I’m on a Boat

Dan’s New Prindle 16 Catamaran

I’m on a boat, I’m on a boat
Everybody look at me
‘Cause I’m sailing on a boat
I’m on a boat, I’m on a boat
Take a good hard look at my MF-ing boat!
— T-Pain

Whoopie! Finally something to write about, something besides the virus anyway. After way too many years, Dan now owns a sailboat at the cabin. He found this boat on Craig’s List, but we didn’t hear much after that except to ask if his Prius could tow it. Anyway, the Prius managed, they put the boat in at Brimley State Park’s boat launch and sailed it to back to the cabin. Well almost, Mr. Bill had to motorboat Dan into shore after he had become becalmed. Dan has been pining for a sailboat, ever since the dingy lost its sail. Now he has a beauty all his own.

I applied for my Social Security benefit today. I received a letter from them stating that at least in their eyes, as of this month, I have attained the ripe old age of full retirement. I should get my first check sometime this month. I still need to convince Anne that she needs to do the same, because can you believe it, she is even older than I am. Maybe now that I’ve done it, she will follow my example. Then we can kick back and wait for the checks to begin rolling in each month.

In other news, yesterday, Saint Louis city and county announced that on Friday, masks must be worn in public. Just in time for the 4th of July weekend. Also this weekend, the musical Hamilton drops on Disney+. We would have seen the live version of Hamilton for the second time, this spring if not for this virus thingy. Anyway, in honor of both events, I offer for your viewing pleasure this video:
