  1. Charlotte was beginning to think the division ol labour was unequal and was getting quite verbal until she saw the liquor cabinet maintenance . After being with Glen fo 10 days she realized what a substantial job that would be. Personally I think he should change the engine oil.

  2. OMG that's a ton of work but that is the process and those without boats have missed all this fun. And they think its all cocktails and sunsets. Congrats on another great year.

  3. LOL No way! Pam & I will take care of the liquor cabinet LOL
