This weekend was the tonic I needed. What a great group of people.

I would like to thank the Devine Miss K for all the work she has done and the joy she displays while doing it.

And thanks to Sonny for cancelling his plans for Sunday evening and traveling a long way off his path to deliver me to my deathly ill friend. (That was a very long trip back to DFW)

Since I'm on the thanking train... Thanks to Calvin at Athens Scuba Park. It is not often that you see generosity like that. I know I'm going to remember Chris' birthday for a very long time and I suspect that Chris' memory will be a little longer. Calvin and Sharron were excellent hosts. He's letting me park a vehicle there until I can retrieve it.

Even with the extended route through Houston, I'm very happy I braved the resurrection of Ivan to meet some of the most interesting people. BTW, Ivan was very blue and pleasant. If our tents got wet, it weren't 'cause o' rain.

I'll be on as many outings and events as money and time allows.

Only one thing puzzles me... why didn't the young man turn around? why???

No, Walter, I wasn't; though, I was using a different pair of fins that make towing much more difficult

Looks like you all have a great time. Wish I can be there. Those pics are really funny. Kamala, what were you doing on your knee behind the birthday boy?!

I want to see more pics. Any pic of the camp site, underwater photos, hot tub, shrimps, rum run.....?

No, I didn't take any photos of the hot tub. That just seems verboten somehow. I did have my underwater housing with me, but I did not use it. I had trouble taking reasonable photos in Belize, so I figured I had no chance in the lake. Besides the things they've sunk, there really isn't anything to see. I remember Saturday afternoon being genuinely excited to see a leaf, then I id.'ed it as an Oak. I do have all the photos loaded in snapfish. I'll see if I can email them to you.

About Kamala on her knees, look between his legs - up high.

We actually missed the best shots. A photo or video of our fearless leader getting into her new drysuit for the very first time and giving herself a wedgie would have been nice. We might have been able to sell the video.
