Far Out, Man.....

I plan to take part in the Slice of Life March Challenge, but wonder if the first week I will fail.  Now why would I worry about this?  I have participated for four years and managed to put something together for 99% of the time.  In fact, the challenge forces me to write.  And that is a good thing.  My fear is because we will be traveling the first week of March, I am not sure how much down time we will have.

We will be on the Flower Power Cruise!  We have already received our Flower Power T-shirts and I have purchased a few items that will take us back to the 1960s. We have love beads, a headband with a peace sign on it, John Lennon hats and a pair of John Lennon sunglasses.  Ray tells me that he doubts he will be wearing the love beads or the peace sign tattoos, but we shall see.

Ray was the one who first heard
about the Flower Power Cruise and mentioned it to me.  From there, I got on line and signed us up fearing that there would be no more room on the ship.  We have no clue as to what it will be like.  We know we will enjoy the music and hope to meet some of the artists.  Micky Dolenz from the Monkees, Peter Noone from Herman's Hermits, Mark Lindsay from Paul Revere and the Raiders....wow...those are just a few!  It will be like watching "Where the Action Is"* while cruising to Key West and Cozumel.

My Slices will probably be short, with pictures of the day's activities and short descriptions.  I hope to get at least that much done.  "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" as we "Dance to the Music" and are"Groovin" to the tunes.  "Can't You Hear My Heart Beat!!"
Peace and Love to us all.

Here is a website for the 2017 Flower Power Cruise.  This year's has been sold out for weeks. Flower Power Cruise 2017

*For those young people who may not know about "Where the Action Is", here is a YouTube clip to enjoy.  Where the Action Is  It was an after school show full of music, dancing and fun.


  1. Sounds like a really fun time. Of course, the 60's were well before my time (yeah, sure). Hope you and Ray enjoy. Looking forward to seeing your pictures and reading your comments. I actually did see Micky Dolenz once although not in concert. He was touring with Pippin.

  2. How cool. I would have loved to have seen Micky in Pippin!

  3. Oh my, those group names bring back some memories! What a fun time you will have! Can't wait to read all about the fun and rubbing shoulders with the "stars."

  4. As I go to school each day, I will look forward to hearing about the fun you are having. I think there should be extra points for posting while on a ship.


  5. Sounds like a fabulous cruise. Look forward to reading/seeing your posts.
