I swear on a stack of Bibles that when I selected this deckchair, put my towel down, got my book out, and took my first sip of iced tea, there was no one in my vicinity. You've gotta believe me on this one. Sometimes my friends don't believe me, but most days life comes to me. I don't go looking for trouble or other daily highlights. They head my way. They just roll my way. As was the case this morning. The day turned quite hot, under the summer Caribbean sun so a few iced teas and other beverages were on the menu. I don't know what the secret is, but even Elenka has no problem with a pina colada before noon when she's on one of these ships. It is vacation you know! But I really must say, there are a quite a few distractions around this ship. Good grief! The last time we cruised, John Irving's Last Night in Twisted River kept me out of trouble. This time I took on In One Person. I guess you could say, for some reason, I just need to always keep one foot in Vermont or at least New England on my sojourns away. And I just really like his books! So, I'll end today with this simple editorial comment on today's image: Is it LIVE, or is it Memorex? What do you think? I thought I knew. Now, after closer examination... not so sure.
