Fort Pierce City Marina Feb. 2-5. You are pretty close, so we will expect to see you there. You will have to call the marina to make a slip reservation. Come on up!

Generally, if you are a native Houstonian, you are a Cowboys hater. I will admit to being a hater...but now trying to be reformed. Dak and Zeke have helped me in this regard. They are both excellent athletes and more importantly, very stand up young men. I have found myself watching and even rooting for the Cowboys. Not passionately. But I want them to succeed because of those guys.

Back on topic....I will do what I can. THe fact that I will be travelling non-rev to and from the Superbowl city adds another wrinkle of complexity to this deal.

You gents obviously don't know Don very well. There is a very strict protocol to be followed prior to boarding his boat, and this is assuming you survive the initial (but thorough) vetting process!

Last year, several people, who had read the 27 page PPPB manual (Proper Procedure Prior to Boarding), survived the vetting and had cleared through security, failed at the boarding ladder, when the gifts they were carrying were deemed inadequate.

So I suggest you'all buy a copy of the manual (I have several available - $49.95 plus S+H) for study prior to arrival and mail me the gifts for appraisal and pre-assessment.

While this will still not garentee you an auduence with Don, it will greatly enhance your chances of success.

"and watch the game on Don's boat on Sunday!!!?!!?!?!?!!!!!..." indeed!

If not vetted with a positive outcome...there are quite a few friendly bars around with TVs.


They all know Don too ....so we just start a tab in his name

Don is a southern gentleman and follows a genteel standard appropriate for a man of his elevated class. Below are some rules you might consider when enjoying the game in his saloon.

1. Please remove your shoes before resting them on the coffee table. (Pay close attention to these shoes if N4712/Oliver attends.)

2. Please sit down when using the head (no exceptions). If you must stand, please use the port side deck.

3. Whoever takes the last beer has to buy the next case.

4. The saloon spittoon is reserved for the Captain's use only. If you feel the need to expectorate, please move aft to the cockpit and aim over the transom. Please avoid the dinghy.

5. If Don is enjoying a fine wine during the game, his will be the one wrapped in a brown paper bag. Sharing his wine during the game is verbotten.

There may be other Gentleman's Rules which I have forgotten. No doubt others remember the most important ones.

Have fun out there!!

You forgot to mention kissing the Don's ring like in the Mafia.

Being a vessel of culture another important rule on Moonstruck is that absolutely no farting is allowed inside the boat. If you feel you must have relief, go out to the swim platform, get a good grip on the gunnel, and let 'er rip.

As to #2 on the Flywright's list, you will get a gentle reminder when you enter the head, "Only a**h**** face the bowl".

Just a heads up to the happenings during the time of the gathering. At the Sunrise Theatre on Thurs. Feb 2nd is Art Garfunkel. On Sat. Feb 4th is Bo Bice. Advance tickets are recommended.

On Saturday morning in the park adjoining the marina is the Farmers Market. Food vendors will be there, Importico Bakery usually has a great booth featuring pastries and breads, and live music. Across the street will be the Fort Pierce Jazz Society Craft Market.

The Jazz Society puts on shows in the Black Box Theatre next to the lobby of the Sunrise Theatre every Tuesday evening. If you are around it is worth taking in.

Don on perusing your rules number 2 stands out as a possible unintended consequence. As my age increases the twins hang lower and lower until, finally they have reached the level that when I sit the twins often swim. So my question is, I wonder if a drop of urine is equal to, less than or more than having the sheet of water the hairy twins may deliver to the deck when standing?

Just looking out for you!

Well, Craig, I'm not saying that couldn't happen. You know, you should never trust a fart.

I think that's enough potty humor. Less get off it before it draws the wrath of the Head Mistress.
