I don't give a spit about grammar, but readability is another thing.

You are the one asking everybody to step up with rescues, all I ask is you hit ENTER once in a while.

I'd be very impressed to see a swimmer drinking beer. I'd gladly rescue them in hopes that more beers may be available for the sharing.

As for the swimming and smoking pot, I presume this involves a "water pipe?" Seems like it would be difficult to keep the pot smoking while swimming?

So, what the hell happened that got your undies all in a bunch? Maybe with more information everyone would be a bit more compassionate...

well you see i was sititng smoking my waterpipe on frog rock and all the sudden i forgot where i was, jumped into the river and pulled a turkey leg out of my chutter. somewhere in the middle of the confusion my whistle wasn't working when i blew on it so i tied the whistle on to the end of the throw bag and with the might of a lobster i chucked it into the trees where the pigmy apes recesued me, thank goodness that none of you potsmoking hippified river rats where around to see my birthday suit. ahh well still got my water pipe didn't let that go. but somebody needs to give up some turkey legs im still missing mine. damnit grif. you stole my turkey legs and didn't even toss me a beer when i was drowning. shame on you im calling the porkers on you.

my girlfriend swimfan swimgirl i forgot her name told me that she still hates going to the swim pool withyou after you wouldn't help her get to the side last time. real nuts, grif, real nuts, man. can't even help pull her out of the water and dry her off with a towel. same goes for me. why wasn't anybody standing their with my towel. who doesn't help bring a towel for me of all people? serious? where's my fucking towel.

This is freakin hilarious!!!! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time!! Thank you Mr. Beaver for the grammar police. And I'm glad I now fully understand what a "water pipe" is good for.

Don't worry though I'll rescue you if you need. We could all use the good karma.

Last rant from the rock

As the lines goes "Don't ask me how I know I don't want to talk about it."
So you have a throwbag,but can you hit a swimmer with it?
Hows is your first aid kit and your skills at first aid?
If somebody says Z-drag are you looking for a Nissan sports car?
Speaking of the shuttle where are the keys if the driver can't tell you or isn't around?
Extra gear?I know its hard to fit in that new playboat"surfin shower slipper III" but a warm coat can make a big difference.
Extra oar,paddle,break down paddle for kayakers?Hand rolls and paddling are great if in your bag of tricks but in big water gets old fast.
Yes I know some of you are a rock,never swim,or miss a line but if you really want to impress the Bettys,rescue em,don't be throwing loops as they swim past you cause they fell off that f....ng tourist boa t.
Leave the politics for the sandbar,and help anybody out on the river that looks like they need it no matter what you might think of them on shore.
Think!What if?Not "What now?"Know and have plan "b" in case "a" is a bust.
And last fly with a wingman no man can be a island agianst any river I know.
A dead boater is the worst trip you"ll ever take,the last trip if its you.
