Carnival Cruise

Last month, Jamie and I and the Usual Suspects embarked on a cruise.

Now let me go ahead and disappoint you. For faithful Ford Readers, I rarely hold back anything. However, my better judgment will not a allow me to posts any quotes from our trip. Sorry, it just ain't gonna happen. I'm sure a couple of you are thinking, "Michael, you aren't foolin' me. There were no quotes." Let my response be firm and lucid: Do not decieve yourselves. We were birthing quotes like a Medicaid momma births babies. Quotes abounded from every orifice, and frankly, that's why I'm not posting any. Well, how about three?
  • "Hey look, it's Funship Freddie!"
  • "That's what got us in this situation."
  • "I knock down a couple of drinks of the day, and the next thing you know, I'm on the Lido deck doing the Cupid Shuffle."
Actually, I just made up the third quote, but it would have been a good one had I (or one of the Usual Suspects) said it.

Overall, our cruise was a grand success. While life afloat is delightful at the end of the day, it's always good to be back home. Worries and stress, we permanently declare: bon voyage!

And Speaking of Trash...

And speaking of trash, do you think that the garbage man thought Sanford and Son had set up shop at our house when they stopped by to dispose of our garbage?


After work one day, I walk in my kitchen and find the above scene. I ask Jamie, "How did that get there?" She responds, "I don't know."

Translation: take the trash out you, bum!
