Wow yesterday was exhausting. We got home and I unpacked and had a great shower and had lunch with D#1 who was here for work and then she had to go so Kyle came over and we made biscuits and eggs and watched movies. 

My feet and ankles were so swollen from the salty food I ate on the ship that Kyle massaged them, iced them, put heat on them, massaged them again and today they are perfect. 

Today I am having lunch with the duck and D#1 and then she leaves town and we go grocery shopping. 

After that I think I might just hit the bed. This old woman is totally spent.

Miami!  It goes by so fast. I'm sure Paul is in his airplane heading this way and we will miss each other by a few hours. 


Friday, January 29, 2016

Secret:  you know the seas are rough when the swimming pool has white caps. 

Last day. It goes by so fast. The duck is out and about the ship and I am waiting for my room service. Do you think when I get home I could train the doormen to bring me coffee and a bagel?

Carnival piano bar greats, TC, piano bar Bob, party with Marty and everyone loves Ben. Huge crowds. Big fun. Mega talent. 

Paul when you go into the piano bar next week Ben will be there. Tell him you are a personal friend of mine. 

One day left, a sea day. I plan on sleeping in and having my breakfast on the balcony. Shocked?  Just because I do that every day? My favorite hour of the cruise day. 


The piano bar has been absolutely packed every night. If you want a seat you have to get there early. The comedy club too. I couldn't get in last night for either show. I really do like the smaller ships so much better. 

Chuck went ashore and I didn't. Surprised?  No?  Lol

I have phone service in Mexico with T-Mobile so I made some calls. Paul I tried to call you but it wouldn't let me call Canada. I was able to speak with D#1 and Kyle. 

So having a wonderful cruise because there is no bad cruise but doubt I'll cruise on this ship again. Too big. Too many people. 

Have a great day y'all. I will too for sure.

Well I'm in the cabin resting a bit before I go to the piano bar. The show 88 Keys was really good. It's not often I get to see a show I haven't seen before and I really enjoyed it. (Paul lots of flashing lights)

Later my loves...


This is as close as I got to Grand Cayman but I had a lovely day onboard. Tonight is the second of two formal nights. 

As we sailed away I sat on the balcony watching the water. I saw lots of flying fish. Sarge used to talk about seeing them but for a long time I didn't think they were real. 

Tonight we are going to see a new (to me) show called 88 Keys. Ben from the piano bar does the lead in.  

Tomorrow is Cozumel. I might get off the ship. Or not. Either way I'll have a great day. I hope you do too.

Sorry I'm having a good deal of difficulty with the Internet tonight. 

Well after yesterday's typo about dicking in Jamaica all I can think of to say is this photo is us pulling out of Jamaica. 


Sorry I completely forgot to post last night. I was asleep in less than a minute. 

Today we are dicked in Jamaica. I'm not going ashore, big shocker. The duck doesn't know yet if he's going or not. 

I am sitting on the balcony enjoying life. It's 80 degrees at 8:30. You know I live that!


Friday, January 22, 2016

Or in my case gin. The weather is just awful but at least it's not snow. I know some of you are getting hammered with that stuff. I'm afraid some of our cruise group won't be able to get their flights to the ship. I sure hope it's gone for Paul's cruise next week. 

Kyle and I didn't even have our Friday night date night tonight. His rib is bothering him a lot too. He said the sling helps some. 

Have a great weekend y'all and stay safe. 


Thursday, January 21, 2016

A full moon is coming soon. It used to bother me but I don't think it does any more. 

I have Andre' in the morning. And possibly dinner with Kyle if he is well enough. He woke up with a broken rib. No idea how it happened. Poor guy. 

Do you believe in physics?  I don't but Kyle says he has one that is real.  Have any of you had any experience with one?

Have a great day y'all. Me too. 


Wednesday, January 20, 2016

I signed up for this and I think a few of my friends might go too. It sounds interesting and I'm up for meeting new friends and Blue Martini is a wonderful place. 

No other news from me. Hope your Thursday is fabulous. I'll be in the card room downstairs hoping to win a dollar or two. 


Tuesday, January 19, 2016

So it's Tuesday and that means Mahjong tomorrow. It's my turn to host so I am making turkey hoagies with roasted red peppers on them and other veggies of course. 

I have most of the things gathered for the trip Sunday but it's too soon to put them in the suitcase so I'll so that Saturday. 

I had dinner with Ryan and Kyle tonight. Ryan has a new guy so he's been busy of late but we are still good friends and enjoy getting together. 

Have a great day y'all. I will too for sure. 


Monday, January 18, 2016

It was a beautiful day but cold. The high barely got into the 70's and you know me, way too cold. In fact the whole week is behaving like this or should I say misbehaving?

My suitcase is out and I'm getting ready to go on Sunday. 

Kyle came over tonight and we got some takeout and watched a movie. He was feeling much better. 

Have a great day y'all. I will too for sure. 


Sunday, January 17, 2016

Well I'm in cruise mode now. I printed my cruise documents today and that got me motivated. It's been way too long since I've been onboard a ship. 

I have Andre' in the morning and then I'm getting out the suitcase. 

Kyle is sick with a bad cold so I'm not getting anywhere near him. Not this close to cruise time. Nope. 

Have a great week y'all. I will too for sure!


Saturday, January 16, 2016

Well the speed dating was a bust but I had a blast. Fourteen women and one guy showed up. We got our money back but me and three of the women and the guy went to the bar and we ate and drank and became friends. 

Then there was a nut convention (really- a nut convention) so we crashed it. There were so many people no one had a clue so we had some more drinks and food and then went back to the bar. 

It was a lot of fun. I really only had two drinks, the rest of mine were water that looked like a cocktail. 



Off to the speed dating event. There are two groups. 30-49 and 50+. I'm in the early bird group. Stay tuned...

Friday, January 15, 2016

It's Barbie and Ken - Bee and Kyle. Monkey and all. How funny is that?

I had a great workout with Andre this morning and now I'm going to have a nap!


Thursday, January 14, 2016

So I had a surprise visit from Kyle tonight because he had to wait until Gennaro got off work to pick him up so we went and had some dinner. Better than sitting home alone by a long shot for sure. He is so sweet to me. 

Tax documents are rolling in now so it's getting to that time again. Blech. 

Have a great Friday y'all!  I will too for sure. But first I have Andre. 


Almost cruise time!  I am so ready. I don't usually wait this long between them and it's time to rock and roll. Did I mention this cruise is with a group from piano bars?  Best of the best coming with us. I am so excited about it. 

In other news on Saturday I am signed up for a "speed dating" session of over 50 age group. I have never done anything even remotely like this but what the heck. I think you get five minutes with each one and move to the next. I do not have any expectations going in but think it sounds like a way to kill a Saturday night and twenty bucks. Stay tuned.

Exciting news!

I had my nine month appointment with Dr. Pinsky this morning and he has patented some new products that will be available worldwide next month with a prescription. He says there has never been anything like these products before. They act as Botox and filler without injection. I am using them as of today and taking close ups of my skin with no makeup weekly. I'll keep you posted!


Sunday, January 10, 2016

Quiet day today. Breakfast with the duck and grocery shopping then home alone. It was a nice day actually. 

Tomorrow I have my nine month appointment with Dr. Pinsky, the plastic surgeon so I have moved Andre' to Tuesday this time. It worked out good because he had a Tuesday cancellation. 

Two weeks till cruise day!


Saturday, January 9, 2016

So Kyle had taken on Sarge's roll of embarrassing me now. For example today in the elevator it stopped and a guy I don't know got on and Kyle says with a totally straight face "I can't believe how flexible you are. How did you get your leg up on my shoulder?"  Another time he said "hurry up, we have to get out of these clothes". All the time now stuff like this. 

I have such a wonderful life. I hope you do too...


Friday, January 8, 2016

Friday night date night!  Dinner at Mohitos, ice cream at Sloans and now drinks at Roosters. Life is good. 


Friday night date night with Kyle. Dinner and drinks. I think his boyfriend Gennaro is coming too. Love both my guys. 

Andre' was here this morning kicking my (rather huge) butt. I'm exhausted. I'm going to have a shower and a nap. Have a great day!


Wednesday, January 6, 2016

So my hair turned out good and I got reelected to the board and now I'm the treasurer. 

It's been cool and rainy here so no pool but today I have canasta so that's good. Since the club had closed we take turns hosting the game and tomorrow is my turn. I provide the venue and snacks. 

Have a great day y'all. I will too for sure.

Sunday, January 3, 2016

Kyle and Gennaro were dancing and I snapped this photo of the happy couple. They came over and we got some takeout Thai food and watched two movies. A great evening!

I was asked what I got TVD for his birthday. I got him the new Bocceli CD since we are going to his show Valentines Day.  I love this one so much, it's show tunes. 

Have a lovely day y'all. I will too for sure!


Saturday, January 2, 2016

So it's 2016!  Today is TCD's birthday. 

Yesterday was a list day for me. I ached all over. I really didn't have but one drink at the party but I was so overtired I got achey snd just laid around most of the day. I did go to the pool for a while but didn't get in. Just too sore. 

I feel much better today but I'm still not doing much. I guess I'm older than I thought and not able to do all I have been able to in the past. Live and learn. 

Have a great day y'all. I will too for sure!
