Yes, I did have a day like this many years ago, but it involved getting a 26-foot sailboat back on the trailer with the tide going out and the sun setting into total darkness. Oh, and there was a low bridge and I wasn't certain if the mast was higher than the bridge was lower. And my wife trying to give insructions. Land or sea, it's not a good experience, though it makes for good storytelling over a beer.

I'm at home, sick in bed with 102* fever and laughing out loud! That was JUST the right medicine. Thanks!

Roger

On edit:

Since I was lying here near death today and have nothing better to do (and can't find two brain cells to rub together), I thought I'd explore a little, and that clip is just a small part of 30 minute English show called "Top Gear". The entire show is presented in 9 minute clips and is DEFINATELY worth a watch if you have the time to spend! It'll make you reconsider why we "caravan"!

You are welcome, and I hope you feel better soon... being sick is no fun. Sounds like you're taking advantage of your confinement to keep yourself entertained!

I saw the longer clips as well and they are a riot... they could become classics in the RV world. Perhaps they could be required viewing at the dealer before one is allowed to buy a "bulgemobile"... if more people watched them it might help curb overcrowding at campsites!

I love the big hole they've manage to rip in the thing before they even get to the campground... yikes!

Get back to work! So this is how you spend your time when you say you are too busy to talk to me.

JUST KIDDING! We are married if you can't guess.

Ah, the modern Internet marriage...

I know how it is... I see my wife so infrequently between her work and mine it seems like the only kissing we get done is through email!

I can see it now...

"Sir Robin, verily it is thy turn to back the Caravan into yon campsite..."

"Run Away!!"

Sounds like the clip I saw the other day (part of the occasional cross fertilization between us and one of the teardrop groups). Lots of fun.

What papers are you NOT grading??? You're welcome to take over some of mine. I'm WAY behind having been stuck at home for the last 2 days sick as a dog.

On an unrelated and perhaps fever induced point... where do we get that expression "sick as a dog" anyway??? I've watched my two dogs do (and roll in, and EAT) some truely unspeakable things and never ONCE gotten sick!

Quoted from http://www.word-detective.com/061202.html

"Sick as a dog," which means "extremely sick" and dates back to at least the 17th century, is also not so much negative as it is simply descriptive. Anyone who knows dogs knows that while they can and often will eat absolutely anything, on those occasions when their diet disagrees with them the results can be quite dramatic. And while Americans may consider themselves "sick" when they have a bad cold, in Britain that would be called "feeling ill." "Being sick" in Britain usually means "to vomit."

So to really appreciate the original sense of "sick as a dog," imagine yourself seated in the parlor having tea with the Vicar on a lovely Sunday afternoon, when Fido staggers in from a meal of sun-dried woodchuck and expresses his unease all over your heirloom oriental carpet. It's actually rather amazing that goldfish aren't more popular.

At the risk of dragging this conversation further down an unhappy pathway...

For both myself and my dogs - that was the manner in which I was using the expression.

ya know... when you're NOT sick - the appropriate smiley here seems to be:

but this one really shows more how I felt:

Back to grading purgatory...
