@Ferret - good work man - an' - does ye really call THAT a beard?  ( just tryin' to annoy the cap'n into givin' him a reason fer a plank-walkin' or keel-haulin' - I knows how much ye enjoys 'em !   I'm not too keen on the idea tho' )

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

 @gwscheer I sat right back and enjoyed that.  I think that was a picture of Maynard G. Krebs at the end, but with just a moustache instead of a full goatee. 

 @Ferret Thanks for the voyage.
