A Poem

Brother Joey found a poem Mama had copied down.  He handed it to me.

Sea Fever
by John Masefield

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sails shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a gray dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume and the sea gulls crying.

I must go down to the sea again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow rover,
And a quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

Another Margarita!

THIS is the photo I've been waiting on.  I now have everyone's camera card downloaded to my computer.  I'll make a CD for each person.

Wasting Away in Margaritaville :D

Rough seas the first couple of days...
Jimmy Buffets Cozumel Margaritaville - weeellllll.  We did have a coupon for a free margarita!

Just like Edith Ann - and that's the truth!  pffffttttt
 Just waiting on one more camera to download her photos - she has a photo with all 5 of us in the chair. :D

I tried my hand and towel folding!  With the help of a book Nancy bought.  We left this for the room stewards to enjoy.

Mama dealt in antiques for many years.  She always had a love for them.  And, of course, she saved her favorites to go in her house.  Over the years she gave me some items.  I've purchased others from her.

These three pieces were in her guest room. She wanted me to have them.

Baby brother wanted me to go ahead and get them.  We put them in the garage after all was said and done.  After returning from my cruise, yesterday Sam and I got the old stuff moved out and the - ahem - older stuff moved in.

(I wish the carpet was hardwood flooring - some day...)
