A Day in the Life of The Duchess....

Gerry's sister, Geniza, made it to Maine!!!! She flew in on her boss' PRIVATE JET to join us for the holiday weekend! We were so excited! She forgot part of her luggage on the plane so Gerry and I were given an opportunity to see the elegance of which she flew! Geniza was still on "company time" and needed to deliver paperwork to the Yacht that her boss was going to be on for the next several weeks! The crew called her by her nick-name, "Nize" and brought us on board for a tour! Ya whooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the crew members must have noted the "duchess" in me and immediately peeled the cover off the leather fighting chair and told me to have a seat! :-) It was only a matter of time before Gerry and Geniza thought I would be going out to sea and living the high life! :-)

Of course we couldn't leave town without stopping for a cocktail! Geniza introduced me to Mojito's!!!!!!! It's a rum based cocktail made with fresh mint! YUMMMMM!!!! We ended up stopping at a winery/green house (only in Maine) on our way back home and bought three mint plants to make our own mojito's at home! They were not the same and we later determined (many drinks later) that it was the type of rum we were using. Of course neither one of us turned the cocktail down....THAT would be a cardinal sin! :-)

We had such a great time! Nize finally made it back home after spending nearly 10 hours at the airport trying to get back home. She was a trooper...no airline employees died yesterday! Ha, ha, ha!!!! She got in around midnight and reports back to work tomorrow! I told her it might be appropriate for us to wait before mailing her table she bought. I told her it could end like some Seinfeld episode where someone recognizes her name on the package and the table ends up in Fiji being used for fire wood!!!! Ha, ha, ha!

THANKS sweetie for making the trip up and spending time with Gerry and I! We loved catching up and meeting Phil & Sandy!

P.S. Joleeen....I hope this makes your day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
