Default note to katlady....

I just wanted to tell you katlady, that I enjoy reading your responses to peoples statements/questions. You are always fair and informative! I have taken my 4 yr old grandson on a cruise twice this past year. We live in Ohio and boarded the cruise ship in Miami so our flights were 2-1/2 hours long. We took books and bought him a dvd player so he can watch movies on the plane. Of course, sometimes as hard as you try, kids just seem to go crazy sometimes. On the plane, he did decide a couple times he wanted to put his feet on the back of the seat of the person in front of us and push, or do some other goofy thing. I immediatly apologized to the person, and was always given a "that's ok" or some other understanding response. People with kids need to be more aware and realize that most people are understanding if the parent/adult is respectful of those around them. If I take him to a restaurant or store and he starts to act up, we leave!

Thank you Cals Granny that is nice of you to say. I don't want people to think I dislike all children. Most are well behaved. I would not mind being on a plane behind you or your grandson.

Yes, she is a lovely person for such a big bloke, okay so your not the big bloke in the middle, which one are you?

Thats why I find its easier to a non descript avator, people can make up their own minds how you look, especially when they are so "You are always fair and informative!"

I'm one of the two lasses in the picture you pick which one. The big bloke is my hubby.

Are you the fern or the woman that jumped into the picture 8).... See your doing this right and left thing again.

Yip, nice one...oooh,,,, I appear to be flirting with the voice larger than mine.

Normal service will resume.

Okay since you dragged back into the tattoo debate with that picture. I don’t know why you even considered that green moustache:

I agree..great photo. Can I base a painting on it? Seriously...I'm an artist and it's a great composition. Won't be a portrait, as I don't do those anymore.

My hubby takes great pictures, he took that one. He said you can use it but he wants to see the painting once you are done. I would have replied sooner but we were on vacation to Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Aches, and Las Vegas. He took some great pictures there I will post them soon.

So your gripe was what??? Was it the color of the sky presented to you by the ship?

When are you going to learn this is a gripes board, not a digital photo board or a better place to hang your cruise experience pictures.

So your GRIPE was ??????,,,listening 8)

Come on, there are other places to do this sort of stuff

My gripe is people who complain about photos in posts. These photos weren't taken on a crusie either. So I'm griping that the cruise lines have not figured out a way to make a cruise ship go to Utah.
