And something occurred to me when I was on fb this morning and I was looking at the 70K 2012 pictures I have posted there. Because there are now 2 cruises that are splitting some of the “alumni” group up, as well as some of us who are skipping both Barge and 70K 2013, I wonder when and if this particular group of people in the two pictures below (as well as many other pictures I have) will ever be all together again! Makes me think of an old song by Seals and Crofts called We May Never Pass This Way Again. *sniff* (but then again, do I really want or need to see Kevin again?? )
Walter, (Australia) Rachael, me, Margie, and you know who.
Margie, Marlo, and Rob
These pictures crack me up because they remind me of summer camp when you visited your friends' cabins.
Just to inform you guys, for those who don't have me on Facebook (or do not use Facebook). I'm still alive and kicking. (even though some recent photos of a zombie run might indicate something else )
Yes I haven't been much active on here for several reason. Mostly the fact that I have with every forum...I can't handle the amount of information that has been posted after a good night sleep or a day at work!!!
Secondly, as Laura stated that some of us might have their thought about which cruise to join. Or not join at all.
For me, sad to say, I'm skipping Barge and 70k ToM for at least a year. Doing a cruise and a flight from Europe to USA every year is cutting in the budget. But also in the days off that I need to take. Which I need now more then ever as my girlfriend, as some know, lives in a different country then I do.
So no cruise for me at the end of this year or at the beginning of the new year...but that doesn't mean I will forget those precious moments we all had in 2011 and 2012 and long for more of them in the distant future!
Sharing beerbuckets, passing packages with stroopwafels from cruiser to cruiser, taking 20 mins to get to the toilet as you bump into a friend every 10 meters, elevator moshpits, crashing cabins of fellow cruisers, pranknotes and calls...the list goes on and on...
I may not show my face around here as much as I used to do...that doesn't mean you are forgotten.
If you miss me...you know where to find me on FB...either to spam me a large private message about how life is, a casual "hi-how-are-you-doing"-post, a poke...or maybe just to lurk on my whacky life...
