it’s a small world….

…but PLEASE.. don’t hum the tune. Did that ride with the girls many years ago and once was definitely enough for that song! No, the title refers to the fact that at a neighborhood get together at our house last night it turned out that sitting at our table we had both (and here I quote) ‘the only guy on the planet” who had worked on (as a shipbuilding engineer, not a deckhand!) both the USCG Polar Sea and the CCCG Louis S. St. Laurent – the first two North American surface vessels to reach the North Pole on 22 August 1994 AND a guy who had served as a Submariner in the US’s nuclear submarine program, the first such vessel being the USS Nautilus which had traversed the arctic completely underwater way back in 1958. Now that may be completely random but it is also VERY cool (yeah, no pun intended)!

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
