Friday Funny 7-13/18 (It's Friday, and the 13th)

If I see something like this on the dock, I'm locking the hatch.

Friday the 13th
 is an American horror franchise that comprises twelve slasher films, a television show, novels, comic books, video games, and tie‑in merchandise.Wikipedia

I've never seen this series of movies, because I don't do horror shows. The last one I saw, I was in high school, and I had a friend over for the night. She decided we should see "Psycho", and it was many years before I could get in the shower without visions of Janet Leigh, and the sound of the knife. EEEE  eee EEEEE, you can hear it too, I bet.

Shower terror.

I've written about maritime superstitions before. The one that says you shouldn't start your cruise on a Friday, and the one about not having any bananas onboard. After my brother left Denali Rose, I suddenly realized that he had brought bananas into the galley. It's a good thing I'm not superstitious. (Knock on wood.)

I just found a new superstition. you should always wear the same hat onboard. That's kind of impossible to do here. We have a warm weather ball cap, a wet weather rain hat, and a fuzzy, warm, cold weather hat. Bill forgot to attach his cap-tainer one day, and his hat blew off. I had to buy him a new extra long bill, ball cap for Christmas.

Ball cap, my favorite fleece watch cap, and Bill's sou'wester.

Bill's really old, and well salted sun hat.

One thing I definitely wouldn't do, is to name my boat "The Minnow". I think that would be tempting fate, I might name a kitten Gilligan though, that would be cute.

I don't have any plans for the day, other than pool walking. Since the doctors in Anchorage told me to exercise in the pool, I have done it everyday we've been at the dock. Mon/Wed/Fri is the arthritis class, where we walk, and move all of our joints, and Tues/Thurs/Sat, I go to lap swim and walk back and forth in the slow lap lane. I can say that lap days are the most mind-numbing, boring exercising that you can do, however, I'm off of the crutches, (again, finally), and back to my cane. This time I definitely won't push it, slow, and steady, to get back to walking without aids.

 As always, we enjoy hearing from you, either here in comments or on our Facebook Denali Rose Sailboat page.


  1. I've never heard that hat one before. I should probably focus on just wearing a hat onboard more to help keep the sun off of my face.

    1. I don't really like wearing a hat, but sometimes it's a must.
