Thanks for the replies- awshucks folks, tweren't nuthin.
Trucker - Based on my little experience, I am really in awe and full of appreciation for really brave people like you and your coast guard brothers who do this on a regular basis. Salute!
Stephanus - LOL - you sound like my dad. A very decent fellow, but also a real society man who turned out to be a real kill joy after getting married and having kids. He is gone now, and I loved a lot of things about him, but he could make the Sadduccees look like the cast of SNL!
Joy, Mulan, ugg, LB - thanks for the kind words.
LB - LOL - perhaps you were grabbing the lady in places that were too sensitive?
Mak - leaving for home today, and getting teary eyed.
