A specially made sign for the birthday boy. Tia ordered this from Party411.com where she also got the candy bars (see wrapper in next photo.)

The slogan for the 60th birthday.....printed on a polo shirt from Cafepress.com.

No generic cakes on Mercury. They all have the celebrants name(s) on them. Nice touch. Other cruise lines just have the occasion on the cake, and not much else. Not only did Mercury bring this cake, but I got a kiss on the top of the head from our Assistant Maitre D'.

Dinger, the official mascot of the Colorado Rockies. Since the Mariners and Cardinals sucked big time at the end of the season, we've adopted the Rockies as our favorite team for the playoffs. Hopefully our "bad luck trend" won't carry over to them.

We pick up a bear from every cruise. This one is Freddie. Freddie Mercury. He was born in Queens. He and Dinger became fast friends.
