All satire is blind to the forces liberated by decay. Which is why total decay has absorbed the forces of satire.

Life rafts: they come in all shapes and sizes these days! They reckon sixteen people will fit into this one. Sixteen!

Maybe if ten eat the other six...

On that note, here is today's Sunday Top Five: My All Time Top Five [interesting] Maritime Disasters!
5: SS Mont-Blanc

4: MV Wilhelm Gustloff

3: RMS Lusitania

2: Neva

1: Cataraqui

I didn't know that you were into maritime disasters!
What about the 50 man/women/person liferafts on the Spirits of Tasmania?
I don't think they were intended for a long stay.

What about the maritime disaster when Roddy fell and broke his leg, hmmmm???

Roddy said...

Two years sister, but I did bounce back.
As you would know my son,it was of no consequence. Speed hump in the highway of life.

Kris said...

Roddy, perhaps.

Kris said...

Sue, oh we can laugh about it now, but at time it was terrible.

Kris said...

Roddy, you've done nothing but moan ever since!

Sue said...

Terrible isn't the word for it...don't forget your dear mother sent him to my place for a while to recover!!??
(And if you aren't sure, Roddy... that was a joke!! I LOVED having you stay.)
