    Default Greetings from isla

    On another thread I noted we hadnít heard from isla in a while. I PMíed him and heís fine, except for some eye surgery planned for December 7th, pending which he canít see the screen well enough to partake in the Bilge.

    He sends greetings to the crew for a Happy Christmas and New Year. If he hasnít returned by Hogmanay, I propose that we raise a glass to him and any other absent friends.

    I reckon if he hasn't turned up by then we should all pack a bag and just lob on his doorstep. Lets find out what sort of a host he is

    Sincere thanks to Cris for reaching out to check on me, and for starting this thread. Also thanks to all of you who posted here with kind words.
    This is just a quickie with my wife's help.
    I hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year - see you next year.

    Wishing you both all the best.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.
