Having the Annual Amphipoda Award plaque
made and the bloke behind the counter is just
busting to ask me what on earth I'm up to.
Given I don't want to spill the proverbial beans
here on our little message board I can't divulge
exactly what I'm mounting for whom, but I did
tell him it's part of an Amphicar. He did not
get it at first, so I repeated myself a time or two.
So this guy, a portly mid 50's hippie dude, takes
a step and stagers back and then mouths the letters
A-M-P-H-I-C-A-R. It was obvious this gentleman
has been too close to the engraving dust for far
too long. Then a light went on in his head and he
had total recall... yes my fine finned friends - my
local plaque & award shop keeper is (or was) one
of us! A former owner of a 67 White Amphi who,
back in the psychedelic 60's, took great pride in
consuming mass quantities of illicit drugs and
washing them down with John Daniel's* whiskey
while floating a flotilla of young partially clad
ladies in his little white Amphi. Now it was my
turn to staggered back a few steps having been
overwhelmed the visual picture he portrayed.
After I recovered I asked about his Amphi.
Sadly he said his Amphi sank out from under
him one day and is believed to be part of the
coral reef off the coast of Los Angles. As you
might imagine he neglected to maintain his hull
(or the contents of his skull for that matter). Not
a happy ending really, but an interesting tale none
the less. Anyway, the second Annual Amphipoda
Award is a done deal and needs only to be
presented to its rightful recipient. If you are
attending Celina 2001 then you too will see this
magnificent award, the Annual Amphipoda
Award, presented to the Amphibian of the Year
2001. Could be good for a laugh or two.

* I also inquired about the award-n-plaque dudes
reference to "John Daniel's Whiskey." I fell for
it with both fins... He said he knew Jack Daniel's
so well that they were on a first name basis. Doh!
