Rhyme nor Reason: Nautical

This happens every year... the weather starts to warm with a teasing hint of summer and I immediately fall back in love with all things nautical.... I'll blame it on my appreciation of navy and red striped ticking, anchors, salty dogs, porthole windows, sailor's knots and the gripping television series The Loveboat.

Hello. I grew up watching The Loveboat (The Bold and The Beautiful, that's another story) in the 80s!! I love the glamour of the 80s soap operas.

I never saw The Love Boat but I wanted a "kiss-me-quick" sailor's cap when I was a kid but I never got one. Do you like Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance?

The Love Boat is classic 80's television....the word classic in rather large quotation marks! I'm not familiar with the Pirates of Penzance besides knowing of the rather intriguing title. Also, I've no idea what a kiss-me-quick sailor cap is but the name alone makes me want one!
