St. Anna—

Technically, that ain't a photo...so TDW did what you requested... LOL.

It is a bit worrying that he has access to images like that so readily though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

So, just a question - Can we assume you are not so furry, wear underwear that requires anodes and expose your caricature on the web ?

At least I know I'll fit in (wont stand out in the crowd)

Mick....are you suggesting my anodes are in conflict ? or should I have wired my tinfoil in series instead of parallel ? this is distressing...or in light of my fast fading furriness, should that be detressing ?

so StAnna.....we admit to progressive follicular challenge though I'm still way ahead of the Dog. Anodic degeneration is a problem. I thought a change from AC to DC might give me a boost but the Wombet did not approve.

as for fighting...heed ye the words of Ogden Nash
The wombat lives across the seas,
Among the far Antipodes.
He may exist on nuts and berries,
Or then again, on missionaries;
His distant habitat precludes
Conclusive knowledge of his moods,
But I would not engage the wombat
In any form of mortal combat.

Point taken Fuzzy,

However, if the galvanic and follicular degradation continues, should you be aligned with the quieter species known as the NUMBAT

At the risk of derailing this derailment.. TD and others - have you looked into the Sunware line of flexible panels?
