A cloudy, cool day at sea…
Still looking for a good night’s sleep and a workable breakfast combination (even though the food is good).
My second talk - “Landmark Cases” is scheduled for 11:15 AM. While setting up, I was asked how long my talk was. I said it was about 50-55 minutes long and the tech told me I had to be done is less than 45 minutes because the dancers needed the theater for rehearsals. After a little discussion, I told him I would do my best to finish on time. I spent some time before the talk chatting with attendees.
The attendance was very good – near capacity – and a big increase from first talk (going by the 358 total capacity, the attendance was between 280 and 300 people).
I checked my watch several times during the talk and wound up finishing in 40 minutes (must have sounded pretty rushed). We left in a hurry and I chatted with some folks outside the theater.
We spent a good deal of the afternoon reading, which allowed me to finish “Without Fail” another Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. It had the most detail of any Reacher novel I have read to date – it was almost 99.9 percent analysis and the rest action. I like the analysis in these novels but I also like to see Jack put it to the bad guys.
We had dinner in the Panorama Buffet.
Before the show, we listened to pre-show dance music with Chico and Dawn in the theater. They put on a pretty good show – mellow and easy to listen to.
Showtime tonight is another Production Show – “Cinematastic” (movie songs – Time of My Life – Heart will go On, Footloose, Fame, and others). It was a good show with some nice songs and dances.

After the show, we listened to Tommy McPhee in the Casino Lounge.
Seas are smooth…
