DEAR DIARY – DAY 1:  All packed for the cruise ship — all my nicest dresses, swimsuits, short sets. Really, really exciting.  Our local Red Hat chapter – The Late Bloomers decided on this “all-girls” trip.

It will be my first one, – and I can’t wait!


DEAR DIARY – DAY 2:  Entire day at sea, beautiful. Saw whales and dolphins. Met the Captain today — seems like a very nice man.


DEAR DIARY – DAY 3:  At the pool today. Did some shuffleboard, hit golf balls off the deck. Captain invited me to join him at his table for dinner. Felt honored and had a wonderful time. He is very attractive and attentive.


DEAR DIARY – DAY 4:  Won $800.00 in the ship’s casino. Captain asked me to have dinner with him in his own cabin. Had a scrumptious meal complete with caviar and champagne. He asked me to stay the night, but I declined. Told him I could not be unfaithful to my husband.


DEAR DIARY – DAY 5:  Pool again today. Got sunburned, and I went inside to drink at piano-bar, stayed there for rest of day. Captain saw me, bought me several large drinks.

Really is quite charming. Again asked me to visit his cabin for the night. Again I declined. He told me, if I did not let him have his way with me, he would sink the ship… I was shocked.


DEAR DIARY – DAY 6:  Today I saved 2600 lives.
