I have been in a sort of a bind with the family cruise, UNCERTAIN about three. To top it off the Utah phone was not in service when we tried to call.(As the time approaches, changes cost more)
I contacted the Maternal Grandma and she tried to contact him for me. She and I advertised on FAcebook.
(The last time together we all went to Utah, this time Utah is coming East)
Anyway he called. He had been ‘stressing’ on getting a passport. I had tried to explain we were covering all costs of the cruise including preparations. I explained a certified Birth Certificate was good. There has been a question whether his daughter Elsie Mae would be able to come.
He had a lot of hours in the air as a child, back and forth from Utah (but hates to fly). When Elsie said she would come if they flew, I loved his words in a text. He said, “Grandpa I will fly with Elsie, if anything happened to her, I would not want to live.” To tell the truth, I cried.
Anyway , Utah news GOOD! After that I stepped out and met Luke walking by the motor home. Luke was the other person in question, His college finals are the week of the cruise. He gave me the thumbs up, finals are arranged, I can go. So the original crew of 16 scheduled a year ago can make it. Good stuff.

So I checked the flights to Tampa, wanting a non-stop since Ben is not thrilled to be flying. None to TAmpa. BUT there is one from Salt Lake City to Orlando. Great. So my mind starts to ‘THINK’ again. Why not give Elsie & Ben a day at Disney.
Sherry says, it would be good if they had company. Okay so we will offer everyone (‘cept us) a day a Disney, If Ben and Elsie decide they want to.
Twas a good day. We will be missing the Oldest, Corey. He wasn’t available when I first planned the cruise, and I haven’t been able to contact him in time to get hi aboard or for his usual BD gift. Corey is a very smart guy, but a wanderer. Maybe next year.
(Corey as a kid and the illusive Corey grown. He went to work out in the oil fields for awhile.)
This will be everyone else, Sons, Grands and Greatgrands.
WE were going to do this next year on our 60th anniversary, but I thought anything can happen, lets do it a year early! SO IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL DO IT.
