Plush Plum

I am wearing Olay plush plum lipstick in the hopes that no one will call me "Sir" today.

This morning our tour does not leave till 10:15AM, so Lou and I have been enjoying a liesurely morning. First, we slept late, and then I ran down to the coffee shop to take out frothy caffeinated beverages. We sat on the balcony watching the island of Rhodes as we approached. Then the butler (!!!) delivered breakfast, arranging a white tablecloth and fancy place settings for us on the table on the balcony. (I am in heaven.)

We docked smoothly at the port and luckily we have a fabulous view of the Old Town (the part of the town inside the ancient walls).

We have been sitting around, drinking coffee and tea and freshly squeezed orange juice, and watching the taxi drivers clean their windshields, laugh, talk, and wrestle as they wait for victims, er, tourists, to disembark.

Our tour today is a walking tour through the Old Town.

I am feeling great. My back was bothering me yesterday. Every time I got up, I had to make an effort to stand up straight. But some Advil and a good night's sleep solved that problem.

We have met a lot of people, and I have not mentioned that I am about to jump back into chemo. Let them think I just have an unfortunate hairstyle.

Hi Karen,

You post makes me remember Cancun and the wonderful breakfasts with the freshest, most lovely fruit in the world. And just the luxury of the crisp, clean tablecloths and all the rest of it. (And yes, the taxi drivers fighting over us.)Makes me long to go somewhere exotic! Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy! love, Carol Q
