All in one day at Harbortown Marina in Ft. Pierce:
There was a loud splash. We poked our heads out of the cabin and our boat neighbor was in the water clutching a bag of ice. His wife rushed to the rail of their boat. “Honey, you’ve got to be more careful.” His reply, “I have to get more ice.” We’ve named him Splash.
A huge power cruiser was across from us. Divers were underneath, pulling off the two massive propellers. “What happened?” I asked the owner. “I fell asleap at the helm and tried to carve a new channel in the waterway with my propellers.”
1The marina was near a train track. Jan and I were in the cockpit. she was about to adjust the dock lines while I took off my glasses to pull off my sweater. “Be careful, my glasses aare on the cushion.” My warning was drowned out by a train whistle. “What?” Jan asked and simultaneously there was a crunch as her knee distroyed my glasses. “It wasn’t important.”
