They must be a bit slow though.

They are undeniably quaint and must chugg-chugg all day with a wee diesel in there.

I liked the link... a brave woman that one.

I heard that! Fluffy, you're treading on thin ice with that last little missive. The Flicka is my dream boat. I leave those other topics to your ministrations. Only you have the sensitivity and compassion to deal with them properly. (g)

Sway, were you the one a while back talking about the kitchen remodel vs the Flicka?

You b******! Had to bring that one up didn't you? Go ahead, kick a guy when he's down. Just for your personal satisfaction I'll update to let you know I still have neither a kitchen nor a Flicka. I also have a wife and a dog. I am gratified to report that all is well with the dog. (g)

Fluffy sent me a PM and told me to ask, personally, I had forgotten all about it.

Well, Fluffy would fit right in with you in San Francisco, if you know what I mean. And you can tell him I said so. (g)

You Dirty Dog BF . Infamy infamy , the've all got it in for me.

Sway and his Friend Flicka. Such an endearing thought.

If he had a boat, he'd go out on the ocean, Sway upon his pony of a boat. (with apologies to Lyle Lovett)

Well at least I wouldn't have to bend over backwards to fit in.

Are you saying "flicka" or "flipper" ? I can't tell with your accent. I keep hearing the tune from Flipper in my head, but its "flicka".

BF obviously working on second speed today !!

OK so Flipper is more nautical perhaps but Flicka was the word. Maybe BF is too young to remember "My Friend Flicka". Either that or too old to remember anything much at all. Or is that me ? Sometimes it's hard to tell.
