      >> Some suggestions you can do at home, if you miss being aboard your boat!
      >>
      >> 1. Sleep on the shelf in your closet.
      >>
      >> 2. Replace the closet door with a curtain.
      >>
      >> 3. Four hours after you go to sleep, have your spouse whip open the
      >> curtain, shine a flashlight in your eyes, and mumble, "Your watch!".
      >>
      >> 4. Put a wall across the middle of your bathtub and move the shower
      >> head down to chest level.
      >>
      >> 5. When taking showers, shut off the water while soaping.
      >>
      >> 6. Put lube oil in your humidifier instead of water and set it to high.
      >>
      >> 7. If your basement floods, during a sudden thaw, go down and start
      >> bailing.
      >>
      >> 8. Bring inside some type of gas motor (lawn mower, garden tiller, etc),
      >> start,
      >> and leave running while trying to listen to favorite CD, or having an
      >> in-depth conversation.
      >>
      >> 9. If the wind outside is howling, race around the house to make sure
      >> all
      >> windows and doors are secure (at night, everyone takes a turn on
      >> 'watch').
      >>
      >> 10. Place all non-edible garbage in small plastic bags, and store in
      >> other half
      >> of tub (edible garbage to be thrown out the window).
      >>
      >> 11. Wake up at midnight and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on
      >> stale bread. Cold canned ravioli or soup, is optional.
      >>
      >> 12. Make up your family menu a week ahead of time without looking in the
      >>
      >> pantry, fridge, or freezer.
      >>
      >> 13. Once a month, pick a major appliance, take it completely apart, and
      >> put
      >> it back together.
      >>
      >> 14. Use 18 scoops of coffee per pot, and allow it to sit for 5 to 6
      >> hours before drinking.
      >>
      >> 15. Put a fluorescent light under the coffee table, and lay there to
      >> read a book.
      >>
      >> 16. Every so often, throw the cat in the tub (hot tub, large sink,
      >> etc.)and shout,
      >> "Man overboard!".
      >>
      >> 17. Run into the kitchen and sweep all the pots/pans/ dishes off of the
      >> counter
      >> onto the floor, then yell at your spouse for not having the place "stowed
      >> for
      >> sea !"
      >>
      >> Thanks to Janet Hartman, of "Tarka" (Shannon 43)
