Bob! Three and a half hours - driving home - in a blizzard - and you built that yacht too.
You're the one who deserves a bloody medal.
Firstly - I hope you - and anyone else - does 'hijack the thread' - or at least keeps posting
comments and messages. It's a real pleasure to hear from you all - and to go and check where you're from and what you tell me of yourself. And it makes ME stop and think - when I consider that across the world - you're struggling in a line of cars in miserable conditions - and pondering us here in Botany Bay Australia
It's an amazing old world we live in today - that allows us all - to share each others experiences - in this way - from one side of the planet to the other - to actually see - each other - and step into whatever small part of a person's life they will share.
There's no need to 'sail to Australia' to meet - although I'm sure you wish you could - as you sit in that car going home. I'm sure as time goes on we will all make great friends - and who knows MAYBE, just maybe - with a bit of luck - one day we may just all sail into the same bay - and drop anchor
alongside each other.
As you can see straight off - Penny and I are pretty happy - open folk - in fact Penny loves everyone - and everyone loves her (How do you get that deal going?). And we enjoy sharing the humble happenings and adventures. We had to do something else than cutting the yacht - all the time - or we WOULD have gone insane.
Did you know for example that we had a Rat on board - which became a bigger than Star Wars - saga.
Until we finally got rid of it - and to this day - Penny claims the worldwide credit for it:
How Urban Myths Begin
So please Bob - post here - or to me - anytime you want - I'd love to hear and see - just how Winter in New England
- with a Cruising Sailor - works out.
Here's one to ponder from many years ago
