OK,

I don't want to pickle anyone’s cucumber whose still at home building their backyard boat from the first nail...

...or those still at work doing the round eternal of the cashbook and the journal...

But I just gotta show you what we were doing when snapped by the paparazzi...


He just fits in the lazarette!

Mark, ......

Is that an elephant between your legs or are you just happy to be there?

She did. But you lot talked her out of it saying the hamster would escape and eat the 12 volt wiring. a) How can an elephant get through the bars of a hamster cage? and b) Elephants don't eat wiring!

By the way, I need your advice: When the elephant wouldn't go the trainer told me to kick it behind the ear twice. I was right not to, eh?

1. Dont kick anything that big...ever.

2. Here's a trick I learned as a kid; Observe your elephant through the wrong end of your binoculars. While observing, pick the elephant up with tweezers and drop it into your lazarette. Be sure to use the binos again when removing said elephant later on. You dont want to know what happens if you forget the binos....no you dont...

No much good for us at the moment as Hannibal found out they are not much good in the snow, photo taken an hour ago. Astonishing for a little island that is normally foggy, wet and windy.

No sailing this weekend if this stays
