Big news abounds. First off, Road of the Lost has now been out for a month and people are finishing it up and the reviews are starting to come in. If you’ve finished the book, please head over to Amazon, Goodreads, iBooks, or wherever else you made your purchase and leave a review to let others know what you think.
Next up, we just returned from our annual trip to the Carribean for the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise. Some big news came out of the cruise. Take a look at our photo below to see if you can spot what that news might be.
Wedding bells are ringing, my friends! I’m truly blessed to have such a supportive, wonderful, funny, smart, and beautiful woman in my life. I’m looking forward to the next few months of wedding planning and the many years together beyond that.
As for the cruise itself, it exists in my memory only as a blur of constant music and moving from one great show to the next. Usually, we take a break or two to enjoy the ship’s amenities, such as playing a round of mini-golf, fake-surfing on the flo-rider, and sitting down for dinner in the dining room. Not so this time. Besides our first meal aboard the ship, I don’t remember eating other than grabbing a slice of pizza from Sorento’s on a fly-by from one show to the next. There were a ton of great bands we’ve loved for years to see. There were a ton of bands we hadn’t heard of before they were announced for the cruise that we needed to see. There were bands we didn’t know existed until we got aboard that now we’re ravenously devouring their music.
Since most of my memory is a giant blur of one show to the next, getting engaged, and margaritas on the beach, let’s get to the good stuff: PICTURES!
Those are the highlights from this year’s cruise. It was an amazing time and thank you to all the great bands, crew, and fans that make it happen every year. I’m sad to be back to reality, but looking forward to honeymooning aboard next year! Now, let’s get back to some adventures in the Land of Nod!
