We got good news this morning...the spot on MM's noggin is fine. We like that. Not that we were worried, but it is good to have the confirmation.
He is feeling back to normal and is already gone to help a friend with a fridge problem. He needs to go to the park office and work on our Internet problem. We are on the outer range of the multiple towers, so our signal is frequently weak, plus we seem to keep getting transferred from one tower to the other. I so miss our DSL.
We are very saddened by the cruise disaster in Italy. We were on a beautiful sister ship on almost this exact route in October. There is much speculation on the cause of the grounding, but that is all that it is at the moment--speculation.
Cruising is still very safe, but this has made me aware of some things to do differently on future cruises. Number 1 is to always have ID on my person. I normally leave my cabin with only my key card, chap stick, and a book. That key card may not be good for much in the event of total electrical failure. The passports in the cabin won't do us any good if we can't get to them. I will at least have paper copies in a plastic bag with me...and a flashlight. MM always has his wallet with him, so he at least could be identified. And he would be in the thick of trying to get other folks to safety. And so would I.
So it is helpful to be a bit prepared...but not scared. Yes, we will cruise again without fear, but with a little more awareness.
Count your blessings. Happy Monday. Life is good, y'all!
