Resisting the delicious latte is also challenging but I'm staying firm on avoiding anything that could be construed as acidic for my still delicate digestive tract. I faltered yesterday when I ate sauteed green peppers as a side to my scrambled eggs paying the price for the remainder of the day and night. No more peppers for me, especially the less ripened green variety. I learn as I go.

1. The return of the "year ago photo" after finding a suitable workaround. Over the next few days, I'll be updating the previous posts with this feature.
2. So far, we've had an excellent response to our invitation to the "Readers Meet & Greet" we'll be holding in Minneapolis on June 9th close to Highways 394 and 494. If you'd like to attend please RSVP by email, comments or Facebook.

4. Thanks to all our of new readers who stopped by to read yesterday's tribute to our friend Glenn who passed away a few days ago. And of course, our love and continuing prayers for Staci, Glenn's wife who supported and greatly appreciated the posting of the story.

5. Cruising activities tend to be repetitive. We're continuing to visit as many ports of call as possible to keep our readers engaged as we make our way across the sea. Please hang in there with us as we continue with the remaining 19 nights aboard this ship.6. If you've posted a comment at the end of any day's post and haven't seen a reply from us, please bear with us. The slow Wi-Fi has prevented us from replying to comments. I'm hoping to discover a workaround for that feature as well.

May your day be filled with ease and comfort.
Last year at this time, we were on Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas. This is the Flowrider on that ship. Later we'll post a photo of the same event on this ship. For more details, please click here.
