on a nineteen-teens schooner also. Anyway, I am hoping to buy my first cruising boat
as soon as we sell our house, and start cruising with my lovely fiance. We have been entertaining the idea of a cat, though I have no experience on them besides a beach cat. I love this thread for the friendly, educated advice
everyone is sharing. Pleased to meet you!
Ben Davidson!? Ben, I remember when you were playing defensive end for the Oakland Raiders! You were awesome!
Then we worked together a few years after that on the Miller Lite campaign. Remember? "Less filling! . . . Tastes great! . . . Less filling! . . . Tastes great!"
You grew up in East L.A. A 6'8" giant white kid in the barrio, fluent in Spanish and absolutely fearless. Remember, my nephew came to the shoot and wanted a picture taken with you, sitting at the bar in that place in Pasadena? You were happy to have your picture taken with him, but only after all the Miller Lite beer
bottles were moved out of frame.
Oh, you're not that Ben Davidson? Sorry for the confusion.
Still, welcome to the Forum, Ben. Glad you're here.
