Himself: Probation ends on Monday. We think they will keep him.
Herself: with the quilt blog too: Threw sweats over my night shirt to dash down and get the photos, but don’t tell anyone. Finished scanning Gunny’s book, and finished putting together the poems for the Poetry Society of America’s Annual Awards. Leftovers for dinner, and they were incredibly good.
My Babylonian Captivity: Chapter November 1 through November 7: Do stop in and read Tugster's experience as a human shield. He writes that, “ i was captured in kuwait (where i was teaching in the kuwaiti air force)….”
By the second day of no power, no hot food, and no toilets that flushed, Carnival opened the bars. The beers were warm, but no one cared.
The Mexican tug, SMBC Monterrey , took the Splendor in tow, and yesterday they arrived safely in San Diego to discharge their passengers just as the Veterans Day Parade began right in front of them. Most passengers, as reported by the San Diego Union Tribune, will enthusiastically take the free cruise Carnival offered. Only a minority will never take a cruise again.
Maritime Matters has a day by day log of the cruise that went nowhere, and Tugster offers closeup photos and names of the tugs that brought the ship to San Diego. The commentary and notes on Maritime Matters bring the two year old ships story of misfortune to light. Tugster’s latest post scoops even the national news with his detailed coverage.
