A J-Lander Visits

It has been a while since my last post.  This was unintentional and to my friends and family that are Emailing me to see if I am okay, yes, I am doing just fine. 

I get extremely busy every spring trying to get the marina in shape for the coming boating season.  I am pretty tired in the evening during this period and fall behind on my posting.  So, the situation is normal here and all is well.

Some of you know that I have been looking forward to meeting my first J-Lander.  Jeannette (Jlocorriere05) has been visiting the U.S. from England and her journey brought her here to Savannah, where we had a fun day together yesterday along with her mate Andy.  I'll be doing a post later today to show our visit in pictures, but I thought I'd post a short video we took yesterday just saying "Hi!" to J-Land.

I alway find it interesting to put a voice along with a face to those I encounter through my journaling.  In that regard, we made this video to show you.  Still pictures of our adventures will follow in the next post.

Just an note:  I have edited this now to try and make the video brighter.  I got the video brighter, but the audio was unrecognizable so I put it back to the original.

It is lovely that you got to meet up but sadly the video is so dark I can't make out either of you, looking forward to the pictures instead.

Hey!  So good to hear your voices!  Well, the video is a bit dark but I was able to see you both.  Happy Traveling Jeannette (and Andy!)

I could see you very well here. I loved listening to both of you talk. I was hoping you would post an entry about her and Andy's visit. I loved to hear her and the other Jeannette from England talk. Bet she likes to hear us Southern folks talk also. Probably wants to poke us in the side and say hurry up and get those words out LOL. Looking forward to seeing some pictures. Helen

I tried to go to Jeanette's journal--but it is private! glad she was able to visit and the pix were great. We enjoyed meeting several from Weather Chat in Houston a few years ago and they have a reunion at Myrtle Beach every October!

When I posted this, I forgot that Jeannette had taken her journal private.  If I remember correctly, it was beause of a concern that some of her readers while she was public may have been coworkers.  Her Screen Name is jlocorrierre05 and you may Email her asking to be added to her list of readers if any of you care to.

Looks like a lot of fun--for those of us with MSN the audio is still unintelliglible--skips a lot.
