I was kidnapped and held for ransom. I was lucky to get out alive!

there was an online article in USA Today about the Cougar Cruise and you were not quoted or were there any photos of you, so I wanted to make sure you were alright for the experience

how much was your ransom

I read that article. Someone posted it on the Royal Caribbean board. Florida Girl was onboard. I was tied up in a cabin for 3 days. The cougars were taking turns with me. They fed me room and bar service but wouldn't untie me to leave. I finally was able to struggle free and escaped when the steward came in to clean the room. I hid in the boiler room the rest of the cruise and got out with the luggage early in the morning when we arrived back in port. I think one of them slipped a blue pill in my Mai Tai. The cabin phone was just out of reach from me so I couldn't call the ships doctor after 4 hours in a condition. It will be a little while before I am the same again. I have a cruise coming in October on the Radiance and should be OK by then.

But the more interesting question is: who will portray Florida Girl?

and i figured out the plot (since DTW lives in Florida it might be better to be a CSI Miami episode)

Dave The Wave concocts this scheme to win a new car sales contest by advertising a special promotion for single young ladies between the ages of 18 thru 25 that sign a pledge that they will remain innocentuntil they get married or turn 26..in return they will qualify for a new Honda Element at zero percent interest, with no $$$ down and a 10 year repayment plan.... plus a 7 day cruise on DTW's favorite cruise line..what they don't know until they check in for their cruise that DTW is their cabin mate...the mother's of these young ladies decide to get even with DTW by organizing a Cougars Cruise and inviting the unsuspecting DTW to be the judge for 2010 Cruising Cougar of the Year

once the ship sails, the Cougars keep DTW in his inside cabin and do their version of the movie "Misery" with special guest Cougar Kathy Bates (they told DTW that Demi Moore was going to be his co-judge) ...DTW sneaks off the boat on the last day of the cruise and when he reports to his car dealership on monday morning he receives an email from Florida Girl stating that she will post an embarassing viral video on YouTube of DTW's week in his cabin ..enraged at this blackmail attempt, DTW reports the kidnapping and Horatio Cane investigates and declares the cabin a crime scene

For recovery I recommend lots of bed rest and beer. Welcome back from that harrowing experience.;-)

This was during the cougar cruise on Mariner of the Seas. These are two of the cougars that later kidnapped me and kept me hostage in their cabin. I tell you it was horrible!

Kuki, you are right. They are a little younger than me. They are cougars in training. These were the real cougars!
