    I am officially a student again - so please excuse me if I get a bit supercilious with you older farts now.

    alrighty
    Master Bates


    BTW Does your academy have a rite of passage involving Roger the Cabin Boy?

    Or does it revolve around the man in the boat?

    (old tired jokes will abound on this thread)

    Jokes about riding the Black Pig are off limits!

    And about her being full of seamen for that matter.

    As in "Long and hard and full of seamen." Right then, never that. Acknowledged.:wink:


    A word or two of advice:
    Watch out for dingly dangly crabs. And Pirate Willy is not to be trusted.

    ah cool.

    I went back to a local college for two semesters in 2003-2004 and sat there with students in their late teens and early twenties. I like the atmosphere of learning and made connections there that will last a lifetime.

    The learning process never gets old.

    Good luck LPD.

    I can't claim any academic relevance in my course. I just need to refresh my ticket so that I can get back on the ocean waves. Anyone who addresses me as "Hello Sailor" should be prepared for my most concerted reposte.

    I am probably the third youngest on the course - sheeeesh.

    Now I have taken the first step - I may have a look at something a little moe challenging.

    Pirate Willy can kiss me barnacles!

    I will have an official ticket to ride as it were dear MB, to plough the waves. From the Royal Yachting Association, no less. Big cock gigolo, by Royal appointment.
