I prefer German Shepard to Chihuahua. At least the way they cooked them locally. ::unknowncomic::

I had to look. I'm glad I did. I thought this was so inadvertently funny - #HeadsOnPikes

That has so much photoshop potential.

Newp; no shade.  I'd rather have a pontoon boat.

When I was about 14 my older brother and I built a raft almost exactly like that. Most of it was constructed of salvage materials. We had no plans other than the idea that my brother held in his head. It just had a deck - no bench (or what ever that is). It did include the mount for an outboard motor.

My dad inspected it upon completion and was impressed (which was impressive all by itself!).

The next part is the most fantastic.....our folks allowed us to sail her around the lake! We lived on Lake Washington which is 22 miles long. We ran the perimeter of the lake, hugging the shoreline (trust is earned, not implicit!) and tying up under the overpass of the floating bridge at night. It took us the better part of three days to make the run. There are (or were) gasdocks at various locations so fuel and supplies weren't a problem. We never failed to attract attention wherever we went - it was quite the novelty craft!

We had a minimal tookit with us and had to adjust the tension on the guy wires that held the raft together but that was the only repairs or modifications we did. Dad made us carry lifejackets and a little firstaid kit.

The trip was a complete success and we arrived back home none the worse for wear. The raft that carried us safely (so to speak) was retired from active duty and anchored just offshore to be used as a swimming platform where it served many seasons.

Think about it - would you let your kids float away on something like that today?

At 14? Sure. But then I have a boat so I can track progress.

Can't do that any more. LDWF frowns on drinking and boating. They lost their sense of humor loooong ago. Even go so far as to put the DWI on your driving record.

Speaking of cows, I have an odd, local sight to share.  Have you heard the meme about people getting random Chinese characters tattooed on themselves, not knowing that they mean?  As in they might mean "kick me" or "tiny wee wee" and nobody is the wiser?  The opposite happens in Asia, where people wear shirts with random English phrases they probably have no idea what they mean.  I saw a large (tall and fat) woman wearing a shirt with the English phrase, "Think Cattle."  I somehow resisted the urge to moo at her when I walked past.   ::evilbat::

I can't help but wonder just WTH she thought it said.
