Thanks -- this time at my advanced age I will be interested in ships only. Mostly.
Jens Boldt on Oct 29, 2009 21:24 (9 years ago)
Back in 1968-1970 I was satisfied with a chocolate bar and a pacifier!:-D
No interest in ships either, let alone that "something" you were looking for.
(Whatever THAT is????):lol:
Hope you'll manage to visit Hamburg once again (after all it's been almost 40 years now!). If you do let me know. I'd be happy to show you around.

I visited Hamburg a few times in 1968-1970 when serving in the US Army -- was stationed in the Stuttgart area and had to go to Bremerhaven to pick up my car in 1968 and deliver it to the ship in 1970. At the time I was looking for something other than ships!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:
But it is about at the top of my list of ports I would like to visit.

Then I'd skip Disney World, try to avoid snakes, alligators, mosquitos and any drug dealer (i. e. depends on what the latter is offering) and go right for my beloved cruise ships.
Too many container ships and not enough cruise ships at Hamburg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree with you on the touristic aspect. It's the same over here! :lol:
Though Hamburg is a nice place to be...

Too many cruise ships and not enough container ships in Florida!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also too many snakes, alligators, misquitos, drug dealers and Disney Worlds.
Plus all those idiot tourists, both German and American.
Good place to avoid.

Only Florida is missing? Lucky you, I've still got to explore ALL of them...
Over here in Germany it's vice versa with the retirement. You could afford to retire now, but not in 2031 (when I'm due to be retired).:-D

1. Florida is the only one of the 50 US states I have not been in although once I got within 15 miles of it.

2. Who can affortd to retire??????????????????????????????????????????
Certainly not me!

I knew this photo would cause trouble...
But I thought it would be because of the quality!

"Landlocked existance"... you've still got the possibility to move to Florida once you're retired.
I've heard that this is very popular in the US and there should be ships galore!:-D
Magogman on Oct 19, 2009 01:29 (9 years ago)
This is too much for my landlocked existance. Just call me Shipless Dave!

really nice photos you are posting
