Is that a dumpster with a built in port-a-potty? I've never seen such a dumpster. And Waste Management is missing out on a whole lot of revenue by not having advertising on our dumpsters here. :classic_biggrin:

Yes, it is a dumpster with built in port-a-potty.    First time I have ever seen one too.    Unfortunately, that is my neighbor that had excessive fire damage right before Christmas.    They started tear out while we were on our cruise and we turned onto our street we did a double take on that dumpster too.      It is called Redbox+     (I don't think they have redbox movies in the potty🤣)

 

We have both been working from home and seen various construction trades go in and out the house on a regular basis we have actually seen several guys use it since utilities are turned off at the house.

Here is my perspective after a good night's sleep. Nothing I do today will change whether I get home Sunday or not. What I won't let this storm do is rob me of my last couple of days of vacation. And no, I have not even had a Painkiller today....yet.😇

The perfect way to look at it IMO.  Especially when you consider this DIDN’T happen last weekend when you were headed to the cruise.  I feel for those from this area trying to get to FL for this weekend’s departures.

Yes I’m still going to get one. I’d like to get one before my September cruise to work with it. @twangsteris getting really good with it.

I am glad you mentioned @twangster.  I forgot that he used one.  It got me to go check out his latest review.  Great pics as usual.  If you didn’t know he used it I don’t think you would notice much difference.  Although some look like a cool drone video which wouldn’t happen on a ship.  Sometimes you can see a shadow of the stick he has it on.  I’m getting that itch to get one again.  It would be great for the Alaska cruise.  I just thought of something.  While at port you could use your cell phone internet so you would not have to worry about file size when posting video.

I can't find the ginger altoids anymore but I can get Gin Gin candies that have real ginger in them that help a lot.  Lorna Doone cookies also help too.  Just a plain shortbread that sweetens my stomach.

How funny, I brought a box of Lorna Doones with me.  I love them.

For stomach problems my first go to is ginger.  I have tins of ginger altoids that I use.  Of course check with your Dr. for any medication interactions.

I didn’t know about ginger altoids. I’ll have to look sometime for them. I have bought the candied ginger before from Whole Foods.

Just got our negative tests back for our Allure  cruise departing on Sunday. WE will be B2B2B2B2B. 

Then off for a week and then another B2B,

I booked the 30th cruise several days ago. Since I’m already on the Allure and also have February 5th booked I figured why not just stay on. 😁 Mike isn’t on the next one, but he will be back for the 5th. Maybe we will see you around the ship. All your b2b cruises sound nice. 🥂 🛳

This trip has been rough for me.  Our waiter didn’t want me to order the same desserts due to my tree nut allergy, so he has been checking on everything with the chef, including desserts.  I am eating things I never had before such as molten lava cake and I am full all the time!!!!!No one ever bothered to check on desserts for me before, just said I better not have it…..

That’s why I love you🥰

 

Aww, shucks.  Right back at you! 😍  I am glad your waiter is taking care of your allergies and giving you more options.  Less passengers must be helping.  I hope Charlie is doing better.

O.B.

Right now the forecast is for the snow to start between 10:00 & midnight tonight and end between 10:00 & midnight Saturday night. If I remember correctly, you said you aren't getting to Hartford until sometime Sunday. The Sunday weather for between Hartford and R.I. is supposed to be sunny and cold. At this point in time, I think you can sit back and enjoy the rest of your cruise. However, there is no reason that you shouldn't have a Painkiller right now.:classic_rolleyes:😇

Thank you. Flight is scheduled to land around 1:30 PM. Funny thing, I had an email from the airline today. My first thought was oh $h!t. Turned out it was a reminder that I have a flight coming up... like maybe I forgot?

 

And you are right, there is no reason why I should not have a Painkiller now.🙂

That is how I was feeling but like Sharon told me when it was time for dinner and I was already full, you don’t have to be hungry to eat!  😂

We got ours last night too. Not sure, but they may be doing it by deck on the Odyssey. (?)

My friend from 3rd grade and I never lost touch.  We call each other quite a few times a year.  

I have no idea what I was quoting.  🤣

I forgot you were also on a cruise.  Sounds like you had a great time!

Safe journeys to all heading home.

I once was on Lexington Ave., in Manhattan and saw a peddler with handbags, belts laid out neatly on the ground with a cardboard sign prominently displayed; "BLOOMINGDALE'S OUTDOOR OUTLET".  Very creative marketing.

I have a friend from HS who I am in touch with.We talk every Thursday at 7:20 PM .We take turns calling each other .

Last night, as I mentioned, it was Indian night at the buffet and after that I was in a food coma. 😋 everything was delicious, just about right spice level. I enjoyed it a little too much. I wish they kept some wheel barrows outside the WJ for us who like to overindulge on Indian food. Comparing the Anthem's Indian night to this one, prize for variety goes to Anthem. Prize for taste to Odyssey with tough competition from Anthem. 

Breakfast also has many Indian and international items. @Sea Dog no Burji.

After seeing a post about life guards and safety in pools. I must share a story that involved us a few years back. 
 

Almost every fall we do a land vacation to Disney World. Prior to that trip we had just recertified in our CPR, ACLS, PALS and  ATLS which we do every other year. 
 

So as we sit at the slide pool sipping our over priced Long Island Iced Tea ( it Is what it is) we noticed a dad playing with his toddler in the 3 foot area of the pool as his other child was floating face down behind him. We jump to action at the same time 2 lifeguards do. We reach the child as they were flipping him over and the startling effect made him cry. We do not know how long he floated but they encouraged the parents to go to the hospital. They did not. 
 

It was scary. But thankfully the child was rescued. Yes I am sure it happed quick. Cannot take your eyes off your child even with life guards. 
 

I respect lifeguards and the job they do. 
 

Take care.

Don't you love how when you recertify they change everything up and tell you the way they insisted it had to be done the last time doesn't work so well.😏😐

During a recent moment of reflectiveness as I was staring out over the ocean I was thinking how blessed I, and all of us here, are to have the means to be able to do what we love. So, to all of my C.C. friends.... Cheers.

We are enjoying our last sea day. Attended Captain's Corner. Remembered to take our two free photos. Packed my suitcase.

 

This sailing, no one has mentioned the C word or made announcement regarding it. No Vision or Rhapsody or Jewel has chased us. Not that I was looking out for them.

 I notice deck 6 fire door on one side closed when I was checking out the art work in the front stair bank today. There were no signs posted......it was just closed on one side, the other side was open and there seemed normal activity going on. Oh well, I went my way. I am not the one to set an alarm to go out and count how many heads left ship and how many came on.....really, to those who do that instead of enjoying your cruise and making most of it, seriously, get a life! I get it that people like to be well informed, but "counting" .....please get a life.
