ok, so we’re on the Disney Magic, having a magical time. we’ve just arrived back in our room after dinner at Palo, the super-fancy restaurant on the ship, and i notice there’s a message on our phone. so Frank plays it on speaker phone, and i hear this:
FRANKIE’S MOM: Hi Frankie and SarahK. Frankie, it’s your mom. I saw your rash on the internet–
ok, i just burst out laughing at this point, because i knew that this had to be the work of cadet happy. the message continues…
FRANKIE’S MOM: I hope it’s getting better and that it’s not keeping you guys from having a good time.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! i’m sooooo deducting the time for the phone call back to Frank’s mom from Kevin’s pay. that’s $14 just to say, “no, mom, i don’t have a rash. i suspect cadet happy.”
anyway, we’re having a wonderful time on our 7-night western Caribbean cruise. right now, pirates are attacking the ship (no kidding), we have a monkey made of towels hanging from our verandah curtains.
today we were in Costa Maya, and Frank got his “Man With No Name” poncho, and i bought a $40 vase that would have been $20 at Hobby Lobby on a half-off sale, but i wouldn’t be able to say i bought it in Mexico. we also watched Chronicles of Narnia on the ship this afternoon.
yesterday we snorkeled with the stingrays in Grand Cayman. Frank even held one, and i petted it.
Monday we kayaked in Key West and had a great Sloppy Joe at Sloppy Joe’s. we also posed for pictures for this 3D cube, and we got that back tonight. so now our faces are laser-etched in glass cubes that we’re bringing home with us.
tomorrow we’re getting massages at sea, and tomorrow night is a semi-formal dinner (formal was Monday). we have great dinner mates. Phyllis and “Hank” are exactly the people we’ll be at their age (which is at least 10 years older than us), except that we’ll retire to Flagstaff instead of Maryland. and Will and Ashley are very nice, though i think i scare them with all my loudness. they’re freshly engaged.
we’ve been listening to Bobby Hamilton on the piano all week in this super-quiet lounge where kids are not allowed (yay!!!). right now we’re another place where kids aren’t allowed.
we’re on our honeymoon, so we’ve spent a lot of time in our room (bowchickabowwow).
we’re having so much fun. one more stop, the Bahamas, and then we’ll get to see how much of the house the kitties have destroyed while we’re gone. and we’ll get to see our karaoke machine again. oh yeah. we did karaoke one night too. we were good.
ok, my hubby is acting like i should stop spending $.75 / minute to blog, so i’ll talk to you musees in a few days. we’ll be home Saturday.
y’all be good.
