Don’t forget the life jackets

Maybe it's a quirk of the Saturday morning route I take when riding my bike up to get a haircut near North Central High School.

But it sure seems like there are a lot of boats for sale.

Nothing strange about that, really. Maybe the owners already have their eyes on bigger ones.

But you see these watercraft in driveways adorned with “For Sale” signs and it's hard not to imagine that once they were viewed as the ticket to fantasy fulfillment.

Now I'm just guessing. But it seems like a good bet that a few years ago the owners first eyed these boats and imagined scenes of being out on the lake — laughing, smiling, woo-hooing and generally living the Spokane good life.

Now? Well, who knows.

Maybe those good times really did happen. And perhaps now it's just someone else's turn.
