Jasper sounds JUST like your Grandpa Devine!!! Did you absorb his philosophy as you sat on his lap???

"A boat is not a ship; they are not the same thing at all, at all."

Can Jasper swim? Your Grandpa said real sailors never learn to swim, cuz if you sink at sea you'll just prolong the agony!

Well, I'm afraid I'm gonna hafta say that most if not all Rians do learn to swim; but remember, this is an entire seabound nation, not a navy. If a kid falls overboard you damned well better believe they're gonna come about and rescue her. Half the crew would be in the water with her 'til the ship got turned 'round and come back for 'em. I reckon they prolly swim with dolphins and whales for fun. Could Grampa swim?

I don't seem to remember absorbing philosophy from the old man, but you never know; I coulda did. After all, I prolly wouldn't remember it if I didn't do it on porpoise. Maybe I picked it up during the Grampaspankins. And anyway, he was right: a boat and a ship are NOT the same thing, everybody knows that!

Don't they?

Oh and btw, glad your 'puter let you post this time! Good to see ya!
