    Actually, in this day and age I probably shouldn't even mention that I get along with dogs -- much less with children.:p

    But I was telling the truth. Back when I was a meter reader, I consistently walked through dogs other folks were terrified of, and stopped to talk to them and scratch their ears on the way out. And toddlers who are normally scared to death of strangers will latch onto me like I'm their favorite teddy bear.

    Unfortunately, the gals who own those dogs and mother those toddlers seem to be less impressed. Which doesn't surprise my wife. Although she claims to be fond of me herself, she's convinced no other woman in her right mind would put up with me.:(

    Troy my mate.

    Dogs are attracted to each other by scent. And dogs are attracted to you.

    Children like doggies, and children are attracted to you.

    Your wife is fond of you. People are fond of their pets.

    I'd reflect on that tonight while you are snugged up in your kennel. :rolleyes:

    My personal favorite; Seems kind of appropriate for a boating forum.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.
