Well I just got back from Montreal; a business trip, my first time there, and what a delightful place! I even discovered that I can read French tolerably well, remembering a little of what I learned in high school and muddling through the rest with Spanish cognates and common Latin roots. Must go back sometime when I don't have to work. Anyway, tomorrow I head to Boston and then up to the Wooden Boat School for a week of sailing on L. F. Herreshoff's Quiet Tune. Y'all will just have to get along without me.

Oh, it's a tough life. :D

I'll have to watch for you, Keith! Ontario tomorrow night, Montreal Sunday, Down East by Monday night. No kids, no dog after all, so we're taking the turbo. Ahhhhhh!!

Have fun, Keith. We'll miss you at the Lake!

Didn't you hear?? QUIET TUNE was rammed, dismasted, cut in two, burned in an explosion and sunk in 100 fathoms. All at her mooring (so no life was lost, thank goodness). Apparently the Bayliner Boater's Club of America went on a rampage on Eggemoggin Reach. A couple of the windjammers had to hold them off with saluting cannons and singed some Pacific Blue biminis. All that's left of the WBS fleet is a mildewed plastic kayak they dragged up into the woods long ago.

Enjoy your week;>.

But I'll let you borrow The Ensign's Gig when Jami's done with it.
