Somewhere, beyond the sea.....

Look at this great big boat - it's the Carnival Victory:


Isn't it pretty & shiny? Don't you wish you were on it? Well, all week long, Kathie Lee has been in my head, chanting...
"Every morning, every evening, ain't we got fun?
Not much money, oh but honey, ain't we got fun?"

At noon tomorrow I will be on that big ol' bucket o' fun, along with BS, my niece, my brother, and 3 friends. Whoo-hoo!!! We partook of the fun ship last year as well, and last week the niece called the brother and pondered, "Uncle dearest......"

Oooh, I better explain that, my family tree being the gnarly and twisty thing that it is, my brother is only a few years older than my niece, so....
"Uncle dearest, I have been thinking about this, and I don't think we took full advantage of all the food opportunities last year." Disclaimer - this was paraphrased. She doesn't really call him 'Uncle dearest'.

Well niecie dearest, we couldn't agree more, so this year will be a total food orgy. Just the thing to help me train for a bazillion mile bike ride. Don't worry, Pop. I will partake of some physical activity, most likely in the form of pulling the penny slots with one hand and sipping a delicious fruity cocktail with the other.
Maybe, just maybe, I'll go to their gym. Maybe. I make no promises.

This particular cruise leaves our fair city on a Saturday, goes far enough out to sea to open up the casinos and the duty-free booze store, then it bobs around for a bit and brings us back Monday morning, hence it is known as 'The Booze Crooze." We. can. not. wait!!
