My apologies, dear readers... a very late night, last, and I slept in. And while Stewardess Lucy Snape thought to give me a treat by not waking me (thank you, Lucy!) I realize I've missed nearly half the day. So, skipping breakfast, now, and it's off to lunch. But not before checking to make sure our good Mr. Phillips (who is growing quite expectant of his coffee and chicken sandwich near midnight) had no difficulties getting my Marconigram off to the NEW YORK WORLD in the wee hours of the morning. And after that... I will join you all ON THE PROMENADE to talk about some things I'm sure not everyone knows about third class.
Oh, yes, and for any of my "Armchair Travelers" who are following a bit closer than most, an explanation of exactly what a "Marconigram" is, typed into the comments area, below, will get you another name in the Captain's hat for the final drawing at the end of this voyage. But more on that later!
