Well the folks at Merrior let in at least two of us since the gathering so guess all is well there, Pedro and Becky were brave and returned. Their hospitality at the after party was wonderful, with the exception of giving Susan a tour of your Ranger Tug. You know what happens getting Susan around boats. You guys are great!
Kevin's video provided us all a reminder that much fun was had and yes Lesa you were driving five and a half hours for lunch! It appears after you stopping at DVYC that there may be even more expense some day as a fall out from this, though Scotland by sea....could be a plan. Hear that Lesa, you could still get that trip because of a boat someday! They sure are beautiful aren't they?
Bob may have escaped being deported for now by Linda, but I am meeting the owner of the Flicka at a sock burning party he invited me to in a couple weeks and I am sure that his plans for the Flicka will be discussed. Might wanna get those emigration plans ready Bob! You could join Kevin and Lesa, after they get their PSC31, along with your friend Flicka, and sail to Scotland for that stout, the Jersey Armada.
Tim and Vicki will clearly need to install defensive measures on their wonderful lighthouse and dock structure at SML as more than a couple of us have contemplated a siege by sea! Even though i was kidding Tim about bringing rum from their trip, they did and it was greatly appreciated! We are not all that far from each other and should find some excuses to get together.
So Heave, it would not have been a CBMWG without ya and it was way cool I had a chance to sit next to and talk with Jackie. Let all here know this: "I like sailing and boats" This was a direct quote, maybe influenced by some ETOH, but I heard it! You guys will have to come back down sometime when you can spend a couple days and let's get her aboard some boats! Oh since you mentioned her, I have been out on Black Swan and raised her pirate emblem. Know you would approve of that! Meanwhile Tangier Island still is right were we left it i presume.
Wayne and Phylis didn't look too shocked after meeting us and it is clearly a character flaw they have when they mentioned doing this again! Was so great to meet you both and Wayne let's do get together this season and take our girls out, maybe we will even bring Phylis and Susan.
and to Dave who could not make it.....a glass was tipped, and an invitation stands. Our girls were hatched oh so close together, we need to introduce them to each other.
Finally a nod to the best wife a man could ever hope for, Susan has steadfastly supported my dreams and made them hers as well. After 37 years we have helped each other realize many of each others dreams, oh and we still ponder the "till death do us part" clause! Keeps me on my toes.
Thanks again all for the camaraderie. Well I guess it will soon be sailing season, and there are already suggestions tenured about CBMSG 2.0.........just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water!
