Lucky me!

Dick and I attended a pro photo talk with none other than the famous Radu this morning, and he gave me this signed panorama photo!!! And we have been to Monte Carlo, so that makes it even more special.

Our kids will be proud to know that we were the corn hole champions yesterday. Who says sea days are boring? Not us.

Happy birthday to Empress Bee today! Miss you; send special hugs to you and Charlie. And to Ivana, so I could not finish that lovely bowl of pasta, but my guy sure did...and we have been back for more. The food onboard has been good everywhere. We finally learned to get to the theatre early to get seats. The comedic juggler was excellent, and we have had some good musicians. Magic guy...not so good, plus we could hardly see nor understand magic does not work!

Big new dance venue last night had to be cancelled due to rolling seas and safety concerns. A female impressionist (not impersonator!) quickly filled in the slot and was awesome...what a voice range. Hope to see her again.

We may lose satellite ability by tomorrow, since there are only fish in the ocean and they don't require a signal. Weather is sunny, windy, and 70ish. Seas are calming down. Perfect. We got to enjoy the galley tour yesterday...also learned that we will be in Freeport Wed and expect to depart @ 5 on Thurs, losing a sea day en route to Galveston. Apparently we need all 6 sea days to get to the Bahamas period, no matter which port, however we have to use Freeport for their repair facility. No choice. Bugger. We will manage.

Life is good. WYWH!

Cool win! Did you pick up any tricks from Radu?

You're on a cruise... you're going to enjoy it no matter the itinerary! Hopefully, the repair is monir and will be taken care of swiftly. If they need a hand you can always loan them MM! Actually, my washing machine flooded my laundry room so I could actually use MM today! Instead of fixing her - again - I think it may be time to retire the old gal.

Enjoy! big hugs xoxo

Pasta...I love pasta the very best. Eat a few bites for me.

I know you and Dick will roll with the punches. After all you're on a cruise so how bad could it be.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs to you both. :)

Amanda and I had pasta for dinner but it was at an Olive Garden and not on a cruise ship so probably wasn't half as good as the stuff you got!

Best wishes for smoother seas soon!
