Wow! I didn't know that about Mark. Guess he won't be needing his basketball hoop tip jar for a while. Yes, I hit it off with Risa. As soon as she knew where I was from she enjoyed talking about things from home whenever she'd see me. She bought me a few beers too.
That was a strange cruise as it was right after 911. A portion of those on board were leftover from the previous cruise as they couldn't get home and had boarded in Barbados. Risa did an outstanding job talking with everyone. Lots of people with anxieties. It turned out to be one of the friendliest cruises I have ever been on.
I doubt Risa remembers me, but I'll give her a ping on Facebook along with congrats on being assigned the Fantasy home ported in her home state.
You know anything about Rick Atha?
