Lol and Howdy, WaterSprite! My spouse Tresa and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary on this trip. We enjoy a great community of women friends here in Tulsa, but we won't know anyone on board since this is our first Olivia cruise.While we are excited about meeting new friends, it would be nice to get to know some women in advance! Soooo, here's the stats: I'll be 52, work for the post office, president of the Diversity Arts Association of Oklahoma, Air Force retiree.Tresa will be 58, and she works for Sprint customer service. We both enjoy lake and river (trout) fishing, boating, singing in a community choral group, Sisters in Song (SiS), texas hold-um, and believe in spoiling the grandkids before sending them home! You two are even close enough for us to meet for a weekend get away in Dallas. Lord knows, it would be nice to have a mini vacation! Anyone else intrested in "advance booking" friendships?
