A Good New Year To You All.

Just a very short post as we are in-between jobs. Having done the sea bit it is now into the shower and up to the Inn for the feeding of the 5000 before we all troop off to the Bells. Many people have sadness and disaster in their lives just now with floods and bombs. Locally we are missing a few well kent faces this year but one little scene on the Varuna today will sum up what I hope this year will bring for everyone I know, everyone who has taken time out to read the blog, like on Facebook and send me all the positive comments. Here is Son No3 teaching his little Mexican girlfriend, Marieclau, the Canadian Barn Dance in preparation for tonight at the Hall.


A happy scene that sums up how much we have to be grateful for and a hope that everyone sometime in the year to come will experience some of that happiness.


A Good new Year to you all. And we caught enough, maybe not for 5000.

      Good to hear from you Dave. Wish you a good new year and hope you are coping with your retirement.

  5. And all the best for all of you in the New Year. You’ve achieved so much in the Old one. And if Third Son his busy teaching his New World gal a Canadian Barn Dance off the coast in Scotland, something has to be very right.

      It was good fun having them out. No3 was the one who spent most time on board when he was growing up so was quite handy having him out for the day. It was a happy scene.His piping last night was well appreciated especially by the visiting transvestite.
