After Judith finished her Rehab we went to the Golden Coral for dinner. They are trying to upgrade their dining experience which was nice.

Us too! Didn’t take me long to find this was the Carnival 🙄 Legend out of Australia. A family fight according to the news report. Idiots.

it can happen anywhere. Royal is not immune from this type of thing. It depends on the crowd and in many cases, the amount of alcohol that has been consumed. I cruise both as well as NCL. They are all the same.

Daily Mail reports the savage fist fight which got 23 members of the same family group kicked off a 'cruise from hell' started when someone stood on another passenger's thong, according to a witness. Shocking footage showed up to 30 passengers beating each other on the Carnival Legend ship while it was 220km off Jervis Bay, New South Wales at around 1am on Friday. Desperate security guards resorted to violence to stop the alcohol-fulled brawl, which was one of many to terrorise passengers on board the 10-day cruise of the South Pacific.

This was an ethnic family group of 27. In Australia that particular ethnicity is well known for starting fights and riots. It would have been hell on that ship.

I would never cruise with Carnival. It has a reputation as the loud party cruise line.

Glad you mentioned that. I had an entirely different picture!
This story is kind of like the old "gossip" game....it changes every time it is repeated. It started out with 30 people, then dropped to 27 and then the story on tonight's news stated that there were 23 family members

I actually cringed when I saw that Security guy kick the man down on the floor.

You were correct in just sayin'.

That had to be the most inept and unprofessional security force I have ever seen.

Here is a link to FOX News with a story about the 23 people who were kicked off the Carnival Legend.

http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2018/0...ath-brawl.html

Here is a video of the trouble makers boarding a small boat as they left the ship while the passengers jeered at them.




Unbelievable!

This morning we are going down to Ormond Beach to join Tom & Julie for brunch at the Oceanside Country Club.

On the way home we will do some light shopping and then stop at the old house for another load of stuff to bring to the new house. I will also drive the Kubota to the new house so I can load up all of the trimmings from the crape myrtle trees and haul them out to the road where the County can pick them up.


We may get an offer on the old house this week. Our agent showed the house for the third time yesterday and told the couple they needed to give her a bank pre-approval letter for a mortgage before she could accept an offer. We are hoping for a good one.


At 9:00 am Thursday morning I have my PET Scan which will tell me if the cancer is gone or not. I hope I can get the results on Friday.

We got a lot of shopping done today and Judith dropped me off at the old house and I drove the Kubota to the new house.

Wide open it will only go 24 mph and I was constantly being passed by cars and trucks going 60-70 mph.

But is is here now and may stay here is we get a good offer on the house this week.

Early yesterday morning I drove Judith's Pickup to the Ford Dealer in Palm Coast to have the tires checked.

We had been getting a low tire pressure warning but it did not identify which tire was low. So I asked the dealer to check all of the tires for nails or screws just to be sure. There were none but they talked with me about replacing all of the tires, including the spare that has never been used.

The truck is a 2012 which means it was built in 2011 which means the tires are seven (7) years old.

Ford recommends replacing any tire that is six (6) years old due to possible deterioration because of age.


So one more thing, new tires, has been added to the lost of things to do when our old house is sold.

Yesterday afternoon we took Booty to the Vet for her annual checkup, a booster shot, and a toenail trim.

We also took stool (poop) samples from both Booty and Spotty to be checked for worms and the results on both were negative.



Today, at 10 am, I have a follow up appointment with my ENT Doc and Judith has another rehab appointment at 3pm.
