Good Morning cruisemates. Take care Florida residents, I'll keep my fingers crossed!
This morning begins the long awaited "move". Will be working at it all weekend. Guess it's aptly named for me anyway, Labor Day. lol

Good Morning from work..I am thinking of nothing but this storm..Wondering if by it slowing down is going to make it worse by all the flooding it will cause of if it speeds up and just gets on across..It's driving me nuts and I dont even live in Fla but You know that I am really concerned about all of you that do live there. Hang in there Folks and maybe it will be over soon. Prayers still going out to all of you.

Jim and leslie..hope you have a good day and weekend
Trip..Dont read..I mean work to hard..>G<
Merm..dont strain that back now while moving and go slow. I know you are looking forward to the new place.

Everyone else have a great day and stay safe

Good morning Jim and Leslie from the land where I will be taken to court for spousal abuse. I was having some sort of a dream last night when Betty got home and I was talking and moaning. She decided to shake me to wake me up. Well, I guess that wasn't a good idea. I awoke swinging and she got hit. (This isn't normal for me: The nightmare or the swinging) She is a bit sore on her side and I don't think it did any real damage. The bad part is that I got so startled when she yelled that I forgot what the heck I was dreaming about but it must have been a doozy

I've been watching the morning news shows with their people reporting from Florida. It is starting to look a little nasty. I hope everyone only ends up with a few palm fronds on the lawn. Stay safe and I am thinking of all the Florida Cruisemates.

Today, we will be taking it easy and doing some financial business and then dinner with friends.

I hope everyone has a great day and once again, all you Floridians; My best to you all.

Edit; John, Merm, Trip: You folks write too fast. :-) You weren't there when I started to write this. <VBG>

Take care,

Good Morning Everyone!

Mike, Mike, Mike what were you dreaming??? Hmmmm????

Mermaid, glad to hear you are finally getting in the new place, how exciting! Be careful with the moving part, make sure Merman does the heavy stuff! :-)

I'm just doing some Sat. chores, leaving the TV/computer on so I can check on Frances and listening to Jim Cantori/Weather Channel concerned about you Florida folks!

I just wish Frances would get it over with already, speed up and be gone. May not be the category she was but hanging around, with endless rain is not a good thing either. A few years back I remember a tropical storm they talked about for days and days that hung around the panhandle/New Orleans, etc. I hope this doesn't happen with Frances! Geeeeesh!!!!

Thinking of all of you and please, please be safe!

Good morning Cat, the start of a three day weekend. What a nice thought.

Merm don't lift too many heavy things. Congrats on the move, I know you have been looking forward to this for a long time.

Mike, it's a wonder Betty didn't punch you back. Sure hope that dream doesn't return anytime soon.

John I agree, we have so many friends that are in Florida and some in the path of the storm that I find myself obsessed with news of this hurricane. At least it has decreased in strength and will wreck less havoc. Everyone in Florida, stay safe.

Susie glad to hear from you. You have been missed.

Trip what book are you reading today?

only 77 more days till we leave for Carnival Victory Thanksgiving cruise. It's starting to seem closer now.

Morning all from Montreal where it looks like it will be a beautiful day/weekend, a touch of summer at last!
Trip, isin't it awful when you get involved in a good book - you don't even want to work!
Mermaid, I'm trying to figure out how a Mermaid is going to carry things up stairs with those flippers?......
John, I share your concern about our Florida mates, I'll be watching CNN and the weather channel here!
Mike, there's just no end to the trouble at your house is there? <VBG> Hope you and Betty enjoy a nice dinner with friends tonight - you both deserve a break!
Susie, nice to see you again, and hi to Tweety, Jim and Leslie!

I'm off to do not much of anything this weekend, just relax and recover from my week of 10-hour days! Take care all....

Looks like its going to be a beautiful weekend here at the Jersey Shore except for rip tides caused by Frances. Tried a recipe for shrimp creole we picked up during a cooking demo on the Enchantment. It was wonderful! My wife always appreciates my culinary efforts when I am off on Friday and she works. I should have my review of the Enchantment up this weekend and more photos.

Prayers and thoughts still with those who are in Frances' path. Everyone have a great day!!!

Mornin' all,

I don't normally get on the computer during the weekend, but I thought I'd check up on all the goings-on down in Florida. Although it's now a cat. 2, Frances looks like it's going to pack a sustained whuppin' on you guys in FL. Just be careful, and be safe! Our prayers go out to you and your friends and neighbors.


Let's Go Buffalo!

Good morning from Southern California where it's cool now, but will be hot here inland. Later today, Keith and I will drive to Newport Beach for a couple of nights. Weather should be a lot cooler there.

I will post from the hotel. And I am hoping for safety for all people and property in Florida. I was glad to hear that Frances was downgraded again.

Have a good Saturday, all.

Good Morning cruisemates!

Think we're all on the same track here, watching Frances and thinking positive thoughts for our Florida cruisemates!!!

Looks like the sun is going to show itself in Calgary again, and the wet /cold weather will disappear for a couple of days. If the sun stays out I'll be golfing this afternoon<G>

Merm.. congrats on the big move! Has to be very exciting to move into the new digs. We're expecting pictures.

Mike.. after hitting Betty (for any reason), I don't want to be you!!!!
