Karma is a Bitch...

Recommended Posts

So I read and watch unfortunate incidents occurring while people do their thing on the water.

 

I have tried really hard not judge anyone anymore after the followed happened to me about 5 years ago;

 

At a mooring in Vineyard Haven one morning I was having coffee and watching a newish Sabre being bounced around amongst other moored boats in the mooring field by its "handler" as it was leaving.

 

I comment to my Bride "Geez...I would never do that...".

 

  • Within 10 minutes I fall back into the dinghy from a not-secured transom ladder narrowly missing my head on the engine cowling.
  • Within 15 minutes close a knife on my thumb
  • And within 20 minutes the propane stove spit at me.

 

Never piss off the Karma Bitch.

That's not karma....that's being a clutz

 

 

What'd your bride do prior to your meeting?

That's the real question here...

A few weeks ago, many of us were proclaiming our happiness, that winter was probably over!! Then we got clobbered by two more dumpings of snowfall, fortunately not much for us in the southern latitudes of the state near Long Island Sound and the CT River. We had March weather in February and February's in March. Yes, karma is a bitch!! Dare I say that now it is almost time to take the patio table umbrella out of storage??

I don't know, I have been married 3 times, I never had a lot of money, you can't get blood from a turnip. Now the emotional price, that's a different story.

Your problem is really one of luck and judgement. You'll be ok, so long as you don't sign on to the wrong boat for an ocean race. That bit of poor judgement could turn out really badly for someone with luck like yours.

I think that's an attempt at redemption or atonement.

Coming out of Friday Harbor Marina yesterday and a 45' power boat is coming down the wrong side of the way, directly at us. At the last second spins the boat to the right and into his slip. Requiring and aggressive pivot and near miss from us. 

Idiot then hits forward instead of reverse and punches it into the dock. 

 

I love Karma!!

After work sail before Saturday’s date, on my home reservoir.  Light wind, warm, usual collection of jet skis and pontoons,    A pontoon drifting nearby decides to head in too, and motors up to cross my bow.   Since I’m going so slow, it’s not really a big deal.    

Que sound of revving engine, loud clanking, and the engine powering down.    

Man’s voice “Go Go Go!”

Repeat sound of revving engine, loud clanking, engine powering down.

Man’s voice “Don’t stop in front of the damn sailboat,   Go!    Move it!”

Slow gybe collapsing the sail and coming to a standstill in the light air.

”Woman’s voice, quietly:  “You need to pull up the anchor,”

A small dog that spent a decade tormenting a crocodile on her owner's property in Australia has been eaten by the animal she taunted for so long. Owner Kai Hansen, who often had guests and even television crews at his house south of Darwin to watch Pippa the terrier chase the crocodile into the water, watched in horror as she tested the reptile's patience too far and was dragged into the water.
