    Depends on the dressing used.

    Funny, that’s what I thought coleslaw was for.

    Hey Ling Beviek’s Brilliant Ballard Boat is underway and we’re headed for Ecuador to fix your toe and have a look around and perhaps meet your lady friend. Um….. what direction is that now???? (I told you about it yesterday. Don’t go to any trouble.)

    Hi everyone, I thought I’d find you all here on the aft deck. I love watching the wake in the moonlight. I’m exhausted, lolling around on a deck chair in the sun all day is work! I’m going to be so tan, its worth it. Susan, the buffets today are the best I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t think you could find fresh lobster out here. I’m headed off to the pool bar for a nightcap. Night all….

    Ok, folks, let’s head for the dining room. Please don’t climb on the captain’s table. It’ll pull out of the ceiling. It’s only suspended so it’ll move with the movement of the ship. It’s not for swinging on! Please be seated and we’ll have a midnight dinner. We have coleslaw on the menu. It’s a lovely palate cleanser, you know.

    It’s so nice out here in the dark away from Ballard Street.

    I can hardly keep my eyes open, but I’ll make the supreme effort for a midnight buffet! Especially with fresh lobster!

    Well, it’s almost 1am here already. And I’m ready to head for my stateroom. The waiters will bring the food out. I’m still full from birthday cake! I’m sure they’ll bring you a lovely lobster meal, with coleslaw of course. Maybe even cheesy biscuits! See you tomorrow.

    I saw your post late and didn’t get a chance to reply. We are eagerly awaiting your arrival. I will have my ship’s pilot assist you in coming into Machala’s Puerto Bolivar. One of my crew will be happy to take you and your friends to my humble hacienda. I shall be happy to personally escort you all around and show you what our fair city has to offer.
    As to meeting my lady friend, who speaks no English ( or very little ) , it will all depend on her schedule. She is Technical Secretary of State to the Governor of Cuenca Province ( true story ) and commutes over an hour each way just to get to her office. Fortunately, she will be in town tomorrow because part of her job involves serious worker injuries and making sure the hospitals are doing what they’re supposed to. Wouldn’t that be something we could use in the States.
    That’s how we met. She was at the Opthomological Hospital checking on them, when I went for my initial exam. She did promise to hold my hand when I go for my eye operations on Oct. 7th. She laughed about my toe. ( Must have been the way I explained it in Spanish. )
    I will make a big bunch of empanadas and some other dishes for you. And of course some really special fruit drinks – some with and some without rum !

    That’s a whole lot swankier that the galley on my galleon the Irish Rover. Want to swap ships ? You get to fire cannon on mine.

    Oh, are you having cataract surg? Or lasik? or what?

    Anyway, I’m glad you don’t mind surprises! There are lots of us on board.

    We’ll brush off our Spanish!


    Well, I’m heading for my stateroom……..see you tomorrow!
