Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Sorry for you Smack. You have posted and made many of us think outside of our normal zones. I pray for you, your boys and your dear wife. She has left you two boys. Do all you can to find your way. So sorry for you, your sailnet mate, Lou452

Why would you mail him some vegemite?? I mean.... what if he, ya' know, EATS IT? That's like kicking him when he's down...

A favorite story of mine: I was working in the ER in "The Isa" (which is a god-forsaken remote mining town in SW Queensland. The director of the ER was winging about his headache. The big Welsh charge nurse "Taffy" told him, with a look of concearn, you should lay on the floor. Right here on the concrete floor."

"Why" asked the ER doc?

Taffy yells (in front of all the patients and staff): "Because you need to HTFU!"

I love Australia.

P.S. Took me 5 years living in Australia before I could stomach the stuff, and maybe even like it a little...

This does sound like very thoughtful and good advice. I don't think it applies to boats though. You need a "rebound boat" .

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

There is no comparison between Vegemite and Marmite.
Marmite is for people who put little umbrellas in their drinks and go to musicals. Vegemite is for manly men.
I am sending a big jar of Vegemite to Smackers so he can enjoy the fun of seeing the looks on his boys faces when they try to eat it.

For a little cultural background on HTFU you can Google "Chopper HTFU".
Take that little umbrella out of your drink first.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Vegemite is for those **** Aussies with their little glasses of beer.



Real men drink pints, and a real pint is 568ml. No more, no less.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

You know I had a beer glass, an Australian middy. It was my Dad's glass. He brought it with him to the US in 1957. A flaky friend of mine used it one weekend at the shack and he broke it. He laughed it off. It was my Dad's glass.

So, suck on your insipid Marmite and leave the Vegemite to those of us who think a
"Use by Feb 2008" is a joke. How could Vegemite possibly go bad?
