I told her about the conversation we had 20 years ago, and cleared up a few other things, so I hope I brought some additional closure for her at this time when she was saying good bye to her son.
I'm glad it wasn't awful for you, Marty. Hopefully you gave her a little comfort and yourself some closure, too.

The Holland America ship has just left, graceful as a swallow in flight. And stately as a galleon we'll slip out to sea behind her.

Hyperbole? Not me. Ah cain't even spell dat.

Two police boats have cleared the way, warning off small sailboats and yachts. The sky is clearing from the south. It'll be beyootiful.

Couldn't we just have a Beyond Grande Curiosity on such a ship! Met some folks at lunch who'd been on a Bluegrass cruise. Bands all over the place and jammin' all hours. Betcha there were a few moonshine smoothies passed around!

Cheers!

Chocomoose looks like he will settle in once he gets his sea legs!

You're not the first to suggest a little cruise. I am still thinking of a drive from AZ to LA or San Diego for the Mexican Rivera cruise this time next year. Of course that's a bit in the future. Gotta make AZ first. Still - sounds like an adventure Sparky would like.

Marty, you did what you and his Mom needed to do.

Congrats to Chocomoose for passing the lifeboat drill. Didn't even pee on the seat?

Dave and I went to see the BLM area at Imperial Dam while Deb and Nola went "girling" about Yuma. They got pedies. We found an awesome area to boondock.

I cooked up a batch a few weeks back, but it is resting in mason jars. No bites on the rainbow rider and still have my site on reserve in HS and vacation request has been approved, so who knows what April will bring. I'm several pages back in reading, but should be finding time soon to 'ketchup'.

We miss hearing from the "truck and the bus".

If it does sell, my ride on the rainbow will not be over, it has always been a dream.

Bzzzzzzt!

I didn't even have time to watch TV and had the park cable hooked up. Never tried the Dish. As for the water front site - not that it wasn't nice to look at water - but it wasn't all that approachable at our site. Sort of what Barb said 100 pages ago or so.
