I've mentioned a few times in the last few weeks that I've had a little surprise in the works, and that it would be un-veiled on the first day of the cruise. Well, it's time to let you in on the surprise... and it's a very happy surprise, indeed.

The surprise is that I'll be sailing with a very special guest at my side, and here she is...

Image

As I'm sure you know, Kellyn and I filed for divorce in June of this year. Since that time, both of us have had much time for reflection and introspection... leading us to come to one overwhelming conclusion: the divorce was our worst idea, ever!

We're delighted to tell you that we reconciled about two weeks ago. We've withdrawn the divorce papers, fired the lawyer, and decided to turn Cruise-A-Palooza II in to "Jim & Kellyn's Second Honeymoon".

In fact, because we're now absolutely sure that we're in it "til death do us part"... we've decided to renew our marriage vows this week during the cruise. Of, course, our fellow Cruise-A-Paloozers will be there as witnesses!

I know this probably comes as a big surprise to you, just as the original divorce news probably did in June. Kellyn and I want to thank you all for the support you've shown us over the last couple of months. It's been a difficult process, but we sure can't complain about the results... our marriage is now stronger than ever.

Assuming that our fellow Cruise-A-Paloozers do not read the forum this morning on the way to the cruise ship... seeing Kellyn onboard should be a total surprise to all of them. We're really looking forward to seeing their faces at that first moment they see who I've brought along with me!

Keep an eye on the forum this week, and stay up on all the rest of the Cruise-A-Palooza news!

And I hope this isn't too soon to ask...but do you think the Zim Breeding Program is back together? :dk
