Im loving reading this. Its all so true and I wouldnt realy want to change the core essence of a man, cos thats what they are and how things are meant to be.

Now, if you were to ask a woman whats in her handbag, ........

Im some place in the middle. Some days I carry a bag, on others I dont.Depends what else im wearing. If its jeans then no, but a dress, yes.
I shove things in my pockets, but not as much now as I used to. A knife, spare change, tissues (kleenex) a wallet with loads of cards with information on them, cell phone, have been known to carry interesting pebbles, the odd nut or bolt, lipstick.

Its good that we dont have to grow up. Just grow wise and make sure lifes adventure is fun, safe and happy.

This is good.

I used to be fond of saying, "You don't mess with perfection."

Said with a grin.

Hey Girls and Boys this is when you know you have the right woman with you on the boat. This morning we decided to have boiled eggs for breakfast instead of the usual porrige and honey. Toast made and buttered just like we like it. Sally where is the egg cups. Reply you broke them last summer. Me bugger Sally comes into the dalon with 2 micalor clamps 30mm (like wide jublie clips) there you go says she lovely says I and we enjoyed the eggs. So now you know folks keep a couple of mikalor clips 30mm in case in the galley

The reason men are like this is because we know- Everyone dies, but not everyone lives.

I certainly refuse to grow up. Count me in with the arrested development crowd.

But one thing I do know is this simple rhyme;

"Happy Wife, Happy Life".

She lets me have any boat we can afford, most times more than one. All I have to do is what ever she wants.

Oh, and she doesn't mind the clutter I leave in my wake. Gotta learn to throw more stuff away.

Works for me. YMMV.

"Women complains about men because they never change.
Men complains about women because they change."

And change, and then change the change they just made, and then complain because we tidied it back to 'The way we liked it, didn't we?'

My favourite 'repost' is in answer to 'You wanted to 'whatever?' !'
'Did I?' usually de-fuses the situation.

My late mother was quite a fisherman....you couldn't imagine what was in her purse when we went out......I think she invented the "ditch bag" and thank God she never had to go thru an airline screening prior to heading to the Florida Keys.

Gosh, I think somebody wrote a play about this very thing. I've been accused of having the syndrome. Just because I convince pretty girls that they can fly .....

Oh! and a new design for a Junk sail for a friend in california. The only thing missing that I had as a 6 year old kid was a conker but health & safety say we cant play conkers any more. In the wallet was NO money I am only trusted with cash when WE go shopping cause I might lose it when I take out my hanky. No not to blow my nose but to use it for what it was intended to wipe some dirt of the engine and then polish my knife.
Ho-boy! That's priceless! Just like what my wife says to me! She stopped going through my pockets to wash my pants years ago, saying she refused to touch "whatever those things are" that she would find in there...

I'm still laughing, great post.

I think I read somewhere that girls are young women and men are grown up boys...I know I like my toys!!

We have been happily married for 28 years, and the first refigerator magnet I got (a strange American custom) said, "if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy".

I do try to help momma be happy.

I know that this is written in English because I can pronounce the words. And feelsgood, PLEASE don't be offended, but for the life of me, I don't under stand what in the heck you are saying here. I understand what "bugger" is and remember the caning, all ten lashes, I received for using it in the seventh grade from the headmaster(the Monk). Understood "Sally" also. Most everything after that is up for grabs. Would anyone care to interpret?
