I apologize for the delay in blog editions. I am lazy about contributing because Joey does most of the writing. It was something he enjoyed doing when there was something to write about. And that was the problem. On August 5 I decided to return to the Great Lakes, specifically Chicago, IL. We loaded the boat on a truck and shipped it to Crowleys in Chicago. The list is long why I decided to return but the ultimate reason was I was not having any fun. It became to much like work. The weather, tides, shallow water, low bridges, poor marinas, communications, etc., etc., all contributed to my decision.Joey would have continued but honored my decision.
The three months spent together with my son were wonderful. I can’t say enough about Joey. We had some great experiences together. I could not have done this without him. I love this young man and am a very proud father. I will never forget our time together.
I may continue the blog. I’m searching for a theme. But, I’m not sure my life or thoughts are interesting enough for anyone to read. Stay tuned. If you remain subscribed, I may surprise you someday.
Joey immediately started searching for a job. He had three offers within a week. One would have involved him moving to San Francisco working for Port Supply, the commercial division of West Marine. He chose to return to the company he had been working for. They welcomed him back ,promoted him, and added some additional perquisites.
Thanks to all who followed us.
