WHAT I KNOW ABOUT JOHN LISON, BY HIS WICKED SISTER-IN-LAW
A very fine looking man with a strong, slender, build, good hair, and a stunningly arresting smile. Great crinkles around the eyes from a lot of laughter in life, and nice teeth from good dental hygiene. Actually, he's a bit compulsive and proud about those teeth. He NEVER misses flossing and brushes religiously after each meal.
He's a man who has always walked to the beat of his own drum. As a youth he became drawn to the sea, and realized, fully, that dream in later life. John is tenacious, he finishes what he begins. He's creative and imaginative, thoughtful and capable of creating ingenious ways of using what is at hand to solve a problem.
He is careful about money in order to live out that dream of being a sailor. He has three boats, and spends time each year, when feasible, living on each one. He is docked in Fort Myers, Florida, Culebra, Puerto Rico, and Madison, Wisconsin. He also has a mean red Mustang Convertible...complete with flames on the fenders, which gives him the ability to travel in the U.S. and do some tent camping, just so he can recall the feel of earth beneath him for a change.
Entertainment....is a good wind to sail by, either on the boat or wind surfing. Fishing is a great joy, either from the boat, or diving with a spear gun to catch dinner for the evening. He's a wonderful cook, and makes glorious bread. He is an expert at using a solar oven. Give him a good movie on tv, a big glass of wine, and something chocolate for dessert....he's a pretty happy man.
His preference though would be an exceptional woman who would share this lifestyle, who could appreciate the beauty of living a simpler life, anchoring in coves so breathtakingly beautiful it overwhelms the senses, who wants to Watch the sun dip into the Sea at dusk creating riots of color in the sky, and making one rub their eyes to be certain it's all real. Someone who laughs at the Dolphins scooting along side of the boat, and is happy to breathe in the salty, fresh air each morning.
She will be at home on the sea or in a tent, she'll love riding in Big Red with the top down, exploring trails or islands depending on where they go. She'll find fresh picked flowers in a glass when she wakes. She will be a buddy, a lover, a treasured partner in the adventures ahead. As a person who conquered cancer, John appreciates life and he wakes up with that joy in his heart. He lives each day to the fullest and finds great pleasure in the gift that life is.
So if you don't smoke, enjoy a few glasses of wine, have a good sense of humor, eat healthy food...with an emphasis on a bit of something chocolate now and then, maintain a healthy weight, have a true sense of adventure, think high maintenance should be reserved for engines, not people, like good conversation, have a true and loving heart, and love the sea.....climb aboard.

Alberto E. Delucca Super, we had the honor to taste this exclusive Bread.
.WHEN A BEE LANDS ON YOUR BOAT, WHAT TO DO?
THEY ARE USUALLY VERY LETHARGIC, IF THEY MOVE AT ALL.
GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR GALLEY AND REACH FOR THE JAR OF HONEY.
TAKE A TOOTH PICK AND GET A BIG DROP OF HONEY OUT OF THE JAR.
PLACE VERY CLOSE TO THE BEE , BUT NOT TOUCHING AS IT IS HARD FOR THEM TO GET STICKY HONEY OFF THEIR WINGS.
NOW GET YOU MAGNIFYING GLASS OUT OR LOOK THRU ONE EYE PIECE OF YOUR BINOCULARS............THRU THE OPPOSITE END YOU NORMAL VIEW THRU AND AT FIRST EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN BUT WHEN YOU GET INSIDE AN INCH FROM THE BEE. THE BEE WILL ME MAGNIFIED MANY TIMES.AND YOU WILL SEE THE BEE START SUCKING UP THE HONEY THRU ITS STRAW LIKE EXTENSION FROM IT`S HEAD, SOON THE BEE WILL GET ENERGIZED AND GET ALL PEPPY
AND FLAPPING IT`S LITTLE WINGS, THEN SUDDENLY FLYS AWAY, WITH A FULL TUMMY.
DON`T WORRY IF YOU HAVE TO MOVE THE BEE WHEN THEY ARE VERY WEAK THEY HAVE NEVER STUNG ME AND WHEN THEY GET ALL PEPPY ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS FLY HOM
