I get a kick from the greeting card section in many Tennessee stores. It's among a handful of places I've been have the cards that say "Happy Birthday, Uncle Daddy!"

The enduring question in Tennessee-----If a husband and wife divorce in Tennessee are they still cousins?

And the condensation on the inside of the car windows in the local lover's lane is called "relative humidity".


Oh, and the family tree resembles a wreath.

Difficult to find the actual date of this thang with all the BS going on - is it Feb 22nd to 24th?

Toying with the idea of coming down the Friday before, leaving the yacht and going on down to the Miami show in a hire car, then back for this shindig afterwards. Then after that heading on down to West Palm to cross for the spring Bahamas trip - somewhere.

Just in the planning stages right now! (we even had the rather odd idea of taking the boat on down to Miami during the show then back up to FP. Still an idea.)

Menzies. Those dates will work, Ted and I are planning on arriving the 20 and leaving the morning of the 24/25. Watfa will cook for the group the 23 Saturday, we usually visit the barbecue joint close by..

Yes we will have the rum flowing, even Baker and Wendy couldn’t finish it the last two years but they made a sizable dent, other options for adult beverages will be available.

I had no interest in leaving on Sunday the 24th and playing in the weekend AICW demolition derby. Think Monday is a far safer day to leave.

I agree, I’m leaving monday the 25 and hopefully can run outside in calm water but I think most others are leaving Sunday.

I have crossed the Atlantic, and signed on to crew on a boat in the Med. Hope to be back by February, but if not Larry will know what to do.

Wow, sounds like fun Don. I sure hope you have been instructing your apprentice well over the last few years and he is keeping track of the attendees.

Have fun, I always wanted to cruise the Greek islands.

Decided to just fly down to Miami on the Saturday morning and do the show Saturday afternoon and Sunday and then a Central America Cruise afterwards.

You guys enjoy!
