ahoy, ahoy!



Yep, ol' slothy is heading au Cod once again, for the count 'em FIFTH visit this summer, and it won't be the last by a long chalk. Believe me, it ain't no party, and I guess it's time to come clean. The reason for the frequent visits is that I took a secret summer job rowing tourists across the bay. The pay is low, but the glamour factor is high, and it's done wonders for my upper-body strength...

It is also the annual Sloth Family Jamboree this weekend. I have started marinating my brain in grain alcohol and Sterno® to prepare.

Yes, FB, that friendly fellow in the boat operates one of the finer concession stands there. I've been warming up for our journey in the batting cage, and fueling up on cotton candy & skittles for energy. The freak show has also been useful... it is helping me to prepare mentally.

Sloth, you're gonna be ripped after a few trips across the water like this.
I may have to give you my T-shirt that says "I need some band-aids for all these cuts" and it has arrows pointing to arms, shoulders, etc.

yarrr, scally-wags, reporting from the poop deck: the ship she's listing, but we've got the bilge pump "Old Betsey" running full-time, so staying mostly afloat for now...
