Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hey Smacks, my wife Jill's GG grandfather was Cherokee. He was an Oklahoma Territory sheriff. I have a photo of him taken in 1901 with the other sheriffs. It's a classic photo. They are all wearing three piece suits and cowboy hats while looking very sheriffy.

"I'm a happy old dude who wouldn't change places with anyone else on the planet."
Gee whizz BS, you sound miserable and very angry most of the time, constantly whining and venting spleen about all number of things.

Wow, I wonder if they knew each other? My grandfather's family came out of the Oklahoma Territory as well. My G-Grandfather owned a trading post and pool hall there, sold some land to Jesse James (we have a letter from him), and generally whooped it up.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Smacks:
From the look of Jill's GG grandfather in the photo, he does not loolk like a whooper. He is the only native American in the photo, smoking a corn cob pipe and scowling. There is one black sheriff and he is standing off to the side of the group. Jill's brother inherited the six gun. Jill inherited one of his pipes. and I have that in my collection. Jill's Mom is very avid into her ancestry, she is connected to the Stetson family of hat fame, but when she confronted some of her relatives in Oklahoma they apparently were not keen on discussing that side of the family. Jill is going to visit her Mom today and she will ask about it. Jill's mom is a cousin of Adam West aka Bill Anderson aka Batman.
So I got that going for me.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

That side of my family are the McCulloughs. This mix of Cherokee and Scot explains my general scrappiness, predilection for blue face paint, and Outacite eyes.

I wonder why Brent won't give any details on his background? From his pics he looks much more European than Abor.

Smack:
I don't believe a word of what BS says. The guy has an honesty issue. He sure as hell does not look like an Abo to me. I live on a reservation. I have a pretty good idea what the PNW natives look like. But you never know. Ran into a strikingly attractive gal at the bank once and I just had to ask her what her ethnicity was. She was half Eskimo and half Irish. It worked.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I took some inspiration from Brent.I am half Irish so I wrote the British government and demanded they send me 4000 pounds a month for life for the occupation, oppression, and genocide they brought upon the Irish, my people.I am half English so I wrote the Irish government and demanded 4000 euro a month for life for all the destruction of property, mayhem and stress the Irish brought upon my the English, my people.I am sure the Germans owe me something to as well as The Russions....the Chinese.........

1/2 brown & 1/2 white usually works incredibly well. As Russell Peters said - in a few generations the whole world is going to be beige. Actually, judging by some of the kids in Vancouver, I'd say 1/2 brown, 1/2 white and 1/2 Asian is the best mix - there are some absolutely breathtakingly beautiful kids here.

Robert E. Lee is an ancestor of mine - do you think I'm entitled to some compensation for the War of Northern Aggression?

And don't forget the Visigoths.

Actually, you may be onto something. Brent should write a book called "How To Milk The Man". The steel boat thing is so yesterday. This could be a big hit for him and supplement that free "pension" he's about to score.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I found a lot of my ancestory in a book put out by Pemmican press in Winnipeg, called "A Geneology of The First Metis Nation. It had my ancestors going back to the 1700's . I gave my dad a copy and he was up til daylight reading it. He knew a lot of the people in it including my great great grandfather born 1838 , died 1942, a buffalo hunter for 30 years. I met his son when he was 100, who grew up in Dumont's buffalo camps in the Cypress hills.
My Grandmothers mother was Cree her grandfather was Norwegian. We have geneology of the Norwegian connection going back to King Halvdan the Black year 722.
