I realize I’m a day late in posting my final thoughts on our trip. I’m probably a dollar short, too. Better late than never, I suppose. I have no idea why I just used two idioms in the span of three sentences. Probably boatlag. Okay. Cruise. Final thoughts. Leigh and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, […]

Last Day Blues

Today was our last day of the cruise. We should arrive in Galveston sometime tomorrow morning around 6:30, and hopefully we’ll be able to get off the ship and through customs before 8:00AM. I’ll post final thoughts about the cruise tomorrow night. To be concluded…

Tulum And More Dumbass Americans

Still cruisin’, but we only have one more full day at sea. We dock at Galveston on Sunday. This will be a relatively short post because I haven’t showered yet, we have dinner in an hour, and frankly, I’m freaking exhausted. We arrived at Cozumel this morning around 9:30. Leigh and I had booked an […]

Grand Cayman and Dumbass Americans

Still cruisin’, cruisin’, cruisin’. We spent all day yesterday in Jamaica, and we arrived at Grand Cayman this morning around seven o’clock. Since a coral reef surrounds the Grand Cayman Island, large cruise ships cannot dock at the port. We dropped anchor in the middle of the bay, approximately half a mile from the dock, […]

Burned Feet and Hairy Backs

I believe I made mention in the last post of a hairy, middle-eastern man who was shedding in the swimming pools. Well, this afternoon Carnival held a […]

Bon Voyage

This afternoon at 4:00, Leigh and I departed from Galveston, Texas on the Carnival cruise ship The Conquest. As I’m writing this, we’re in the Gulf of Mexico, several hundred miles from Galveston. On Wednesday, we’ll make a stop in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This is our first cruise, and it’s a little odd. Neither of […]

Ellie is looking for a Valentine’s Day date. She’s got stuffed animals, wine, and a lovely red rose to present to her suitor. Any takers?

It’s A Dirty Job But Someone’s Gotta Do It

As an instructor, I’m going to go ahead and admit something that a lot of folks in the education system don’t have the courage to come out and say: Not everyone needs to go to college. There. I said it. For some reason we, the American society, have venerated collegiate life and devalued more traditional […]
