SNOW,

Is a 4 lettered word!

I would like to be in the Philippines sailing over 7,100 islands that very much resemble the Exumas. Only the people are a lot smaller, more brown, and every thing is extremely cheap! I would base myself out of Saml during typhoon season, and gunkhole the rest of the year......i2f

I wish I were...

On a broad reach from the Bitter End to Anagada. That's where I was almost a year ago to the day. Family, friends, Christmas lights hanging from the mast, it was a great vacation. This year I'm looking out at the snow falling. Monday the days start getting longer. Spring is right around the corner (or so I wish).

Sitting in the hammock outside Foxy's with a pain killer.

I'll be replacing the head and sanitation hoses on Caribbean Run this weekend. Got a bottom job and an unexpected exhaust system from the mixing elbow back in the past two weeks. (it's 78 now - will be 40 on Sunday)

Christmas Island!!

Let's get away from sleigh bells, let's get away from snow
Let's make a break some Christmas, Dear, I know the place to go
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ya like to spend the holiday away across the sea?
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ya like to hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree?

How'd ya like to stay up late, like the islanders do?
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe.
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray for everyday
Your Christmas dreams come true.

If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island

Your Christmas dreams come true
On Christmas Island your dreams come true.

I prefer Leon Redbone's version!!

Or, failing that, I'd like to be where my avatar is - at the helm of a boat on a pleasant day.
