Thanks to whoever changed the description under my user name to "Happy Man in a Boat."  ;D

Happy Man in a Tesla

Teslas are the best cars ever made. But I'm really, truly, at my happiest when I'm paddling in an outrigger canoe. And when I get splashed (twice a week we take out visitors who've never paddled before) it's never cold. And most days I jump in the water for a while anyway.

Which reminds me, anyone reading this who is planning on visiting Maui, PM me and I'll tell you where the canoe clubs are and when to be there if you want to come out and paddle with us. Typically an hour on the water, including ten or fifteen minutes to jump out and swim if you are so inclined. Probably no swimming in the winter months because we'll be looking for whales, and getting in the water with the whales is prohibited in Hawaii.

Nice title! Good to know daniel is also a "reef tank owner"   >:D

I'm not looking forward to that title should I ever reach the number of posts he has.

I have considered going incognito again but I love the title she gave me way too much to give it up.

Probably senility setting in, but I've forgotten what "reef tank owner" means, even though there was a whole thread about it a short while back. I'm too lazy to look it up now.

ETA: I think you get that descriptor when you reach a certain post count. But I remember that it was also supposed to mean something.

I know there used to be a thread for ask for custom titles, and even at some point, the forum software allowed it as well as normal personal text(?)

Yes!  And PANTS! and amysrevenge, and another one or two I remembered last night, but now can't recall.

Pshaw, isn't it more fun when a custom title just...appears?  ;)

You can create your own text below your avatar. I think only a Mod can make a custom descriptor above your avatar.

YES!
