Meanwhile, I think I heard a bit of hushed mumbling from the 1st mate as she was simultaneously shoveling the driveway - Something about "those
idiot boys and their toy boats....."
By the way, did you notice the French colors? Never can tell what them guys might try!
I am laughing myself into a pain in the side. However I must point out that if we HAD to live up there in the tundra, the first mate would insist on a rotary snow plow for the front of the John Deere instead of a number 9 grain scoop.
Now for the French colors--I know what you are up to. You are trying to lure the unsuspecting into range then taking their rigging down with your chain or grape shot.
