A Word Puzzle

In out last episode, Saturday boat chores demanded attention, while migraines interfered with peace afloat and Boat Dog went hunting for shade. . . .

Now, as we return to our story, we discover two phenomena:

  1. Teenagers got nothing on boat people when it comes to drinking, playing music loudly (and late), and eating pulled pork after midnight; and

  2. Old vermin walk at night.


These two bullet points really start and end the weekend’s true story. And saying more would likely violate Party Thrower-Party Goer Privilege. So I’ll say goodnight.

But I will leave you with one of those old-school kids’ word-matching games. Simply match the words in the left column with the words in the right column with which they have some sort of natural relationship:

Pirate garb Tequila shots


Guitar music After midnight

Boat christening Belly dancing

Country lyrics Champagne


Hot tub Gypsy Kings music

(no, never mind;

the marina hot tub

is a little scary)


Greek philosophy India Pale Ale

Doggie friends Bachata music

Fish tales Margaritaville


New friends Raccoons


(Don’t ask Boat Dog for help. Boat dogs tell no secrets.)

Read Local, L.L.C., is a small (we hope to grow!) community of book lovers. We review books published by independent/university/small presses and post our reviews and thoughts in an effort to raise awareness of independent-press books. The Read Local, L.L.C., entity is owned by the parent company of Stoneman House Press, L.L.C., and that publisher's work appears on this website (we make money when Stoneman House sells books), but not everyone who writes content for us or participates in our community works for Stoneman House. Aside from Stoneman House, we also have relationships (personal and/or professional) with some of the authors whose books appear here. Some (like Sage Webb) write reviews for us and help lead us (and they make money when their books sell). We note when we have a relationship with a book, publisher, or author. Otherwise, we do not have relationships with the authors and publishers listed here. They appear here only because we liked their books and we like reviewing books. (We will be as transparent as possible when we post here about things in which we have a financial stake. Not just because of regulations like those in Part 255 of Title 16 of the Code of Federal Regulations, but because we really are here just to have some literary fun.) If you are an author or publisher of a book that appears here, feel free to reach out to us! We'd love to hear from you. We are at readlocalbooks@hotmail.com. And if you are an author or publisher and you would like us to remove your book from our site, just let us know. We are here to serve the literary community. If you have questions, reach out.

(We also love innovative art and photography. Just sayin'.)
