Cool! 'swivet' & 'cockalorum' in the same post. Two words that I had to look up. I love it when I can learn something new!

I really don't get all of these personal impugnments of my character. I simply don't understand the practice of waving at every boat that passes by.

I have never suggested that I wouldn't help a fellow boater (yes gasholes as well!) with their docklines. (Done it frequently); that I'm anti-social (have a vast coterie of friends (boater & non-boater, ragbags & stinkpots - some of my best friends are stinkpotters!); that I want to live in isolation (been there/done that - hello Waskaganish!); or that I don't like animals (love them!). I may have implied that I don't care much for children (not so much an implication as a statement of fact). It boggles my mind that almost everyone that has a problem with me not wanting to participate in such a ridiculous ritual have no aversion to offering me the one-digit salute and suggesting physical violence if I choose not to return their hand-waggling.

BTW I hope the last word in your post is your name and not your opinion of me.

Ah, welshman, welcome to the current sad state of the world..
If someone doesn't want to play along with the rest of the sheep, they must be a troublemaker and dealt with accordingly....

There must be something wrong with us for questioning such a practice.
If no one ever questioned anything, we'd all still be stuck in the Stone Age without really cool sailboats to enjoy.

Hmm, Iím thinking the curmudgeon threw a bit of bait in the water and caught more than the limit.

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

I bet the theme song wasn't as memorable.

or as easy to sing.

Two things you never hear on the welsh version of "Wheel of Fortune":
"No, I'm sorry, there are no f's."
"I'd like to buy a vowel- U"
