Thanks Steve!! I'd almost forgotten about Robert Service. My Mom turned me on to his poetry when I was 10 or 12 years old (which would be over 42 years ago!)

For those uninitiated, check out:

Capes are optional,but a bow tie and jacket is required.

From what I've been told, you can substitute 200 feet of flightline for the shoreline, and a gallon of prop-wash for the dehydrated water. Mrs. Smoke's got the red L-H shifter under lock-and-key, so it's doubtful I'll ever make "Gold."
