Captains Message - April 2015
The end has come for this Captain! What a great year I have had. I would like to thank the Board and committee chairs for their support this year. I could not have done it without you. The Krewe membership, thank you for all your participation in Gemini XXVI.
To my Royalty , I could not have asked for a better group. I have enjoyed getting to know you. Thank you for taking this journey with me and making Gemini XXVI a success. At this point just as all captains in the past, I am sad and a little relieved. I hope to see you all for my last Cocktails with this Captain at Chimi V's. And as I end I must say
And now the end is near and so I face the final curtain. My friends I'll say it clear, I'll state my case of which I'm certain.
I've lived a year that's full, I traveled each and every Gemini way, and more, much more than this I did it Gemini way.
Regrets, I've had a few but then again too few to mention. I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption.
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway, and more, much more than this, I did it Gemini way.
Yes, there were times I'm sure you knew, when I bit off more than I could chew, but through it all when there was doubt, Gemini you helped me out and we stood tall and did it our way.
I've loved, I've laughed and cried, I've had my fill and now as tears subside, I find it all so amusing. To think I did all that and may I say not in a shy way, I did it Gemini way.
For what is a captain what has she got, if not herself then she has not. To say the things she truly feel and not the words of one who kneels. The record shows she took the blows and did it Gemini way.
My final salute to Gemini, I THANK YOU!
