An interesting political philosophy

And one I have agreed with for most of my life—except for the last few years—Maybe I was right, all those years ago.
Really doesn't matter much what I think...Other than...  let's go to the islands and be happy; not worry. We're luckier than most.

Day after day...

It seems that the ongoing saga of caring for loved ones has been getting us down lately. We really miss our time aboard Istaboa and the characters we meet while traveling.
Just last week our German friend, Thorsten, called to inquire as to our whereabouts. It seems he and Deter are heading for the Dominican Republic and wanted us to buddy boat along on their trip. Would have been a great experience; but...

Made me go back and check out an old slide show from our trip back in 2007. I enjoyed it so much that I have posted it below. Hope you all enjoy. It was a great cruise.

Cut from our old blog
Left Tennessee, took the waterway down to the Gulf of Mexico, crossed the Gulf, went down to the Keys, up to Ft. Lauderdale, across the Gulf Stream to the Bahamas, across Little Bahama Bank to the Abacos, hung out there and had a great time, then turned around and reversed the whole trip. That's it... The whole rambling trip in one rambling sentence.

World water day

It was the 22nd of this month... We missed it.
But click on the link under the pic for some very beautiful, and some very disturbing pics.

Infamous Memphian

There's more to Memphis than just Elvis and BBQ.
Unfortunately for the folks of Volusia County, FL, read this...Prince Mongo

Kinda funny

Click to enlarge.

So—here we are— stuck in Memphis with the Memphis blues again. So to speak.
For all of you who know us, we want to say thanks for all your thoughts and kind words.
For those who don't...  My Mom is quite ill and we are working through helping her arrange her future.
Which for the time being; doesn't look so bad. But as we all know, nobody has a guarantee.
She can be a nice lady... she tells us to go ahead with our cruising plans and that she will be fine. But, we know that would not be the right thing to do.
So, that's where we are right now.
We bet we still get to do an island trip.     Always stay positive.
