April 10, 2016 – The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener

Sunday, April 10, 2016 

When the wife would take me to task in my drinking days, I would soon show her who was boss of the establishment. I would tell her in no uncertain terms that, “When I ceased being Captain of the ship, I would sink it.” 

Oh, yes, I was Captain, but somehow the ship was continually on the rocks. It wasn’t my fault, understand; the wind and the waves were always against me. 

Now I have resigned my commission as Captain, I have a new Navigator and my ship keeps pretty well on its course. I’m only a deck hand now, but I’m happier with less responsibility and I am confident it’s much safer.
