Kingston, NY 6/13/13

Well, it’s a beautiful night….We’re looking for something dumb to do….Hey, baby, think I want to marry you.  Bruno Mars

Today is the 13th of June.  The day before my anniversary.  I asked Tom this morning if he would marry me again, if he had it to do all over again.  He said, “Think of the boat I could have now, if I hadn’t gotten married”. Well, that was not the answer I was looking for, but he did say later that he would marry me again in a minute. Ok.  I’ll take it.  We have been married 26 years tomorrow.  All my old friends will be shocked and amazed, as no one thought it would last.  I remember Sharon Scarborough (Murhpy) giving me a one year leave of absence from work cause she thought I would be back.  Fooled everyone, didn’t I.  Tom is the most wonderful man in the world.  If I hadn’t married him, I wouldn’t have Amy and Cait and I wouldn’t have our sweet Willow.  I am blessed. 

We are stuck in Kingston, NY.  Tom keeps calling it Kinston.  Wonder if he is homesick?  The locks up the Erie Canal are closed due to all the rain.  We have about 6 or 7 boats here with us, doing the Loop.  We have called the locks to see when they are going to open and they told us to stay here.  They are so packed up there.  They won’t let anymore boats come up.  We are having fun with our other Loopers.
