#31 - Dressing Up for Dinner - and not feeling over the top
#32 - Being alone on the deck in the early morning hours, sipping coffee
at the rail
#33 - People Watching
#34 - Knowing my tablemates won't think it odd if I order two desserts
after dinner, because I just can't decide!
#35 - Anticipating the new shopping possibilities at each Port
#36 - Knowing that I have nothing I "have" to do, but can still "do"
anything I want.

71- watching people "behaving badly". poor manners abound on a cruise ship. I like to watch them, and intervene if necessary. Call it a shipboard hobby.

You guys have got our numbers all goofed up!

So, adding Trip's numbers to Bo's, and excluding the several repeats, that should put us about 76.

Only 24 more to go!
