So I did not get to clean yesterday. I decided today was not going to be a good day either. I am continuing to gather and organize for our soon to be cruise just a mere 25 days away. Today I got “thee” earrings out of the safe. 
 

I was fortunate to have been gifted them on a recent cruise(as recent as they get maybe 4 years ago). They are made by the master and only few were made. 
 

First  you have to gather the drink swizzle sticks. Carefully remove the tops then gently wire them.  
 

Shown  below.

I have a couple of pair similar to these.  Made by some friends using the old swizzle sticks.  Love them!

What happened with the battery replacement?

 

Ended up with absolutely no noticeable improvement.  Really no way of knowing if it even got replaced. At least not that I am aware 😪

Cardinals smoked the Mets

 

I didn't realize the Jays were in the hunt


Last night they forgot with their 2/0 loss to the Rays. They are tied with Boston and the Yankees for the wild card.  All are 9 games back.

Do the Jays have a lot of contenders still on their schedule. That's the Met's challenge

I think this is the Reds year for a wild card in the NL.  I've watched a few of their games and they seem to have the "It" factor.  Good mix of young and old.  In a small market town like Cincinnati, these kind of teams don't last long.  Young talent moves to where the money is.

We're in the middle of the last season of Bosch.  It's amazing how the actress who plays Maddie has grown up in the series.  The Defeated is up next for us.

I think this was a Rum Punch. I'm not sure if they normally charge for the glass, but it was free this time. I thought they did normally charge,  but I guess I'll find out in 2 days.

Pina Colada was my first drink and they didn't ask if I wanted it in the special glass. The second time they did

 

I have this glass/tumbler! I believe it was $8 (? or so?) with a fruit drink. I just wanted the tumbler. bar guy said it has to come with a drink. I have used it many times. It also serves a good ice bucket to cart ice from the machine to the room. And it is much bigger in real life than the picture...or is this the newer size now?

Sorry, buy I thought the Allure was out of PE. I don't know if there is an office in PC.

 

Allure is currently out of PC doing 7 night cruises....to be replaced by Harmony, then move south to PE.

I am posting for the first time from a phone.   I am sure I will stick to the iPad most of the time.  It's easier to type on the phone but I had to turn the zoom all the way up to read.

I am enjoying the phone so far but there is so much to learn and so much to to get in order.  It sort of reminds me of moving.

So many passwords.  It's not that bad getting website passwords but not easy for apps.

There is a lot to learn about the camera but I tested the zoom at soccer practice yesterday.  I am going to attempt to post 5 pics from the phone.  The first 3 will be optical lense at 1x, 3x, and 10x.  The next 2 will be digital zoom at 30x and 100x.

You will not see it in the first pic but I will be zooming in on a barn up by the trees.

 

1x

10x Looks really clean after that you start to get noise. Pretty typical of digital zooms but the optical zooms look great. Thanks for the examples.

I agree.  I was pleasantly surprised that 30x looked good enough for post but 100x is pretty much worthless.  But this is what I expected. 

 

One thing I like about the digital zoom.  There was someone sitting across the field that I thought I knew, zoomed in and saw that it wasn't 😃

I told Dick the people on CC said The Defeated was good. So he checked it out and liked it. So my hours spent with you guys paid off!

I don’t know anything about androids, but iPhone Settings under Battery, you can see battery health, etc. 

When I had a battery replaced by a gnome in a tiny shop, I checked, and battery health went from 78 to 100.

TSOTD:

 

No more music or message shirts.Today is the first Miscellaneous.

It is from an Alzheimer’s Walk several years ago.

The husband of a couple who we were on many cruises with and several land vacations was diagnosed with the illness in 2015 and we did the walk in his honor.
