Tis the night before Christmas


And I’m not on a cruise


But don’t think that means


I’ve got the Cruise Blues



I still have great memories


Of friends that I’ve met


And I’m hopefully thinking


About friends not met yet



So I’ll have a great time


With my family and friends


And think of you all


til the Holiday ends



Because this time of year’s


About one shining light


That brings peace, though not cruises,


So to all a Good Night!


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to All from the Kicker family!

Not the best of years, but some good:

Barb & I did 2 cruises in the same calendar year for the first time ever

CG's did about ten more cruises

CG's also got to meet Vicki, one of my favorite former cruisemates

Cheap had 2 daughters get married, which is why he's too broke to cruise for a while

Yoganut is still doing splits

QofC's Annie is growing into a beautiful young lady

Everyone else not mentioned in my other post managed to stay healthy as far as we know

So, here's a New Year's Limerick from my famous best seller (Author's note: this lim is NOT biographical!):

A young fellow made the news
It seems on his New Year's cruise
At the stroke of midnight
He came into sight
Wearing nothing but his shoes!

Kicker summed it up quite succinctly so all I can really do is echo his sentiments with respect to the wish that everyone has a safe and happy new years (don't drink and drive) and that 2013 is filled with cruise highlights.

Can't replicate or even come close to the prose from Kicker's fertile mind (don't know why but that sounds less than complimentary though it isn't meant to be) but I will give it a try.

2012 we are shedding
and with it my two daughter's weddings
now saving some money
to cruise with my honey
someplace on a ship we'll be heading.

Hey it ain't shakespeare but then again Kicker is a tough act to follow

Can't wait to get rid of this year
For friends passing we all shed a tear
Next year will be better
Hopefully finds us together

Some thoughts for the New Year:

Start off 2013 with an empty jar.
Fill it with notes of good things that happen. (Little and big)
On New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year.

National Cheeseburger Day, National Hat Day - every day has a special item/person it honors. I suppose I could build up my post count by posting the "day" of the day every day. Today's easy:

HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY!!
