Janice aboard Seaweed,
living the good life afloat...

I'm doing it and you can too.

Nice versus never again

Aphorism Alert:  I don't understand these complaints about the postal service. Time was, you could put a two-cent stamp on a letter and mail it, and it would arrive at its destination in two days. Now you put a thirty-two-cent stamp on a letter and it can take four to five weeks to arrive. Still only a penny a day! Harper's.

My home is not fancy by any means, however you cannot imagine how wonderful it is to come back to her after an expedition on shore.

If I can live this life, why not you too?

Every gift helps.

The Cruising Kitty is what boaters refer to as spending money. There's never enough aboard Seaweed!
