|Me and Wayne De'Cajun practicing our "ARRRGHS" on the Kalmar Nyckel (one of the requirements before we set sail)|
That was me and Wayne De'Cajun the past ten days. Oh man, little did we know that shortly after we took out little jaunt on the Kalmar Nyckel on that beautiful, sunny August 20th. Just a week later both of us were admitted to Beebe Hospital. Wayne was dangerously anemic and I was going down with a .6mm kidney stone. Yep, this is the way both of probably looked upon entering the emergency room of Beebe Hospital. "ARRRRGH!"

Today I'm happy to say we're both in the recovery mode (thank God!) Wayne has all new blood flowing through his supple limbs (you're welcome Wayne). My .6mm kidney stone was blasted to smithereens last Wednesday by laser during a very invasive emergency operation (think about it, I won't explain the details).
|Me, Mary Hudson (one half of the first married same sex couple in Delaware) and Wayne|
We're both slowly regaining our strength. Wayne's already been back to work. I return this Thursday night, then Friday then Saturday night. That regimen should put be right back in the saddle from which I fell two weeks ago. It will be good to get back to work, I miss it (did I just say what I think I just said)?
|Wayne and Pat headed towards the Kalmar Nyckel|
I have many nice pictures that I took during our trip around the Delaware Bay braying "ARRRGH!" at fellow crew members and passerby's. I'm just sorting through them now. I didn't have a chance during my horrific kidney stone episode. Somehow that drama took all of my attention (tell me about it).

|Wayne with his wench on the Kalmar. I always suspected Wayne was STRAIGHT! And here he had us fooled all these years just because he wanted to work in Rehoboth. Wayne, straight people can work in Rehoboth too. Just saying.|
Here's a taste of the ride folks. Enjoy!
