I will say, the evening of the Captain's Gala on the Radiance in July '05, wherein my elderly folks wanted, like many others, to have their picture taken with the cap'n, our cap'n (Borland) was a less than enthusiastic chap during the picture taking. I understand having to do that once a week with a bunch of giddy yokels could make you less than enthusiastic, but to appear bored (and the picture proves it) is less than professional.

I could only imagine how bored they must be at dinner when having to listen to people's stories about back home on the ranch or homestead, or the same questions week after week after week. Wow, the more I write here, the more empathy I have for the Cap'n.
