from the Department of Redundancy Department

I don't drink while I'm sailing.

1. I don't weigh all that much, so it doesn't take much.

2. Many times it's just me and my husband on the boat. We can't afford to have half of our crew...

about Pearsons...

My husband has been sailing forever...I only started when I met him. He bought a sailboat about two months after we started dating, so it was either learn to sail or spend a lot of time alone.

How old was your cat when you trained him? I have a 1 1/2 year old and a 4 month old. How long did this take? I''m sure my husband will be thrilled to find cat stuff in the toilet! :)
