I don't know, the competition would probably want to eat your crew if they lost the Wednesday night club race.

An adventurous friend of mine is interested, she is a farmerís daughter, has strong nose and has the necessary experience. She carries her own shovel and not afraid of the work. She has the pictures ready to send but there are questions:
1 - Boots or Deck shoes?
2 - Cow-weather gear required?
3 - Paid hand or shared expenses?
She is good with the shovel but will not be able to do any milking due to arthritic fingers. She needs to know the answer to question 3 as she is looking to augment her social security benefits.

Tatia,

Like all posts looking for a "mate" on Sailnet, the answers (and articles of clothing) depend on the pictures. Good hands are a must.

Not my idea, I'm just following the convention.

Brad

A cow, a bull and an umbrella walk into a bar. The bull orders two Gin Fizzes for him and his lady, and a double Gin Martini for the umbrella. The bartender and bovines laugh it up for half an hour as they keep downing drinks and regaling him with stories of their sailing adventures. The umbrella just sits there, looking down into his drink.

"Hey what's up with the umbrella?", the bartender asks, "He hasn't said a word."

The cow lowers her voice, "Oh, he rarely opens up."

Mwaaaaaahhhhhhh!

(Okay, not as good as my historical "Two Trolls, a Monkey, and a Duck" joke. But it'll do.)

Didn't know you actually had a joke to back that up.
