Possibly next March. I wanted t work another year to save some additional overtime to help me pay next year's Sky Princess cruise.....

Thought that the date must have been pushed out as you had not mentioning retiring at the end of this March.
But helping to pay for cruising is a very good reason to stay on.

Happy weekend.to Bob and Jo.

Think that Paul may be back sometime this weekend. Hope they get back OK with the blizzards in the East.

Thanks for the good weekend wishes. I only have two overtime shifts this weekend (tonight @2200 as the desk sergeant and tomorrow @2200 as the Dispatcher. Gotta make that OT as a 21 day Western Med/Transatlantic, in one of two OS suites on a new ship, with a three day pre-cruise stay in Venice ain't gonna be cheap.....

I am sure it is not cheap by any stretch. But it is an experience you will never forget.

HI all!

Ann ~ our weather up here has been great, cool & sunny with NO snow!
Did you ever see the movie "Letters to Juliet"? I bought it & love it as it has some great scenes in Verona, Siena & Tuscany & a nice story too. I'm going to Verona after my Venice cruise instead of Cinque Terre since my good knee is acting up so I'm afraid to chance the hills & stairs of CT.

Bob ~ what's another year, you're still young?! I retired when I was 60 & found it early enough.

You all have a nice weekend too. Wonder when Grandpaul's due back, was the cruise longer than a week?

Jo,
Glad to hear that you are having some good weather and not the terrible stuff like around New York.


Yes, I saw Letters to Juliet and really did enjoy the movie. That will be fantastic that you can visit Verona and the area around there. But so sorry to hear that your knee is acting up. Too bad we did not have money when we were younger as travel to Europe, I feel, would be so much easier if we were younger. But it is all a wonderful experience to be there any time.


Think maybe Grandpaul will be back sometime this weekend and i am sure he will have lots of stories.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

A late good afternoon from Palmdale Ca to my fellow Emerald Alum. I hope everyone is enjoying their respective Saturdays. I'm just relaxing at the moment and will be grilling dinner at about 1900. After that it's clean up and then off to work for some additional cruise fund overtime.

Hope all are well.....

Hello all. Just got back home from our bus trip from NYC. Very nice cruise and I will be back later to tell a few stories. Had to believe isn't it? 2 of my sons are over here doing some free labor for us. I don't want to stop that.

Time for one quick story right now. On the first full day of the cruise last Monday I was on the elevator with 3 other people. The door opened on a floor and a woman entered. She was reading the newsletter for the day and she asked "I didn't know they allowed BB guns on a ship". I was a little puzzled and told her that. She then showed me the item she was talking about. it read "2 PM A shootout on the BB court". Which was a shootout on a basketball court.

Welcome back Paul. Sounds like you had a good time.
Loved the story above. I am thinking that perhaps the lady was new to cruising and did not know the "lingo". But in any case, it was funny.

She was new and young. I'm back to work today. I sort of missed it. One problem is one of my favorite teams, the Univ. of Connecticut's womens basketball team is playing tonight about 3 miles from the hospital where I work. And I go to see them as often was I can. The good thing is the game is on national tv.

On Saturday of our cruise, the day before we docked in NYC, a helicopter was sent out to our ship to transfer a passenger to a hospital in Maryland. I've seen that a couple times. Pretty impressive.

On Saturday of our cruise, the day before we docked in NYC, a helicopter was sent out to our ship to transfer a passenger to a hospital in Maryland. I've seen that a couple times. Pretty impressive.
i too have been on a few ships where sick/injured passengers or crew have been helicoptered off the ship. And I so agree, it is extremely impressive if you can see any of the activity.


You in the East can all be jealous of us as we may get to 80 degrees this week. Sorry Bob but I am ready for some warm weather.
