So it's come down to this kind of name calling then?
If I must be called something, you could do much worse than pansy. They are particularly hardy little plants that survive freezing and cold temperatures quite weill, but have little tolerance for extreme heat and muggy conditions. That's why you see so many in the mountains.
Comes from the French pensee (thought) and while I have no great love for the French ( partly due to a much anticipated romantic liaison with a young French lady, that was ruined disastrously by lack of personal hygiene - such a cliche but I shit you not, I couldn't past the smell), they do have a flair for language.
So, yes I will cop to being a pansy. But I don't think they make drysuits big enough for my fat ass and the NF Payette is usually the temp of my bath water when I get out. Which makes it particularly amenable to those pansy front rangers who need to boat the gnar of Idaho.
not angry - one of my kids said this post needed cats
