need a get together
Most of my friends are in the same industry I am and WE ARE DEPRESSED! I need a get together with some upbeat postivie people. So, my invisipeeps, how about a get together on STT soon? Anyplace on the east end is good for me. The sooner th better 🙂
Let me know.
I'd be up for it but I'm leaving island tomorrow for I don't know how long. I'll have my laptop with me so PM me if you want to yak. I hope things improve for you soon. How's the hunt for a new owner for the pup doing? Those dog parties at How 'Bout your Pet are fun & they serve wine.
I'm up for it - and flexible with time - just let me know where and when.
Let's think about. My schedule is unfortunately flexible. Yours too? Debra wants to join in as well but she seems to have varied hours so maybe we can work around hers? I'll let you know soon ... anyone else?
What depressed industry? Molly's on Sunday is fun. low price on drinks and munchies at happy hour and decent music and the Crab-man Crab races after if things work out. always leave with a smile and in bed before 10.
Term crewed yachts - season ended about two months early and next year is bad. Molly's sounds good for a Sunday afternoon. The week after July 4?
Sounds like a plan!! I was amazed at all the yachts taken out all ready by transport. I saw a full ship leave in June. I hope the VI tourist board is also including your industry in their Specials. I hope people remember to save a little for fun and take a break from the cold dark north in the winter. If they don't it will be ugly up there
The boats that leave on the transport ships - [SeaTran etc.] were always gone for the summer -- we don't have the large mega yacht, motor yacht, type traffic here in the off season and really never have, they have never stayed here for the summer --they are off to the Med,Newport,Maine,New York,Chesapeake etc. - the sailboats that get transported North however used to provide many local sailors delivery jobs and good ocean sea time for aspiring licensees - that part of the industry is mostly gone - the bigger and more costly sailboats get shipped now and avoid wear and tear but have deprived many younger sailors of a chance for ocean experience.
When you get an opportunity to deliver a sailing yacht North these days it is not very likely to be a Swan, Hinckley,Perini-Navi,Oyster or any of the well found vessels - it is often an owner who can't afford to ship it and often is not in an ocean ready condition .
i'm ready to meet new people, for a girl's nite/day out.
what did we did on.
we should have a networking party for the friends here on this site.
Sounds like you said to meet at Molly Malone's Sunday after the fourth so that would be July 12? Around 1? That sounds like a plan and sounds good to me.
I won't be there, since I'm a Crucian now8-), but if you go earlier in the day for brunch, you can take advantage of the bottomless bloody marys and mimosa. They end at 2:00. Just a thought. Have fun!
I think this is a great idea. Time to meet some "new" buddies and enjoy all the reasons why we are here. Has been a tough year but it too shall pass.
I absolutely love summer here (minus hurricanes) and think this would be such a kick to do at Molly's. I'm in.......
Great idea, should be fun!
Count us in for Mollys on the 12th. Now that our container is unloaded, boxes unpacked and the house mostly organized we are ready to meet some people!
Mike and Cheryl
Sorry, hubby has been sick again so i've been off line. The 12th sounds great! We had a little get together on the beach a few years ago and that was fun too! a little more trouble but ...
Will try to make it!
Molly's it is. like the bottomless drink idea!!! I can afford that but can Molly's?
Are we still on for 1 pm today @Mollys and where should we find everyone?
See you then
Cheryl and Mike
I'll be there - small place so we should find each other.
Just arrived home from Mollys. Couldn't find anyone. Did anyone go?
We were there but didn't see anyone either so we sat at the bar and had app's. Left around 230
mike and cheryl
I was there too at 1pm, had lunch by myself and left.
I couldn't tell who was who.
So none of wandered around the joint and asked other patrons if they were there for the vinow get together?
This exemplifies the plight of internet dating -- no one looks like their screen name! - the kids solve the same problem with texting and IM - it is a high tech world.
Nope - never asked - guess we all looked at each other wondering if we were from the message board. We will have to plan another and plan better on how to recognize the group.
