We are still downsizing. I can not believe how much we had to had is now in the trash. Well at least our children would have put it there.

We have so much stuff that my Admiral (the owner of the stuff) has abandoned any plans to deal with it. Since getting rid of the stuff was an integral part of our cruising plan, the new cruising plan must no longer include it. It appears that our stuff will now outlast us.

Remember, accidents can happen. Even if you are healthy, it is possible to break a major bone or get a concussion. Think getting whacked by the boom. Also, get a THROUGH dental check and have any needed work done. DItto for medical checkup. Good luck, and enjoy!! It's a great life!

Broken bones happen. I broke an arm and it has not been fun!

I wonder too if Lauren might give us an update on her status. I know that EVERYTHING takes longer when water is involved. I was supposed to be far south of here, and instead I'm dock bound waiting for my arm to heal. And too I know all boat projects take (minimum) three times as long and and loads more cash than anticipated.

That's life. So how are you Lauren?!? I'm hoping you're making progress on your dreams.
