Here, it looks Arabic.

Here's one for the Islamophobes.

I'm not convinced.

I still think Murph is letting the terrorists win.

It's small but fast and fun. I still want a 16 someday but I think this was the right choice for our bay. It's super easy for my wife to learn on... It has no center... so it only needs 9 inches... It's a tough polymer... and most importantly, it has beer holders.

Another neat feature is that the mast rotates... This will be a nice feature to build up my wife's confidence as she learns...it herself.



That was all extremely interesting to me. Now are you gonna tell us about the boat?

Your first comment was hilarious Bob.
Peter, Goggle doesn't come up with anything to help me figure out what "jifling" is. However, since you followed up one of Bob's posts with it, I'm thinking I don't want to know.

Mark, I'm not letting the terrorists win. It's just a propaganda tactic to keep them confused until we work out the bugs in our Celine Dion Fembot. Then we will have an audio-based weapon that will terrorize all terrorists into submission.

It could have been worse. We looked at a Hobie 16 that came up from Florida with a jib done up after the Spirit of 76 flag, blue with a circle of 13 stars. To me that is the nautical inequivalent of putting the Confederate flag on an Orange Dodge Charger.

Sorry, I guess my sailing lessons weren't like anyone else's. JIFL is the acronym (pronounced "jiffle") my instructor used to teach us where to trim the sail. It stands for "Just In From Luffing". If your sail is currently flapping, pull it in until it just stops. If it isn't flapping, let it out until it just starts, then pull it back in a bit.

Lemme put it like this, ya Yankee:

Here's my last family reunion:



Every doctor needs a nice car. Nothing too fancy to reflect vanity, or inspire jealousy or envy, but nothing so cheap that it'd make people wonder if the doctor was worth his salt and thus unable to afford a reasonable car. That said, here is my personal vehicle:



Now, I can hear you wishin' you could get your hands on a fine piece of machinery like that, but thinkin' that it'd be tough to corner and park that thing in the big city. Well, shoot, have I got the car for YOU:



Back here at the farm, Medic8r Jr. was such a good boy for his birthday that we done got him his own personal vehicle:



He's all proud 'cause it matches his school bus:



For those short trips to the bait shop, I use my scooter:



Course, I can't go fishin' unlest I'm done with my chores, including mowing the lawn. Sometimes my wife helps:



We head to our favorite fishin' hole in our recreational vehicle:



Of course, none of these freedoms with be possible without the sacrifices made by my cousins, PFC Otis Medic8r and CPL Bubba Medic8r:



Have a nice day now, ya hear?
