Hi All, Last day of the week Yippee!!!! We are supposed to take the clients on a cookout to the beach today. As of now, 4:30 AM it is rainy. the weatherman is saying it will rain all day. Looks like we might have cancel our trip and cook the meal at program. I hope all of you in the areas affected by the storms will move to safer ground. Whereever you are have a great day.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
I awoke to wind and rain at 5:30 am. The hurricane is 85 mile south of Key West ,picking up speed (18mph) and winds are 110 mph. Headlines on the newspaper
"Charley, Target Tampa"
Will keep you posted as long as we have power here.
Have a great day even if it is friday the 13...
Good morning Cruznut2, Carole and all the CM's to follow. Thank goodness it is Friday! What a week. Although, it did go by very quickly. It sure looks like FL is going to be hard hit with Charley. Stay safe.

We are experiencing the calm before the storm. It's very quiet here since I got up shortly after 6:30AM. I did notice there was a reddish sky at the Eastern end of the street.No garbage pick-up yet.That's unusual. Maybe they have the day off. Our morning walkers are out. The wind will be picking up by 10AM. The brunt of Charlie is estimated on the Tampa side between 2-5PM, but the worst closest to 5 and throughout the night.
Talk to you later. I see a squirrel up in one of the trees behind us. I hope he has a house later today!! Lynne
Good Morning all! Well, I was supposed to be flying into Tampa tomorrow for my first ever cruise on Inspiration, which leaves Sunday. Guess I'll have to wait and see what happens. The airport will close this afternoon and who knows when it will re-open. BUT, putting things into perspective, even if I miss my cruise, I will still have my home and health. I hope everyone in Tampa stays safe and still has their health and homes after Charley comes through. Stay safe everyone!
I haven't been in for a while. The summer has been quite busy. I won't go into details.
But I just want to wish the best for all the Fla. CMs. You folks are in my thoughts and prayers.
Have a great day, all!
I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!
Good morning all. I sympathize with all you insomniacs. I had no problem last night, as I did my Pilates class last night, and all that inhaling and exhaling had me yawning on the mat! So relaxed by the time I got home....
Do you realize today is Friday the 13th? Sorry, didn't mean to scare you!
Our weather looks much like Florida this morning, dark and rainy. Heavy rain and thundershowers are predicted for the whole day, so we have cancelled our daycare fieldtrip to the outdoor Ecomuseum (a bit like a natural habitat zoo), and re-scheduled a movie instead. We are going to see Shrek 2, and I can't wait to see it again!
Hoping that all you Floridians have a safe day.....
Good morning from another beautiful Vancouver day!
Jeleja:I hope you get on your cruise! You have a good attitude!!
RollerD:We saw Shrek2-it is good(funny).Oh yes, and thanks( )for the Fri.the 13th reminder!
Florida people:take extra care!!!
Nothing too exciting planned today.My married niece is coming over to visit, so last evening we tidied up like maniacs(whew..was I hot!!). Maybe watch some Olympics Opening Cermonies. Only saw 2 shooting stars last night.
Bye for now. Take care. Brenda in Vancouver
