The flibbertigibbet at sea

My niece The Chicken, aka The Flibbertigibbet, is on the Trinidad & Tobago Women's Youth Sailing Team. Here she is with her teammates in a publicity shot before their recent regatta in St. Maarten. She's the one on the extreme right.

You go, Chicken!

What a beautiful girl. I'll be rooting for her up here in the cold northern wastelands.

Hope you have a great writing year next year, too. =oD

Wow, how happy do they look? I sooo wish I'd done stuff like that when I was young.

Go Chicken Go!

They look like they're having so much fun! Happy New Year, Wordtryst - may 2008 bring you writing success.

Looks like a delightful crew. Being absolutely useless in a sail boat, I admire their skill.
Wish them luck for me.

And you have a wonderful new year yourself.

Great picture. How I envy the short sleeves.

Happy 2008!

I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to offer your condolences and giving me the encouragement that I needed at this time. I hope you have a Happy New Year! :-)

Have a Happy New Year, everyone!

My niece is going to be so tickled when she sees these comments!

Dave, you're welcome. Your post was meaningful to me, too.
