Banned from Target

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target.

Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse.

Hawaii Cruise

Well, I've been itching for another cruise ever since we got off the Carnival Glory after the bloggers cruise. I've been talking to Zane about going to Hawaii. Fifteen nights of cruising. So I emailed our personal vacation planner Edward Garcia and within a few minutes he called me to sort out the details. Hubby said okay, so we are heading to San Diego January 19th, 2012 and set sail on January 20th for a cruise to Hawaii on Carnival Spirit. I can't tell you how excited I am.

Sex and...

For all my grammatically correct friends.

On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife. The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.

Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday (WW) is a visual blogosphere phenomenon. Whereas blogs (web journals) are primarily about "words" bloggers love to dress their journal entries with imagery. WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.

The Genie

A modern day cowboy has spent many days crossing the Texas plains without water. His horse has already died of thirst. He's crawling through the sand, certain that he has breathed his last breath, when all of a sudden he sees an object sticking out of the sand several yards ahead of him.

The Birthday Gift...

A fellow was talking to his buddy, and he said, “I don’t know what to get my wife for her birthday. She has everything, and besides, she can afford to buy anything she wants, so I’m stumped.”

His buddy said, “I have an idea, why don’t you make up a certificate that says she can have two hours of great sex, any way she wants it. She’ll probably be thrilled!!!”

My New Supermarket

My new Supermarket near our house has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

When you approach the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and witness the scent of fresh hay.

The Cow

The only cow in a small town in Alberta stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found they could buy a cow from Saskatchewan for $200.

So they bought the cow from Saskatchewan and the cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all of the time, and the people were pleased and very happy. They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow and produce more cows like it. They would never have to worry about their milk supply again.

Irish Christening

Patrick's pregnant sister was in a terrible car accident and went into a deep coma. After being in the coma for nearly six months, she wakes up and sees that she is no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby.

The doctor replies, 'Ma'am, you had twins ... a boy and a girl. The babies are fine, however, they were poorly at birth, and had to be christened immediately so your brother Patrick came in and named them.

Where to Retire

You can retire to Phoenix, Arizona where...

You are willing to park 3 blocks away because you found shade.

You've experienced condensation on your bottom from the hot water in the toilet bowl.

The Test

A man walks into a bar, notices a very large jar on the counter, and sees that it's filled to the brim with $10 bills. He guesses there must be at least ten thousand dollars in it. He approaches the bartender and asks, "What's with the money in the jar?"

"Well..., you pay $10, and if you pass three tests, you get all the money in the jar and the keys to a brand new Lexus."

Comment Issue

I've had several people let me know that they couldn't see and/or find my 'post a comment' link. My hubby couldn't see the link either. I've spent a great deal of time redoing the comment section in HTML and when I open my blog on hubbies computer I can see the link. If those of you that couldn't see or find the 'post a comment' link would please check to see if it is there now. I would appreciate it very much. I just love this layout and am hoping that I corrected this issue.

Blogger's Cruise - X

We were off the ship first thing in the morning and bid Sarge Charlie and Empress Bee goodbye along with hugs and kisses at the baggage area and were in a cab and back to the hotel before 9:00 in the morning. I'm telling you VIP is the way to get on the ship and the way to get off too. Outstanding.

Blogger's Cruise - IX

Today is a sea day as we head back to Miami. Our cruise is coming to an end and I'm not happy about it.

We've had a terrific time and have enjoyed the many functions, and all the islands.

John Heald

Carnival Cruise Lines Senior Cruise Director John Heald entertained all us bloggers all week long.

There were so many events that I'm sure that I forgot to mention one or two. He and his staff worked very hard to make sure we had a wonderful bloggers cruise.

Sarge Charlie...

Sarge Charlie performed several magic tricks for us during our cruise and this one is my favorite. I just love Sarge Charlie and Empress Bee. They made our cruise such a delightful time. Thank you for all the things you did for us. It was greatly appreciated.

Blogger's Cruise VIII

We are up, showered and ready for the day in Grand Turk.

We've been looking forward to visiting this island for months. I'm on the balcony and hubby has to take a picture.

Blogger's Cruise - VII

San Juan is a gorgeous city filled with color and the hustle and bustle of folks at work.

We went into lots of different shops and I finally found a couple of t-shirts that I just had to have.

St. Thomas

It's getting late so we head back to the ship and decide to drop off our purchases and of course I can't help going back out on the balcony. That's when we notice the helicopter on top of this vessel. Now that's pretty awesome if you ask me.

Bloggers Cruise - V

St. Thomas was our favorite island. From our first look right through the day we loved everything about St. Thomas.

It was warm, the water was a beautiful blue and everyone seemed to be smiling. Zane and I spent very little time on the ship and found our way onto the island early.

Bloggers Cruise - IV

Wednesday morning finds us in St. Thomas. It's a beautiful island and we are eager to explore. We see the superyacht Cakewalk and our curiosity is piqued. So today I will share the following video to allow you to take a closer look at this magnificent vessel.

A woman sought the advice of a sex therapist, confiding that she found it increasingly difficult to find a man who could satisfy her, and that it was very wearisome getting in and out of all these short term relationships.

Comment Game

It's time to play the comment game again. We are off to the boat for our St. Patrick's Day yacht club event.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

Bloggers Cruise - III

Today is a fun day at sea, but there isn't time to goof off and just relax. There is so much to do today. The first and most important thing we did this day was stuff teddy bears for St. Jude's.

Bloggers Cruise - II

Finally this ship is moving and we are enjoying viewing Miami as we slowly make our way out of the harbor.

To say that this is exciting is an understatement.

Bloggers Cruise - I

Our long awaited cruise finally took shape on Friday, February 25th when we made our way to Sacramento to have dinner with friends before we turned in early. We went to the Virgin Sturgeon in Sacramento.

Heading Home

We fly out of Miami, Florida this morning at 8:15am and head to Seattle Tacoma International Airport in Seattle, Washington. We have a three hour layover (enough time for a long lunch) and then we head to Sacramento International Airport and then a short drive home.

Carnival - Day VIII

Today we return to the Port of Miami and bid all our blogging buddies goodbye. Hubby and I decided that we wanted to stay one more night in Miami and do a little sightseeing. We aren't going to go far, but across the street from our hotel there is place called Bayside Marketplace.

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Carnival - Day VII

Today is another Fun Day at Sea and we are heading back to Miami. Although all these posts have been set to post prior to our leaving home, I'm sure that we are having the time of our lives. I'll have pictures and lots of memories to share once we get home and settled.

Carnival - Day VI

Grand Turk - The beautiful Island of Grand Turk is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos. Take the time to explore Cockburn town’s wonderful selection of historical buildings including many Bermudian and Colonial style buildings and ruins. That’s just the beginning of all the things to see and do in Grand Turk. And now, as part of a $5 million renovation to the island, the one-of-a-kind Grand Turk Cruise Center features the FlowRider, an artificial wave created for both body boarding and stand-up surfing.

Carnival - Day V

San Juan, Puerto Rico - Historic San Juan, once nothing more than cobblestone streets and the distinctive architecture of the Spanish who founded it, is now a modern world capital. Among the peaceful shaded courtyards and commanding colonial fortresses of El Morro and San Cristobal, you'll find a cosmopolitan city of wide boulevards, lively cafes, highly regarded galleries and designer boutiques.

Carnival - Day IV

St. Thomas, USVI - Only 32 square miles in size, pirates once roamed the alleys of this beautiful place, which now host a treasure trove of stores. But there’s more to this shopper’s Shangri-la than an international grab bag of perfume and electronics. This U.S. Virgin Island also claims one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, heart-shaped Magens Bay; a world-renowned golf course; and spectacular nightlife. You can don a snorkel to explore coral reefs bright as a wildflower meadow, or take in the amazing views on a soaring aerial tram ride to Paradise Point.

Carnival - Day III

Today is a Fun Day at Sea...we are headed to St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands. I'm having a cocktail and enjoying the view. Hubby is really interested in this Fun Day at Sea and if he likes this cruise he wants to cruise to Hawaii from San Francisco or Los Angeles. Please make him love this cruise.

Have a terrific day everyone.
