You have no idea how tempted I was to use Stifler’s (American Pie – American Wedding) altered cake title as the title of this post, but since only a few of us would find it funny (since it’s rude) I will just have to think it every time I see the post!
Last year Jim took the plunge (no pun intended) and decided to make a career change. Pretty brave if you ask me as it was a huge gamble. And, honestly, who wants to start studying and taking exams again?!? It all paid off and we are all proud to call him a Yachtmaster. For those of you who don’t know what a Yachmaster is, it means he is now able and entitled as a Captain to take people out and sail the seas. He can deliver yachts and captain a boat for the rich and famous woohoo! Of course, he would prefer that we call him Captain. Does it help that Adam refers to you as El Capitan Jim?
Jim is home for the weekend before he heads off into the sunset…Gibraltar, Greece and possibly the Caribbean. Perhaps we should call you Jack after Jack Sparrow?? Far more fitting…Savvy?
Dad has always been a huge boat enthusiast and took us out when we were tiny right up until we were in high school. Jim took to it right from the start as you can see…
After some years of family trips Jim ended up living on Dad’s yacht in London. I think he may have taken the formal part of London a bit far though…a little too dressy perhaps??
But, after plenty of hard work and brushing up against the pro’s in the business he has finally found suitable attire and a happy career…
Wishing you all the luck in the world Jim…be safe and don’t forget us when you’re rich and famous! But, for the time being I will settle for an updated picture of you in Greece…I’m sure you’ll agree this is a little too old
We’re all so happy for you and for your success. It’s truly an amazing adventure and I can’t wait to hear of all your travels…hint hint!
Oh…and before any of you wonder…I got a get-out-of-jail-free-card for this post. I asked permission to use these old pics first! I am sitting here savouring the moment hehehehe…well he did ask that I post more about him!
