c'est tres dure - all good things have to come to an end

All right Caleb, my days are objectively numbered here on "The Rock" even though I just ordered some $200 worth of stone chisels, hopefully coming early next week. I still intend to pound on this granite before I leave. I know it's crazy, but I love "final - haven" - a spared out pocket.
Tomorrow I will get my act together and start planing the catering job I have gotten to serve the party of an American Indian woman and an Aussie guy who recently got married. It will be fun. All the MikMaks will arrive ... pictures to follow:) I still listen to "radio banana" or whatever the heck that Swiss student radio station is called, broadcasting out of Lausanne - while thinking of you and the times we shared on "the rock".


These pictures were taken yesterday in "Old Harbor" of Vinalhaven. The smaller boats load Herring for bait used to catch lobsters. The fisherman finally got mad at me while I was taking pictures floating around and around on my small vessel, they shouted: "you must be from the IRS, go away tax-collector!" I smiled and waved, shouting back NO WAY, I hate that modern form of mobsters!! They smiled back and continued loading.

I came back by sunset and took the last pic from the shoreline ...

glad that you had a good time and good experiences in Vinalhaven. Obviously, you needed and used the time to reflect..well, shouldn't say 'obviously'..I just thought you did,

ciao 'superboy' (lalala, singing the song)

Thank you Ingrid - I always take your words with "GS" - no, not grain of salt - but with GracefullSlobberduber. :))

THANKS!!!

your welcome zee. I feel somewhat connected in a weird european sorta way even though we grew up in totally different cultures (gasp! taking a deep breath, man that was a mouth full)
It is really too bad I couldn't have visited before you left your little rock haven in the ocean..
someday someday...perhaps even with Gary and Lindsay and who else do we have in common??

I will not leave premaritally, and I haven't even left yet, nor can I give you a date of closure. There are odds and ends to attend to...
Anyhow, your plan sounds good. We can meet here anytime!
Cheers, L.
