FUC5.2 - a casual observer could be forgiven for thinking that I had
lost faith in the Feeesh's infallibility :-)
 
Not so, my BHD reveals that I merely commented:

[from 7 Oct 1997 "Re: Greece- diving + dolphins-Jackie's Response;)"]
 
  FUC6.3 ! Well, it's pretty rare that the Feeesh gets caught with his
  scales down, but this looks like it :-)
 
  (or is it FUC5.3 for me, Bob?)
</quote>
 
And, of course, I *was* wrong again !!
 
>What a let down that was ...  to Doug et al (not about Cousteau,
>but about their unsuccessful attempt to guillotine the Feesh's
>tail). ;-)
 
Nah, no let-down. I was quite relieved that Feeesh turned out right
again. It kinda renewed my faith in the stability of the order of
things. I also posted a pretty good attempt at a grovelling apology soon
after (here reproduced in full):
 
<quote>
  OK, Feeesh, I give in (but it was fun while it lasted)...
 
  1. I've now read your reply;
  2. FUC me 5.3;
  3. I admit to a sneaky regard for CN's who 'have a go';
  (besides, Jackie _did_ try to meet up with me in Fla)
  4. I now repent (hair shirt is on);
  5. FUC Cousteau 5.3;
  6. FUC 5.2;
  7. Still friends?
 
  Safe diving,
  --
  Doug Taylor
  NED VP for Feesh buttering
</quote>
 
Anyway, the bait was good enough to fetch me out of lurking for now ;-)
Nice one, Bob.
 
Safe diving to all,
--
Doug Taylor
3.5 months to Cozumel and counting...
NED VP for arriving at the wrong time
