    A few of you know that Ed & I are celebrating our 40th anniversary later this year. To commemorate it, we were looking for a special cruise to go on. We found it and have just returned. It was such a special, once-in-a-lifetime event, that I thought I would share a few pictures with you. I've posted them on my Profile page.

    First of all, we decided to spend a little money and go into the Queen's Grill on Cunard's Queen Victoria. (Cunard, as stuffy as it is, is our favorite cruise line, and the Queen's Grill is their first class accommodation.) A special offer came along that allowed us to book a Queen's Grill Suite, for 1/3 the normal price, with the promise of an automatic upgrade, if available. We booked...and three weeks later, we were advised of our upgrade...to the best suite on the ship! We felt as though we had won the lottery!

    We had planned to spend several days in London, before and after the cruise, and, when we arrived there was a screw-up in our reservations, so, to assuage our problem, the hotel upgraded us to the best suite in the hotel! While in London, we saw "Billy Elliot", "Wicked" and Queen's "We will Rock You"! We had a spectacular time there!

    The pictures I've added to my profile pics show the suite on the ship and some of the scenery we enjoyed in the fjords of Norway. The cruise itself was a fantasy come to life. The accommodations, the food, the booze, the casino, the spa, and last, but certainly not least, the new friends we made during our voyage, all were some of the best we've ever experienced.

    Congratulations on 40 years. You guys don't like you could have possibly been together for 40 years unless you met in kindergarten (this is a backhand compliment to say your studly men).

    Thanks for all the congrats!

    meninlove: The actual anniversary is November 1...and the year is really easy to remember, 'cause it's '69!!!

    Sedative: I think our luck came in more than three's. Not only did we get the ship suite upgrade and the hotel suite upgrade, we won $2,500 in the casino, the ship suite upgrade came with 5 ounce servings of caviar for as many people as we had as guests, all the free booze & champagne, regardless of what it was. We had a fulltime butler, who served breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner in the suite, if we desired. We received special treatment in the spa... the whole thing was incredible!

    Ursa: Welcome back! & thanks for the compliment...surgeons can work wonders!
