You know it’s a depression when….

February 9, 2009

Each year, Rocky’s Alma Mater arranges an exotic vacation for its alumni. Past destinations included Antartica, Alaska, Thailand, and the Baltic.

The University just announced its 2009 cruise: A Voyage Around Lake Superior.

With all due respect for Duluth, Minnesota, a visit to the Duluth Childrens Musuem and a baseball game by the Duluth Huskies is quite a step down from the Louvre and the World Cup.

Rocky remembers the saying: “It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job. It’s a depression when you lose your job.”

Rocky says: If the 2010 trip is a cruise on the Cuyahoga River (fireworks included), he’ll know it’s a depression.

    I’m thinking they should start calling this one the Great Recession, then if it gets worse, it can become the Great Depression II, just like World War II. Hope you enjoy Duluth — hope your trip isn’t til summer

    Rocky thanks Davis for his visit. He is waiting for more information about the menu and recommended items to bring before he books his trip.

    Although Rocky is found of sushi, if the recommended packing list includes “fishing pole and tackle,” he may skip this cruise.
