When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Dr.C, did that have a Berkley Jet in it or prop? A guy I worked with back in the 70s had a Berkley Jet pump on a boat that would do 80 and I skied behind that bad boy...

You're my hero, small! I could never talk anyone into skiing behind it, much less 3 or 4 or 5 at once... which I really, really wanted to do. (A strong jet begs to pull a load.)

From the rear, you can see the pump and the ski eye.

Not too many volunteers around then either! It wasn't like normal skiing, mainly just holding on for dear life and didn't dare cross the wake thinking the driver would try to sling me...it was bad enough in the wake.

Photo dated 1907 - Vernon BC. My cousin now owns the tiny big house on the hill. (Center of image, above the road and trees.)
