Final night of vacation, but the time away felt about right

Passing close enough to a container ship in the Atlantic to read containers

The blog is missing a few days in posting due to a shortage of Internet minutes while on the cruise ship ($$$) and although there have been a few connections (very few public ‘free’) along the voyage, I’ve spent more time enjoying the vacation than updating my blog. That’s not to say that I’ve not typed a few thoughts to a Word doc and copied a few photos from my Canon XTi SLR camera, but I’ll just wait for home to archive them for posterity.

Is the Safe Locked

There have been a few moments along the way that seem to stand out … and one such moment is my “Is the safe locked?” question as we exit the cabin. Seems this will be remembered.  (could have easily picked the 14 days of wrong turns while following Katelyn and Brenda around the ship … but I wouldn’t dare mention that!)

We are spending our final night aboard ship over eating and enjoying a final show and mandatory family game of Rummy (we’ve had fun with this). While the girls are out and our bags are packed and outside our door, I thought I would use up the few last prepaid minutes with this post … sort of saved a few back for Katelyn to check her email and Facebook, but she was fine not logging in; must be nice not to be overly addicted to online services?

  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
