The old guy without the baseball hat and/or sunglasses.

What are you getting at here...are you saying we all look alike or that we're herd followers

My claim to fame is that while walking around Catalina Island after getting off a cruise ship, we were asked by someone else on the same cruise for directions because they thought we were locals

We were walking back to the condo after the celebration of 500 years since Columbus discovered the Cayman Islands. A guy assuming we were locals came up to ask where the late night action is. We had absolutely no idea We were turning in early.

I was standing in Marineplatz station in Munich when an Irishman came up and asked what train to the airport. I said #8 Flughafen. Then he hurried off. I hope that was correct.

It's dangerous to assume people are locals.

Ugly, butt ugly each and every one!!! Maybe some shots at midnight in a coal mine.

I showed them to my bride and now thanks to this ugly bunch, have a renewed our 58th annual marriage contract with the woman of the house. She appreciates me even more!

More blueberry muffins than currently once a month from her and from me, I only have to make the bed daily during the week finally, after taking the trash out, I am allowed the impression that I just cleaned the whole house.

IMHO I think the Halvorsen family would prefer to remembered as the builders of the classic wooden Halvorsen boats rather than the Hong Kong IG's, fine boats as they are.
