PS Do not worry, nothing is wrong with you - we all act strangely when we are in love!

Nice. Enjoy.

About that pocket change you spent, nice too.

I did notice you said nothing about a cat coughing up a hairball on you at 3am. You need a cat.

The only thing wrong with you is that you've found what you enjoy doing the most - that's just not normal!!

Re: What Is Wrong with Me ?

Now that you've either scared away all the mosquitos or immolated them, what did you plan to stockpile for winter food?

Ain't like you're going to find many wild hogs up in Maine to put up salt pork, you'd better hope you can bait the mosquitos back.

All good advice. I would just add Black Irish Coffee to Zeehag's list of warm-me-ups.

Re: What Is Wrong with Me ?

Well, the more you work to fix unexpected problems on a 'new' boat, it rapidly becomes yours, not still the P O's - and you know some of its eccentricities.
Great stuff
