In a departure from my usual photo entry, I wanted to update you on the boat fire of the other night. The boat was owned by a marine and his pregnant wife who were moving from Ft. Lauderdale to Camp Lejuene by boat to his new assignment. Everything that they owned was on the boat. Sadly, so was their German shepard, Buddy. They were not on the boat at the time but Buddy was, so they lost him and all of their worldly possessions. We will donate two two-night midweek Fairbanks House gift certificates to be auctioned to raise some money to help. The certificates will be issued to the two highest bidders via e-mail. (Your bid will be for one two-night certificate.) We will give the entire high bid amount to them. To bid, email me at email@example.com your bid amount, name, address and phone number. We'll keep the bidding open for a week and I'll post the highest amount each day until the bidding is closed. We'll start the bids at $100 for each of the two certificates. Please be genrerous; we'll treat you well.
