Re: What a sad way to go !

How did this get from a guy dying aboard at anchor to something about a guy popping a bar tender and dying in the saddle?

... from Rangoon ...

Who died not a second too soon
Had he lasted a full minute
Or tried to get in it
He have discovered a pecker not poon.

Because a lot of us old dudes find it more interesting to die in the saddle than alone in a berth. Hard as that may seem.

Maybe for some. Others of us still seem to rise to the occasion, come what may.

Re: What a sad way to go !

You want to die having late night sex with a bar owner in Phuket?

Re: What a sad way to go !

I'd rather go out quickly, like my grandfather did when he had his massive heart attack. The passengers in the car he was driving at the time, well....

Re: What a sad way to go !

I can tell most of you have never had a heart attack. It isn't some peaceful pleasant thing.

Re: What a sad way to go !

Some folks just keel over from a massive heart attack, does not seem they are struggling or in pain, just dead right now.
Hoping I can go that way, especially doing that bar-keep in Phuket, if, and that is a big if, she was not a she-male. (Or perhaps that is why our guy checked out?)
