Ahoy, Semi-Colons -
Greetings (slightly belated) from Belize (look between Mexico and Guatemala).
We pulled in here for a few days - although we spent most of it watching Hurricane Ivan smash into our homeport of Pascagoula, Mississippi. I live over near Biloxi, so I didn't get too much damage (so the neighbors say), but some of our guys got it bad - the ones who live east of Mobile and a couple live in Pensacola, Florida.
We're zooming (as fast as this old ship can "zoom") up to the Mobile area to help out with post-Ivan recovery operations right now.
Sorry I was imcommunicado for a spell there last week - I was bouncing around about 150 miles from Ivan - didn't make for very good typing conditions - Grandma47, you want to talk about a roller-coaster! Try three days in 15-18 foot seas on this little ship! It felt like a loooooong ride on the Bull at Gilleys!
Good weather now. Gotta go.
Best wishes to all.
