Lower the gangplank

The waiting is almost over, my friends!  Just a couple of hurdles left, then we board the Norwegian Spirit in New Orleans on Sunday (22nd).  The hurdles I mentioned are that we are under a winter storm watch for tonight, then of course there’s the drive itself.  Please let’s don’t have icy roads for our long drive south.  We plan to leave mid-morning to drive to Jackson, Mississippi, about 10 hours from here.  So, weather permitting, we’ll be there tomorrow night, then finish the trip to New Orleans on Sunday, about 3 hours.   We’ll drop off the car at the storage place, then the nice folks there will run us over to the cruise ship docks.  The ship departs at 5:00PM.  We are some kinda excited!  I’ve included our itinerary below so you can see where all we’ll be.  Wish us luck!   (note to burglars: we have a house-sitter this time, and she’s accompanied by our fierce watchdog Millie!)
