I’m desperately appealing to all you mariners out there (or anyone mechanically inclined) for your expertise in this matter. There is a boat on our dock that has a HORRIBLE odor. To be very specific, it smells like vomit. Whenever we walk by, I have to literally hold my breath. No matter which way the wind is blowing, the odor will knock you down. It’s a large motor yacht. I have suspected that perhaps there is something mechanical that emits an odor that mimics puke but I can’t figure it out.
Do any of you know what can cause that odor? And, why in the world hasn’t the owner noticed? Everyone else on the dock has!
In other news, we had two big family dinners over the past two weeks. We have three family birthdays that occur within a month of each other. Max turned 18, Frank turned 27, and Zach turned 33. All our babies are growing up!! I just have to share two pictures I took of our 3-month-old granddaughter, Mackenzie. In the second photo, she’s obviously sucking in her jowls. I know…because I frequently do that with my stomach. 😉
