Deal is, I take the last 10 commenters (is that even a word?) on my blog and tell a little bit about each of them and/or their blogs.
Then I answer a question about each of their blogs.
I'm going to follow in Dave's wake and do it in two parts, lemming that I am.
Part 1 being the little bit and part 2 answering the question.
So my last 10 comments have been from Jomamma, Dave, Jomamma, Jomamma, Jomamma...
Oh wait that's not going to work...
#1 ~ Jomamma ~ Someone I have never met, but it seems we have a lot in common (except the kids part... I have none of those) and would be friends if (when) we do meet! She lives in Texas, works at a school, has a husband who has been going thru chemo and now radiation, has raised two kids (Jolea ~ see below) and has a lovely, FUN family who all get along and care about each other. Her goal is to find humor in everything. I think she does. P.S. She is a awesome knitter!
#2 ~ Alaskan Dave Down Under ~ Aaaahhh Dave. Funny, funny guy who used to live in Alaska and made the smart move to Australia. He takes excellent photos of birds and wildlife. He cooks awesome meals (also has a food blog) and apparently has a very tolerant wife. Puns galore. I think he spends a lot of money on bird food and a lot of time floating in his pool.
#3 ~ 1st Mate ~ Owns not one, but two sailboats! One that is being restored. Lives in San Carlos, Mexico with the MxSailor guy (see below). She sings, volunteers, is interested in her Mexican neighborhood and the Mexican culture. And I think she makes really good cookies and hopefully she will send some our way when MxSailor sails down the Sea...
#4 ~ Ray & Lucy ~ Two of our best pals for the last 14 or 15 years. They used to live on a boat 3' away from our boat waaay back in 1994 (when their dog thought our boat was his other boat). We cruised Mexico with them the last time down. Fun, fun people who now reside in Texas... they are awesome cooks, can sew excellent boat canvas and are just wonderful and loving all around. P.S. Ask them about the time they found a ransom note for their dog...
#5 ~ Carol on "Capricorn Cat" ~ Oh yes, my little blogging protege! Yep, I turned her on to the blogging thing. Wayne & Carol bought "Capricorn Cat" from our friends, Blair and Joanie. "Cap Cat" was our whole inspiration in buying our catamaran, so of course when we saw them pull in here, just had to meet them. Since I had posted a photo of their boat being moved by the marina crew (when Carol and Wayne were gone) I had to show this to her and the blogging took ahold... Blogging lessons followed!
#6 ~ Jolea ~ Daughter of Jomamma! And young enough to be my daughter... been working on mega yachts, catamarans, boats in the Caribbean and in Australia and is now pounding the docks in Fort
#7 ~ Roz Savage ~ Ok, I am still trying to figure out how this well-known world ocean rower left a comment on my blog. Absolutely amazing! She has rowed single handed across the Atlantic and from California to Hawaii. She is doing this to educate the rest of us about the sad situation our oceans are in. Trash, plastic, debris and more. This is one incredible lady!
#8 ~ Markitos ~ Funny sailor surfer guy in San Diego. I think he is living at anchor on his boat. His brother had a boat here in La Paz and sounds like Markitos has sailed the Sea of Cortez. I don't know much else...
#9 ~ Overboard ~ Another funny one! Found her blog quite awhile ago by doing a search on sailing or sailboats. She bought a ferro cement boat in San Carlos ~ turns out bought it from Butch (passed away) and Linda, some friends from way back! She is teaching English in Japan and will be returning to her boat in a few months. She has been an inspiration to me in her travels and desire to live and explore the world, and to not do the 9 to 5 grind (sound familiar?) forever.
#10 ~ MxSailor ~ 1st Mate's Captain. The other half of the "owns not one, but two sailboats"! And is heading South in the Sea (oh I hope he brings us cookies!) about now. He paints lovely pictures, plays a few musical instruments and is doing a full restoration on one of the sailboats.
So now to all of my family... gee, not one of you are included in this?
Aaaggghhh ~ are you all still out there?
And Suzie and Kirby, sorry but you were #11 and you know how I always follow the rules...
Oh okay... I will cheat this one time!
#11 ~ Suzie and Kirby ~ Kirby was our neighbor back in Ventura in the old days too. We were so happy when he met the lovely Suzie. Ah, finally a nice lady for our friend! Sailing, cruising, food and a wedding later. Then they cruised the East Coast without us and now live in South Carolina. She started the "Best Friends for a Day" saying! There, I typed it really, really small so no one will know I cheated.
