Went to Boston this weekend. I went to see my buddy and his 5 year old son ( I had thought he was 7 but he is only 5 ) He is in the cancer ward at Boston Children's Hospital. He was having a hard time and a fever developed. Paul, his son can teach us all about courage which is by definition grace under pressure

This is him only last year, in Austria.


A true night in shining armor.


This is the same vibrant boy this weekend :(




Please all my dear WoodenBoat forum friends please send as many prayers you can for this special little boy with a big big Sir Lancelot heart and help him slay the dragon of Leukemia .

We could flood him with cards... A hospital can be a very, very lonely and scarey place, we should flood him with cards. All we need is an address.

And Joe, next time.
