Hey, I was on a cruise on our first anniversary. Hit the beach in Saros Bay Turkey.
(This pic from that cruise, my first time in Athens, I was a marine. This is atop the Acropolis, that is the Parthenon in the back ground. TL is Virgil Jenson (Iowa), Me, Cannot remember him and Pfc Torrence in front.)
(This is the next time on the Acropolis, but this time as a Sailor. This picture is about 50’ from the one above. Over looking Athens, Where Robert lives and teaches)
(Mel of “honey I’m Home” fame was just in a wedding where the groom wore dress blues, brought back a lot of memories, I too, wore my dress blues, and instead of the traditional ‘I do’ When Justice Nunn asked did I take this woman for my wife, I said smartly, ‘YES SIR’, my girl took my lead and also answered ‘Yes sir’, just not quiet as loud, LOL)
Sailed the Atlantic three or four times, even sailed in the Caribbean on Uncle Sam’s dime. All those were without my sweet heart. A couple years ago the church got a small cruise group up and we took a four night cruise. We enjoyed the shipboard activities (ALL OF THEM), I mean especially the shows and evening walks about the deck.
There was lots of good food and I love the sea at night. That was the first time I was able to hold my lover and watcher the moon reflect off the waves. Man it is a whole lot different than listening to a recorded letter as I had many times. Whoa, much better!
Thanks for the folk who gave advice Ken mentioned the Mayan ruins, we will try that tour, it is sight seeing. We won’t do any snorkeling, we had years of that in Cuba and Key West. I love it and it is beautiful, but can be dangerous for a deaf person, cannot hear any warnings, you know like: “SHARK”. Wouldn’t want to miss that!
The anniversary and cruise isn’t until Sept, but something's you have to schedule in advance.
Oh we had a bad storm here today, lots of rain and our little stream tripled in size. Wind isn’t a problem here in the valley too much wind break.
We are enjoying sitting around; planning and reminiscing. Having a hearing problem brought me in contact with a great lady some of you know, Ora of Kentucky.
(If you are familiar with Kentucky horses, you will remember Man-o-War, he has his own boulevard.)
Ora is a lucky lady, she is married to a retired Army Chaplain. She entertained us with some of her adventures and misadventures of military travel and foreign bases on her blog.
We met Ora and I learned a lot about Cochlea Implants. The Chaplain smiled a lot, I think he is giving her a chance to talk, since he has retired from it. LOL
Chaplain Mixon is a great guy, I can see why he was a successful chaplain. I learned a chaplain, like a pastor must have a strong wife, Ora fit the bill. You would never know she has a hearing problem.
Two more folks we have met thru the net. We are richer for it. Thanks for coming this way.
A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention! It never fails.)
This is a 1948 Chevy woodie. Never saw one. This was sent to me by my Great grandma in law, Joan in Utah. She is Elsie’s ‘nother Great Grandma. haha! Thanks Joan, I got them all, thanks.
