I figure it's just a matter of time before the dog and I are going to be stranded on a small island together, and I haven't taught him to go fetch the dinghy.

I feel much better Ray, thanks for sharing . See, no one looses rep points by coming clean, it can only have a positive result...I think.

what color is your tote? more importantly, what are you going to christen her?

I think this thread is going 'way off topic. Otter needs to tell us exactly how he ended up floating for more than eight hours hours in a heavily-trafficked west-coast port sitting in his own pink- striped fish-tote with a case of tequila before we start making up how it happened and how less than half the tequila was recovered.

Unfortunately I can't tell the whole story but I will tell you no alcohol was involved. It did involve a camera with a completely full SD card ie: no photos, and a wild animal strikingly similar to my avitar.

The tote was blue and I'm not sure where the bow is, so I don't know how to christen her. Additionally, I would rather not waste a good bottle of champaign on a stinky old blue tote, I could never do that.

OK, Bilge, now the excuses are gettin' weak. You mean you had a full SD card and couldn't find at least a few pics you could delete? Somebody's just not wantin' documentation.
