I believe his "C"'s family were Scots.

BTW, it is pronounced Men-giss.

Keysdisease refers to a condition specific to visitors, usually from colder climates, to the Florida Keys. It describes a person or persons that comes to the Keys for a 2 week vacation that decides to "extend" their stay for several years or a decade or two. This affliction often includes a name change to something like Buzzy or Skip, acquiring a bicycle as primary transportation, and a special relationship with many local establishments that serve spirits. In some cases this afflicts boaters who drop their hook and never pick it up.

Being a native of Miami I don't technically qualify, but I did live in Key West for 10 years, moved down the year it snowed in Miami, and moved halfback to civilization in Islamorada for 6 more years as a decompression stop before stepping foot back on the mainland. I'm told I had a very good time.

I still visit regularly and look forward to every trip South

Here's to you from Buttonwood Sound in Key Largo

Wifey B: I have keys disease as well. It's a unique part of paradise. It's a world of fun and relaxation and one of the great places on earth without judgmental attitudes, the ultimate laissez-faire. It's a place for writers and artists. The ultimate expression of Key West is in Fantasy Fest. Yes, debauchery, but that's not what Fantasy Fest is really about either. It's about free celebration and expression. It's about getting body painting, people you never imagined would do so. Parades of ghouls and family activities too. And in the spirit of fun and pleasure, it's about raising a lot of money for local charities. We love the Keys as do our friends and something about still just loading up the boat and going there for a weekend or week.

Back in the dialup and bulletin board days, I was looking for a handle. I have a very common first and last name. A notch less common than Jones or Smith. Got tired of jjones 6982315546xyz at every login. I belonged to a military unit that had the designation that is my forum name - tried it (only 5 characters) and it worked. Been using ever since for just about everything except critical stuff

Kizif I told you I’d have to kill you.......yup that’s where it came from. And the boat name came from somebody asking if I was going to work today!

Angus was our male Ridgeback . . . a total force of nature, when he was awake. 99 is for the Great Gretzky, who is from my home town in Canada.

Naw, menzies, should have used more precision like: financial, medical vice critical. TF must be critical in its own way - I spend waaay too much time here.

THANK YOU ANGUS99
got to admit when I first read Anguss99 I thought of a big defensive lineman as I remember from early years. A big black broad shouldered shouldered bull of a man I was supposed to block. Turns out he's a dog with the same image. Good On you for raising a sweetheart.

I used to fly a Grumman Tracker and it had a limitation of 60 degrees max. bank. Unfortunately it was sometimes inadequate to get the job done and some nimrod with a motor drive caught me stretching that limitation just a wee bit. Unfortunately, the chief pilot got wind of my maneuver, got the photos somehow and dragged me across the coals for it. I kept my job after showing him how the job was completed and reading the compliments of the contractor. Nothing to do with money.

Hal Schell was one of the most knowledgeable boaters concerning the California Delta--the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. He authored some very informative books including "Cruising California's Delta" and "Dawdling on the Delta." I first cruised there with my dad in the 1950's. Later I bought a wood GB and became a Delta Dawdler. Still love to cruise upriver. By definition a "dawdler" is someone who takes more time than necessary--so it fits for a trawler owner.

Mine is for my first boat’s name. Wayfarer just means someone who travels, which I do more than most.

Mine came via my employee’s when I was a Contractor here in Las Vegas, once they found out I was a retired Navy Chief.......Well... you get the idea. Been stuck with it since.
Much better than a Crazy Zoomie, dont ya think ASD?

I'm Lou and when I made this SN I used to tow on the road. I read here hoping one day I'll leave the race of NJ and live on a boat. Now I changed trucks no more towing but that will never leave.

First initial, last name. Like most email address names. It's as good as any.

Hi-D-Ho was the name of our first trawler a 1987 Monk 36. We discovered doing the “Loop “ in 2002 that the name sounded good on the vhf, and for what ever reason lock masters liked it, so we kept it on our Manatee. Some say it was heard on a tv program or Blood Sweat and Tears had a song Hi-De-Ho.
