What a great forum community this is....

I recently went to visit Lyndon ( Vazies Avanti) aka Foxsea Ladies, in his hometown. I got my beautiful banack bow pulpit too. Great people him and Cheryl, well, Cheryl anyway..LOL:kidding
Its funny how the internet and a board like this makes you feel like you know someone already, thought we had spoken on the phone on a few occasions. We were treated like family and had a nice Bar B Q and the kids had fun, Thanks Lyndon and Cheryl !!:cool:

Today , I got to meet Mike "Perfect Balance" aka Whiskey Wizard, but now "Numb Nuts". Gosh, I hope he keeps that name ! You know how much fun it is to hail, " Numb Nuts, Numb Nuts, this is the Family Jewells", how appropriate !
I met them in Lake St. Clair, stepped aboard for a tour had a beer and escorted them to fuel in Michigan. What a beautiful ship they have !! They have had some tough weather, but Lake St. Clair was a pussycat today, which it usually is. The couple they had on board with them were very nice also. Mike says "Hi", to all here. They are 2 to 3 days from home now.

Sometimes actually meeting ppl , after the internet thing, makes things really fun ! Its kinda like a first date !! LOL

Dave,

Mike and Louise, its a shame you guys weren't going to be around that weekend, maybe another time.

I know there has been hookups at the marinas in the past, especially in the West Coast area....just thought it was very cool.

Just got back from a few days holidays at the boat, which is why I haven't replied to this post yet.

We did meet with Jim and Lorraine last Saturday and had a great afternoon. The original plans were to have them come up to Orillia and spend the day on Foxsea Ladies, but as luck would have it, I got called into work for the evening.

We had a barbeque, had some laughs talked about boats and future hook ups. It is nice to put a name to a face, makes things more personal!

I got your message at home Jim, I'll call you once I get unpacked and settled.

Jim I sure would love to see a picture of the stern of your boat next to Mike's. When I told Doug about you meeting Mike and the two names, him and Mona had a good laugh.

You are right Ken, it would be a good pic, maybe we can Photoshop one ? :arr

On the other hand, hailing was fun ! "Numb Nuts, this is the Family Jewells, over"

Of course we both repeated this back and forth to each other as we were coming into the river from the lake. I am sure some other guys on 72 were howling too !! :kidding
