Well as a "sea farer" (my captain friends would laugh their ass off) I can tell you that I've been three sheets to the wind a great many times - and that expression is part of my vernacular. I call toilets heads (drives my wife nuts), I call ropes lines, and I call right starboard and left port.

My husband does this too. I ignore him until he can speak proper English: move over there, honey.

kitchens are galleys, walls are bulkheads. The pointy end is the bow and the boxy end is the stern.

Here's another nautical saying I use a lot that's thread appropriate. The official start of co@ktail time is "when the sun goes over the yard arm." Meaning: A yard arm is the horizontal piece on old three masted sailing ships that the sails actually hang from, when the sun dips below the yardarm of the main sail, the sun "is over the yard arm" and signifies the end of the day and time for libation. Or in Jimmy Buffet terms, "It's five o'clock somewhere."

I have absolutely no idea but that's what there called. Step on any ship sailing today (other than a cruise ship) and ask for a bathroom and you'll get a dumb look. Ask for a head and everyone will point in some direction. Sailors have a lot of free time to think up weird sh!t.

So you got me curious and I googled it and it makes sense. On old sailing ships (all nautical expressions come from old sailing ships) the "bathroom" was located in the bow of the ship for two reasons. First as they are small compartments the odd shape of the bow of the ship can better accommodate them. Second, the wind on a sailing ship blows from behind (remember the wind is pushing them forward so it is going faster than the ship) thereby blowing any odor from the bathroom off the bow rather than through the whole ship.

This concludes this episode of This Old Boat, we'll see you next week on PBS.

HA! I do like RedBridge gluten free beer by Anhauser Busch. It's good.

And I love a good wine.

For a treat, Hubs and I will get Captain Morgan and Coke with lots of ice. YUM!

Right now, with my pain meds, I don't want to mix anything. I probably could, but don't want to chance it.

Lipton diet green tea and Dasani water. Sometimes if I'm feeling really reckless I will chug some coffee. I like living on the edge.
