    A Ship that calls a spade a spade

    Ever since I saw this ship, wondered who on earth thought up this name - Costa Fortuna - any more like that.

      I know!!!




      I came back from the port one morning with pics of her..

      ..told me wife the name and she said "Well, we won't be going on that one,dear"


      Being a bit thick at times, it went clean over my head
      so I asked Why not??

      "The name, dear? Think about it!" she said.





      Why are wives always so clever, and ahead of us?
      Or izzit just me?


      It's me, innit?

        A new thread in which we make suggestions for ships to be renamed might also be fun.

          It's got to do with the pecking order Aplmac. We are the hen's, you are pecked. But you all love us really! Carol.

                  Seeing as I'm twice married now
                  I have understood the above Grim Reality for a good while
                  and will admit that I'm quite dependent on my wife, but then too she is on me as well.

                  It's second marriages for both of us, and we both agree it's much better second time around
                  to the point where we often wonder about absolute perfection
                  by the time the Third one comes around! :D


                  N.B. Four is ridiculous: -you should know better by then.

                    Correction - it's in the 'fun' section.

                        Absolute perfection ? :D Do you still believe in the Tooth Fairy too ? ( Just tongue in cheek by the way, I have been called a SmartAss on this forum for trying to be amusing and would hate to step on anyone's toes! ).

                        I agree that four is not only ridiculous it's also very expensive . Think we all should stay with the slightly imperfect marriage number two.
