Nope...Michiganders had dibs on the first Snipe hunts.  😉 Grew up there...we also did a lot of this sport:

My underwater submarine races and snipe hunting tricks were in the 50’s. Are you sure you predated that?

Our pot holes are not caused by cold weather.....they’re  caused by crappy road building and repair.

Laura used to have a mumu when the kids were little. It was very vibrant. Our youngest called it Mommy's Party Dress.🤣🤣

I bought at least one every time I went to Hawaii. Never wore them outside the house, but twice now I’ve done curbside dinner pickup in one. They keep me from living in nightgowns. and they’re just as comfortable!

You had a bathtub? And a window?

Our first cabin was inside upper and lowers, no porthole, and the shower was over the toilet. 

We had to put the toilet paper on the foot of the bed and close the bathroom door to take a shower.

LOL...born right in the middle.   Making me a solid Baby Boomer.  😉  

Yes, we have plenty of pot holes around us here in Central Florida too..made me feel right at home when I moved here in the early 80s.  😄

Most of ours in Jacksonville come from water pipes under the streets leaking. That sucks the sand out from under the pavement. 

The road crews finally come along after innumerable cars are out of alignment, and patch the hole. They never repair the leaking pipes!

Old St Augustine Rd in JAX looks like it has more vertical stripes than horizontal. 

For about a year, it’s bump after bump 

the locals move over into the turn lane to go around them. Then the bumps flatten out for two or three weeks, then they start sagging. 

If you can’t change lanes, you start wondering if yours will be the car that goes when the patch gives way. 

Sure enough, at 3am some night, a driver gets a surprise when his front end takes a dive. 

Week in, week out, year in, year out. It never changes. 

At least in Michigan, they can blame the weather!

I joined Cruise Critic 20 years ago this coming August. 

It has been a source of advice and entertainment. 

Thanks to CC, I have booked great excursions, and frequently have done those excursions with brand new friends. 

I have experienced others’ pain from illness to death of a loved one at sea.  

I have experienced the joy of a new cruiser whose life, like mine, changed because of that first cruise. 

Best of all has been the constant connection to so many people who were just friends I hadn’t met yet!

I was referring to the bathroom being part of the cabin.  I think we had the same cabin as you😉

Ours was cabin M22 on the Royale. First cruise, and we booked the lowest price because my DH was sure he wouldn’t like it. He went to Japan by ship when he was in the Air Force and swore never again!

@jagsfan Beautiful post.  

 

@John&LaLa Yes, thank you @LauraS for moving it back to this board.

 

And a BIG thank you to @Ourusualbeach for starting this thread and to EVERYONE who has contributed to keeping us connected by posting (even repeats, especially the really good ones)!

 

That said, if this is a repeat, IMHO it’s a really good one:
