I posted this awhile back and several framers and teachers signed up. I will post the schedule I have right now, but the ship is almost full and the price has gone up. If your interested, you had best call Julie right now.

Tax time is a good time to think of a cruise. rest, fun and a deduction? Maybe, ask your tax person.

Hi Nona,

How nice the ship is almost full! I think that sailors are more likely to become part time framers than the other way around. Have you asked sailors to join your Education at Sea Program?

I'm keeping the education in the family first, then maybe I'll go outside, even to sailors. Just kidding!

I wanted to go on one of these cruises and thought if I could make it a business trip I could justify the expense and it's more fun to travel with people you know and like. So far we have a great group going. I thought we had lots of time because it's not until October, but the ship went and almost sold out on me. I imagine there might be some last minute cancellations, but if you want to go, best call Julie.

The optional excusion Julie is arranging for us sounds really nice. The lunch is in Richard Burton's old house that has been re done and is included between a full day tour of the main gallaries in Puerto Vallarta.

It's also good because you can fly into San Diego that day, make the ship then have all day the day we get back to fly home, so you wouldn't have to stay in a hotel at all.
