FYI: This person is hands down THE most marvelous, enlightening, captivating, enchanting, fascinating
person you will ever come across, and you will understand this if you are blessed enough to meet her.

for the record...a skipper is an UNlicenced head of ship , Lindseygirl Austin is more then qualifed and deserves to be called a CAPTAIN on any boat she sails...and i agree with anonymous about being blessed if you know her!!!

Pretty clear that the "Captain" has some fans.

Thank god I found this blog site it is way more informative than the other one lol. I have no idea what a skipper is, but Im assuming you're doing more than just hanging out in the crows nest* Love you guys and cant wait to see you when you get home!

Missed your call this am, was up all night with Stryder who is teething big time, five coming in at once! So excited you guys are off and running! Now that I found you I'll probably post you a blog every day. I dont know if it's bad luck to say good luck to sailers so I'll just say "Godspeed". That's right, I said it. Godspeed.

First of all, shoot me if I ever say Godspeed and mean it for real. That means I've really lost it. I like your last posting, it makes it seem so surreal being out there. For a minute i really thought you were going to say that the something strange in the water was going to be a big twig, but then I realized there were no Chexans on your boat.
Stryder waved for the first time today when giving a goodbye. We've been working on it and today was a definate wave at the right time. Gosh I love that little boy! It's nighttime here and I know it's even later wherever you are. Hopefully things are going peacefully and speedily (is that a word?)
Other than that, nothing too exciting to report here except I think Im moving back to the westside. Yep, you heard right. I guess even with Strdyer Im still a gypsy at heart. Whatever. Miss you guys and cant wait to see you.

Hey dont know what happened but guess my last two postings didn't post. Anyhowww, soooo excited you are in first as of your last blog!!! You guys rock! Haven't checked my post office box but am very excited. By the way did I tell you that Stryder wore his camel slippers almost every day in Canada? We looove them. Other than that, some things going on and will fill you in when you get here. If my phone is shut off just email me (Had to buy Stryder man clothes, he's outgrown pretty much everything). Love you guys and cant wait to see you. i go to Cali the 30th so I hope you're home well before then!
