Which graphically can be presented like this –

You would be totally and complete right. I am going around the bend. More accurately, making a second loop. The only challenge to this one is coordinating with the Eldest who is joining me. We tried this a couple of years ago – an RCL cruise out of Dubai and managed to miss each other in the airport, at the check-in and back at the airport. Obviously, we finally found each other but it was not an auspicious start.

I want this year to be better. When I started to give her directions she looked at me rather strangely – no, she said, I don’t know where anything is in Barcelona – I haven’t been there before.

Oh – Ms Soprano was there twice on Model UN projects. Barcelona was the departure port in fall of 2009 when I took Maus and her roommate around the Western Med. George and I have been numerous times for business. Come to think of it – I don’t remember the Mole having been here either. But I should not getting the girls confused. I am not that old….

So wish us fair seas and good sailing. Not to worry – the captain on this ship is not Italian.

    Isn’t that the route you were just on??? Why don’t you just get a job as a ship’s doc?
    You have read the internet story about the woman who retired onto a cruise ship because it was cheaper than a retirement home? Are you next?
    Say hi to Shana for me,

    Hmmm- the graphic didn’t show up, but I get the idea. I’ll second the motion about the non-Italian Captain- Brad has been quoting Churchill after he lost the
    Prime Minister-ship after WWII. While on a cruise he was asked why he was on an Italian ship, and responded that the food and wine were excellent, the
    service superb and in case of emergency, there was none of that c*** about women and children first.

    The computer doesn’t like my Latin spelling, but “the thing speaks for itself.”

    Fair winds and following seas- I don’t know what following seas are but that sailors say it’s a very good thing…. I”ll send birthday greetings now.

    Now, getting a job as a ships doc might just be construed as work ……
