that's what i thought. was hoping i was wrong. lol.

love the avatar. i'm a big popeye fan. have been since i was a kid. the other night, after i was done working on the boat and the sun went down, i relaxed by watching old black and white popeye cartoons on my laptop. it seemed rather appropriate watching them in my sailboat; nice and dry ( it was raining ) with the companionway hatch closed and the hatchboard in place.
