On a serious note -- Today is Election Day. I voted in our state's early voting campaign last week so I won't be voting today. I'm happy this is THE day. I'm disgusted with the vituperous, duplicitous, and purposefully misleading ads and mud-slinging from both sides. If this much time and effort was spent on real issues, rather than on whose yoohoo is longer, our country would be a lot better off! SHAME ON THEM ALL!! And shame on us for tolerating it.
You can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. This is my last posting about our Canada cruise! (I can feel that great wind a blowin' as I compose!! ☻)
Our last stop was Boston in which we did a quickie Olde Time Trolley tour and then, the important part, met with long time friends for lunch.
And then we left. I don't care how many times I've observed this -- it still fascinates me. Cruise ships can pull out of very tight spaces rather easily. This surprised me when I saw my first cruise ship deport in Key West several years ago. With thrusters, they just pull out sideways! Here we are pulling out of a tight 'parking space' -- surrounded by three other large ships.
