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...
Dear friend, this address is o.k. And my new physical address is: Reinhardstraaße 13, 60433 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. We, Angela and I, are still involved into the move… Hard for elder People (I am 80 now…). Happy new year! HeMi
