On the islands EVERYTHING was turned into a toy boat: fishing net corks, pop cans, styrofoam, blocks of wood, bottles, etc. They were functional boats, we put bolts for ballast under them if needed, and they often had functional masts and rigging. The art on the walls at the school was boats, boats and more boats with a few planes thrown in for good measure. We made many types of paper airplanes that we would throw around the one room school during recess if we were allowed to stay inside when the storms were too bad.
ok lets talk polar bears for a minute here , didn't you grow up with the nagging perpetual fear that they would snatch you away and drag you down to their kingdom in the underworld!! I mean , um ... weren't you afraid they would get you? ya don't ask it's a long story LOL but seriously they were everywhere, just waiting!

THE most vivid memory I have of a nightmare from my childhood is a polar bear menacing me in my bed at the cottage. I woke up screaming and went to my parents bed and then I "saw" him again out their window. And I didn't even live in polar bear territory.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

When I've done fishing trips up there, brown bears were the biggest problem, but that was on the islands near Ketchikan, way down south in the balmy Alaska panhandle. What is the difference between brown bears and grizzlies? I just don't know enough about bears evidently
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
if your that close to a wild Grizzly then your pretty much a dead man walking. Backing away at that point is kind of a moot issue. you need to startle the bear some how, prey that it works and then RUN LIKE A BOSS!!

Happy belated Birthday, Squirmydad! Many Happy Returns. Here are sincere hopes that this finds you, and those you love, happy, healthy, and blessed on the anniversary of your birth and for the rest of the year to come. May any God or gods you worship watch over you in the year to come. If you worship none, do not be offended that I have asked at least one whom I venerate to watch over you.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

Happy VERY belated Birthday, squirmydad! Sorry it took me this long to see this thread. I've been very busy with building terrain and things for my own game. I am trying to get as much done as I can before the winter because I may have a knee replacement surgery then and won't be much in the mood for such things.
In any case, I hope that you had a splendid day and will have an even more splendid year!
I am the Lady, thy Dungeon Mistress! All will love and fear me! Muahahahahah!
Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh

Vermin King: Back in my younger days, I tried to get 'Trick or Drink' running. We would go door to door in costume with our Halloween-themed rocks glasses in hand.

shep: On the other hand, Halloween is not that big for kids, here in Germany, anyways. It's more an excuse for teens and young adults to dress up and have a party... and for the latter ones to get drunk beyond speaking their native tongue...

shep: "A ninja, a mage, a knight, and a fish enter a tavern..." Wait this is no joke??!? Great costumes! The kids in my neighborhood were, as always, either too shy or too lazy to climb up into the third floor (40 steps, man, 40 steps!)...
