Totally out of control. I love it. I wonder if all those retailers are really going to come through on the containerload of gear.

He seems to be doing an awful lot of denial about how he keeps himself warm in the water... I don't believe it one bit.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

I love it!!

So happy that the auction has gotten so much attention & the charity slant.....

Quite frankly, as a woman with a small bladder, I always P*ss in my wetsuit...and I would never buy or sell one that is used for that reason!

DH on the other hand, wears a "shorty" and discretely pulls it up to let the Trouser Eel loose behind a Coral Head 2 P.....hey, if the fish do it, why not?

(we are scuba divers of course....)
When a contradiction is impossible to resolve except by a lie, then we know that it is really a door.

Interesting history: " it was hung on a hangar"

Wetsuit as windsock?
