Life... is not simply a series of exciting new ventures. The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won't be got rid of. Anita Brookner

Now, I don't like to point fingers. I've got my share of unfinished projects. There is a box full of shell pieces that are destined for a wall art mosaic as soon as I find the right frame.  I've been looking for that frame for 6 months. I have several storage tubs in my closet that if I would just unpack I could actually walk into my walk-in closet. But, I'm sorry if the procrastination kingdom has a king - I have found him.

(Overhead at a small home in Englewood)

"Look Honey! I bought a sailboat!"
"But Darling, you don't sail"
"I know, but I'm going to learn"

(Overheard at same Englewood home 1 year later)

"Sweetheart, I'm going to take the sailing lessons as soon as I fix the hole in the boat"

(Overheard yet another year later)

"My Love, I made you a new planter in the front yard!"

I drove around the block to get a second look. 


  1. I think I have the west coast king living here at my house! Great planter though!!

  2. I laughed my a** off over this one. Thanks, now I can have another Snicker's bar.


  3. Ha,ha.. I got one of the King's living here in TN. Must be lots of them. I love the boat planter, its a welcome site to us folks, we see cars done this way. LOL

  7. Oh you've gotta dig it uuuuup!
    I want a boat so badly. Ohhh mannn.
    Wonder though...how a golf bag would look
    planted with say, pansies?

  8. LOL And they still have Christmas lights on the mast! He IS the King!

  9. I've heard of having a boat in your yard....but having a boat IN your yard, well now that's different!
