"The Story of Ferdinand" I'm surprised you've not read it. Leaf wrote it as a childrens' book in 1936 I think. About a bull that would rather smell the flowers rather than bullfight, go figure.... Cause quite a stir when published because it was at the start of the Spanish revolution and was pretty pacifist in nature. Neither Franco nor Hitler were fans and had it banned. Somehow I thought our resident poet might appreciate the reference and that our friends on the east side of the pond might empathize.
Regards,

Ahhh thanks for the explanation...I never read it, I'm Portuguese, not Spanish...want to start a war??? do you????

Spanish (from Spain) are French people that learnt how to walk on 2 feet....

A bull that smell flowers, huh???? Sounds like "El Broko Mountain Bullo"

You guys are hilarious. Dockside comedians united. You must have really big boats to compensate for ....the weather. I got the humor and really did enjoy it. Made me smile.

I confess that the reference escaped me as well. I did read that book (hmmm, maybe a kids edition, maybe I just looked at the pictures and maybe it was someone reading to me, but it was not this century I can tell you. Hint - Hitler was about ten years gone and Franco still had his grip on Spain. I remember vaguely a kids edition of Don Quixote as well.

Just a note here guys, then I really do need to move on to another focus. In the short months of 2007 one friend is gone, his physical body parts blown here and there. Another is now left handed having lost his right arm. Sailing has been my escape from madness, to a world that has some form of reason. I should have never posted that damn description, it's just that the world seems so brilliant when the finality of it all is shoved in your face.

Improvise, adapt, overcome. We'll rejoin those gone before us on Fiddler's Green. Until then we do what we can for others and ourselves. Ever get out this way with any DAV's, ring me up. We run a special program for disabled sailors. Most of my guys are quads. It's not much, but it beats the heck out of sitting in the VAMC waiting for the inevitable.
Regards,

CBinRI-

By quoting their message, you're actually helping them... by giving them additional links for google to rank them by. D'OH. Also, when the mods get around to killing off their original spamming post, your quoted version will still be here.

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.
