GREAT news Ray. We're so glad to hear that you and Helen are cruising, and enjoying the company of your Grandson. (It's so much fun to be with someone on their first cruise isn't it?) Keep us informed, and have a Pina Colada for us too.

You're a good Grandpa for giving your grandson such a nice graduation present.

Take care,

Sorry I have not replied often. We have been having medical problems so I have laid off for a spell.

I came down with a alergic reaction and had tgo seethe doc gave me a shot in the behind and an IV to insert some more stuff. I am Fine now and running.

We have a very good time on tour in St Martin. Did Margot with a boat cruise. Wonderful. Got a few pictures.

We came by St Thomas. Sid nothing there jusst visited the mall on shore and back to ship.

We are now at Grand Turk. We will go shore soon and wonder around. Been here before so will maybe go to Buffits and get a margarita.

Tomorrow is packing day. See you all on Sunday and home.

Ray,

We're glad the doc got you fixed up and you were able to continue to enjoy your cruise.

I'd wager Helen is truly enjoying herself.

Can't wait for the pictures when you get back!

Todd
