    “Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs."

    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Excellent!
    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I attempted to buy several catboats in New England. I’m not certain it’s a joke.

    I would like to meet that poster, his cynicism, sarcasm, and sense of humor would be worth an afternoon sharing a bottle of scotch.

    We should all go in together on a decent bottle. First time I've laughed that hard this trying week. Commendable writing!

    Got an email from the prankster this morning. "Cheers... thanks for playing."
    He did not give his name, only the Craigs list number.
    Wish he could be a regular contributor, great sense of humor.
