So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

Certifiable

Oregon is now requiring boat drivers to pass a written test and obtain a Boater Education Card. Because they can.

Last night I took the test, open-book. Wound up getting 74 out of 75 correct. Misread the book on a homeland security question. I'm sure I'm on a watchlist somewhere now, but since it's unlikely the US Navy's going to host Fleet Week on our lake I think I'm okay to take the ski boat out for a spin and not wind up in Guantanamo.

So I printed out my temporary certificate and ordered a "permanent" card (permanent until the state wants some more money and requires everyone to take the test again). This afternoon I get to keelhaul some campers; just because they happen to be floating on innertubes whilst being hauled doesn't need to spoil my fun. Aarrrrgghhhh! (Piracy was not covered in the boating test.)

You're on my watchlist. Well, isn't a blogline a watchlist? :)

Hmmm. Your middle name isn't Mahmoud, is it?

Take a right at Guantanamo and head to Bayamo, then up into the mountains, and say hi to my cousins, would ya?

Don't forget to keep score - 10 pts if you get a camper off the inner tubes, or 30 pts if you get both campers off on the first turn!! (but only for the number 3 rides)

Sounds like fun

Mir, you're killing me here...

Kanga, I scored many a point today. Had one kid off before the first turn, then his buddy fell off when I circled back to get him. Apparently we have to go over why there are straps for them to hold on to...
