OK, I admit it. That cruise has made me want to do it as a way of life! No, that's not possible, being on disability and a VERY limited income. Good thing my expenses are quite low. With some judicious saving, I think I could go at least twice a year, especially if I chose very wisely. Too bad Margie has been to most of the places I probably want to go--some of them several times! But there's lots to do no matter where you go, I think. Aiming for one that goes to Key West, Nassau and Freeport. Don't have to go all the way to Miami for that.

Alison was kind enough to buy the picture taken of her, me and Margie the second formal night. I get the 8x10 and have a 5x7 to give Margie. I think we all look pretty good, except I look fatter than I'd like. I'll see about scanning it or something so I can post it. My knowledge of this is very limited, but someone should be able to help me. I hear SIL's bridge partner has emailed some pictures but Alison has to join something to get them. I don't think I'm in many of them, but there is the one of those who climbed the falls. Bet I'm a sight in that one!

Neck's still not what it should be. I'm wondering if seeing an MD would help at all. Maybe some muscle relaxants or something, though I hate taking drugs. It might just continue to get better. I'm somewhat amused that I'm the only family member who didn't get sick on the cruise. I wonder if I have some of my many supplements to thank for this. It would be nice to know what's working. It's looking like Alison may need to see a doctor. Hope she's recovered before her surgery next week.

Time to get off the computer and get ready for sleep. Good night!

    Linda, I think Kate has the right idea...get thee to a Chiro...(ask around for a recommendation!) they usually can get you "straightened out" in a few sessions .(Usually cheaper than going to a specialist!!!)

    Hope you get some relief soon...

    I have had friends who came back from the first cruise and immediately wanted to go back. It sounds like it would be a great adventure.

    My upper back has been bothering me for quite some time now, on just one side. I hope you and Allison feel better soon.

    Welcome back! Good to hear you enjoyed yourself in spite of your neck pain. It could have put a damper on your enjoyment but it looks like you got through it to have a good time. An appointment with an MD can't hurt and if you can take meds to get you through the healing process. Have you considered a Chiropractor? Sometimes an alignment can help. I look forward to viewing pics of your vacation. Get well soon!
