There are just 47 days left to get ready for our China cruise. I thought we were ready two weeks ago, but Yuki keeps on finding things that she wants to arrange. I say, go for the cheese, gal!
The studio has 17 students now and that, coupled with the ten regular gigs I play plus choir and church council, has me running pretty much all the time.
Andi, the cruise (on, as Jan so aptly put it, the Anthem of The River) now looms large on the horizon. I didn't mean to jump on upcoming cruising plans for 2020 - I'm still fine with doing the Adriatic in 2021 (more time to save up for it!) I think the Viking river boats are taking an ancient viking stance toward the competition, and figuring to ram any boat on the river with the wrong marque. I'm not too worried about the problem on the ocean cruiser, since we have done so many RC cruises, and their record is not stellar, either. In any event, nobody can possibly catch up to Carnival when it comes to cruising mishaps...
Shari, my church is still praying for your total recovery (and that you'll follow doctor's orders!!!) You have a small army out here cheering for you.
Jan, if I wanted to eliminate all worries about incidents at sea, I woldn't cruise at all. All lines experience problems (although it seems like the low-cost lines experience more - then again, they have more ships!) Anyway, I'm not likely to curtail my cruising because my favorite line has a .01% rate of at-sea incidents!! I've put away the sneau blower, which is not just wishful thinking. I do believe we've seen the last of the below-thirty degree days here on the Shore. How's it looking up there in New Inkland?
Miranda, it's nice to know that you're totally back in place, keeping the Continent from falling apart (the Brits, well, that's another question.)
Jackie, it looks like clear weather in the east, at least until mid-summer. Here, we get about six days of spring. How does it fit together in the Sunshine State?
I have a few chores to do before the onslaught of students starting at 4:00, so I'd better get to it...
Have A Great Day, Crazies!
