Royal Caribbean Cruisers -- How Are Things Where You Are? (was "Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?)


Recommended Posts

Your intrepid reporter Tree_skier, checking in from the site of the great Manua Loa eruption. Sadly the closest I can get to the actual eruption is still a fair distance away.

if you look really really close you can see the flames from the lava. If I had a proper camera with a proper zoom. Unfortunately this is the best my IPhone could do.

I'm not one to point fingers.... I read "Harlequin" type romance books -- you know, where they have zingy chemistry before they even talk, and then have a big misunderstanding on Page 184 that causes them to break up, and then they miraculously end up together ten pages later.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  

People make fun of those, but the formulaic plots are probably why I like them -- no mystery to solve, no big metaphor or symbolism to figure out, just like cotton candy for your brain, no thinking required, just escapism!

The wife of one of my friends from college has written 20 books .Many are likely in that category. The only people who seem to be familiar with her are those who read her books .11 of them have been featured on Good Reads.

Her name is Gloria Malette.

We would like to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers for our family.

Eric's Mother passed away around 10 am.  

Eric and his Brother spent the morning trying to find her Will and other legal documents, banking info, etc.   He phoned at work and I suggested they look under her mattress...tada  they found alot of it under her mattress.  

I think that scared him that I knew how a crazy old lady that was paranoid of everyone trying to steal from her would think.😇

They have begun the arrangements to have her cremated.  Just not sure what to do with her ashes yet.  She never told anyone and is not written down.

Eric and I booked to sail on Anthem this coming Sunday.   He's not sure he will make it but is insisting that I go and enjoy a solo cruise.   

I'm not sure how I feel about yet.

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. May she find the peace she was always looking for.

That is very cool, Dave! I love volcanoes and how impressive they are. You are seeing an event that hasn't occurred since 1984. ☺️ We flew over the 'dormant' crater last time we were in Hawaii on a helicopter excursion.

I’m so sorry for your loss even though there have been difficulties in your relationship.  It can be very hard to lose someone that you had a tremulous relationship with.  Believe me, I’ve been dealing with that myself.  From everything I have known about you, Eric is extremely fortunate to have you by his side.  You have always been extremely nice to me.  I’ll give you all the support that I can in your difficult time as your loving husband deserves it.  👼

Oh Debbie, I'm so sorry. I am sure it is very sad for Eric. And I will put in another endorsement for the Neptune Society. The ashes can wait for distribution when you have more time to think about it. Eric should get some stuff done before you leave, but then take the cruise, and just relax. It will help to get away.

The Neptune society has been a great help with both my parents.  I can’t give them enough credit for a very low key involvement at a particular time of need.

I agree.  P,a what you can. But Eric should cruise with you and relax with you.  I’m sure his mother would appreciate him being able to grieve with the one that means the most to him.

I am so very sorry.  I pray for Eric, you and family to be comforted at this difficult time.

Yeah, what I figured you could see.  On the upside, you are seeing flames from the volcano.  Either that or a peaceful 2020 riot.  Although at over 10,000 feet elevation, that seems unlikely!😂🤣
