Mom in hot tub

Mom in hot tub

On our last day at sea, we sat in the hot tub talking with a man who was enjoying his fourth mimosa of the day—and it wasn’t even 10 A.M. He told us that he had taken The Ultimate Beverage Package as a perk and was enjoying the free drinks. According to his calculations, he and his wife had consumed more than 140 drinks and there was still a day to go. There is no way I could consume enough liquor in a day to make that package worth my while.

Though there were lots of activities on board the ship, mom and I just enjoyed the Atlantic serenity from our balcony. Mom treated herself to a banana split for lunch and amazingly ate it all. For such a tiny person, she eats a lot. I hope that when I am her age I am just as spry and full of gusto for life as she is.

Though mom did not take any excursions, she did enjoy playing the slot machines. She found one, Catch the Fever, that she enjoyed. Whenever she rolled three or more Fever symbols, the game went into an automatic six-spin cycle. She would giggle as the money piled up.
