    My wife and I just received a Christmas card from her Aunt and Uncle. We took them sailing last year, it was the first time either had sailed, even though they have travelled extensively and have even ridden a hot air balloon. Did I mention they are almost 90?!! It was a perfect day and they enjoyed it so much we took them again this year. Another perfect day on the water, including a few brown pops after.
    Well yesterday we got the Christmas card with this hand written message....

    I know I cannot direct the winds, and I keep trying to adjust my sails,
    but they just keep flapping and laughing.

    I think this may be my new motto.

    Merry Christmas to all

    Thanks for the post, Dave.
    Merry Christmas.
    I hope you have many more occasions to take your aunt and uncle sailing.

    For myself, I am interested in getting Dragonfly in the water to take my 82 year old father sailing, because he IS a sailor who retired from the sea a few years ago. I know he misses it even though he says he doesn't.
