Oh boy—Melanoma . Whew!

Well, folks, I have been diagnosed with Melanoma. For those of you who don’t know about this disease, it’s a malignant skin cancer with a bad attitude, to put it mildly. 

My dermatologist recommended that I go to the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa Florida, which Marie and I did today.

I’m sorry , folks, but I’m just too tired and upset to continue this tonight.  Maybe tomorrow I can be more informative.


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
