This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!

What are they trying to tell us? We have to bathe before they'll rescue us?
That water is freezin' Bud! I ain't bathin' for no one!

130

And from my good friend in Mumbai!!


Hey! there's a Walmart here ! Never thought they'd have "Buy LifeBuoy Soap, get a floating tube free" deal. Now maybe Towels for Valentines!

was not as funny as yours.)

I'm with the old salts--no bathin' in the freezin' cold ocean! Great MM story, Syliva. Have a wonderful week, my friend.

Try just washing your feet, then, boys!

Susan Fobes said...

Through thick and thin and stink? LOL! I laughed at this one!

Jillien said...

they do look like they could use a good scrubbing! great mfm!

Diane said...

He's got his pride and all, that's better than a rescue.... :O)

Linda Reeder said...

Funny. I was thinking maybe the Missus wouldn't let him in the house till he cleaned up.

Karen said...

A shower before rescue?? Well, those fishermen probably do have quite an odor! :>

It's tough being shipwrecked:-)

septembermom said...

Very funny! Love the idea that they are repulsed by bathing. Terrific!

Jinksy said...

Only the spotless shall be saved?! LOL

Grandma's Goulash said...

Enjoyed both of those. I'm with them on cold bathing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

sylviamorice said...

Great story--and in defense of the poor fishermen--the water does look to be very cold! Can't say that I blame them for not wanting to bathe in it!
LOL.

Pooch said...

Rescue or a bath? Now there's a man with a fear of scrubbing or perhaps a terrible allergy?

:)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I like your sense of humor. The two old salts and the soap.

I've tried to participate because I'll try anything once and I just never come up with anything that sounds remotely witty.

storytreasury said...

I wouldn't bathe in the cold water either! lol

Hey, that's a good walmart sale

Ruthi said...

hahaha... I won't be taking a bath too if the water is freezing cold. nice one.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

ROFL! Yes, clean pirates! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments! <3

It was worth the wait to come read this Sylvia, Very nice. Good thing it isn't Saturday Night.

Oh, I sent you an invite to be friends on the Facebook. Just wondering if you got it.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
