I'll meet you there, Vince, but only if that famous Crystal nut container is full of cashews! 🤩🥰

 

Patty

 

Yay Patty!  You're in luck, tonight there are cashews in the containers -- and I'm in luck (besides your company), the hot hors d'oeuvres are pigs in a blanket.  🐷 😋

Oh man! I always manage to miss the pigs in blankets. And those potato thingies with crème fraîche.

Would love to join you both for 007’s, cashews and piggies,  but it’s not 5:00 yet in my neck of the woods.

 

Some of us are just laggards, I guess! 


Brian, when I lived in SF my coworkers shamed me into not wearing a watch.  I think it was mainly to stop my frustration with Muni, but it would also solve this daily happy hour disparity.  😉  OTOH, does the 5:00 rule even apply on weekends?! 
 

(It is it actually a weekend, right?  My days are seriously running together.)

Vince, as far as I know, it IS Saturday! Of course, Monica and I being mostly-retired, every day is Friday after lunch!!🙃

 

Somewhere on the ship the sun is ALWAYS over the yardarm!! You may be face down in the bilge, but the sun will be over the yardarm!! I had a very simple philosophy, way back when, when it came to drinking. I only drank on days that ended in "y"!! 😁

In the year 2020, any/all rules are tossed out the window! 

 

The only way I can differentiate weekdays from weekends is CNBC runs prison shows instead of strategists forecasting market ups, downs, sideways, backwards and somersaults! 😱

 

And on that note, I see it’s now 5:15 here in California. And we all know what that means..... 🍸

As one of my late uncles used to say, come 5:00 PM at the cottage, while banging on a pot with a wooden spoon, .............

 

PARTY TIME!!!!!!

Does anyone have any interest in playing "Name that location", from a past Crystal cruise? Many of you have been all around the world and I think it would be fun to see if people could guess/recognize where pictures were taken?

I've retrieved the food processor from the basement.  Look out world.

 

In somewhat related news,  "King Arthur Flour" has rebranded as "King Arthur Baking Company."  I am at the point in the stay at home protocol where I find this rather exciting.

You can blame me for that. I tagged him to play 10 travel photos in 10 days and he's an over achiever.

 

At almost 80 days now I'd say that was an understatement!!!!! 😀😀
