Suits are not required to my funeral, I would hate to see everyone so uncomfortable. Swim suits, kahkis, robes, you name it, you can wear to my final party.

Well, I do intend to cruise the British Virgins so maybe I should throw in a coat and tie so I can eat dinner in the nicer places there

Nicer places -- British food? Doesn't compute.

Well, the television set looks like it will be the most popular item to take cruising in this poll. And I thought we all left to get away from it all...

Cant leave without that TV!

TV sets are great if you want to see how crappy things are going where you are not.

Thanks Dan, I needed a laugh.
Are you bringing your temporary driver's license - and - your astronaut application form?
They make great identification.

I would have thought the current American target would be those wearing Keffiyah.
Glad to see I’m wrong.

Well you know that I'm always good for a story so here goes my "Proper apparel story".

We arrived in Durban South Africa with about 6 other cruising yachts on the same day. The Commodore of the "Royal Durban Yacht Club" (I forget the real name) came down to the docks and invited us all to dinner at the yacht club.

Everyone put on their best attire and I was the only one wearing shorts (not realizing that was rude). We got to the door of the yacht club and the greeter at the door said, "Oh my goodness sir, you can't come in here with shorts on". (he was obviously quite embarrassed). I looked him straight in the eye and with a smile said, "No problem, I'll just take them off" and proceeded to unbuckle my belt.

About that time, the Commodore came to the poor guys rescue (before he fainted). He carefully escorted us in the door and whisked us up the stairs to a special room that was prepared just for us. It really was a nice gesture and I really did feel bad about my rudeness but didn't know quite what else to say, at the moment. It was a long way back to the boat to get some slacks.

It seems that one must have on a "Coat & Tie" to enter the Club. I just didn't think that Durban would be that proper. I was quite blown away with being back in civilization after being in the tropics for several years. I guess it was "Culture shock".

There is a lot to be said for having one suite of "Proper" clothing on board at all times.

I was backpacking accross China then Russia and scored some opening night tickets to Swan Lake at the Bolshoi Ballet for US$5 each. Went with 2 other backpackers and got to wear my suit that had been in the bottom of my pack for ages whereas the other 2 wore what they had. The Russians left a circle of about 5 meters arround them in the foyer. They were treated like outcasts. LOL Russians treat their ballet seriously.

If its just needed on one night a year its worth it. And there is always hanging space if you squeeze.

PS Nicely press your suit by laying it under mattress for a night.

Ummm . . . just asking, understand, but what's the difference between "get killed" and "be killed?"
