On the Briny

If the snow lets us out we will leave for a twelve day sojourn into warmer climes.  Our cruise will take us into numerous ports, which all look the same but they all specialize in some great alcoholic drink and cuisine.  There will be snorkeling and walking and generally a feeling of staying warm.  We will travel with old friends who are great to be with on a trip like this.  We are looking forward to touring the Rum distilleries.

As I write this I am seething that Sears and Walmart won't help all those families of Bangladeshis who died in sweat shop fires last year.  The factories made clothes for them.  Sears and Walmart feebly say they didn't know they bought clothes from them.  We decided they will no longer have our business and we have been loyal to Sears for many years.

One thing about these cruises.  About five days in to sailing you just sort of tune out of worrying about these kinds of things for a week.  That is a good thing.

I've been meaning to go to Sears and get an oil change, a tune up and some tires. I guess not. Sometimes it's good to be disorganized. Thanks for the heads up.

Bon Voyage! I can almost picture your group, swaggering back to the ship singing pirate songs.
