BigJohn, I couldn't have said it better myself! What a lovely letter to share with all of your cyber friends! I too feel very much a part of a bigger family here on CruiseMates. You have no idea the horrible withdrawl I went through a few weeks back when I returned from my cruise and my computer was fried, and I couldn't share my excitement with my CM friends! Now that I am finally writing my story, and receiving wonderful comments from everyone, especially John, it brings me much pleasure to bring YOU pleasure!
And Alexa, Bonjour! don't be shy, post more often, je parle francais et je peut traduire pour vous!
