An Attempt at Sailing
Saturday 11 August 2007

Every so often during the summer months Jeff will invite some of us to tag along on a sailing expedition on the lake. Aboard the noble sailing craft of his father-in-law, Jim, we ply the seas seeking adventure. On this particular day we were plagued by a distinct lack of wind, a factor that we blamed on the participation of Charles.

After returning to dock we moved over to Jeff's to watch Master and Commander before eventually going to dinner at Applebees once Mr. Berry arrived.


Pillaging and looting, of course We got underway well enough, our hearts ready for a day of adventure on the high seas.

Is not a boat
Is a ship That's the good ship Columbia, a dredging vessel converted from an old U. S. Navy LST (landing ship, tank) from World War II.

And there will be no survivors Josh stakes a claim in the bounty vessel just in case we decide to board her.

It is a strong name Chaz also photographed Josh and his ship, soon to be renamed SS Fist of Josh's Fury.

Blast these doldrums! We finally got out onto the lake only for there to be no wind at all to catch the sails. The excitement is evident here.

I guess the ship got away While we drifted without wind, Columbia sailed past the nuclear power plant. Technology unchained!

Times were tough Jim and Charles barely exchanged eight words in four hours. I cannot say why this is.

That's a pun Josh considers a career in boat modeling.

So much for the wind Chaz and Josh and a motorboat in the background. By now we'd begun the trip back home.

For you cannot keep a bearded man down Charles gazes forward towards bold new adventures.

I know you've been waiting for this to happen It's usually not that long before Jeff winds up topless.

For there is no escape Back at the Osthimer pad we were joined by Mr. Berry and the shocking reminder that Jeff is everywhere.

Why would you do this! They shaved the cat! What a bizarre creature it appeared as.

It's the little things in life Mr. Berry is only truly happy when he is getting ready to order his dinner.

It was a delicious mess though While doing this little dance, Josh managed to leak the sauce from his leftover orange chicken all over himself.

But we all understand and accept this Sometimes Charles' programming kicks in and he tries to kill his friends before regaining control of his senses.
