Growing out of maturity sounds about right too.

"Fair winds and clean tankage". I'm stealing that one!

I thought Guiness was an Irish thing? At least that's what they told me in Shannon.

Re: Happy Birthday boatman61

Boatie, as I tell my kids, getting older is better than the alternative.

Happy Birthday!

Re: Happy Birthday boatman61

As Boatie is the one and only, for which the world breathes a sigh of relief, he would not have been allowed on the Ark.( Two of him would keep us mods busy for ever). Therefore he must have taught Noah to sail on his own boat.

Happy Birthday...

Is it true they used your arm for the measure on the ark?

Re: Happy Birthday boatman61

I think they used his cute bits. He must have a lot of 'em though. 40 cutebits x 40 cutebits or something like that wasn't it?.

Re: Happy Birthday boatman61

Boatie was born about 10,000 yrs. ago,

There ain't nothing in this world that he don't know,

He taught Peter, Paul, & Moses to play ring a round o' roses......

An' we'll whup the guy that says it isnt so!

Happy, Felicitations, etc., Boatie,

From Jim and Ann & Wottie and Kate, too
