HIT ME, HIT ME AGAIN said in the game of blackjack...on a cruise ship.

John and I are the only two who wander into the ship's casino every night after the show. John likes three card poker, which I can't afford with a $10 ante....and I play blackjack, minimum bet $3.

Now, on day one I met Carlos. Carlos was born in Morocco, but lives in Quebec. We like playing blackjack together and bring each other good luck. Carlos also likes the fact that I have a French name......some men are so shallow! Last night Carlos' wife Marilyn happened to show up. She's a beautiful woman, and seemed friendly enough but, after I took this picture of her and Carlos, Carlos asked her to take a picure of him with ME.....she said she didn't know how to use my camera...hmmmm.

Now, these are two other "regulars" who play at the same table every night. Chase is from Arizona, and Franklin is from Australia. They are both funny and they don't have jealous wives....that I know of.

One of my favorite dealers is Francisco...he lets me win..sometimes. So there you have a mini update from last night. I still have a few hours left to wander around Skagway, and take some pictures before the ship leaves port. I will post again as soon as I can....probably not until Saturday, which is when we dock in Whittier. Now, I can read your comments, and comment back from my blackjack phone, but I can't update the blog.

I dont quite know how to ask this without being you like the cruise (searching for a non-offensive word.....) Um, "bad girl"? I mean, you seem to really be making the rounds. Are you ditching your girl friends to go hand out with all these guys????

Anyhoo.....the kids are asking me every 3.4 seconds, when you are arriving, what's on the schedule, etc. etc. Can you remind me again...when are you arriving?

Have fun.

And, BTW, Im sure you meant to say you first met Kristie in Oct. 2003 (not 2005).

Marilyn was giving you the stink eye. I know this because I have had to do it myself.
Looks like a fun time.
Love the updates.
You are fab.

I am so glad you are having so much fun! I have never played black jack (or any other betting game for that matter) but I can tell that it is lots of fun.

SO funny that the lady couldn't "work the camera"

When you got it, you got it : ) and apparently you've got it, Grandma J!

You go, Grandma J. Men, gambling, exotic locales, you're my idol.

In addition, how in tarnation do you blog from a cell phone?? And more importantly how in the name of all that is technical do you write little captions on your pictures from a cruise ship off the coast of Alaska??

Please hurry up and offer that technology seminar. Or give me Paul's number. (Is it Paul? I can't keep up with all your men.)

Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! (Sorry, I just watched the movie 21.) Have you been counting cards because I think I might be a pro at it now.

You are SUCH the man's lady! (As opposed to ladies man!)

Looks like you are having a grand time meeting all those men! The pictures are great and I'm glad you finally ran into Kristie.
