RIDGID, I hear you on the 10 to 12hour 7 day week.

My wife also an educator has a similar schedule. Isn't crazy what we do just to float around the ocean for a week or so? And worth it I might add. Life is good


I was told a long time ago that we work to support the things that we like to do.

My daughter is a teacher and I do not envy her vocation at all. It seems as if she is in a no win situation. I don't think that I could do it.

Yes life is good for me. I am very fortunate to be born in the USA.

Ridgid:

I like what you said, that we work to support the things we like to do. I guess I'm blessed because I like what I'm doing to support our travel habit. A few days at sea, a few days in Las Vegas (and we aren't even gamblers) and all that work was well worth it.

Your travel looks like ours. We've done the Golden three times ina row. This year we do the Diamond at spring break. A nutty time to go but that's when we can. Counting the days until the end of March

I'm looking forward to going on a different ship this fall when we do the mexican Rivira. Not sure which ship or even which line but a change will be nice. I love the Golden, but if I hear "shirleyyyyyyyy" one more time I'm gonna puke. Enjoy the diamond. I believe that the head waiter from the golden (as well as the grand) is now on the diamond... his name is Robert... pass on a hello for me... tell him it's an old friend from the golden.

thanks guys
after an exhausting, long day at work on those horrible gravel roads in livingston county, you got me laughing. Surely Uber needs a new act. He has a lot of talent.

Hi Lyn,
We live east of U.S.23 and North of Clyde Rd.I know what you mean by our dirt roads.They're not too good this time of the year.Maybe we'll see you around in your Fed Ex truck.We would like to get together in the summer after the weather breaks but that could take awhile in this state plus we have our cruise coming up in April.We'll keep everyome informed.
Kathy and Dennis

Yes ...we just booked last minute. Had to get an inside cabin but we are still very excited about this cruise!
We have heard it is a great ship. My husband and I have cruised 3 X's this will be our 1st Princess. I am looking forward to Belize.
Have you heard from many passengers?
Lucky
