Thanks Craig. I'm looking, but haven't found a tutorial for 72 year olds yet.

My admiral likes the pedestal I put her up on...
She likes to look down upon the mere captain and her crew..

Chandeleur Islands is on the same tape.
Or you could drop the video tape off at Costco or a local drug store for conversion to DVD. We converted several VHS tapes to DVD for under $50. Well worth it!

Yo, Andy

Most Admirals don't too much read these posts, nor post on TF themselves. Caus, too busy nesting for purpose of our and their continued enjoyment/stability! And brother, that surely ain't half bad!!

Whereas we "men folk"... ya know, the Captains, mechanics, pilots, buyers, deal makers, boat sellers, equipment installers, commode repair persons, under sole contortionists (I could go on - lol)... well, we need the camaraderie, support, expanded knowledge and stress relief our posts provide to one another. Cause, if we were required to play "nester" with our Admirals all day long... well... the engines might quit running, heads could overflow, controls may get stuck, gauges wouldn't operate, zincs can disappear, lubes not get changed... and on and on... that's reality's picture!

Old truism that goes both ways from one life-mate-partner regarding the other: “Sometimes can't live with em... Most the time can't live without em!”


At least that's how my Admiral and I see it... we be good ol' simple folk - LOL!

I do the mechanical work, cleaning buffing and waxing, and poke around on the web sites, but she handles the boat, including anchoring and docking, quite well. She also holds the size records for all species of fish we've caught. It's my privilege to clean them, however.

Au Contraire Capt Don (I can't believe the jury found you not guilty)

During the second world war there was a common phrase used to describe the American troops stationed here, this according to my mother who was an army nurse.

'OVER SEXED, OVER PAID & OVER HERE'

Where as, according to my father, Australian men were of a quite, contemplative, abstineous nature often given to quoting poetry (probably why we are such a sparsely populated country)

And speaking of sparsely populated, New Zealand, a country where men are men and the sheep are nervous.

That pretty much sums up my observation except for the whip.

Not hard at all. It takes a good lawyer

Where as, according to my father, Australian men were of a quite, contemplative, abstineous nature often given to quoting poetry (probably why we are such a sparsely populated country)

. . . . and your mom bought that line. I don't think so.



And speaking of sparsely populated, New Zealand, a country where men are men and the sheep are nervous.

This has been confirmed as true.
Somebody make Art and Larry to quit stirring the pot here.,
