What, is there another Ken?

Do we have to refer to him by his qualifying sobriquet?  Reminds me of the old joke (grade school) “How do you spell Mississippi with one ‘i’?”  Answer:  (While holding a hand over one eye) M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I… Did Ken make his way from Itasca to the Gulf, thereby earning the nick name?  Is he a former pro wrestler so that there is no need for an explanation?

And thank you Mark for all this information- you are a regular floating wiki…  Of course I underestimate the depth of Mark’s knowledge on any given topic and his ability to reason while being catapulted through the seas by heavy horses…

Nice whale.  But do Humpback Whales ply the gulf waters?  It would seem that they do, depending on the season…  Summer feeding in polar waters and coming south to breed…

Watching the Trail Brain work can be painful…

He’s really working it, Ladies and Gentlemen.  But really, what does Bill Ellis’ opinion matter at this juncture?  He never leaves the city unless it’s in comfort and only then to get kidnapped by rogue islanders…  And besides, if a “chemical spill” happened, it wold be impacting all life, not just sharks…

I am glad that Mark has not forsaken his wardrobe of khaki shirt and denim pant in favor of a Tommy Bahama floral print shirt and board shorts…  Of course we haven’t seen his bottom half, but one has to assume…  and it looks like he has applied extra Brylcreem to his coiffure in order that no hair be out of place…

Shur hope the Shur Ketch3 has facilities on board…

Sounds like Ken and Kelly have been on a shark stake-out, waiting for Mark Trail to get permission from Bill and Cherry, and then for Mark to board a plane and motor out to the “middle of the Gulf of Mexico…”  I guess we now know why Mark needed a boat.  Ken wasn’t coming back to port and he shur couldn’t swim out to the site…

Thanks for all the thought bubbles… if Mark were to talk aloud to himself under these circumstances, he would have to yell…  which would certainly be awkward to witness…

Difference between men and boys…

…is the size and price of their toys…

Or is it Mark Trail meets Miami Vice??

Northwest Florida Beaches international Airport?  Serving Panama City / Panhandle Florida…  and Laguna Beach where Cigarette boats are apparently stacked up like cord-wood and ready for hire…  compensating for something, Mark??  He leaves Cherry in a puddle of tears, yet has no problem letting out a “Woo-hoo!”  How do you really feel, Mark?

And what about the carbon footprint (not to mention cost) of a boat that burns probably 20-40 gallons of fuel every hour at cruising speed?  Oh, all right, let him have his fun…  Won’t Mississippi Ken and Foxy Locks Kelly be surprised when Mark pulls up in this baby?!?

Aaaand…. Cut.

Cherry, that’s right, and there always will be, otherwise there’s nothing to write about…

It’s not like he’s going off of Afghanistan or something.  He’s going to the freakin’ Gulf of Mexico, for crying out loud…  if anything I would be worried about Mark coming face to face with a bevy of bikini-clad double-breasted bed thrashers…

Speaking of which, check out today’s installment on Billfish, Sailfish in particular.  Where would one buy a tiger-print bikini these days??

Drama Much?

Holy Crap!  Enough already!  Remember, Cherry that Mark doesn’t age (or you for that matter…) no harm will come to him and that he will always return because his public (small as it might be…) demands it…

“Other people… people who are not good and virtuous like us…  have it out for you, Mark.  Even if they don’t know you right now, they will get to know you and want to do you harm…”  Good-byes were never this long or arduous in the past…  more like Jon Lovitz in A league of Their Own…  he made no bones about how he handled his life on the road as a professional baseball scout

Oh, c’mon! Let him get back up on that horse!

Mark, you really are Bill’s Bitch aren’t you?  Can’t make a move without his approval.  But really it’s more like you can’t make a move without his bankrolling you…

Boats? Really?  What Cherry really doesn’t feel good about are all the apex predators that roam Lost Forest 100 feet outside the front door…  Mama Griz is probably done digesting Rusty and is back for more!
