Merry Christmas!! What did you get?

Merry Christmas everybody! Whose husbands and wives were good to them this year? What did you get?

I got a binder to keep track of all our boat related stuff (we're leaving in June of 2009 with our kids for 18 months), a stormglass and a hammock from the wife. What's funny is I got the wife a hammock too! And I also got her a blender (didn't go 12v - just regular AC to be powered through our inverter). The hammock was from Blue Performance and is VERY nice, if anyone is looking for one.

This year, I recieved my gifts throughout the year. The year began by meeting a lady sailor that made me want to try again. And though it didn't work out as hoped. Just inspiring me to make the effort was a gift that time has shown to be one of the best I recieved. Then came retirement and finding Aria, as Mastercard says....priceless! Coming to Texas, for Aria, I found some great new friends that have been a gift all year long. Even my aborted trip to Florida, turned up a silver lining, as I met some great folks along the way, and learned lessons that should stand me in good stead as I continue on my journeys. And then there are the helpful folks that come to Sailnet, who have given me advice and encourgement during this new chapter of my life. All in all, a great year, full of gifts.

True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

1. A 1947 boxed edition of "Two years before the mast"
2. "The Venetians" from the Seafarers colection of Time-Life Books.( I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the writing of this series of books. This is the 10 th book from this series for my bookshelf and I have read the other 9 from cover to cover, some twice)
3. a new Evergreen Pacific log book
4. The "History of Ships" by by Bernard Ireland
5. A new West marine rain suit with new 16" boots
the other stuf is not sailing related so I won't bother mentioning it.
Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday to all!

PB dude, you have lead a blessed life and I am happy for you. I see you found out that it is not the meeting the goal but the journey that can be most important. Merry CHRISTmas again.

I was pleased with the new foul Weather gear from the wife. Thought I knew all her hiding places.

A trip to Cancun in February, where I will take my first day-long sailing trip! We'll see if the bug infects me with a more permanent sailing virus. I'm betting it will!
