Thanks Ronnie! As you can see, I've picked up the VI moves pretty good, huh?

I must say that it is nice to read about how much you and your kids love VI culture. It is very refreshing to see that appreciation smiling.

I love, love, love the VI culture and people, I could never just watch a parade pass me by, I've got to jump up with the party. Carnival is my most favorite time of year, with j'ouvert being my favorite day. I love to see people who are normally ultra-reserved, letting it all hang out (figuratively and literally!!!)
