We're going. Possibly looking at radios (with loud hailer etc); possibly a spotlight; possibly looking at our latest credit card bill before we go.

If the Seahawks win this weekend (fingers crossed) they will be in the Super Bowl. If they are in the Super Bowl the final Sunday of the boat show will be cancelled. We got the word from the Show organizers a few days ago.

I know, right? We went to the car dealership the other day to look at a 2014 model. They had a few 2013 models that hadn't sold yet. I asked if they were giving them away. Nope, they were selling them. Cheezy!

In the publishers defense, he is not a media conglomerate but a very small company. And each issue, which is quarterly, is about 200 pages and very expensive in small runs to print. He's also been selling back issues (of his previous titles) for 17 years at boat shows, and yes, about 5% of people think it's cheezy. However, for people who subscribe at the boat show they get back issues for free. Personally, if I'm doing it, I end up giving some away free anyway.

What is FLIBS? We will definitely stop by the PNWboater booth.

Please beat the 49'ers! I'll never hear the end of it if they win the superbowl. I'm rooting for my team to win, but I'm rooting for 'anybody but the niners' more.
