BOUGHT A BOAT

Posted on: March 24th, 2016 by admin

Yes, it is true; I bought another boat.  Since hurricane Sandy took my last one I have been boat-less for a few years.  Ya know it’s not that bad without one…no bottom painting, no waxing, no motor work, no running aground (not that I would have done that) no breakdowns etc.  Actually all of those “nos” is what boating is all about except for that pesky running aground thing. ( Not that I  have ever done that )  So after a few years I got the bug again to fool around on the high seas and actually bought one. I never claimed to be that smart.  Ah yes a boat “A HOLE IN THE WATER TO POUR MONEY INTO”. The interesting part is the actual boat purchase is the lease expensive part.  Hmm!! Let me see…boat slip $3300, name change $400, detailing $650, bottom painting $350, fuel to start the season $700, insurance $288, the launching $200 and the list goes on.  Now you do get to hang around the marina and drink beer and tell fishing lies with your buddies, take some cruises, try to catch some fish (it’s fishing not catching ) and even run aground sometimes ( not that I have ever done that).  So here I go again and I hope to see you on the high seas or maybe just out on the bay.  Just in case on a slim chance you might find me stuck in shallow water you don’t need to help out.  We always have plenty of beer on board for such emergencies.  Of coarse we would be happy to share a cold one.

You’re fellow “don’t know no better” boater,  Tom

A FUN ARTICLE FROM JerseyMan magazine

I WENT TO THE PHILLY POPS RECENTLY

It got me to thinking about music and how unique the sections and instruments are.  There is a brashness of the brass, the delicate nature of the strings, the boldness of percussion and the eloquence of the woodwinds.  Amazing how all of these different elements come together and create beautiful music.  Since it is the political season as well, it got me to thinking how dysfunctional our government is. And how chaotic the presidential nominees are.

Donald Trump is a tuba, emitting loud and overwhelming sounds.    Clinton is a trumpet, blowing out her agenda for all to hear.   Ben Carson is a piccolo, whispering his message in soft and muted tones.   Bernie Sanders is a mad violinist fiddling like his hair is on fire.  Chris Christie is a cymbal, delivering his opinions with a crash.   Carly Fiorina is a harp, letting her conservative edict flow from her deft fingertips.  Jeb Bush is a triangle, never wavering in tone or rhythm.  Teb Cruz is a piano that can deliver sharp right wing chords.  Marco Rubio is a tambourine, shaking his message with Cuban flair.

The orchestra conductor makes all the instruments come together in wondrous harmony.   It’s just too bad we don’t have someone with a wand that can lead our presidential hopefuls and channel their differences into a melody that will benefit all of us.

LET THE POLITICAL MUSIC PLAY ON.                                               Thoughts from Ken Dunek
