Betty White Seal of Approval Worthy!

The International Council of Because Cookie Said So hereby appoints 85-year-old Anthony Smith of London as the permanent, eternal and forever Grand Poobah of Octogenarian Awesomeness for successfully sailing across the Atlantic … on a raft … with three other Q-Tips.
::: Earnest HemingWAYTOGO!!! :::

“Some people say it was mad,” Smith told The Associated Press when he arrived in St. Maarten this week. “But it wasn’t mad. What else do you do when you get on in years?”
::: Yell at kids to get off your lawn? :::

The all-AARP candidate crew said they set sail for several reasons:
1. To raise money for the British nonprofit group WaterAid, which provides potable water to impoverished communities.
::: Doin’ the total agreement nod :::

2. To raise awareness about the environment.
::: Uh huh, yup, I can get behind that action :::

3. To prove the elderly are capable of embarking on adventures that are mistakenly considered dangerous.
::: Uhh, well that’s nifty and all ’till a bunch of misguided grannies go missing crossing the Andes or something BUT WHATEVER – GO DO-GOODER OLD PEEPS!!! :::

And the best part of this super-groovy adventure for the elderly?
The senior sailors have Smith’s broken hip to thank for their 66-days at sea-a-thon!


“I got some compensation money. So what do you blow the compensation money on? You blow it on a raft.”

Now that, my friends, is  winning!

This makes me want to put on my wetsuit, find my sea legs, plop the ol’ kayak in the Intercoastal and set out to look for Davy Jones’ Locker … except, effit, there’s no room for booz, err provisions in the ‘yak…

Ok, so maybe not sail the ocean blue.
But we must mark this momentous occasion. We must pay tribute.


Let’s drink a toast to the team!

Yeah, that’s it!

It really is the best way we can honor the awesomeness of their exploits.

Imbibing for the elderly.

Let’s do that.

    Cookie, don’t forget to stock your raft with a sufficient supply of male models from Miami.

    And forget about the Andes. Not your style.
