Red Sun in Morning

Be prepared for white squalls. When the question is do you or don’t you, will you or won’t you, it’s time to trim the sails, pour a whiskey and batten down the hatches.

This weekend  are asking for exactly 33 words including an idiom somewhere within.
Also, 31/3/13 today.

  5. Good advice for life, as well as for sailing. Squalls can be particularly dangerous for the unprepared, and they can just spring up out of nowhere, sometimes. Well done!

      Here's to being in a boat with a drink on the rocks rather than being in the drink with a boat on the rocks.
