Some months ago, my mother bemoaned the fact her traveling days were over. My father isn’t in the best of health and likes to stay close to home. He’s not very fond of boats (he gets seasick) or crowds. But my mother has always wanted to go on a cruise. So, I said I’d go with her. We chose a short cruise, one of those hops from Miami to Key West, then on to Cancun and back. Four days only. Long enough to see some things but not wear her out completely, and not so long dad would pine.
On Sunday, we’ll fly to Miami, stay the night, and on Monday, we’ll board the cruise ship. I have guests lined up to entertain you while I’m gone, and I have some pre-posted contests to celebrate the release of Texas Surrender, which happens on December 4th while I’m gone, so you still have plenty of reasons to stop in every day.
So answer me this: Have you ever been on a cruise? Is there somewhere you’re dying to sail?
