the suit and tie is to wear whilst sailing.
I do. Martini shaken not stirred. James Bond only used power boats in the movies. In real life he sailed.

In addition to all of the items from the survey, I'm thinking of bringing
1. boogey board
2. goped
3. folding bicycle
4. parasail
5. windsurfer
6. kayak
7. hammock
8. rocking chair

What do you think? Is this too much stuff, or is the Beverly Hillbillies look OK now? By the way, I've seen hundreds of hookahs being smoked, and all of them were tobacco, but in some states, mere possession of the hookah is a misdemeanor, for possession of drug paraphernilia. Reminds me of the old joke about the lady holding her husband's fishing pole when the fish and game warden came along.

Well no matter how far from civilisation we get we all still have to take a crap at some time and those matches sure do come in handy...

Wow, looks like TV and Narcotics are about even. Why doesn't that surprise me? <BG>
