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".'
Clever commercial Beer Turtle...

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Laser sailboat,
My friends all sail Lidos, please don't make a joke,
Worked hard all my lifetime, have a heart full of hope,
So oh Lord, won't you buy me a Laser sailboat?

That's it!
 
Terribly confused I am - sailors her? I am new to the Lasers, my best freind just gifted me an ancient one that has been in his family for year. I have been sailing all my life, but big, slow boats. Hoping I am in for a wicked fun new experience - one problem tho... no sail. I am presently refurbing boat for next season ( if the term 'wicked' didn't clew you in, am from the Northeast).
Where can you get the cheapest used sails?

BTW - I know the Pink Bunny well - she was watching my beer for me - I swear she didn't touch a drop!

This is the Silly Thread. Sounds like you want the Wanted to Buy and/ or Laser Sailing categories. Welcome to TLF!

That would be illegal, but of course, you were being silly.

I live less than half a block from my polling place so I crawled out of bed at 6:15 to be at the head of the line. Ha! There were 50 people waiting for the polls to open. I went back to bed, and then voted at 10 a.m., with a 5 minute wait. There's a lot of enthusiasm for this one.

Re: Laser Winter Project

How come you hang the coal shovel with the blade down and the rakes are hung with the business ends up??

and

are Rosemary and Michael still and item?? or did Tim take over in 2000?

and

That's a pretty nasty looking thunderhead. Did it eventually rain??
 
Is he absolutely silly or is he just very clever? ... I am undecided, but
meanwhile many of sailing spectator's, onshore, view to the actual running Volvo Ocean Race 2008 or the actual running Vendee Globe Challenge 2008,
last weekend a young fearless Sailor, age 16, from UK did start off for going into a big singlehanded sailing adventure on his open 50 racer.

Mike has my full attention, not those Vendee or Volvo Pro's...

Of course I find the Rooster mainsheet to be harder on both the hands and the wallet and it loses its tangle free properties in a couple weeks of hard use.
 
It's that time of year to dig out my favorite holiday wish for everyone again.

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday(tm), practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all . . . and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2009, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great, (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only "AMERICA" in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual orientation of the wishee. By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/him or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.
