Finally, if you've ever wondered how Segways are made, wonder no more.

We also visited Malibu Rum. Malibu and Cockspurn Rum are distilled here (but bottled in Windsor, Ontario). In addition to the distillery tour, you can also hang out on Malibu Beach.

Since that isn't much of a view of the island, here are a few pictures from the cruise. The picture with Jack Daniels is at the duty free store in San Juan.

There is not a lot to do in St. Thomas. In fact, one of the women we saw was visiting her sister and her kids had to wait until the cruise ships arrived because she said everything closes when the ships aren't in port.
We rode the SkyRide to the top of the hill where we could see the entire port area. They have a bar and a couple of shops up there so we had a beer and headed back down.

It would be impossible to do justice to nearly 86 years in this short space so, for now, I will just let everyone know that he was the best grandpa anyone could have had.
His 86th Birthday would have been in a couple of weeks, on June 31st. Here is the video from his last birthday. When we called on our way, we asked him where he wanted to eat. We had been assuming Olive Garden as it was his favorite restaurant. However, he surprised us with Bob Evans. This caused a bit of a panic as they don't have any embarassing songs or entertainment. Thankfully, when we got to the house, he told us that he changed his mind and wanted Olive Garden instead. Unfortunately, in order to keep the element of surprise, I couldn't start recording until they were at the table. Missing from the beginning is, "I'm gonna get you for this."
The obituary and funeral arrangements can be found at Schneider Funeral Home.

Derek got Angie a "paper cut" from Paper Cuts by Joe. This is a hand cut black piece of paper mounted on white matte. Here is what it looks like.
