Hey, Mario! One week until we sail and two until you do! This hasnt been too bad a winter here in SW Ontario, but we are dying to get on board. MY DH is packed, and so is my sister already. We are skipping out of work early Friday to begin our holiday a bit early. Hate to leave the grandkids - they are 2 and 1, but happy to leave work for a week! The packaging industry will be fine without us. Good friends of ours just came back from a 10 day cruise and said that it would be very hard to go back to a 7 day cruise! Sigh....... Nice, eh? Well, drag out your luggage and cancel the newspaper, Mario! It wont be long, now!! Best wishes from Ken and me to you and your lovely wife for the best cruise yet!
