Does that sound like it will work??????
Sounds like a plan !

I take it that by KY friends (or finest) you mean that stuff you buy in gallon jugs? We used to live in KY years ago, and my Pappy used to come home with some interesting things. My grandmother was particularly fond of something called "raisin wine." Don't know if it was actually make of raisins, but she sure liked it! She lived until 94, too! Must have been medicinal.

We are flying in the day before, staying near MCO, and then taking car service to the port on Saturday morning. We have asked to make a stop, but to pick up seltzer (DH can't survive the week without his seltzer) and sunscreen (we are very pale people, so we need to lay in a supply for the week, and I don't want to pack it all, especially with the weight restrictions on luggage). DH is a scotch lover, but I really don't drink anything stronger than scnapps, unless its diluted in fruit juice. We'll probably pack him a small bottle of scotch, and then if I want some wine we can probably just get that on our stop or in Key West.

Pics here of some http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl...-8&sa=N&tab=wi

One here someones made on UK forum for their cruise. http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...3&postcount=33

Last option is not a proper fish extender, just some kind of bag. If you want to participate its better than nothing and an easy option so close.
Thanks, all, for your suggestions and help. I'm guessing we'll be making our own! Ok, consider us signed up for FE - my brood is spread over two cabins - 7572 and 7570. Looking forward to taking part!

Added FE after you name, also your cabin numbers. Just need to get you on Maria's list now and we are all set.

I was hoping our FE would be completed this week but still waiting for a package from US to add to it. Will post pics when its done.

Well, if we were talking in "that" direction, no I would not go to KY, but go to Nashville, TN, or to some of my backwood spots in Michigan for that matter. We have a family recipe from Colonial North Carolina, but have no idea how good it is. I was meaning my Pappy V.W., or Mr. Stagg, or Old Mr. Taylor, Col. Blanton and Elmer Lee who produce the finest products on the planet. Not referring to the products, so much as the men who have run Buffalo Trace Distillery and Van Winkle Distillery joint venture.

Hi Bev,

My name is Tammi, DH is Jon, DS is Trevor (12) and DD is Kayla (10).

It will be so nice to put a face to all these names on the cruise. I was thinking of scanning our cruise pic. from last year, but I am not that technical.

I remember the chilli logos did we decide on which one we would use??
I thought I would try and have a go at making some t shirts for us.

Hi All,

long time since I've posted, just got back into holiday mode this weekend.

to all the new cruisers.

We are also using the top design for our FE gifts, but I will probably have all three on our various doors.

Just dug out the suitcases and found the door magnets from two years ago. Have put some on the fridge with the new ones, but will have to update the rest, as we've got three doors to decorate. Good job we have a big fridge to put them on. Will try and get a photo done tomorrow. Just have the Scouts raft race to do and hopefully pick up a new minibus we just won on ebay. Nothing like leaveing it to the last minute to find transport for summer camp in a couple of weeks, but that's a thanks a story for the bar one night on the cruise.

Dave

A race of hyperintelligent pan-dimensional beings once built themselves a gigantic supercomputer called Deep Thought to calculate once and for all the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

For seven and a half million years, Deep Thought computed and calculated, and in the end announced that the answer was in fact Forty-two — and so another, even bigger, computer had to be built to find out what the actual question was.

I propose the Ultimate Question is: "How many more days until our cruise?"

Of course, there is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I miss Douglas Adams. I had long hoped for a book six in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy.

Have fun with the scout camp, Dave. I am counting down the years until I can accompany my son...
