When I was a kid, I found ocean liners fascinating. I read every book I could find about them, and even went to all the travel agencies which used to be clustered along 6th Street in downtown Los Angeles to get brochures. I also scored a few folders with deck plans of several liners, including the original Queen Elizabeth. For a long time, I fantasized about working on an ocean liner, but by the time I was old enough, most of them had vanished. There were more and more cruise ships, but they never appealed to me. I suppose it's just as well, since I've never learned to swim. (I hate when water runs into my ears.) I probably wasn't suited for a life at sea, anyway. But I still have a fondness for ocean liners. I'd really like to sail on the QM2 someday.
Oh, night has flown, and I must once again go to sleep with the chatter of morning birds in my ears. At least it is expected to be a bit cooler today, so I might get more time with Sluggo tonight.
