TD 4 Weather Advisory - Caribbean Islands

And its name is DAMIEN !!!
(actually not - its Dean)

Fidel and I are now on a bit of a weather watch. Its seems that this Saturday could prove to be a bit of "fun"; I'm being a bit sarcastic don't ya all know. But it could prove to be an interesting adventure depending on how it all works out. We're getting a few checks in place so that we can be assured of each other's safety should the weather prove to be bad.

Oh yeah.. I'm flying in to Sint Maarten Saturday afternoon- ETA 1:30 pm their time.

Note to self - Remember to charge cell & PDA, and bring quarters for the phone.

Right now, the tropical depression track has moved more northernly than 6 odd hours ago and is now predicted to be heading right for my beloved little islands of the SSS. One prediction is suggesting that that it could be a category 2 hurricane - enough to dampen spirits, or worse. If it makes a "2" status, it could really disrupt travel between Sint Maarten and Saba for a few days or more.

He (Fidel - not Damien/Dean) and I are so"lucky" this way. Of all our travels to be with each other, only one trip has gone off without a hitch. That was my trip last December to Sint Maarten. But in that one, we ended up getting shafted with rental car charges - a small ding that they wanted big bucks for.

Now to go and round up my foul weather gear to pack in my carry-on, and maybe my tiny hand held VHF.

Yet, whenever we get together, we always love it - and the difficulties just go away....

Just keep this out of your mind!

Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy......

Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don't worry, be happy
The land lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don't worry, be happy
Lood at me I am happy
Don't worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy
Don't worry, be happy
Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
Ain't got not girl to make you smile
But don't worry be happy
Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don't worry, be happy (now).....

There is this little song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don't worry, be happy
Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
But when you worry
You make it double
Don't worry, be happy......
Don't worry don't do it, be happy
Put a smile on your face
Don't bring everybody down like this
Don't worry, it will soon past
Whatever it is
Don't worry, be happy
