Bianca or Bessie?

So I think Ritchie may have the sweetest job in all of San Antonio. Last month his bosses decided to buy a company boat. Yes, that’s right, a boat, paid for and insured by the company, available for use by all employees. Well, for those of you who know Ritchie, you know he was ecstatic about this. I was pretty excited myself. We had wanted to take it out on it’s maiden voyage over Memorial Day weekend but the weather didn’t cooperate. However, the sun has been beckoning to us over the last few weeks and we’ve had some fun on the lake-twice. Now you may be thinking that we’re the company boat hogs, using it during 2 of the 3 weeks it’s been in operation but NO ONE ELSE WANTED TO TAKE IT OUT. I can’t really fathom this especially after the 2 fabulous Saturdays we’ve spent out on Canyon Lake. However, we won’t argue, we’ll just keep on skiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and tubing. Not to mention darkening our sweet tans. Access to a boat has also heightened our popularity among our peer group…Lisa-maybe you could try boating at your next party :). Anyway, after our last foray we decided to bring the aforementioned boat home for a little TLC. We went to work…I busted out my Magic eraser and went at the scuff marks on the hull, we dug the grime out of crevices and containers, and buffed the windshield until it was crystal clear (I should’ve taken a picture). We noticed immediate improvement and decided it was time to christen this new beauty with a new name. In addition to Bessie and Bianca I like Blair and Belinda. Any other ideas??

  1. What about Bertha? HAha. That’s the name I gave our honking huge truck- Big Bertha. Of Course, Chris prefers to call her either Faith or Gandolph, but I like Bertha. 🙂That is so crazy that no one else wants to take it out! Too bad I don’t live down there- I’d totally go with you!

  2. Aubrey thinks Belinda, but I really thought she would say Blair because that’s one of the 12 dancing princesses. I’m waiting for our turn to go out in the boat, whoever she is.

  3. Maybe I SHOULD try a boating party… How about Beyonce? Or Blondie?

  4. Oooooh…I like Beyonce and Blondie. Big Bertha sounds a lot like Bessie…makes me think of sturdy workhorses :).

  5. I like Cody the Boatie personally. Then Cody the Boatie and Monti the Ponti could be cousins. haha!!Sounds fun!!

  6. this is awesome! Nate’s sister Julie (the one from Heber City) just bought a boat…they’ll be getting it in a month or so, so we’ll be joining you in your boating and sweet tans!

  7. p.s. I’d have to say I’m partial to Beyonce, but girl knows I’m a little biased…

  8. oh i like bianca the best…it sounds like lots of fun…and i’m glad you haven’t given up kneeboarding, i think it’s still my favorite. Most people laugh when I say that i like kneeboarding, or they say…”people STILL do that??” 🙂
