Boasun May not be nautical but: Kid's Inheritance.
Now that would be a good one.

Nitro it too late to return the cat?

I'm sorry but after 15 years of owning Weimaraner's without kids and a several year reprieve, I got the bright idea that Santa should deliver my young kids a pair of MC's. My thinking was, MC's are most like dogs but can be left alone for a couple days while I go sailing, right?

These now 2.5 yr. old MC's have proven to be absolutely fantastic with infants and small kids. In fairness, they damage nothing unless one of them has a spontaneous neurotic episode and does a Fred Flintstone escape. I suppose they are great 'cat's but stupid by comparison to the Weimeraners. Can a cat truly be your friend? These two nocturnal demons run laps around the house at night, ambush each other and sound like small elephants in a china cabinet. If I have to listen to them bitch me out in the morning for the next 20 years - every morning - to be fed at 06:00 religiously - or retaliate by waking up my young kids to start my day regardless if I chose to ignore them - I'll go nuts. Not even an auto feeder helps....oh sure, they'll eat but then wake me up anyway.

Names? How about, 'Damnit'?

FishSticks Well, I tried. Hoping you might have a beer as a consolation prize for me when you see me anchored there.

LarryandSusanMacDonald True Story: Some folks we used to know, live-aboards; She wanted a cat- he said no way. But he finally agreed - he said she could get her cat, but he got to name it. And the cat she got was named $hithead. It was fun listening to her call the cat out on the dock on an almost daily basis.

Kiltmadoc Thanks everyone for entertaining suggestions and some brief stories. In the end, we whittled it down to two names. And we went with: in Casco Bay, ME

...and we are now trying to teach our 4 year old son not to say "Costco." :-)
