a rapid by any other name...

… would simply not be the same.

the rapids at the wiz’s cottage are aptly named “white’s falls”…. aptly because of the shimmery, irridescent foaming torrent of death that you face when you make the monumentoud decision to “do the rapids”…

;-)

actually - it was quite safe :-P and that’s all i am going to say about that. 

and if it wasn’t for a chickadee strapped to my back like the wings of the flying monkeys of oz, i would have made it down the rapids without twisting my back in 11 places.  and i wouldn’t be sitting on the couch here now, grinding  robaxaxet platinum into my tea.
