We took a day trip, picked up Don & Evelyn and drove down to Morven, NC to visit the Tuckers at their farm and see their new Yacht . Now Tuck can find a deal, he kept bidding on boats in Houston until he got more than he wanted at less than he expected to pay, (his words). It is a 30 footer with head, kitchen and bed room. It has radar, sonar, depth finder, fish finder etc. A beautiful boat.
He has the finances to do all this. We do not begrudge them the ability to swing deals that we could only dream of. What Tuck has they have earned; he should have inherited, but did not. He stood aside when a greedy step mother took the family money, etc. But like I said, he has earned what he has by the sweat of his back and the intelligence and guts he possesses. I admire his ability. When I was able to retire and hit the road, he was just hitting his stride. He is a great guy, BUT HE CANNOT TALK LOUD! Lol Not his problem, mine.
We needed just a little reminder of Florida. (This is close to where Rose, of 'Roses are Read' lives.)
When Sherry first started seeing them she said let me drive, you have got to see this, there are hundreds of gators here, and they were for the next hundred miles. I told her if the motor home ran hot and we needed water, it would be her job to take the bucket down to get the water. The look I got was “In your dreams cowboy!”.
