S/V Tiger Lilly

Rig heavy, reef early, and pray often; for God does not assure us an easy passage, but He does promise a safe anchorage...

Tom & Lilly
Why is this woman smiling - WE HAVE BEEN HACKED!!
One of the unavoidable hazards of cruising, while at the same time staying in contact with friends and family back in the States, is exposing one's computer to all sorts of unsavory Wi-Fi networks in the name of social contact. (Tom sez: Hey, if we really wanted to talk to those people we should have stayed back in suburbia, and then we too could spend endless hours staring at a cell phone screen like the rest of them...)
If you were the recipient of a recent email from us regarding a Raspberry Gel Massage Lotion Network Marketing scheme we really do apologize. It seems that some character in Turkey (of all places) got the password to our Yahoo account and spammed many of the folks in our Contact List. We especially apologize about the Network Marketing Part. Tom thinks that there should be a bounty placed on all of these characters - $100 USD for a set of Network Marketers ears presented at the nearest police station seems fair, thank you very much... We do hope there are no lasting effects to your computer machines due to our inattention to duty.
Another really kool thing happened this week (NOT); it seems that a 4 inch long squid jumped through the open stern port and into Lilly's bunk, and it was there for a day (and beginning to liquefy) before the little fellow ripened up enough for her to detect it. (No double-entendres, Tom-Tom The Sailor Man Viagra stories, or Mr. Happy jokes offered or intended.) We were fortunate that we were at TTSA (Trinidad and Tobago Sailing Association) and had a fresh water hose available to scrub up the fragrant cushion cover and restore good order and discipline to the good ship Tiger Lilly.
Speaking of which, please overlook the flagrant violation of seamanship being practiced by Little Miss Boot Camp in the above picture. She has been duly counseled and assigned Extra Instruction regarding the proper use and stowage of line aboard ship's boats.
Lilly sez: Whatever... You and your little Navy thingy can just put those ropes where the sun doesn't shine.
Like I said, we are still in pursuit of good order and discipline aboard Tiger Lilly.

Tiger Lilly's Photos - Main
Approximately 100 Asian elephants live in and around the Trincomalee Landfill in northeast Sri Lanka. These huge creatures eat plastic strewn trash and garbage because they have been driven back from their natural habitat by the encroachment of farms.
