You never know what they find important, just whatever it is, even if it seems silly to you, don't belittle it. To them it's important

I don't understand. I did get to finish my thought, and she didn't nail anyone, just got sad.
She knows we would be doing this whether we move onto the boat or not, to retire we have to downsize, I just can't keep up with a huge yard and pool, she a big, empty house. But while she knows this intellectually, I need to be careful to make sure that I and the boat don't get the blame emotionally.
If you give them reasons to dislike the boat, how do you think your relationship will go ref the boat?
I think as much as anything, it's her realizing we are getting old, and who the Hell wants to do that?
Point is though, that what she considers important, you may not, but in the interest of being a good guy, you ought to.
In my case rather than laughing at her, calling her silly to worry about old dresses that no one wanted, I said, sure we can store them, no problem. It's not like we aren't going to have to store some things, and that these things will take up any room, they won't.

i think that is more an "if the answer and the question exist in the universe at the same time, something terrible will happen" case.

I was playing off the fact that you didn't put a period at the end of yer sentence. It was a joke. And a funny one, dadgumit.

You said the right thing. Plus that's how it works: You pay storage on all that stuff for years until you realize yer NEVER going to put it on the boat anyway. I had to leave MY TABLE SAW. That hurt.

Now, let's get back to making fun of "Happy" MdR. It's noon his time, he'll be up soon after the weekend of debauchery his girl was worried about.

Ugh, option E -- "Dood, emotional blackmail/guilt trips suck."

This is one of many reasons why I remain happily single

Re: HappyMdR's SAILING relationship poll !!!

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
......
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

Re: HappyMdR's SAILING relationship poll !!!

SeaDreaming thinks this is an out and out manipulation, and it could be.

Or, it could be a test.

We don't know what underlies the communication, and we only have MdR's interpretation of it, anyway.

I won't vote, either.

I still think it comes down to the "keeper" issue, and I'm thinking she's not, because this essentially very private issue has been put out here.

If you have enough 5 pound notes you can plug the sieve.

i don't think anything at all serious was intended.
Happy finally really selling his second boat means the southbound preparations are in the final stage.

Nothing serious? 2000 views in the last day or two sounds like very clever marketing to me .

Happy, has the boat sold yet? If not, do you want to tell us a bit more about her?
