    Even when I fly, I usually make sure I am looking extra good, with nice flats. I get treated extremely well! When I look around me, at other passengers, I know why! I think people appreciate you looking good for them. Personally, I am willing to go that extra mile. I really like the treatment.

    I sometimes wear jeans (full length dark ones in very good condition) when I fly, but I always wear a somewhat dressy shirt or sweater with them. My hair/makeup is always fixed & I wear matching earrings or even a simple necklace. Even then I do feel a little under dressed for the situation.

    I'm always put off by those wearing beat up ratty looking clothes, or worse yet, shredded quite short jean shorts & a string strap cami on a plane. I've seen both looks at weddings & funerals too. For those I always dress up.

    I read what not to wear on a plane from a safety standpoint once. I don't remember it all, but it was about surviving a crash. Heavy jeans would weigh you down in water, synthetics would melt on your skin in fire. Flip flops/heels would make it difficult to evacuate - that sort of thing. The last time I flew (to Paris) I wore loose, elastic waist linen pants with a cotton knit shirt and a shawl for warmth on the plane. Sturdy walking shoes.

    When on a cruise, DH and I will go to the Sterling Steak House on formal night (unlike the other restaurants on Princess you pay $15 plus tip for a great steak dinner in a nice quiet dining room at the top of the ship) rather than get all dressed up formally. Just not our style. That said, though, I always shop for new clothes for a cruise and I usually wear white capris and a cute top and I dress DH in a Tommy Bahama shirt and slacks or shorts. It always surprises me to see some folks haphazardly (almost sloppily) dressed for a cruise vacation. We dress like we are staying at a very nice hotel. Which it kinda' is!

    We may go to the steakhouse on the evening of our anniversary. Do you think we should invite them to join us, or should be an intimate evening for two? Decisions, decisions.

    (Honestly, I'd feel mean about not inviting them to join us. Princess gave us all free vouchers for Sterling's. Of course, they probably gave them to everyone else on the ship, too, to we'll need to call as soon as we get on board!)

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I think you get vouchers because of having cruised with them so frequently! We pay the $15. We love the Steakhouse! It's quiet and more intimate with tables with window views, and since you know your Kansas friends so well you can either invite them or not and because of your special day they won't feel left out if you want to just dine alone. Maybe they'd like to have a private dinner themselves without you trailing along for once. LOLOLOLOL

    At the Steakhouse your waiter will bring a tray of the different cuts of meat, describing each one, and let you choose which you want cooked for you. Can't go wrong with the Filet Mignon! And if you are too full for dessert, as we always are, they will deliver your dessert to your room for later.

I have no desire to wade through all the secondhand smoke , given the lax (or nonexistent?) smoking regulations ... and my subsequent asthma reactions to it. Not my idea of a pleasant vaycay.

    I don't know, I'm not really a Vegas person, but I had a ball when we all met there for FortCon all those years ago.

    I'm not a gambler or a smoker, but I'm a people watcher, so Vegas is fun for me. We hope to go up in October so I can eat at a couple of Gordon Ramsay places.

    Every time I see Robin Roberts, I just shake my head and think, "14 million dollars." How long is that for?
