    Hi Jim,

    Thanks so much for including me in your travel plans. When reading each excerpt, I feel like I’m actually taking the trip with you! As soon as I receive your blog, I forward it to Marilyn because she is also extremely interested in your adventures/misadventures. She says it’s like reading a good book. I think we will learn a lot.

    You will be missed around the club this summer but we will have your blog entries to keep us company. Enjoy yourselves and “don’t sweat the small stuff”. Even your most stressful problems will become great stories once you arrive back home.

    We’re praying for sunny skies, calm seas, and fair winds along with fun-filled days with great companions!

    Berj
