  1. I have heard that since we are all social distancing for Thanksgiving this year that many will be missing the usual Turkey and Mashed Potatoes. I thought ahead and went to the liquor store yesterday and purchased a bottle of Absolut and a bottle of Wild Turkey. Close enough for me this year. Can anyone recommend a good pumpkin flavored liquor for dessert? Happy Thanksgiving all.
  2. I agree, when I was on the Eurodam in November of 2019, they still had an area on the left side that was used for the book exchange. It was on the opposite side of the explorations cafe.
  3. Do you think that is a real zoom meeting, or just the skeleton crew that is still at work?
  4. I have always used the book exchange aboard HAL so I would certainly miss them on future cruises. I do enjoy reading a good book while sitting on deck watching the sea slide by. When HAL started cutting back on the libraries I started bringing 7 or 8 books along and would leave them in the exchange a book section when I finished them. I usually found enough other books to keep me busy when I had finished those that I had brought. On sea days I would usually read a couple of books each day, and I also prefer a real book, rather than an E-reader. E-readers are fine for those who enjoy them
  5. For all of us that miss our sailaway threads with the current hold on cruising, there is some hope for us. Today the Celebrity Apex is on the Fort Lauderdale camera as she docked earlier today. No, it's not one of our blue hulled beauties, but it does give us some hope that cruising and our sailaways may resume some time in the future. If nothing else it gives us time to think up proper insults for this ugly ship. Some of us certainly enjoyed our shots at the Edge and the Apex appears to follow the same mold. Just seeing a cruise ship in port though certainly gives us hope.
  6. That should work as well. It is a well known fact that a diet soda or a light beer cancel out all the calories of whatever you eat. At least I saw that on the internet once, and if it is on the internet I am sure it has to be true. LOL
  7. Can I get an order of large fries and a Diet Coke with that? Thank you.
  8. Call me crazy, but I think this guy really made his point, don't you?
  9. That is the first time I ever saw an elephant give mouth to mouth to save a life.
  10. Wow, after I had my auto accident, I really felt like a horse's Patoot.
  11. I don't remember those trees at Woodstock, but I do remember all the grass, and trust me, I would have never forgotten her.
  12. You really have to applaid this couple for their excellent taste in clothing.
  13. Amen to that Roy. Thank you both for giving us all the daily and a little ray of sunshine each day while we are all stuck on land instead of being at sea.
  14. Thank you to everyone who posts on this thread. Over 8000 posts to bring us all a laugh or two while we are all stuck at home instead of enjoying a cruise like we would rather be doing. In the words of Forrest Gump. Life is like a box of chocolates, but its the nuts that make the world go round.
  15. Ruth, Mine shows the same as yours, but if you try clicking on your user name, the last option on the list should give you a way to sign out. See if that works for you. Good Luck.
  16. I got an email showing that the new Ryndam was going to have its name changed to the Rotterdam and become the new flagship for HAL. My first cruise with HAL was on the old Ryndam and I did a TA on the former Rotterdam. I enjoyed both ships so I hope HAL names another one the Ryndam in the future. I would love to be back on a ship again but until this corona virus is under control, I just don't see myself enjoying a trip at sea. I have underlying health issues so I have to be careful, but I sure do miss that salt air and ocean breeze.
  17. I had gotten one a couple weeks ago and another one came today. The one's I got were a promotion from the casino, and also included $250 in casino play plus free drinks while in the casino. I have gotten these in the past but this is the most generous one I have seen. The one I got the reservation had to be booked by July 31st, but you could book a cruise up until March of next year. I am not a big gambler so I was kind of surprised when I got the first one a few years ago. They used to be for a free inside and then you paid for upgrades. All you paid was the port charges unless you book
  18. Father, I just got home so I will join you for the 5:00 PM singalong. That way you don't have to sing alone. I do miss our toot fests. Thanks Redneck Bob.
  19. Thanks Copper, I know I miss the toot fests that we get to enjoy all winter long. Hope all the crew members get home safely.
  20. Lois, sorry to hear that you were in the hospital for 6 days. I hope you are doing much better now and on the way to a full recovery. My biggest issue is COPD from bad habits when I was younger. I quit smoking almost 20 years ago, but I didn't quit early enough as it damaged my lungs and with this Covid-19, that is not a good thing. It woud be great to be on a cruise, but I think I will probably wait a little bit to see how the first few months of cruising work out before I get brave enough to get back aboard a ship. Take care of yourself.
  21. Hi Lois, I think you are right, it will depend on supply and demand. I'm sure that there will be plenty of people that will be ready to cruise when things open up again, but are they all going to be willing to be the first test tube sailors until we see what happens when things resume? I know I have some underlying health issues so I doubt if I will be rushing back again until I am confortable with sailing on a cruise ship again and being able to get off and on the ship safely and healthy. Hope you are staying safe down there in Sunny Florida. Neil
