If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Born the day Babe Ruth died. Thought I was going to be a really good baseball player until I started to play baseball. So you don't have to look it up, 63 last birthday.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.

What good things took place the years you guys were born? I often wonder this about 1975, the year I was born... Did anything great happen in 75? You should know, you're OLD!

And in the future, Happy Birthday guys and gals...

I just did some research. As near as I can figure the only thing of even minor note that occured in 1975, other than the last chopper out of Saigon, was that Captain and Tennille released "Love Will Keep Us Together."

If that was the highlight of 1975, no wonder it has been blocked from everyone's memory

I'm sure great things happened in '75

just can't remember them.

As someone said ( can't remember who though) "If you remember the sixties you weren't there.......
Same for the 70's, 80's and so on. Not that this is a bad thing all the time.


(..... thank google, it was Robin Williams)
