are left to fend for themselves. They are starving. It breaks my heart.

Re: One Lucky Guy

Oops,

I digress the last post had nothing to do with sailing. Just going with the flow.

You never know CSY man! My husband said ,26 years ago, he was sailing with or without me! I have finally said, last year, those words! We are doing the steps to make it happen ,hopefully in a year. Property listed and sailing courses booked. Children out of the house and last of the pets gone. Early retirement here we come!!

In my case it was a compromise. Sell everything I own (the boat), get a job (a job???) buy a house, put some money in the bank. Once the house is paid for and our future secure then I can buy a boat and we can go sailing on what's left.

Re: One Lucky Guy

Good to hear Rich, and contgrats to both of you. We'll have to round up the area CFers to celebrate! A sail to Anclote Key for the handfasting ceremony perhaps?

Re: One Lucky Guy

I'm sort of in the same position... I had talked about it as something we might do someday, after the kids are gone (in 6 or 7 years). My wife convinced me to throw caution to the wind, get rid of everything, and do it next year.

Re: One Lucky Guy

Wife and I retired in May 2015 and bought our Beneteau 461 in August 2015. We are currently planning a sail from Newport to Ft Lauderdale - renting out the house for income as we travel. So far so good! Life is good ! Best wishes and fair winds to everyone!

Congratulations Rich! The joy in your post is just lovely .

Best bet it to celebrate all the anniversaries - meeting/first date, moving in together, engagement & wedding.

Four anniversaries a year is about right for us. I love celebrating, particularly when there is so much to be thankful for .

Yeah I know for sure.
We had a blue water well equipped cruising boat for 14 years and sailed during vacations and times of un-employment. 30 short cruises to the Florida Keys, 27 longer trips to the Bahamas. Wife endured it but got nervous if no land was in sight and always longed to sail home and "get it over with". Good sport she is, but not her cup of tea, city girl and all.
Ended up selling the CSY 2 years ago as it was being used less and less.
Sure I could sail solo or with friends into the sunset, but not the same.
I was a full-time live aboard 30 years ago with a different wife and a different boat so I should not complain too much. Kind of been there, done that in my youth.
Would like to do it again but it is not in the cards.

Spoken like a true female.

Not many males remember when they first met, nor when they moved together, they might remember the engagement and they know they better not forget the wedding.

Now give us some credit and say one out of four is not bad.

On a side note, I collaborated with my son in law so that I would be babysitting 3 out of my 5 grand kids so that he could take his wife out for an anniversary date this past Friday. My daughter was very surprised when I showed up on the doorstep.

They don't get a chance to get out much just for themselves, so I thought it was a good gift to give them.

Re: One Lucky Guy

Andy,

When Erma first started staying at the house, she would bring a grocery bag or two of clothes and stuff. They would be stashed next to the couch. Eventually there were a lot of bags. Since the house has four bedrooms I simply told her to pick a closet. Fifteen years later all the closets are full. 😜🍺. So there is no exact date, it was January. Our birthdays are also in January. Makes everything simple.

I realize this post is not sailing related and only cruising related by the slimmest thread. If needed, by forum rules, feel free to delete it.

Rich

LOL.... moving in by stealth. The same thing happened to my best friend, and they ended up being married for 27 or so years.

The GREAT part is that Erma is now looking at a lifestyle of cruising. Very cool, and you are one lucky person.

Re: One Lucky Guy

I thought I said that in my initial post. 😎

Lots of errands to run, quick trip to boat to help another sailor, flog the mechanic to get my #<>€*+? Engine running.

Thanks for the support.

Rich

Quite lucky you are..but, you've had her for 15 years- time to give someone else the luck. I have one to trade that has very little interest in living aboard.
