Going Sailing

There have been a few years during our marriage that the DH and I have managed to be together on both of our birthdays plus our wedding anniversary. Most of the years, however, we have been apart on one or more, many years all three. That does not count those years where the High Holidays get in the middle. (I am not sure that there is anything quite like having a birthday on Yom Kippur…., certainly not over there in the Christian world)

This year is another of those 1/3 where deployment plus the HH will challenge us.

As a result, we are celebrating them all now by going sailing from Athens to Venice

I don’t think I am going to stress about posting for the next few days but do a summary plus a picture page or so when I get back.

(I have packed sun block, minimal knitting, iPad and camera)

    Have fun! Will be thinking about you on crystal blue waters from steamy hot Texas.

    Heading for Vermont soon, yay! Although I think they’re having a heat wave and no AC.

    Well, Christians do have some similar situations…Friends of mine were married on Christmas Eve, and have a child who’s birthday falls the day ofter Christmas. How does one do honor to all of those things at one time? Enjoy you joint sail!

    Good winds in the sails and no storms.

    I know someone who has his birthday on Christmas Day. As a child he was never permitted to actually have a birthday celebration of any sort. As an adult he insists on having a birthday cake – who can blame him?
    My birthday is on a difficult date – but I do not celebrate my birthday so it does not matter!
