Good to hear it Gary.

Thanks for thinking of me, everyone,

Good for you Gary, you are an inspiration. My Father in law ( and best freind) is your age. We are preparing my boat for a sail to Honduras in april. You should to come down to Key West and have a happy hour on our porch. I'm at sea until The 20th. Let me know if you need any thing while I'm around, we have a lot of tools and boat's and connections and stuff.

Re: I'm still alive...

Gary,

I'm in Fort Lauderdale and headed your way. Should be in Marathon soon and would love to share a "Sundowner". Be well and don't drink all the rum.

Mike

Re: I'm still alive...

Aaron,

Might slide down to Key West after New Year's, then head for the Dry Tortugas for a short stay. Hope to meet up with you and your father in law on the way.

Mike,

I'm on a mooring ball at Q4 of the Marathon City Dock right now - love it! I'll be performing this saturday night at Sombrero Resort's Tiki Bar from 7 to 10 p.m., weather permitting. Had a great crowd there yesterday, kept the place rockin' most of the day, and the ladies were amazed that I performed for three hours without taking a single break. Lots of musicians feel the necessity to take a 20 minute break every 40 minutes - something that can cost you a lot of audience members during the lull.

The bar is still fully stocked, at least for now.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: I'm still alive...

Thanks everyone for the kudos. One of the great things about being down here is the ability to perform some of those tasks that you neglected while residing in the frozen north, mainly painting. Warmer weather makes all that a lot easier to handle.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: I'm still alive...

Happy Birthday Gary,
I'm in Charleston SC. Sounds like you will pass by (or already did). Give me a holler if you are around.

Regards, John

Re: I'm still alive...

John,

I'll probably be in the Charleston, SC area early on the second week of March.Hope to see you then. There is a, however, the possibility that I catch a good weather window and ride the gulf stream north to the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. Hope it happens, but that time of year the weather can be real iffy.

Gary
