This recent missive from John Colby s/v Iris, who made a presentation at his yacht club up north. Wish I'd been there.

Hi, Jackie
My dog and pony show went real well last Friday evening. I used your apology of not having sex scenes in your book as one story. I brought out the pee bottle with a little bit of beer in it and said I was going to test out what lost people in the desert do. I donít think most thought it was urine but the room was sure quiet when I drank some and proclaimed it tasted like beer. One guy said he is seriously considering doing it in 2020. Cheers, John
