Jan Hodgman replied to PATRICIA LANDON's discussion what took so long? in the group Orange lovers
"One of my best friends "hates" orange. She was admiring a tablecloth, considering buying it, but it had a teeny stripe of orange in it and that was a deal breaker. It's really interesting to me that people can have such strong likes…"

Hello Jan! Thank you so much for the snail mail welcome. The postcard is a beaut - love the ghostly image and bright colors. This isn't my first rodeo here (it's been a few years), but I'm excited to get back to the swing of things. I sent you a little something today!

Thank you for adding me! I look forward to receiving whatever orange you send my way. I visited Anacortes once. Lovely little part of the world. I was there when the lavender wasn't blooming, alas, but I did get to the Hoh rainforest and about died from awe.

Yes indeed, Jan!! Already friends but official is always good, too! Many thanks!  ~Bill@TheOlathePoste

Definitely the stitching was just to fill the hours at sea when there was no wind to drive the boat I doubt he'll be stitching the next time he goes. It was a brief, torrid affair with the needle, which hobby I can finally reclaim, now that I don't have to share my DMC cotton floss and precious embroidery hoops with a bearded old salt of the sea. :)

Hi Jan, Bathtub made it around the world, I got him back in March of 2018...though not for long, he was a good boy for a year, but now he is talking about flying (at least not sailing) to S.America for an 8 month walk, Chile to Ecuador. The only reason we have stayed together for 20 years, I think, is that we are so often not together at all. :) Reunions take on the thrill and excitement of new relationships because I forget, between one moment and the next, what he looks like, so it feels like a different guy each time. Or you could say I feel like I'm cheating on my husband with my husband...
