And the hat trick (or whatever it's called when you score a bunch of times in a row)! Check them off people:

 

- restroom pics - check

- margartias - check

- weird food items/porn - check

- hand drawn maps - check

- Sid's shirts - check

 

You are on a roll!

I hope to add some new items to the "check" list soon...

Saint Greg would have shuddered at the thought of eating bar snacks right there...

You’re right. I love malted milk balls and runts...but I won’t eat them out of a bowl like that. They need to be out of the package.

Yikes!!!

Yes, and they were GREAT! I so wanted to have the ant egg tacos, but they were $25 each... These were $4 each

Wow, that was the most comfortable bed I have ever laid down on, ever... I didn't want to get up at all, but there's this "thing" that I'm supposed to do today...

It only took me ten minutes to figure out how to work the coffee maker this time!

It's looking like it's going to be a beautiful day here in Miami. I can see Royal Caribbean something of the seas off in the distance...

I've only ever checked a bag with the porters one time on a cruise... I'm making double sure that it makes it... Actually, the case itself is more important than the junk I have in there...

It rained pretty hard a few minutes ago. They say that there are supposed to be showers on and off throughout the day...

I hate those things.I never get the order of the water and cup right. It always pops back open after I put the cup in. And they make small coffees. When I visited my mom last year she had one and I had to make coffee four times because I drink half a pot...or a full pot of my smaller Mr. Coffee pot. This year when I visited she had upgraded to one that had a big water basin. I didn’t realize I didn’t have to pour water in for each cup. I poured it in the wrong spot and it went all over the counter.

It looks like the current wave of rain is about to pass on by... I'm going to walk somewhere and try to find some breakfast. Two tiny cups of coffee weren't nearly enough fuel for this machine...

I went out to find some breakfast once the rain let up... This is one of my favorite views in Brickell... I love that curved building.IMG_20190921_084725.thumb.jpg.fc3e91b3f864f6116fb49b4d91807644.jpg

It looks like these d@mn e scooters have made their way down here to Miami... It's not so much the scooters themselves, but the people riding them... I don't really have anything against millennials per se... Well, maybe their hairstyles. Or, the music they listen to... Or, their political beliefs... Wait. What was I talking about? Oh, the e scooters... Yeah, I just don't like 'em... There, I said it...

My check in time is 12:30-1:00, but I'm going to just go on over about 11:00 or so... I don't have anything else to do, and I can't stay at the hotel past check out...

You’re right about those scooters. We’ve had them here in a San Diego for a few years now.

I'm showered now, and I guess I'm going to start making my way over to the port soon... If I sit around this hotel any longer I'm going to go crazy...
