Besides, at my age, I can't memorize all the 18k plus posts over the past year 🙂 so even some of the repeats are "new". 

One of the side effects of getting old is no reruns on TV and you are always meeting new people.

please, please, everyone......don't ever let this thread end!  Well, unless cruising resumes pretty soon....

Agree entirely. There are a number of contributors who have done an especially good job. No names as do not want to omit anyone. Even the one-sies and       two-sies are great. Keep up the good work everyone and keep posting even when cruising resumes. Stay well...

Would you like to buy a tie? They are only five dollars."
The Taliban shouted hysterically, "Idiot Infidel!  I do not need such an overpriced western adornment. I spit on your ties. I need water!"
"Sorry, I have none, just ties - pure silk, and only five dollars." 
"Pahh!  A curse on your ties!  I should wrap one around your scrawny little neck and choke the life out of you, but I must conserve my energy and find water!"

If you continue over that hill to the east for about two kilometres, you will find a restaurant.
It has the finest food and all the ice-cold water you need. Go in peace”.
