Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the Skipper brave and sure,
two passengers set sail that day,
for a two hour tour,
a two hour tour.
The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
the Minnow would be lost.
The Minnow would be lost.
The ship aground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
the Skipper too.
A millionaire and his wife,
a movie star,
the professor and Mary Ann,
here on Gilligan's Isle.
The real lowdown on the trip to Racine...
*Left Verona 4:00. Arrived Racine at 7:30
*Amy J was greeted by THE SQUALL early on and went home.
*Went five miles in one hour.
*Snow squall that lasted less than ten minutes created ice covered, treacherous roads.
*We were turned away from our intended path by a sheriff, downed power lines, and a bridge that was out.
*Missed 90% of Steph's song leading.
*Mrs. Jill Briscoe was reading Psalm 139 when we arrived.
*It took me 20 minutes to be able to listen.
*Jill's voice and message soothed my heart.
*Steph's voice is truly gorgeous and strong and perfect.
*Met Jeanne from A Hen's Place; long time blog sistah and delightful woman.
*Met Steph. Hugged frequently and long.
*Drank punch. Ate a cup of nuts and a teeny piece of carrot cake. Went back for a second teeny piece and more punch.
*Took a few pictures.
*Oh how I love the way Jill is looking at you, Steph!
*We are now friends IRL.
(That's text/blog code for 'in real life')
*When Steph told Jill we were her blog/Internet friends, she said, 'such modern women'.
*Nancy and I were nearly last to leave.
*Drove home on dry roads, escorted by the most lovely half moon, lying on it's side.
*Arrived home just before midnight.
*Thanked God to be home.
*Visited with dear hubby for half and hour and then watched DWTS.
*Went to bed and read Psalm 139.
* Jill's talk made more sense.
Even in the darkest pit.
God is there. He is near.
Encourage one another,
Donna aka the Skipper
