Default T'was The Night Before Christmas 2009

It's that time of year again for my annual hommage to CruiseMates.....




T'was The Night Before Christmas 2009

T'was the Night Before Christmas and out on the seas
The CruiseMates were all gathered, busy as bees
For they were cruising together this holiday season
Just to meet up with each other, what better reason?

Kuki and our Captain Paul Motter came from Arizona,
Venice from New Orleans, and Keith & Judy from California
Also from California where the weather is hotter
Came CrazySis, KatLady, Travel Mike and ScurvyDog, (Southwest of the Border).

From Texas came Luanne & Jim, Phil & Liz, Peggy & Paul B.
Snoozeman, Mehawk, ready2gonow, and James RT.

.From Florida came Skymaster and the lovely Mrs. Jones,
And Phyllbo who makes Florida her winter home.

Many more Floridians like Floridanamaw and Angela Z
MGram, msblackjack, Cindy & Mort, and nlb1050
Pennsylvania sent PoconoPug and dfHawk60
And from Tacoma Washington came LS80

From Canada came 2LittleTime, lulu48, Delft, Cruwysie, Hez, and RD
Trip came from Boston, and of course, Jen from VT.
From chilly Wisconsin came Lisa, from Ohio Travelgalsue,
And from windy Chicago came Donna and Aerogirl, from Connecticut, Manuel too.

Mike & Betty from Minnesota, CutieCat and Todd & Fran from Tennessee,
Beenie Weenie and ready2board from Indiana, and Ray and Helen from Oconee.
Colorado sent jojob, Virginia sent Travelnut, and North Carolina sent LGriggs ,
And Bahamamama came from Kansas where she makes her digs.

From here, there and everywhere came Captain Tennille, Ron, and Mean Dean,
Dina from Detroit, Fern from Arkansas, more Cruisemates than we’d ever seen!
And who could forget Dave The Wave catching up to the ship,
In his little speed boat, in his Speedo, wiggling his hips!

So out on the sea, we were all together at last
Like some of us had been, long ago in the past.
You could hear us all call as we sailed out of sight,
Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!

Wouldn't that be a wonderful cruise! Thank you so much for these wonderful poems. I always enjoy them tremendously, and it gives me a chance to remember each member of our family!

Merry Christmas!

I can't figure out why this site won't let us post without a hassle. It logs us out every time before we finish. If you don't hear from Judy it's not because she's not trying. Keith

A superb job as usual. (And I thought you'd be too busy to write the Christmas poem this year.) Merry Christmas to y'all, from here in Florida.

"SKY" & the lovely Mrs. Jones, (Vita).
