Cool OMG!!! 100 Days!!!

Farewell! On 9/9/09, at 9:00 AM, coffee and doughnuts at my office; at 9:00 PM that day, pizza and beer at our marina clubhouse. Then, unless there's a hurricane, we're off! A month cruising the Chesapeake and getting the kinks out of our systems, then back to Annapolis for boat show (of course) then ... head south, winter in the Bahamas. After that, who knows? The cruising kitty is really fat & happy so I doubt we'll have to work for money again.

9/9/09 is exactly 100 days from today. For so long, it's been "can't get here soon enough." Suddenly its become "Yikes! How can it be so soon? I've got so much to do!"

Thanx to all of you for the help, support, and insight over the years. I hope to pop in here from time to time when our internet connections allow. I've gotten so much from this site, finally will have more chance to pay it back. We'll be blogging somewhere, I'll let you know.
