Crazy Cruise III... day 2

We arrived in Nassau at dawn. Beautiful day; 80 degrees and light, warm breeze. I got off the ship and walked around in the shops downtown. I got back and thought about all the things to do on the ship today, but alas nothing was open. No zipline, no flow rider or rock wall. Disappointing. So I sat around the pool for a while and looked after my nephew and had a couple three or four cocktails. In the afternoon, a bunch of Dolphin fans took over an English themed pub called the Bow and Stern. 80 person capacity and there were about 150 of us in there swinging from the rafters. Place came unglued when we won in OT. Good times.
Hitting the casino again tonight to try my luck.

Crazy Cruise III day one...

Hello everyone. I'm sitting here in my stateroom after a so-so day. Forgot my Passport. Had to go back home to get it. Thank God I live here at the ships home port. Got on board and within the first hour I lost my pinkie ring. Slipped right off. I come here to gamble and these are not harbingers of good things to come.
Thankfully, I was wrong. I hit the casino and on my first $20 I was already ahead a bunch. Played all night and walked out even.
Still pissed about my ring, though.
This ship is huge. It's easy to get turned around and the layout sometimes makes it hard to get across the ship's beam. I'm sure it'll get easier.

We'll be arriving in Nassau in the morning. Only staying until about 2:00pm and then we steam for St.Thomas, USVI.
I'll get some pics uploaded tomorrow.
G'night y'all.

It's Time! Crazy Cruise III...

We'll be travelling on the Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas leaving from Fort Lauderdale, Fl. on Friday. If I'm not too busy, I'll be posting daily briefs of my trip. I hope you all enjoy it.

It's a great day!

I just got a voicemail that cracked me up...

My buddy, Squeaky and I met back in 1997 when we were building the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
He lives in Augusta, Ga. and he came down here to So. Fla. for my 50th birthday. We hadn't seen each other in about 5 years and it was great to see him again.
While he was here I told him about the Cruise I'm going on in December and suggested he join me. I told him I could get him a stateroom at my cost and we could could have a great vacation together. It took him a coupla months, but he finally pulled the trigger and paid the $459 for his room.
Last weekend I get a voicemail from him. He's about three drinks into a bottle of Scotch and decided to call me.
"Hey man, I juss wanid t'say thanks for tawkin me into this trip man. This is gonna be a great time I jus' know it. I... I jus' wanid to say, well,... I love you, man. No, rilly I love ya. Ima have a drink in your honor. And this is why...coz I love you maaaannnn."
I can't wait til December.

Had a close call at work...

I'm an electrician. I was hooking up the main feeds that come from the utility transformer to the main switch for all of the buildings power. It's a part of my job that I really enjoy.
I had just finished terminating that last of 24 wires that have the diameter of a quarter into its lug on the switch when I noticed it was near quitting time. I got up off my bucket and walked thirty feet to my blueprint table and was filling out time cards for my temporary help. I was chatting with the guys when suddenly a bolt of lightning entered through the doorway and struck one of the girders holding up the roof- right where I was sitting not two minutes before. The crack of the lightning sounded like a grenade and the smoke and dust it caused made me think my switchgear exploded.
Everything was fine. No damage to the equipment.
But.. I was just sitting where that lightning bolt just hit. Had I not checked my watch and got up off that bucket I think I would have been killed.
