This Blog Is On Vacation

After 199 consecutive posts, which began April 4, I’m taking time off for my summer vacation. Yeah, "summer vacation." With me, that’s a concept and not a specific time.

"Vacation" means something like "vacate," which is exactly what I will do. When the bus door closes, I put everything local out of my mind. There is nothing I can do about anything, so why bother thinking about it?

The radio program is in the expert hands of broadcast pro Sue Henry; she’s done this before and knows how to read the newspaper for the blind and homebound. My day job will be there and what I did not get done will be waiting for me. Maybe I’ll write my weekly newspaper column from the island of Domenica and e-mail it in; that would be neat. We’re doing a competitive miles-walked thing here and the weekly reporting day will be when I am at St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; I'll send in my miles from there.

If you wish to follow my adventures, my online diary (not terribly serious and not always meant to be taken literally) is at:

Click on "Live from the Noordam – Carib." Alternate sub-title will be "The Po' Sidin’ Adventure," in case someone else snags my first choice.

We’ll see you here around Oct. 25 or 26.

Enjoy the sun, the ship and salt air. I'll enjoy reading your adventures - I always do. Bon Voyage, my friend!

The blogger who leaves his grotto once a year, lifting anchor and using a Martz to hit a gangway, has done it again.

Hey TOM..........go for it. The Carib is awesome and much to see and hear. My favourite place was St. Thomas, followed by Montego Bay. Did 16 trips down there.....
USS Gyattdam, USS Damatodam and the USS Sampsondam.
