ReverendMike will become famous soon enough
Courtney
We shall certainly toast you in spirit. (preferably early in the evening, you may not want your name associated with any of the later events.... )

Keep working at getting better, hospitals are indeed for sick people! Avoid them as much as possible, one's own couch is (IMO) the best 'recovery room' there is.

Cheers from MO,
Mike

[edit: "The weather started getting rough/ the tiny car was tossed/ if not for the 'AFOC-y-ness' of the fearless crew/ the Reverend would be lost". Here's wishing Bestfriend's flight and our drive go through without too many problems]

RAGTIMEDON is on a distinguished road
I could have used the free tickets but bought mine on the 'net weeks ago so I would not have to stand in line. The Admiral and I will try to be at the 'goat at 5 tomorrow. Identify us by the cavas bag with RAGTIME embroidered on it. Hate those little plastic things they give you at the show. Embroidery is a part time job -- we have a commercial embroidery machine in our basement and would be glad to take orders for shirts or tote bags with your name, boat name, and/or a sailboat embroidered on it.
Craig (CKDK08) -- you are in the wrong place to see your dream boat. We saw Island Packet 465CC at the St Petersburg Strictly Sail. She has 7'3" headroom, but I don't think she will fit thru the doors at the pier! While in Chicago, buy Illinois lottery tickets -- as I recall, the IP465 as equipped for that show went for 695 large! I'm only 6'5, but she still made me drool!

I just went back a page and read Bubb's note----Sorry to hear Courtney will not be with us--Hope she has a laptop in her room so she can sail with us in spirit. She can beat it -- My Admiral did, 30 years ago! I've been to Strictly sail ten times since I bought Kismet in 93, and will probably go another 20 times b4 I cash in. Probably even after I sell Ragtime and stay ashore! Yes, I am one of those who go to seminars -- I found out years ago that the lines to see the new boats are longer on Saturday, so we do the boats on Friday and seminars on Sat!
