The name's Franklin, James and Heather Franklin

Tuesday was our second off boat excursion and we went to Phuket. Actually, we went to a Pha Nga bay which had an array of beautifully idyllic islands. Phang Nga is famous for having be the location of the secret headquarters to Francisco Scaramanga, the former KGB assassin turned freelance. It was great to explore the location, although we couldn't find any used bullet cases we could keep as souvenirs.
That evening it was the Captain's Dinner gala (for those not in steerage), so we dressed up in our finest (out with the tuxedo again) and started the evening drinking cocktails. Having just spent the day on James Bond Island and wearing a tux at that point in time, I naturally had a Vodka Martini. While we were drinking we were joined by a pair of um lady senior citizens. For some reason, I kept thinking of Hinge & Brackett.

After dinner, we made the mad decision to keep drinking and at 2am headed towards the karaoke bar. By this time, Heather and I were operating on autopilot, our brains having left the message "we regret to announce that this brain has stopped functioning, normal service will be resumed when this p!sshead comes to his senses". So with no sense of inhibition, we at various points grabbed the microphone and sang. Or at least Heather sang, I tortured two cats that I had found (at least that's what it sounded like to onlookers).

All this alcohol couldn't have been a good idea...
