Well the obligatory going away parties start this weekend. We are going to a friends 50th birthday party tonight, with a lot of our boater friends. Then tomorrow is the family party here at our house. Next Wednesday night is Deb's work going away party followed up by the Thursday afternoon work going away lunch. Then next Friday is the Guitars, Tiki Bars and a Whole Lotta Rum party at The Cafe on Old Main St in St Albans. You know how boaters are in the winter, any excuse for a party.
