trade goods....?

noooo... more like the result of positive behavior...

when I am p.o. by annoying stuff, unassisted in the daily grind by a partner who isn't paying attention, on land or aboard... well... don't come knockin on MY door...

but, treat me right, keep me happy.. that was addressed earlier wasn't it?
; -)

and then I'll be knockin his door down...


so no, not trade goods... just the healthy give and take in any relationship...

and well, I have to confess sometimes we like to tease, just a little bit, to keep you all on your toes. and confess, you like it when we do ; -)

In the words of Mel..................FREEDOM( but without having my guts pulled out).

I would love to be able to sail away for a while.

If I want to talk to anybody(yup, even her) I"LL call.

Perhaps I'm getting to be a grumpy old man, although I may need a few more years for the old part to kick in.

I want to go and make a few decisions where the only person it effects is me.

I want to be free of the petty bs that society has said I have to conform to, if only for a while.

One day I'm going out for a sail and I'm not coming back.

All y'all will have to get by without me for a while.

Hey, it could happen.............m

I think what you meant to say was, when you do what we want, when we want, and how we want it done, you get it.
