Burgee for Christmas? Possibly, but probably not. Before folks head out in the spring? Absolutely! And closer to Christmas than spring, I believe.

Well, not exactly, Chief . . . Andy bought a used Singer sewing machine from Goodwill and installed it in the Cruisers Forum back room. When a mod comes off-duty from ten hours of herding the cats harassing the usual suspects assisting the members, it is expected that he / she will put in four more hours sewing burgees at the conclusion of the three minute meal / bathroom break. It doesn't seem too much to ask out of a person's sixteen waking hours to devote twelve of them to the betterment of CF, wouldn't you agree?

Since I have met two of the Mods in person...the vision of them at an old Treadle Powered Singer (My Grandma had/used one) makes me chuckle......at least there is no carbon hoofprint...zero emissions...green

I should have pointed out that Administrators are exempt from Andy's performance-based motivational burgee-sewing program and respond only to effusive praise and / or periodic lashings.

They're probably made with a variation of this:

This is how an Indian kitchen works. [VIDEO]

Only 12 Hours? It appears Andy has eased up on you guys, since I turned in my cat(tle) prod retired.

I'm certain the captain will let us know when they can be purchased.

Andy said that back in October, and I thought... sigh...never mind.

So, as the song goes:

"Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you,
my CF burgeeeeeee, yeah!"
