What a Halloween!

In spring when we booked our late October cruise, we didn't even consider the fact that Halloween
would fall within the week. I wore my old T-shirt that made people smile and point.

There were few kids on this cruise, so we thought we'd participate in the evening costume contest. I made my shirt...Bat Ship Crazy, which made lots of folks laugh and say, "Creative!"

Hubby wore a generic Wal-Mart T-shirt and met up with an old African-American woman wearing the same kind. They joked about their good taste. Many people went all out as you can see below.

 This guy wore a body suit and red knee highs. I 'd say he had to have some nerve.

 Then, we saw this dude, and I had to look away...until we spied the next guy.

He dressed as Boss Baby and offered young women a suck on his bottle. No thank you. Not that he offered me a swig. LOL!

Then we had the winner, Stephanie Leavins as Cinderella and her mother as her real fairy godmother.
Stephanie's mom made her costume and adorned her wheel chair to resemble a carriage. Stephanie was born with Muscular Dystrophy. The muscles did not develop in her limbs, but her heart of gold has made up for her physcial limitations. She is a gospel singer and Christian motivational speaker. Check her page here . People crowded around her and took pictures with this joyous woman. 

 We met a really nice couple on the cruise; they were about our age, and we dined with them most evenings. Rhoda and I hit it off right away. She bears a striking resemblance to young Doris Day. Our husbands wondered how we could talk and understand one another with all the background noise in the lobby, where there was a dance party going on. You know how it is when you meet someone you can relate to? That was us. Even if we had to shout over the noise, we had similar stories, intelligent conversation, and an enjoyable time. Bob and Bill also were compatible in their politics and joking ways. Have to say, this was one of our more fun cruises.
And now I'm back to let you know, I can really shake 'em, sorry, still hearing that dance song. I will be back to blogging and writing, but today I am heading out to see my great grandsons and spend the day with them.

Something tells me you have fun wherever you are, but yes, that T-shirt had me laughing out loud! Bat Ship Crazy for sure!

Sounds like a fun, memory-making trip.

The Cinderella costume is wonderful! It sounds like you had a great time. Your t-shirt gave me a laugh.

I hope Bill wasn't envious of that red-knee-high guy's costume! Love your Bat Ship Crazy shirt.

Linda--The three guys in the... uh, memorable costumes--made some of my breakfast almost come back up.

I'm glad you and Sas had fun. It's good he went disguised in his T-shirt and khaki pants/shorts. If he had come undisguised, the ship full of people would have run from the sight of Sasquatch OR he would have won the costume contest. (Surely Bigfoot would trump Cinderella... Hee hee, I got "trump" into my comment.)

The body suit guy had some kind of self confidence!

Linda, my gorgeous sister. Thank you so much for such kind words. You are absolutely our family and I hope we get to cruise together again. God bless you, my sister. And I love you. I love you so much.

Love in Christ,
