Sunset on Lake Marion

Sunset on Lake Marion

I've come up with the most brilliant idea for a retirement home for men. It should be designed with a long porch overlooking a boat landing. Is there anything men enjoy more than critiquing other boaters launching their boats? They could do a little fishing themselves in between show times. It would be perfect. I should build it myself.

...critiquing other boaters launching their boats?

Ain't that the truth! Was hanging out with a buddy up here at Lake Murray next a public boat landing. During the time I was there I saw a couple of boaters were having a difficult time getting their boats back on their trailers and everyone was giving them the devil.

Hahah! It is so true. Any man who has ever had a boat loves judging other boaters on their technique. This would be the most successful retirement home ever and we would always serve fresh fish for dinner.

Build it and they will come. That's a great idea! They could even make a movie about it...."Lake of Dreams". Maybe even get Kevin Costner to do a cameo.

Huh? Oh...wait....

Lowandslow - if we offered boat storage all the sons would come to visit every weekend. Lake of Dreams. I like it!

Lowandslow said...

All kidding aside....that's actually a very good idea.

Charlestonjoan said...

I know it is. My mind is buzzing.

Why can't it be coed? All we wimmin could keep the menfolks in line!

Marcheline said...

I was going to suggest waitresses in miniskirts to bring the cocktails out to the front porch...

P.S. Come visit my place - I got a facelift! *wink*

I can't get over what good ideas you come up with. Let me know. Sounds really good especially if that picture is the place you're planning on.

Charlestonjoan said...

Kate - come on down! You will need a cottage since you still have a sweetheart.

Charlestonjoan said...

Hahah! Now we are thinking...pretty gals to serve drinks. This is not a no alcohol retirement home.

Charlestonjoan said...

Do you want to go head and reserve a room? Could be fun!

Pixel Peeper said...

Oh, what a great idea! You could have themed evenings like "Beers and Boats."

You know it, Joan.... That's as bad as male drivers judging other drivers in cars! (I know I'm a culprit)

Catalyst said...

Great concept, Joan. I can't wait to see it.

Rick said...

Absolutely!

They can watch the marriages implode at the landing while sipping their beer. (God forbid I ever have to back a trailer again!)

if it looked like that you'd have a crowd of people (men and women) beating a path to your door.

Charlestonjoan said...

See - we already have the activity calendar ;)

Charlestonjoan said...

Heheh....it is the truth.

Charlestonjoan said...

Shall I put your name over a door? :)

Charlestonjoan said...

Exactly! A woman can't win.

Charlestonjoan said...

It would be a huge success. These comments have been a great focus group.

If it is up by our lakes - Marion & Moultrie we will be guaranteed the best peach pies and cat fish. That will be out signature dinner.
