Signed Contract

We did it! We signed on the dotted line and now the fun begins. Next week we will have the new boat surveyed and go on a sea trial. Hopefully it will all work out and we will own a new boat in the next few weeks. We are both really excited. 2008 is starting out so much better than 2007 did!

Remember - all my sailing friends - Different Drummer will be for sale soon. We sure do hate to part with her, she's a great boat - so don't forget to spread the word!

"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving - we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor."-- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

That night some shepherds were in the fields outside the village, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them. They were terribly frightened, but the angel reassured them. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I bring you good news of great joy for everyone! (Luke 2:8-10 NLT)

Congratulations. Are you keeping the name? I like DD but Escape is a good name. I like brown color also. Can't wait to see it. Merry Christmas. I miss Harley.

Congratulations on the new boat!! So happy to hear the good health news. Now there's a reason to celebrate. The Texas weather is a bit more inviting than the Nebraska weather. I look forward to getting back. I hosted the Dec. wine dinner at my house last night, great time. The kids will be home Christmas Eve, can't wait. Happy Holidays. See you soon. Sheryl
