It's only a day away

The latest exchange with the yacht broker:

Hello Greg,

17 Hunter will be ready to go this Wednesday. The owner is scheduled to be in at 9 am to sign off the title, receive his payment, etc, so the boat should be ready to go by 10 am or so. I am looking forward to you getting Love'n Cocoanuts soon.

Nice. I'll be there about 9:59. :)

Seller can be late at times. I'll call your cell phone the minute we wrap things up.

Yeah, next time I do a sailboat deal I'm going to put a caveat on in there about an offer expiration. Get the spurs kicking so I can go sailing, dang-it.

I’m on your side! See you later in the week.

Later in the week? What is that? Is that a foreshadowing that I'm not getting my boat until Friday, or some nonsense? This is killing me.

In the meantime, I'm taking the whole day off tomorrow and given the slightest hint of a breeze, I'll be out on the Willamette launching from the park in John's Landing.

Thanks, gypsy pirate wench! ;)

You're living the dream down there, eh? Who do you recommend for us to bareboat charter with in BVI?
