Getting Old

I'm officially old. When I saw this.

My first thought was: Geeze, that boat's awfully close to the shoals. I hope it doesn't draw much.

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased

What Boat is right!

Bowman ... I saw that too and tried to make a joke of it on the "other" sailboat site ... then went back to the SI website .. and found out they photoshopped the sailboat out of the picture!!!! go figure ... some people have no taste.

I am primarily a leg man but I have to say she looks a little baggy upstairs for my taste. Just sayin'. But that boat is a little close to the shoal.

I thought the Lexus "Curves" ad for sponsoring the issue was more appealing.

You know you're old though, when a healthy dump and a good hot shower are as good as sex. (attention bljones)
