This is a special posting for Gigi. Your mother said I had to post this today because you would be “so proud” of your parents. Last night was the “Black and Red Ball” (China theme). The large theater was packed and we had the Amsterdam orchestra playing big band music with dancing on the stage and in the aisles. Door prizes were given and the dancing was stopped from time to time to give away bottles of Champaign. The last bottle to be given away was for the couple who looked the most romantic on the dance floor. Well, I knew your mother and I were a shoe-in for that one, so I asked her to dance and guess what, WE WON. The Cruise Director, who was the judge, said to everyone when he gave us the prize, that from the minute we stepped on the floor he could tell we were “madly in love,” or words to that effect. We enjoyed the bottle with some people sitting next to us as you can see from the photo below. Also you see a overall shot of the theater, but that’s not us, I borrowed the photo from someone else.
Back to cruising,
Love you Gigi and All,
Gary (alias Gagu)
