One for the money, two for the show,

three to get ready then go cats go......

Off in the big white bird in the morning kiddies. Theoretically off to a trade show in Germany but really it's to lob into Cascais and annoy the crap out of the dear old Portaloo. Very much looking forward to meeting the legendary man-o-war and family in person.

Eat him out of house and home, empty his booze cupboard and probably wreck his boat then bugger off home before the police arrive.

Behave yourselves while I'm gone but any reports of crazed wombats being thrown off a 747 twixt godszone and over there well, I plead guilty M'lud.

Love flying but hate airports. Will do my best to sack and pillage the Vodka supply at Sydney Airport before I leave. They say you shouldn't drink alcohol while flying so I'm always suitably pished before I get on board. Don't care what anyone says, 21 hours in the air can only be tolerated with an acceptable level of inebriation.

Woohoo !!

Arrivederci Comrades !! See you in a week or so. Keep your keels down and your masts up.

Wombat - are you flying the "light & {whatever} trade show in Frankfurt in Germany? I'm literally across the road from there right now, but am leaving for the Caribbean on Monday!

Hey TDW-

Remember the trick about the shrimp and curtain rods... but do it on the boat with the spinnaker pole.

Have a safe flight and say hi to the portagee and his family for us.

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.

Safe Trip Fuzzy...it is considered polite to bring a small gift of FRENCH wine when visiting homes in Portugal as they have only rare opportunities to enjoy good wine!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Make sure Alex takes lots of pictures, he's been slow with the photo mutilation lately.

Damn. Yes I was off to L & B but didn't see your post until now that I'm back in Sydney. We have an unerring ability to cross paths yet never manage to connect.

Can't say I blame you for splitting Frankfurt for the Carribean Z. Holy MF it was cold. Snowing for pete's sake. Snowed nearly all day Monday. Now I'm home and winter has descended on Sydney.
