Same here Mike. I hope you and Paula are doing well.

I'm pretty sure many of us will miss John's brisket, and the camaraderie. Good Times!

RTB,

This is what I miss about Florida. Well, this and the Bahamas. The marina was a unique situation that grew into a family. We were lucky enough to be central for CF members to contribute, and meet eachother.

What's even crazier is some bonehead from Texas drove some 3000 miles for my brisket.........i2f

John and Mel,

We are pleased to hear you are on the mend. We wondered what had happened. Thanks for the update. I guess it was too much mac and cheese. This is one of the few times I have been on the computer due to my eyesight. And you thought it was my foot. Yes, it started with new glasses. The foot goes out once in a while, then Dot remarks "You think you are going sailing?" Well, the jib is almost completed. We will see.
So get well and get sailing. If Mel needs anything just email.
By the way RTB was to keep me updated on your condition by email. I can read the email easier.

Dot and John

Ok, but I'm a smart bonehead. I had to butter him up so he'd ask me to go sailing the Caribbean with him! Plus it really WAS good brisket.

I2F put on 3 (?) Balls. Each time the food and attendees were enjoyable. The briskets were fantastic. And yes, Ralph was there enjoying the festivities at the last event. Reynolds Yacht Center was a nice place. Sailndive also made the event on one of his weekends visiting his sv in St. Augustine. Ralph posted a nice picture of the event.

I am happy to hear that you are on the mend and soon will be back on board. The trade winds are calling.

i2f, now you're sort of "forced" to enjoy the rest of your life, and to keep a positive attitude. not a bad thing at all! maybe you would have really gotten yourself a "JOB" and missed out on all the fun... now you can focus on the fun, seriously. don't get me wrong, i don't want to discuss my health issues but who knows how much time for fun we will have?

wish you all the best, fair winds and all!

I am really struggling to understand your post, so let me type this. No offense is taken with what you typed. I just don't understand. One of my points was that I have lived my life as I pleased. With this new chapter in my life I wanted to encourage others to live theirs too.There are some struggling with the decision of when, or if to go sailing. I was giving food for thought. I am only using myself as an example to encourage thinking. The thread is about them, and not me.

If I was not on the mend, and my body riddled with cancer. I would be back in Panama, and getting ready to sail to Hawaii. My life has been so very much fun. If I had worked all my life, retired, and then got deathly ill I would've felt cheated. I don't feel cheated one tiny bit. In my eyes I have lead a very blessed life.

There are dozens of people here who have met me. One sailed 1,500 miles with me in adverse conditions the whole way. Another 450miles in near perfect conditions. I think most would vouch for me that I am pretty upbeat about everything.

Whatever your condition is. I am hoping the best for you & yours, and you can place it behind you. I know my wife is struggling much harder with this than I am........i2f
