Jinxing Myself

I know, I know. I’m tempting the River Gods by even writing this post. But I was reading some older posts on Waterlogged and came across Tana’s story about falling in the river and thought ‘score one for Greg.’ His theory is that everyone who is around boats long enough will fall in at some point. Apparently, this is the one and only thing on which he and my ex-husband both agree.

And I, of course (being either self-confident or ridiculously naive & arrogant depending on who you’re talking to), had the audacity to say “I’m not going to fall in” when we first moved aboard. So far, so good, but there is a constant pressure now, as he is just gleefully waiting for me to get my comeuppance.

Either I will be zealous about my “three points of contact at all times” rule or someday I will have to eat my words. Time will tell…

    Great looking “acces steps”! I like the idea of the door in the side, great for storage etc.

    I still blame the damn cats for that!That said, the chances are ten-fold on our docks as they are pretty scary. It is not unheard of for non-boat people to stand up at the top of the ramp and freeze on the spot.Pansies.
