Boat Friday

 

Sometimes being in dry-dock for repair is just what the doctor ordered.

Ginnie, I hope you don't have to stay in drydock too long...
Ginnie Hart: ME, TOO, Larry! My goal is to be out-n-about all over tarnation by Spring. But even already I try to take little walks outside, like to the nearby grocery store. So far so good. Thanks.

Oh...nice poster effect here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I remember seeing the old barges on the canals when I lived in the UK, beautiful old vessels.
Ginnie Hart: I so agree with you, Will. This one seemed to be one of a kind, needing a LOT of TLC. It was hard to imagine it ever out on the water again.
This just totally cracked me up...your words and image! Love!
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Robin. If we can't take a joke, right? grin
i love this old boat Ginnie...
you'll be out of dry dock in no time....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter, and thank you! I do believe you're right. Yesterday I was able to raise my foot (from a horizonral position) with my quad muscles for the first time. I shocked all of us watching, including my PT. smile
This is quite a find! I'm sure it's just what you need right now- but soon you'll be ready to try out your sea legs again! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. My sea legs are cooperating more and more. Yesterday I was able to raise my foot (from a horizonral position) with my quad muscles for the first time. I shocked all of us watching, including my PT. smile

I know in no time you will sail 'the seven seas' again. The start was yesterday with that 'total lift off'. I know you are not there yet, but there is progress. Great picture with the occasion.
Weeeeeeekenddddddddd.............
Ginnie Hart: Yesterday was a huge milestone with that "lift-off," MLMA. I think I was more shocked than anyone. Thanks for being my biggest fan club.
What a fabulous capture Ginnie! Well done indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard. It did seem appropriate. smile

At least you are in "dry-dock" at the right time of year, Ginnie. I can imagine how you would feel if this were June, for example!
Ginnie Hart: The more I think of it, the more I know you are right, Lisl. There was a certain amount of planning to this timing, maining to get everything in on one year's insurance deductible. But the timing does indeed seem to be shaping up perfectly.

a very suiting photo - and I remember well öovely Woudrichem! I wish the best daily progress for you - yes, it might be possible to take little walks outside while using the crutches, please!
Ginnie Hart: I have the strictest orders from my PT to always use my crutches, Philine, or, when shopping, my rollator. I wouldn't think of doing anything else while still being quite wobbly. But interestingly, walking with crutches is one of my favorite things to do, for some reason. It gets the juices moving. smile

I understand you very well - the crutches give us a feel of safety - and the rollator is also very helpful - as I remember!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, and yes, Philine. I prefer the crutches because I can stand more upright with them, but the rollator allows me to transport items I couldn't with the crutches.

Rudders indicate clearly that this boat is rather older. He still looks good
Ginnie Hart: With a bit of TLC, she'll be back in the water before long, Marie. smile

It looks like there is accommodation, or something, below deck Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It does look like it could be someone's home with a bit of TLC, Chad. smile
You have been twiddling when you should be doing knee exercises Ginniegrin
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! You'll be glad to know, Bill, that I did this many days BEFORE my surgery! grin
I like this water colour effect!
Did you know I used to do water colour?! wink

I still do every now and then, but these days I paint on iPad. wink
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE watercolor effects, LC, and did NOT know you used to do it. Bravo. I'd love to see some of your iPad art. Please?
I wouldn't mind a month on dry dock myself.
Ginnie Hart: It's definitely one way to take a rest, Mary. (sigh)

Out of water for a bit of bottom scraping and patching probably. I like the machanism on the desk.
Ginnie Hart: For a bit, Alan, and hopefully not too much longer than that! smile Thanks.

Some project there Ginne .
Ginnie Hart: Nothing a lot of TLC couldn't help, Peter! smile
Great image for this stage of the proceedings. Sounds you are recovering brilliantly Ginnie, and will soon be leaping out of dry dock
Ginnie Hart: With everfyone rooting for me like this, Janet, I can hardly lose!!! Thank you.
Lovely old boat and I do like your 'treatment' with this Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Silly, how happy a person can be for lifting a leg 8" - depends whether you are in the dry-dock, I guess. Go for it. Interesting conversion.
Ginnie Hart: It's all relative, Louis, isn't it. I just about jumped off the table with joy. smile I'm definitely going for it.... Thanks.
Great image Ginnie... repairs are needed time to time. ; )
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn, and YES. You're very right!

Fantastic craft that will be fully operational again in no time, just needs a little patience and a dose of TLC.
Ginnie Hart: The boost I get from you here in this community, Mike, has already put me steps ahead of myself. I'm catching up and am loving it. Thank you.
I'm a trifle baffled here, Ginnie - are they building the boat out of a house or a house out of the boat?
Ginnie Hart: Now you've just baffles me, Tom! grin Good question.

I like the analogy and the photo smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. It seemed to work. smile
A most interesting effect, a good overhaul and there will be no stopping this vessel.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir, for your vote of confidence!!!
It does look like it could use a little work.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Michael. smile
