Glad you're okay, Y66!
Ditto that. It would be a sad story were it not for your excellent attitude!

And we wonder why health care is so expensive. If I don't drink a liter of water an hour working on the boat here I get dizzy and almost pass out every time I work on the boat.

What happened to check vitals, hydrate and observe for an hour or so.

Or maybe it's just really expensive organic chicken...

I have a feeling you all are out of shape from sitting on a boat all day and eating fried clams while sniffing bilge diesel. You all need to start eating right and run a couple of miles every other day.

Yeha, tell me about health care costs - COBRA is $450 a month. WTF....

Little Monkey my knees won't take much running, but I can walk you into the dirt! ;-) If you're tired of uber priced health care, leave the country. You can get excellent health care in many places around the world for a fraction of what we pay in America. Of course, the kind of medicine they practice isn't Tort related, but it's good care. I was in Romania a couple of years ago and my friends wife (an endrocanologist) was proudly showing me her lab. I noticed she had her prices posted on the wall for the patients to see. As I'd just had my costly 5 year check up I remembered what I'd paid for some of my lab work. Her prices were 1/10th of what I paid. So, thinking she must be using out of date or substandard reagents, I asked to see her supplies. Made in San Jose, CA all current. Go figure!

Aegean, that's an idea. Know where we can score the worker bee babes?

Romania? Isn't that where those neck biters are Y66? I don't think my salty boat will be able to get there.

Worker bee babes - I will grab my fly costume and start learning new songs.

zeezee - great idea! I can store the candy bags in the freezer, and if i by chance fall off a mast while sniffing diesel and glue through a failed mask like Y66, I can use the frozen bags as ice!

yeehaw!

Yesterday was Moan-daY
Today is Twos-daY
Tomorrow is When?-sday

Whaddaya say?

Best break out your atlas little monkey. Romania has a port on the black sea, you can take your salty little boat right to it. Better idea, cruise down the Danube river from Germany (accessible via the Rhine and canals, or even from the Netherlands via canals) and mosey all the way down to Romania. If you stay on the river, you will even be able to cross through southern Romania from West to East and explore the marsh area on the boarder with the Ukraine. It would be a super trip.

You might also discover Romanian girls are HOT very American friendly and they would love to ride on a monkey boat. Really! Romania does have the largest Gypsy population in Europe, so keep an eye on your wallet, but they are interesting people if you take the time to get to know them. What astounded me on my first trip there was to see Gypsy's seemingly right out of a 1930's-40's movie. Riding in gypsy covered wagons, the girls in traditional gypsy dresses, laughing and dancing. Quite a sight.

Regards,

Thomas

this is getting to be quite delightfuL. imagine, saltymonkey driving a wagontrain full of monkey girls to market, and singing fly songs along the waY. y66 is indeed one lucky fellow to fall in love with so many romanian bunicas in traininG.

alas, here i sit late at night in san francisco, without a boat when i could be back east or something prepping for my romania triP. i suppose i will just have to distract myself this winter by writing a cello + piano work, or maybe a violin and orchestra piece...write a novel (its national write a novel month btw)....and perhaps learn diesel mechanics and get my amateur extra ham licensE.

If you treat anyone as a pet, they'll run off following a strange scent. Better to treat as a partner. He does things to make me happy, I do things to make him happy. No specifics here 'cause each "bargain" is different.

I think I like the way you think!

Back to St Pete next week!

Whoa, Zee! Cynical much?! Sounds like you've come across some doozy's. I think maybe your picker is off. But then lots of women like the bad boy until they find out he really IS bad! Haha.
