Gilligan, Is That You?

 "Hey, Dad,  you wanna go sailing"?

Hesitantly..."Sure..." Gulp. Life vest... Check. White-knuckled grip... Check. Come to Jesus meeting...check.  "Please God, don't let the boat tip over" it did on Saturday! Aaaaccckk.

The confident Captain, pushing out to sea.

Cape fear...

Isn't it pretty!!!!
Oh, that's me, yelling how beautiful it is.
"So, pretty! I love the sails! It's gorgeous!"
I'm on the beach taking pictures, jumping up and down, and clapping for joy.
The boys didn't seem the least bit upset I was too chicken to go. As a matter of fact, they left rather rapidly, as in "hurry, get in, before she changes her mind".

Two pirates and a daddy...

Headed off to who knows where. Maybe they'll find a sunken ship filled with treasure...a girl can dream can't she?

Goodbye men. And don't come back without some gold coins!

"My soul is full of longing

For the secret of the sea,

And the heart of the great ocean

Sends a thrilling pulse through me."

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Am I The Only Sucker?

Am I the only one who's been sucked in to the strange world of the 'Sister Wives'?? Please tell me, have you watched any of this show on TLC?

Because I'm starting a support group for those of us who have.

Is it just me, or do you agree that the husband is getting to have a full-blown affair in plain view of his other three wives? They're all fairly old, fairly fat, and obviously same ol' same ol' by now. Three is not enough...EWWWW!

He's having a POLYGAMIST MID-LIFE CRISIS, and bringing his younger woman into the mix.
Weird? Yes. Strange? Yes. Bizarre? Yes.

What do ya'll think?
