No Longer a Dreamer

As from today I am no longer a boatless dreamer, now I am a dreamer with a boat

At the moment it does not feel quite so real, but legally there is a Sun Odyssey 40 down in Greece that is all mine

Now I have to pull my finger out and get the licences and registrations to keep the authorities happy

Congrats! I'm still negotiating on my dream and may have to walk away and look elsewhere.

Keeping the authorities happy is a good thing.

Congratulations on the newest partner in your life Take care of the boat, and the boat will take care of you. Try not to argue, especially over the little things. Spend quality time whenever possible, as neglect is a bigger issue than electrolysis on a zinc-less steel boat.

And above all, even if you don't really mean it, be sure to say the makeup and wardrobe go well together. You'd be surprised how vindictive these partners can get if they feel unappreciated.

Pump 'em full of pride, and they might just take you around the world a few times
