What is the name of your boat and what does it say about you
i would love to hear your thoughts and ideas
My beautiful Ocean Girl, a CD30 was named after a nickname for me formed at the hospital I worked at. They would all say in a comically puzzled way that I was neither fit for city or country life.. What was I fit for? And I'd smile and say the ocean (Ocean Girl was born.
) OG ( the boat) was sold early this year and darn if I can't remember her new name, it was good, I liked it.
My husbands boat, and now my boat, is called Rain Dog. one definition is a dog caught in the rain, with its whole trail washed away by the water
. As we are very much nomads, this kinda apeals to us.
Brian is a Tom Waits fan, so it originated from this song
Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine
With all the Rain Dogs
Taxi, we'd rather walk.
Huddle a doorway with the Rain Dogs
For i am a Rain Dog, too.
Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
For it was all ripe for dreamin
Oh, how we danced away
All of the lights
We've always been out of our minds.
pours strong and thin
Beat out the dustman
With the Rain Dogs
Aboard a shipwreck
Give my umbrella to the Rain Dogs
For I am a Rain Dog, too.
Oh, how we danced with the
Rose of Tralee
Her long hair black as a raven
Oh, how we danced and you
Whispered to me
You'll never be going back home,
You'll never be going back home.
Sorry for the long post.
