Merry Christmas to all of my boating friends,

I am not sending out Christmas cards this year. It is too difficult and too expensive to send them from Mexico.

So, I posted my Christmas card on my blog. You may see it at "" Click on the “Penn’s Blog” tab.

This is really different for me. It is my first venture into poetry. I hope you all enjoy it.

I will tell you right now that it is called “Cruiser’s Christmas” and is a takeoff on the Night Before Christmas. I decided that I shouldn’t use Saint Nicholas in my poem, I didn’t want to damage Santa’s reputation any more than I already had in Christmas Inc. So I looked up the patron saint of sailors, and guess what?

St. Nicholas IS the patron saint of sailors. I guess it was just meant to be.


Feliz Navidad y Prosper Año Nuevo.
