The Winterization Blues

I made the call today to Anchor Bay Marina to winterize my boat.  That call always gives me a bit of of the blues.

Enjoy this Muddy Waters video – he sings Honey Bee – live. Maybe I am getting too old but they don’t make music like this anymore. Of course, I don’t think I was alive when he recorded this so …. whatever. But here is Muddy – aka McKinley Morganfield – live in and full color. He’s the man.  I chose “Honey Bee” because my beekeeping buddy and I are cracking open the hives and harvesting honey this weekend, Lord willing. We hope to get at least ten gallons, so let me know if you want any.

I am fortunate that, for work and play here on Lake Martin, I get to use my boat well into the end of October. I guess I should be thankful. But when the temp hit 29 last night, I knew the time had come to winterize.

I will be summerizing in the middle of March or so, so it’s not that long of a time away from my boat.

But it still hurts.
