Well, the next cruise is on! I'll be getting my Covid test on Saturday Dec 18th, meeting with my new pet sitter Molly who has agreed to do twice daily Piper visits for nine days, and then driving to Pensacola.

It also looks like I may have a hot date! Shelby's friend Jill has expressed an interest in hanging out with us!

I'll spend the night at Shelby and Andy's place and then we'll all drive to Port Canaveral, FL (a 7.5 hour drive) for boarding on the Carnival Magic.

It's a seven day cruise with stops in Costa Maya, Roatan, Belize and Cozumel. Saturday (Christmas) we'll be at sea heading back to port, should be amazing! Sunday we'll drive back to Pensacola and I'll be home on Monday the 27th.

I've got six weeks to get myself in top shape (I'm pretty much there now) and then let it all go to hell with food, drink and fun. Life is short, live it!
