and yes, all in jest.....

Yeah ... I tried a beard. It just wasn't "me," y'know what I mean?

Re: Wana be a sailor!!

sailors also repair, and rest and sail more..... once you have done your penance classes, find folks who have boats with no crew---beg space and knowledge--as much as you can get....practice practice practice---and while you practice, dont forget ye have to cuss like a sailor and drink like a sailor....yada yada quack quack.....
