Re: Shameless plug

Come on, jones, we already knew that

Keep'em coming, mate. There is something great about a blog that discusses the dock and friends there as much as the sailing on the water.

Re: Shameless plug

Jonesy, none of us doubt you are simple minded but you make us laugh and you like dogs.

Adolf Hitler aside people who like dogs and make me laugh are alright by me, simple minded or not.

Of course, owning up to your mistakes is either ample evidence of your high moral calibre or simply more simple mindedness.

The jury has called for more beer.

Note to self- do not attempt to bleed a yanmar diesel while it is running. Your wrench-wielding hand will interact negatively with the whirring alternator pulley.

it's just been that kind of month.

BTDT. I've got a nifty permanent crease in my right index finger as a reminder that I'm an idoit too.

As I was finishing replacing the water pump on my Cherokee several years back, the better half got curious and asked what I'd been up to. While the engine was idling merrily, I took the time to point out the part I had just replaced -- and sure enough stuck my finger into the path of the fan blade. Kind of freaked the soon-to-be wife out, what with the sudden splash and eruption of blood. What also creeped her out a bit was that I calmly looked at my finger and said "Can you do me a favor and grab a couple of paper towels?"

Seeing as that we were in the former USSR at the time, I declined to seek medical treatment and just patched it up with some 100MPH tape and liberal application of Neosporin.

Re: Shameless plug

BLJ,
You've got to stop making yourself sound like you are invincible and perfect. Show us your human side for the sake of your sports dog!

Chronicling my "F" ups in my blog helps me learn and reminds me that I am only human and an inherently flawed individual. I strive to do better despite my baser instincts.

Three cheers for the different shirt!
