Paddling.....

.... good morning, rubberneckers........ I trust that you all are preparing for a lovely, pre-back-to-school morning of quiet reflection and/or fun frolics with your kiddies or significant peripherals.....

... as for me?.... no such luck, I'm afraid.....

.... for it has been handed down From Upon High that I am to spend the better half of today practicing my Ben Hur impersonation and manning an oar.....(.. the middle part of Ben Hur, of course.... goodness knows that I'd be absolutely dangerous in a chariot..)

... and so we're off to The Ocoee River where a rubber raft & roiling Tennessee waters shall stage today's scene......

..... my goodness....... were I feeling remotely Shakespearian this morning I would wax on and on about the majesty of Nature's tumult and the beauty of an obscuring turbidity...... but, no.... I'm off to search for sunscreen instead.....

..... hey, at least I know that I am a very, very hard person to drown!..

.... just look at those guys!...... I think the one way in the back at 1:11 even has an "Adventures Unlimited" baseball cap on!......

Bullshit So Far

We purchased some sunscreen a while back for the daughter (genuine redhead keep out of direct sunlight) it was SPF 85. Also useful for vampires.

Certainly a late summer day on the chilly Ocoee does not translate into a 'hell of human woe.'

I think I got that going on out here, bro. Say the word and I'll swap you in a heartbeat.

Will The Missus be standin over you with that lash? That'd be a sight to see...

Hell of human woe!! Oh, my goodness, way over-done drama there, sir!

A beautiful day with a loved one, with not all THAT much effort on your part -- how nice. Enjoy.

And, Andy, you have hell of human woe, too? Stop it. My goodness! Shame on both of you.

As soon as I read what you were doing I thought, "Sunscreen! Otherwise that nightmare will come true!!"

Whine whine whine. Physical pain. Big deal. Watching the Browns non-Defense. Now that's pain.
