Jim Trefethen contacted us many months ago asking if he could include our story in his next book. We corresponded several times, sent him a few pictures and then completely forgot about it.
Friday we received an unexpected package, kind of a big deal in our little town, and to our delight found inside a copy of "Sailing into Retirement". Chuck and I then spent the evening taking turns reading to each other and we had a thoroughly good time including several laugh out loud moments.
Jim's book is thorough, entertaining and honest and for us to be included is an honor. If you are getting ready to retire and dream of sailing off into the sunset we suggest "Sailing into Retirement." It is a must read.
Yes, it has been a while between posts. It was Summer after all. Time to start sitting down and writing again. Chuck has expanded on one of his previous blog posts " The Aging Sailor" and we should have a new page up in the next few days.
I have had a busy summer at Waterways Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Hill has had an extremely busy schedule and we are just now getting the the veterinary vessel Hallie geared up for her first trip out. By the looks of it there will be only one this season.
Mid September and the weather is changing quickly. There was a definite nip to the air this morning. I'm looking at all the varnishing to yet be done and letting out a loud, resigned sigh.
