    GAMES FOR WHEN WE ARE OLDER

    1. Sag, you're It.

    2. Hide and go pee.

    3. 20 questions shouted into your good ear.

    4. Kick the bucket

    5. Red Rover, Red Rover, the nurse says Bend Over.

    6. Musical recliners.

    7. Simon says something incoherent.

    8. Pin the Toupee on the bald guy

    SIGNS OF MENOPAUSE :

    1. You sell your home heating system at a yard sale.

    2. You have to write post-it notes with your kids' names on them.

    3. You change your underwear after a sneeze.

    OLD IS WHEN:

    1. Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

    2. You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

    3. Getting a little action means I don't need fiber today.

    4. Getting lucky means you find your car in the parking lot.

    5. An all-nighter means not getting up to pee!

    Well, that doesn't sound too silly... which I thought was the point of this thread...

    But my quick research discovered that age divisions were scored within the fleet as follows: Apprentice Masters (35-44), Masters (45-54), Grand Masters (55-64), and Great Grand Masters (65+); plus women's categories. I would be in the Masters catagory based on age.

    And now for something completely different...

    We just celebrated LABOR DAY and if raising children was going to be easy, it never would have started with something called labor!

    Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.

    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway...

    so...

    Wouldn't it be great if we could have a "rumble strip" around the perimeter of the racecourse? There sould be a bunch of short choppy waves all along the weather side of the layline so we who take too many flyers could know when we have completely banged the corner.

    Attn technical committee?? Have you a plan??

    Gouv (& Merrily), your next Laser 1:18 from the out-of-the-box-small-boatbuilder did arrive here :)
    Time for me, to get the Quingdao-videos prepared for Merrily ...
    And no, it is not me at the photo below. It's a photo of a Laserite of Lake Constance, that another friend did post to me. I'm not sure about this Laserite you see at that photo, probably he secretly did use the Rooster 8.1 one time to much ...... but I'm 150% sure, LaserPerformance and several "Laser-direct"-store owners do like those photos, in a special way of view ...

    Cheers
    Lu

    I have been working on a speed restriction device for lasers. Lots of Mothers have expressed concerns about their children sailing too fast and hitting things. I have discovered that the pastel colored ones are more likely to blend in with the boat and , as the kids are not embarrased by their presence, the pastel ones are easier to sell.

    My pitch??

    Mine is the governor pale in color. YOur kid's boats won't go bam ma.




    Hey.. Don't be biden your time about laughing at my joke!!!

    Print this out and read it on the John

    Oh my darlin', oh my darlin', oh my darlin', Clementine.
    She is lost and gone forever, oh my darlin', Clementine.

    OK, don't know where that came from, but it is silly.

    Hey, Clementine would be a great name for a Laser, don't ya' think?

    Or how about Susanna, with a banjo on your knee?

    Maynard G. Krebs?

    Okey, dokey?

    Sinfully delicious?

    How about painting upside down on your centerboard? If you can read this, I'm losing.

    Isn't it "pumpkin"-season?
    some couple of days before, we had the famous "big pumpkin paddle-contest" at Ludwigsburg in the near of Stuttgart.
    -> http://www.juckerfarmart.de/fotogalerie/2008_kuerbisregatta_neu/_DSC3625.php
    That brings me to the idea to put a Laser 4.7er Rigg onto such a selfmade/full-salvageable "hull"...
    Did anyone tried it or is there perhaps already a "big-pumpkin Laser race" somewhere ... ;)

    Political Post Turtle:

    '..The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle".

    "You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, and she doesn't know what to do while she's up there, and you just wonder what kind of dummy put her up there to begin with".'

    Lu, you have your own town? :D I'd like to see if there's any contests at Janetsburg. Are there any Janet Towns, Villes, Cities out there?

    Why, yes it is! Here is the granddaddy of pumpkin shows:
    http://www.pumpkinshow.com/index.htm

    While there you can see the worlds largest pumpkin, over 1300 pounds, the Miss Pumpkin contest, and the Little Miss Pumpkin contest, and the world's largest pumpkin pie. Years ago I went to the Circleville Pumpkin Show and had pumpkin ice cream. Yum!

    Janet, I have my own Harbor... :) ("Ludwigshafen" at Lake Constance)

    For "Janet" I found a small village at France, at the lovely area South Provence, in the northwest of Aix-en-Provence (I have been there at Aix, its really pittoresk there) between the small towns Lambesc, Rognes.
    Interesting there is. Not far away, at "Les-Baux-en-Provence", the "Bauxit" was found 1st time. Bauxit is the stuff, Aluminium (such as we use for our Laser masts) has been got out 1st time....
    I don't know, if they have pumpkins at "Janet", but probably a good red wine....
