Hi all. My grandmother always said that "there is no need to be dumb unless
you show it." So the other night at about 11:45 when we ran OUT OF GAS about
a mile and a half off shore, I thought of her. We did have life preservers
but no paddles. So without hesitation I jumped in the water got behind the
car and started to kick it in. Well, it turns out that if you try hard you
can get a top speed of about one mile an hour. So ninety minutes later I was
able to end up at the ramp front wheels first but it wernt easy. You can do
it if you have too, but as my grandmother always said "there is no need to be
dumb unless you show it." Tommy (the dumb one) and Lynne in Tampa
