back from not-so-holidays

This has little to do with sailing but I've gotta go for it anyway.

These were my holidays:

Christmas morning - wake up with fever of 104 degrees
day after christmas - same
day after that - same
day after that - head home to boston
that same night -house burns down lose pretty much everything
next day -getting over fever stay with friends
next day -look for apartments
next day -find apartment
new years -diagnosed with pneumonia
etc.etc
jan7 -still lying in bed with pneumonia. Dog is now sick and dying.

I am not kidding

The one redeeming thing about this whole experience is that I got a copy of Chapman's for Christmas and it made it through the fire. I have had plenty of time to read it.

Paraphrasing Mother Teresa:
You know that God will not give you any adversity you cannot handle; but you could wish he didnít trust you quite so much.

I hope you will soon see the moon, through your burned roof.

Well, that pretty much sucks, but that made me appreciate things better. I hope everything works out for you.

Whenn ever things seem to go down hill for me, I try and remind myself that there is always someone out there worse off than me. But I had always wondered who maybe at the end of the line ;-)

Mate, having had pnuemonia, I know how you feel and wish you the best and speedy recovery. I hope it truns out well for the dog. At least houses can be replaced.
All the best
