It is a late December day. Itís 60 degrees. Warm breeze today. Itís time to stand by the boats. Itís time to ponder summer things. As I look around my neighborhood, I see another man standing by his boat. Itís what we do. If I could have a chopper take me up, Iím sure I would see men all over town, standing by their boats.
Some of us are old. We are not sure if and when summer comes we will be able to do summer things. On days like this, we will stand by the boats. We have a faraway look in our eyes, as we stand by the boats.
