Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

"Tis Magic"

I found out today that another friend has passed away.
It just doesn't seem to end...

Tom of "Tis Magic".
A good guy.
Always with a smile.
Always with laughter that followed the smile.
Always with a positive attitude.
Full of fun.
Full of life...We always seemed to anchor right in front of him.
He was on a smaller boat.
Probably wondered why this big fat cat was always right off his bow.
It was a conversation starter.
I think it was meant to be.
It was the start of a nice friendship.
One he cultivated more than we did.
Thanks for the fun Tom...
The laughter.
The effort.
The friendship.
Thanks Tom.

Thanks Jomamma. I think this is the way our lives are going to be now. We know so many people and we are getting older! I couldn't even count how many people we have been friends with who have passed away in the last 15 years, but yes four so far this year, with three being relatives? Ick. Nothing ever as bad as my sister and dad less than 10 weeks apart though. It does get easier...
Thanks for all the comments, the kind words, the friendship ♥ !
