Thomas asked me for the time and then started talking about sailboats and sailing, so I went along:
Hey son, Iíve been around the world twice! Whatís your name?
What kind of name is that? [Laughs] Do you take lots of photos?
Well I think itís from an 80s baby-name book my mom bought, and yeah I have my camera most the time.
If you were smart, you would take one of me! [Laughs again]
It’s actually film, but I could mail you a copy if you would like.
Oh it’s okay, and yes, I am a sailor. Like I said, I have sailed the world twice and hand built three boats. Let me tell you, there is nothing like taking out a boat you built for the first time.
Not many people do something like that. Thatís pretty crazy.
Yeah, well they say we will all meet our mermaid someday.
