Yup...it was many years before the Vietnam Vets were recognized;  finally, a parade in their honor up Broadway in NYC.  Our 3 daughters and myself lined up to watch Jim march...

It certainly wasn't easy when Jim returned home.

I worked in wall st area starting in 1967 , one day I got out of the subway to head to my job at US Lines in one broadway and there were police shoulder to shoulder for blocks there was a draft protest scheduled , draft center was a couple of blocks away on Whitehall st.

I read on one of the live threads there was something like 600 to 625 passengers on your test cruise.    Any under 1000 had to feel so empty, which is good and bad.   I like when the casino is hopping with good vibes.   did the casino give out certificates at the end of your sailing?

I don’t know if they did.  We didn’t gamble too much.

Remember "white out" came in different colors - canary, goldenrod are the first two I can remember using.

 

Whatever you do, don't put it on fingernails. I was bored one day at work. My nails had to grow out. Nothing took it off.

Sorry I have not posted much. My life is pretty boring these days. Hopefully things will pick up.

Maybe buy that Insta360 ONE X2 you been thinking about.  As you are learning how to use it you can post some cool stuff.  They are having a sale on the creative kit right now.

CC wires crossed again?  I don't know who @Gail604 is and I don't know why when I post on here (the above post), it is not from me but from Gail.  This is the second time now.  Too screwy.  Maybe CC is trying to tell her to "subscribe" to Dani's Routine thread.  😁  Anyway, that's my t-shirt up above.

On a travel related note, Nate and I have appointments on Thursday for our TSA approvals. 🤞

 

I’m also surprising my mom with a trip to Moab, Utah next weekend. It was a hasty decision made after having 2 glasses of wine last night, but I pre-paid the hotel so we’re definitely going. We may only drive through the parks and find off the beaten path places to visit like we usually do, but it should be quite the scenic drive from Colorado Springs to Moab.

 

 

Sounds like a lovely trip. Although I cannot help but wonder where you would have ended up with 2 more glasses of wine!

TSA should be a piece of cake. They ask a couple of stupid questions and take fingerprints.

I finally found “Live Report.  I kept thinking it was the main CC home page like the first pic.  But it’s not.

Found it too!! On my phone, it's on the 3-bar menu to the right of the "Cruise Critic Community" banner. Once I tap on that, its about halfway down the drop-down menu.

Our first time visiting Curacao was during a hurricane...I believe it may have been 1990.  We were told it was the first time in 100 years that the Walking Bridge was closed.  Luckily for us, we had an excursion booked, where a taxi picked us up at the ship and drove over a bridge that brought us into town.  It was very crowded that day...as it turned out, Queen Beatrice from the Netherlands was visiting...we actually saw her as her entourage passed in front of us.  

When we were last in Curaçao in 2019 we met a merchant who lived in Brooklyn ,one block away from me ,but he was much younger.

Sharon and I did this about 5 weeks ago.  She got approved by the end of the week, mine isn’t yet.  We called and they said wait 30 day and if no approval, call back. We called back and they said they would notify the approval folks [don’t remember what they call them].  Yesterday they notified us and they said they need no additional information at this time.  If we don’t know the status we are to call again in 2 weeks.  I say all of this so you don’t waste your time on hold before 30 days have passed.  We are wanting approval before October 1.

You left out the drugs and lack of hygiene and clean clothes... or even dirty clothes for that matter.

Regardless of that the Woodstock festival had the greatest assemblance of talent imaginable .I was not there and I have posted the reason why many times.Not going there is the worst music mistake of my life.

Agree.

 

Nope. Close though. The evening of day two we heard it was a free for all. So morning of day three, three of us headed south heading for Woodstock (Bethel). Took the back roads thru small farm villages. Pulled over. Three long hairs in a van. Profiling? Hmmm. Ends up all three of us were busted for not caring our draft cards. Escorted into the village(?) paid our fines (cash) and asked not to return. It could have been a lot worse. 😉 So we headed back north on fumes. Had to wait and see the movie in spring of 1970. It was released on my 18th birthday.

 

June of 2020 my wife and I had plans of flying back to NY and on our agenda was take a day and head down to Woodstock (Bethel). Crap, once again close to making it to Woodstock but we all now what happened to most travel plans. Bummer. Maybe Summer of 2022?

My friends Woodstock tribute band Retro69 has been booked to play Bethel next summer.The 9th.consecutive year they will appear. You can see their past years performances on You Tube .

Yes, I passed the draft center every morning after getting off the Staten Island Ferry.  I began working at 2 Broadway, Moore-McCormack Lines, in June. 1966.

Our last time in Curacao was also 2019, in November on the Silhouette.  We did the ABC Islands.  It was so hot on that trip!
