Mrs. Captain Carol Beliveau is now Mrs. Captain Almost-a-Doctor Carol Beliveau. After two years of mind numbing studying, millions of hours of practicals, and FINALLY mastering the phrase, “take two asprin and call me in the morning” Carol graduated from RN school Saturday in Key West. Now Captain Rich can retire; lucky dog!
FSB COMMITTEE MEETING CONCLUDES
The FSB Advisory Committee reconvened at 08:00 Saturday. Each subcommittee made a report. The bottom line is the Florida Sea Base is alive and well. We will have an exceptional year in 2013. This was a bit of concern because our attendance dropped 18% in 2010 due to the National Jamboree. However, any impacts from the 2013 National Jamboree will be negligible and possibly nonexistent.
The meeting concluded at 10:30. Several committee members and I drove off base for lunch and to survey a potential future FSB project. When I returned to the base there were two Scouts, their mom and grandmother wanting a tour of the base. I spent 15 or 20 minutes showing them around and telling them of the programs offered at the Florida Sea Base, Brinton Center, Bahamas Base and 2014 US Virgin Island Base. I left there and began making my way to Escape. But under the Quarterdeck sat five members of the Sea Base Alumni and Friends Association; President Dan Gill, FSB Liaison Nancy Wells, Foggy Dosser, XXX, and YYY. There were having a serious business meeting which I unintentionally crashed.
I hope to take part of the day off, maybe take a nap. I have chores to do on Escape and in the office. I also need to go shopping. We’ll see how it plays out.
