from the 2004 Siltcoos Lake Messabout (By John
||The Coot's Cookbook
||"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolute
nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
Simply messing... about in boats -- or with boats. In or out of 'em, it
doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it.
Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your
destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never
get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in
particular; and when you 've done it there's always something else to
do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not." (Ratty)
