Vacation update

I went on vacation. Took a ten day cruise and just got back.

1. Longer cruises have the advantage of very few kids. This is more than offset by the addition of geriatric customers. Imagine everything taking an hour or two longer to make time for all the people in walkers and scooters. Ships were not made for that. Boarding ramps are too steep. Hallways are too narrow.

2. The crew did an excellent job feeding me multiple times a day.

3. Private beaches in Aruba and curcoa were awesome. Warm, clear water and tropical beezes.

Above video was taken on my phone, in a zip lock bag.

4. I am happy to report that after crossing the entire gulf of Mexico and Caribean sea, I did not spot a single plastic straw floating in the water. We can call this one a success and have our straws back, please? I also did not find any floating garbage of any sort.

    lol!

    i think i’m the only one in my family (of origin) that has not been on a cruise and have no desire to do so. it seems … panicky to be stuck in the middle of the ocean with no way of getting off if you want to.

    anyway … glad you had a great time … and no plastic at sea! lol!

    and can’t comment on your welding post for some reason … but every time i see another construction post without a mcD’s cup i think you must be falling off the wagon! lol! seriously … you’ve got to leave at least one mcD’s cup between the walls for posterity … with the date written on it πŸ™‚

    oh, and very cool on the welding πŸ™‚

      Having spent eight years in the Navy, this is definitely not a phobia of mine. That being said, I haven’t been on a cruise since 1992 either. πŸ™‚

      I would think, however, that being stuck in a metal tube that is hurtling through the air at 30,000 feet and only being held up by two engines would be far more stressful. Or imagine being strapped into a small metal box and traveling 120 feet each and every second, never knowing when something might go wrong and crush you into a small messy cube …

        lol! very glad to know navy folks don’t have a phobia about being in a boat in the middle of the ocean! lol!

        but … since you’ve now ruled out air travel and car travel … hummm … horse and buggy? walking?

        ahhh … but you’d prefer motorcycles πŸ˜‰

        or we can all just stay home πŸ™‚

    Comment on “welder” article that comes next since comments seem to be disabled for that one.

    Buy the cheapest welder you can find. Check.

    Go out and buy really good quality feed wire from a welding store and put it in your cheap welder. It will give you a better weld. It will flow better and it will arc better.
