    Play-it-safe Roger takes no chances!

    I thunk you’ve gone overboard, Roger.

    Linguist will have to tell us if Roger’s get up is authentic
    or (knot.( He knows about those things.

    The book does appear to be holding his interest, judging by the way his eyes are about to pop out.

    A Night to Remember, by Walter Lord. One of, if not the best book about sea disasters. The Titanic. Bonus: No Celine Dion.

    I sure hope Roger doesn’t wake up with a sore back and one hell of a nasty taste in his mouth…

    I’ve also read it AND without the aid of 3D glasses.

    A Night To Remember is also the best Titanic movie – the most recent was a disgrace!

    Roger just finished The Life of Pi.

    I also recommend ‘The Ship That Stood Still’ by Leslie Reede which examines the mysterious role of the Californian and its failure to attend the disaster, much to the confusion of witnesses and survivors!

    My favorite Lifesaver is butter rum.
    Many years ago they came in clove.
    When I was a kid I’d get a Lifesavers “Sweet Story Book” every year for Christmas. I always saved the butter rum for last.

    @BRI-NO-MITE!!

    I remember my first lifesaver ever. A gentleman offered me one during a storm at sea when we were crossing the ocean on the way to Central America. Most everyone was getting pretty urpy.


    I also began getting the “Book” of lifesavers for Xmas. I used to get them for my kids too. But don’t remember when I stopped giving them. I wonder are they even still made? I haven’t seen or thought of them in years!

    @Number Six

    I agree about the film “A Night to Remember”.


    Re: that nasty taste. Perhaps Bri will offer you a lifesaver. If they still make clove, that would probably help. :) Re: the sore back. Start stretching exercises. When your back is more flexible, your problem will go away. Within reason…………….

    That’s the Carnival passenger handbook.

    Good morning, all….

    or good evening….
    whatever fits your time zone and lifestyle.


    Anybody still here?

    Roger appears to me to be wearing only half a life preserver.


    I don’t think the other half could be so neatly submerged in the couch cushions.


    My theory is that he has devised a very secure dry land safety device….
    the half-circle of life-preserver is sewn to the couch at each of its ends….


    Roger slides into the resulting arch, feet first, till he’s lying down…
    and then, he can’t fall off onto the rug….


    Or into the waves, in the supremely unlikely even that Ballard county is inundated with deep floodwater…


    And in that case, he’ll not be struggling to keep his head above water…
    oh no ….
    he’ll be floating along on the couch….
    with a convenient rope attached, which he can tie to any handy dock, or toss to a would-be rescuer.
