I've enjoyed this thread. What fun! Off the subject but those three Speedo Santa's had GREAT TEETH. Matt my CHEWDR DH and I will be on the EOS in 15 days! Sorry he doesn't have a speedo. Karla

P.S. Dave any tips for the EOS. Besides attire.

Just did that trip in November. Did you see my photo gallery from it? Do a search in photo gallery for Dave the Wave and you will see it and a few others. Actually 3 just of the Enchantment. Key West is a short day. Cozumel a full one. To me, the ship is the destination. Days at sea are the best.

We had great weather and camped in an area called Moses Creek. It is pre-historic and completely roughing it. We took everything in by jon boat and cooked a pig. A far cry from the cruise experience but good for the kids to appreciate nature and how to go to the bathroom with a shovel.

There were no Speedos.....

DTW, a SHOVEL! EWWWWW! My idea of roughing it is when we don't have electricity for our 36ft 5th wheel! Have done my days of roughing it though. We started out with a 2-man pup tent (triangular shape) and a 62 Falcon pickup. We spent 2 weeks in Colorado at the end of September/beginning of October, when the colors were changing. It was rough, but it was wonderful! Give me a cruise ship, now!

Default A "LITTLE" Speedo joke

Bubba liked to frequent the old swimming hole but was never able to attract the girls. He decided to ask his friend Billy-Bob for advice.



"It's those big baggy swimming trunks that make you look like an old fool. They're years
outta style. Your best bet is to grab yourself a pair of Speedos-about two sizes too small and drop a fist-sized tater down inside them. I'm telling ya man...ya'll have all the babes you want!"

The following weekend, Bubba hits the swimming hole with his spanking new tight Speedos, and his fist-sized potato. Everybody at the swimming hole was disgusted as he walked by, covering their faces, turning way, laughing, looking sick!

Bubba went back to his buddy Billy-Bob and asked him, "What's wrong now?"



"Lard Almighty!" said Billy-Bob, "the tater goes in the front!"

DTW: just a few more days and I will be on the pool deck surrounded by the glorious Miami sunshine or perhaps a glorious late afternoon thunderstorm; either way, I will be looking for Speedos....
