Last day at sea


I had dinner tonight with group from Cruise Critic. The dinner had been organized early and there were about 16 signed up. By the time it came to this evening, the numbers were down to six of us. Everyone pretty much was packed and the only remaining thing on anyone’s agenda was turning in their activity cards for prizes.

Yep, kind of like collecting autographs, baseball cards or National Park stamps – NCL hands out little participation slips for each activity. People collect them all up for points and turn them in the last night of the cruise for swag.

I was the only one at the table who didn’t have either a clue or a point.

Seriously? You didn’t pick up your slips from any of the activities?

What activities? Was my rejoiner. I didn’t go to any of the contests or show or auctions or bingo or….

Well, what did you do?

I relaxed and had a great time……

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
