The Minnow

Just sit right back & you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailing man, The skipper brave & sure.

Five passengers set sail that day for a three hour tour,
A three hour tour

The weather started getting rough, the engine smoked alot.

If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The Minnow would be lost,
The Minnow would be lost.

That, my friends, is my version of our harrowing, death-defying trip across Lago Trasimeno!
Now, we shall see how Alessandra tries to spin it in the face of my photographic evidence.

Alessandra from Italy:

Well....
... haemmm.....
............uuhh......

....we landed, right?!?!?!

Deborah responds: We didn't just land, Alessandra. We glidded gracefully into port. :evil grin:

Brad'll Do It:

I didn't know that Alessandra wore green makeup. Oh! It's NOT makeup?
Your post, Deborah, is darling, very cute and creative.

Deborah responds: Brad, it was funny. Tanya and I named the boat the Minnow, for the obvious reason, but Alessandra had forgotten all about the TV show. She had called the boat Titanic II. Minnow is much more appropriate. However, with that great woven canopy, African Queen does come to mind, doesn't it?

Anne:

Oh that is funny! The name "Minnow" and theme song fit perfectly!

Funny post! I've been patiently waiting to see the pictures of what REALLY happened that day.

The boat looks like Popeye's.

Deborah responds: I have a great picture of Dan pretending to panic and put on his life jacket. But he looks so goofy, he made me promise not to post it. :drat:
But,I do have a lot of other pictures of the festival AFTER we actually got safely off The Minnow. :grin:
I'll post them when I get to the Italy part of our trip.

Fun post and very creative!! I remember reading about this on the ST board. Love the photos!!

Kim:

Classic, should have come with a spew warning!

Deborah responds:
:evil grin:
Wish there were a way to put our ST gremlins in the blogs.

Kim:

You know Deborah, where there's a will, there's a way. :)

aH~ Haa!
I've been waiting for the 'rest of the story'.
Good job MaryAnn!
