The cruises sound lovely ladies.  Sadly not for me or DH.  DH get very very seasick, he doesn't even go out with DS in his boat on a fishing trip.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Judy, that all sounds very exciting.  The difficulty with Cruising for us it that we like to spend a few days in a city.  As our days of big trips are over, this may be something we should seriously consider.

A men's shed on a cruise boat would be perfect. The boys could play and the ladies have fun.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I spent the day with my SIL today, we went to Harbour Town and I came home with new quilt sets for 2 of my bedrooms.  SIL bought a throw for her bed, she didnít know she needed one until she saw that it was a perfect match for her quilt cover.   We had a nice, long lunch at The Coffee Club before continuing on to the end of the complex.  5 hours well spent.

Bought a new iron for RAL. He does the ironing.  Mostly irons his own things.  I try to but non iron things for myself.
Also was a bit impulsive and bought a small machine called a Red Copper 5 minute Chef.  Thought I might make different shaped SD crumpets in it. Think it might also be good to make an omelette for breakfast.

CC, made SD crumpets in it.  Ok.
Cooked an egg for breakfast. Ok.
Also cooked bacon in it.  Had to crisp it up in AF.
It is handy but I would like it to get hotter.
Paid $47.  Too expensive for what it does.  Cheaper ones on eBay but they melt.
Handy for 1 person who has limited cooking facilities. ( not me  :D)
Mini pie machine much better value.

Some friends of ours who have a slightly intellectually handicapped son bought one of these for him. He has been living by himself for quite a few years now with a little help. He makes omelettes in it, he adds lots of bits and pieces.

Cookie, I think what you have described would be perfect.
