July 20, 2015
My doctor said I must get out and rough it a bit if I wanted to be a real man. “Get yourself a motor boat, he said, camp out weekends; that will make you eat and sleep.” I had never been known to rough it, had never slept anywhere but in a nice, comfortable bed. Didn’t think that I would take his advice, but fate willed that I should. On my way home i the car I met my old friend Walt Wiegner, a boat bug, whose conversation ran: “Just heard of a fellow who wants to sell a motor boat; they say it’s a bargain.”
