    Old and still coool...

    Its not every day one gets to share an Amphi
    ride with someone in their mid 80's, much less
    a married couple - both over 80 years young!
    It was a terribly slow entry, as if we were in
    s-l-o-w motion with someone hitting the pause
    button every other second. Amphi and I did
    that on purpose of course. We reckoned we
    should do the slow entry rather than do a big
    splash and risk soiling someone's Depends or
    worse... cause a pacemaker to skip off. The
    couple truly loved Amphi and couldn't thank
    us enough. The sweet old lady even spoke to
    Amphi like he was one of her own. The old
    couple joined hands a walked away glowing.
    Hope Mermaid & I mange that level of grace
    in our later years.

    Met Steve & Connie with there red `64 Amphi
    for a little cruise. Fun having two Amphis
    in the same body of water. Later that evening
    Mermaid & I had a pizza and a bottle of wine
    on the lake. Anyone reading this who doesn't
    yet know the joys of the amphibious lifestyle
    needs to FIND AN AMPHI AND BUY IT!!!
