Everyone in fine spirits

Wait a minute......... what's this........... but I thought................... Nooooooo !!!!!

The only good hyacinth is a dead hyacinth (!?!)

After all is said and done and the race is lost or won, for the joy of those in boats and on the banks, it is to God that we give our thanks.
