Just in case anyone missed me over the last couple of weeks (ha! ha!), I thought I’d let you know what I’ve been up to….

We took a 12-night repositioning cruise from New Orleans to Boston that stopped in Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Curacao, and Bermuda. And no, I didn’t get the swine flu. :-)

It was lots of fun, but I couldn’t find the damned woodworking shop anywhere on that ship!

I was actually surprised I havent seen any posts from you… you should have stopped and said ‘hi’ when in Boston… would have given you some woodworking fix …

Welcome back, Charlie. I can certainly see why you have ceded half the garage to your lovely spouse. Looks like we both have been fortunate beyond our circumstances in the “marrying up” catagory. =D

I guess going from New Orleans to Boston is a pretty significant re-position. Looks like it was worth the while. Good to have you back.

I’d better not let her see this or she’ll get a big head!

We are only six weeks apart in age, but I’ve got a lot more mileage on me. :-)
