So Monday the first full day at sea and my iPhone was stolen. So the following pics were taken in Key West with my iPad today The rest will have to come later. Princess will have to upload the photos of all of us from dinner the first night.
I hope you have a trickle charger for the Silver Wing Tom. I'm riding mine to work a couple of days a week. Three if I'm lucky. Yes I do have automatic iCloud backups. The weird thing is that iPhone 6 can't be re-activated or "wiped" if it's stolen. The serial number is encripted so the device is useless. I locked it and wiped it. I can listen to voicemail and call from Bones' phone. But, hey, I'm on vacay!
I'm on the TT cruise at this writing, and we are having our first Port Day in Key West. Unhappily, while working out in the gym yesterday, I left my iPhone unattended for a few minutes and it was stolen. So. No phone. Phht.
Sleep is overrated. I struggle with sleeping most nights. No pain for me. My brain just won't turn off.
It's not that I'm particularly worried either. Sometimes maybe, but no more that most people, I think.
It's just my brain gets in a particular thought pattern and it races. It's almost like thumbing thru a deck of cards - each a particular thought, a process, a problem, a strategy, a person, or something - but at lightning speed. To sleep, I have to intentionally find a way to slow it down by finding a 'quiet place' mentally.
OK 10:30pm and I'm all packed. We depart at 10am and will be boarding just about 12:30pm. Empress Deck 7303.
It's funny we paid for the cruise a year ago and every few months they would offer us an upgrade - for a small fee of course. Well the offered us another one in August - balcony suite. So I was looking at the other rooms on the ship and "Holy Macaroli!" It's the largest room on the ship (I think anyway). About the size of Bone's closet here on the lake.
I hope the dinner went well. Ninfa's is a great Tex-Mex spot. It is very far from Lake Conroe and also the evening we are packing. I will get a chance to meet you tomorrow in Galveston however. I look forward to that.
It's good to be back. Yes there is a TT cruise. It's been planned for a year now. Departs Galveston, headed to Key West and the Bahamas. 7 days. I'm now packed and ready. Thanks to both of you for your friendship over the years.
Im still around. Sorry all. I took a few months hiatus. Im still alive and kicking
Going on the TT cruise Beginning Sunday the 13th.
No good excuse for being gone that anyone wants to hear.
Mostly its about my business being very good despite the downturn in the oil industry.
But I guess I will be meeting some of you this coming week. Looking forward to it.
