I could use a good HAL elevator right now.....

Recommended Posts

Is it Wednesday?  WednesdaySaturday?  Or...?

I always liked those elevator mats.  Now I think they could really be useful everywhere.....as long as there was a reliable person to keep them on track.

My husband just asked me what day it was.  One of us has to keep track of the day of the week, right?  If only I had an elevator...

It's easy.  Just remember the old rhyme.......

30 days hath September, Tuesday, June and Thursday, 

All the rest have Wednesday, 

Except for February alone, which has Saturday, except in a Leap Monday, when it has Friday and Sunday.

Whoa!  My head is spinning with that one!

I would like to be on a sea view elevator on a vista or signature class ship.

Or any elevator of a HAL ship where I can confirm:  yes, it really is Wednesday!

Seth Wayne (HAL's ambassador) posted this last Friday on his Facebook page:

 

I have a love/hate relationship with Fridays. Hear me out:

On shore -- I LOVE them. It's such a fun day of the week.

On Ship -- Not a fan. Whenever I see the Friday carpet in the elevator, it usually means the cruise is almost over 😞

Do you agree???

Want a downloadable day-of-the week carpet to help you out these days? Click here: https://spaces.hightail.com/receive/YI0nYDAGTK

 

 

Of course, someone would have to keep track of which image to use.

No. For those who take longer cruises, or cruises that don't do a Saturday-Saturday run, Friday is merely another day to enjoy.

HAL had a link to the whole set of elevator mats on its FB page. I downloaded them and use them as my profile pick. The first thing I do when I wake up is change up a day. 
Otherwise, I’d have no idea what day it is.

I guess I am in the minority.  I don't like to see the day of the week in the elevators.

 

I am on vacation and don't want to know what day it is.

I always wanted to be around at midnight to see them change the mats. However, I was always too tired and it never happened! LOL!

Next time.

If you follow the HAL page on Facebook, they are currently publishing a picture of a mat every day!

Every day is today. And you are where you are.

Except for Major Winchester on M*A*S*H.  Colonel Potter had to remind him "If you're not where you are, you're nowhere".

I've been following HAL on FB....and adding it to my own timeline phonto each day to remind me...I tend to forget Wednesday every week, trying to get through the week, I guess.  🤷‍♀️

It'll be interesting to see how the occupancy of the elevators is affected by the six-foot social separation protocol, if that will be part of the future of cruising -- especially as a condition of cruising before the July 24th CDC No-Sail Order.

Even if they changed the mats at 9 pm, very few if us would see them changed!
