Thank you, Addie. You are a dear soul. We do worry.

Look at this, Mamma. She understands this! Thank you so very much, Addie. When Papa goes to the sea, we do worry. I did not know of this!

With love,
~Cat

Great news. You'll be in the US for Thanksgiving, Xmas, and New Year. That really is "the holidays".

Indeed! I must go find my bed now, Cat. Sweet dreams to everyone here, thank you all for your kindness, and I shall visit again soon.

Good night, sweet girl. I love you. We will be together next month!

Love,

Oh this is so very exciting! I shall not sleep tonight!

Now I realize I must make good regular food for them in between the holidays feastings.

I hope I can do this! I must make them proud.

With love,
~Cat

Cat one time my husband went out to sea. At about three in the morning I heard the door open. I got up and went out into the hall. It was my husband. I got so angry at him. I thought he had gotten drunk and missed his boat. It was a few minutes before I noticed that he was wrapped in a Coast Guard blanket. He had on only his undershorts and his watch. The fishing vessel he was on had gone down so fast that the crew didn't even have time to lower the lifeboat. Fortunately they managed to get off a Mayday giving their location. My husband was down in the focsle sleeping and just made it up on deck before he had to jump overboard with the rest of the crew. The Coast Guard was there in about eight minutes and fished them out of the Atlantic Ocean. When I realized what had happened, I started to shake all over. Not easy being married to someone who is married to the sea.

Yes I shall! Have you ever been so very happy that you feel your heart is to explode with happiness?

It is what I feel now!

That has to be the best Christmas present of all! It's rather early to wish "happy and blessed Christmas" to you all, but I'm sure we'll have more chances for greetings and salutations. Have a very safe trip here. Look forward to your "dueling posts" when you are side-by-side.

Cat, I am so happy and excited for you I'm with joy! This announcement is like Christmas coming early for you!
