Man, if my wife sees your cat-a-log I'll never hear the end of it. We have three moggies. On a cat. LOL.

Love the site. Very nice graphics. And funny. Always a good combination.

What do we do all day?

Thats not an unreasonable question. Many folks just have no Idea or Imagination. I tell them I do the same as you do.

-Get up in the morning (The sunrise is the alarm clock)
- Coffee and breakfast
- Take the kids to daycare (Take dog to the beach)
- Go to work (Boat work, Laundry, etc.)
- Lunch break (local pub or beach)
- Go to the grocery store (Go fishing/Diving or go ashore or both)
- Come home (Boat) chat with the neighbors (Other boats)
- Cocktails at 5 on the porch (Cockpit or the neighbors cockpit)
- Dinner with the family (Wife, dog)
- Watch an entertaining "movie" ( Charter boats trying to anchor/dock)
- Early to bed after setting the "House" alarm (Dog in cockpit)

-Everyonce in a while you need to take the "car" to the shop (Put the dink motor on the rail and fix carburator, scrub the dink bottom)

Pretty much the same boring existance you have on the dirt.

With regard to "How can I afford it?) I used less than 400 gallons of fuel to cruise 3000+ miles last winter. If I had stayed home it would have taken twice that to heat the house. Most other expenses are about the same (food etc) . Using "Cruiser Logic we saved a bundle!

No job? well I wasn't that good at it anyway!

Spooked to all hell

Ok, I am shook up. I just saw both of yours "Before and After" picture sets.

Holy Smokes.
Holy Smokes.
Holy Smokes.

Those really scared me -- as in "Truly and how the hell was it possible???"

Whatever caused the After to look like After will add years to your lives.

What a testament.

How did you do it????
