Some of my favourite people on board here call me SeamoN...not sure what they think I was getting at with that name but after many years of chuckling when I see it in print (but very happy to see it to know I'm remembered!!!) I just want to clarify that I am really SeamoM. Trust me that it hasn't bothered me one way or another because there are no other names similar here so I know you mean me, though it astounds me how many there seem to be out there, when I try to register that name elsewhere as a pseudonym! This type of thread has been started before but it's always fun for us oldies to remember and for the newbies to share why they chose their 'pen'name...and it's a nice way to start the new year getting to know each other again ...Happy New Year, Y'all!. I came here to C@ in 2000 (?) when we were going to go on a cruise with my son. I'd been on solo cruises before marriage but wasn't sure how to go about some of the details with kid in tow and found this spot exploring for information. My son's been on three cruises and hubby and I have actually had a mini one alone since. How about you?
