    This evening after dinner we went for a nightcap but found the bar was karaoke night. The host asked me if I wanted to sing and my reply was if only I could talk properly lol. Wrong place wrong time.

    Still smiling,
    Barry

    Hi Barry,

    It sounds like you were a ray of sunshine for the folk on the coach, and thank you for sharing your chuckles with us - reading your post made me smile and cheered me up today!

    So glad that you and your wife enjoyed the cruise.

    Love and best wishes to you both,

    Nearing the end of our cruise and I was in fits of laughter (emotional lability) on the coach for today’s tour. My wife as ever had notified the organisers that we wanted a front seat on the coach. Most of the passengers were Americans and they all had disabilities of some kind however they were not organised in reserving seats. The conversation centred around a competitive, how many joints each had had replaced and the locker was full of wheelchairs and walkers, mine included. My voice is not great but I got a round of applause when I shouted this is not a coach but it is more like an ambulance.

    It made me feel like my condition was irrelevant and I had a smile on my face all morning.

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes.

    Spent 4 hours ashore in Funchal, Madeira and the hip is holding out but I’m pleased I packed some paracetamol. I spoke to a lady who had hired a scooter which was delivered to the ship so this is something worth knowing if I am up to cruising next year. As they say where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    Love to all.

    Barry

    I failed in my quest to stay safe as moving around even with a walker is proving challenging. Toppled over this morning and now nursing a bruised hip. Lots of helpers coming to my assistance and for once they didn’t haul me to my feet but helped me to my knees and then up. There are many people onboard with disabilities and whether on crutches or with walkers the conversation turns to a determination to enjoy life regardless. Landfall tomorrow so I am looking forward to terra firma.

    I didn’t have the nerve to ask chef for a selfie but he did sign my complimentary book about recipes with cheese.
