Default Good Morning from Me!

Well, it looks like I'm the first up this morning, so I will say hello and goodbye! I'll be leaving in a few minutes for the train to Toronto where I will be attending a teachers' conference for the next 2 days. Not exactly a relaxing weekend, but it'll be fun.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. Thomas, hang in there, and Sue, best of luck to your daughter today.

donna

Good morning from Orlando. I'm off to an all day staff meeting......argh.....shoot me now!
Football tonight. Halftime will have the annual kiss the pig contest. The kids have been contributing to different teachers and the teacher who collects the most "wins" and has to kiss the pig. The band director is up for the "award".....gee.....do you think it's possible the Z's may have contributed heavily? The money goes to make Thanksgiving food baskets for needy school families.

Mornin' everybody,

Not much going on today. Just resting up for all of the work I'll be doing this weekend. After about a week and a half of rain, I finally got most of my Halloween decorations up. My new neighbors probably think I'm nuttier than a fruit cake, but I always get people slowing down to check things out.

Hope everyone has a great day and a fabulous weekend!

Ed

Good morning Cruisemates.

RollerDonna: Have a good time in good old Hogtown.

Finally, my Pittsburgh Penguins won their first hockey game this year. Afer playing 8 games without a win, they got their act together and won last night.

It will be a good day.

Morning all;

Everybody out the door on time, not too many problems this am. Fil in Florida is ok. Still no power, no gas for a 150 miles. Thier spirits are high, he still doesn't want to leave. Even though we found a house, (my cousin owns and rents) that is vacant and ready for him. It's in Englewood. He is worried he wouldn't get gas to get there. Oh well.

Sue: I hope all goes well with the new arrival of a grand daughter or grand son.

Donna: Hope you are still feeling fine.

Ed: I used to do alot of outdoor decor, but got away from it lately. Have fun.

Bearmoose! Morning! Get to work now.

All the rest to follow!!! HEY IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!

Tina

Good Friday morning to all. Woke up alittle late today. Need to fill the Halloween grab bags for the daycare kids. We are having our Halloween party today. I only have two of the little darlings on Mondays. Today I all have 6.
Busy weekend planned also. Tony and I both work on Saturday. Me all day, him half day. Then yard cleanup to do, lots of leaves and branches. Sunday I work all day. He has his football to watch, so he appreciates me being gone during the games. Unfortunately, the Patriots aren't on until 8:30 pm. Tony and my son think I'm a jinx am don't like me watching them. But I'll be watching Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy on the family room TV.

Donna--have fun in Toronto
Tbug--hope your FIL continues to be okay.
Angela--have fun tonight. Kiss the pig?????????
Thomas--thinking of you
Sue--let us know when the baby is born and how everyone is doing
Eddie--Pats vs. Bills

Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend.

Good Morning everyone!!!! Day off but I am quite busy as I have to take the new Pacifica back to the dealer to get the registration, then go get it inspected at the inspection station, then off to McGuire AFB to get a military registration so I can use the facilities and finally to pick my mother up who is coming down for an overnight visit. We are all going to QVC tomorrow --- OMG my wife and mother loose in the store with credit cards!!!!!

Good Morning All,

Another grey morning here. Thought the sun was supposed to shine today. Maybe later. Thousands still without power. Looks like husband will have to work tomorrow. They are all pretty weary, but hate seeing so many still without electricity.

Driving around it is sad to see so many trees broken. My lilacs received heavy damage and I am heartsick.

Brenda in Canada - I sent you a Personal Message yesterday to answer your Burlington question.

Ed - wish I lived closer, I'd love to see your decorations
Sue - can't wait to hear about your newest addition to the family. Still
keeping your middle daughter in prayer

Looking forward to the Pat's game on Saturday!

Good Weekend to you all,

Good Morning from Central Texas. It is a nice fall day here. This is the first time we have had all the windows open since last spring. I forgot how noisey this town can be. With the trains and military helicopters. I am staying home today, because this has been a busy week. I am wiped out.

Prayers to those who need it.

Remember to Love!!

Luanne

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone on the east coast gets the weather we're going to have the next 3 days! Talk about a dose of early winter, ice, downed trees, hope everyone is safe!

I'm just sitting around waiting to go into work, it's been slow again. I have to wait and go in right before the mail arrives, then if not much comes in I get to come back home again. Only good thing about that is once I set foot in the door Manpower pays me for 4 hours.

Not much planned for the weekend, but if the temps gets decent, I still have some Fall chores to do. I always meet a friend for breakfast early on Sat. then stop at the Super WalMart on the way home. Structured, I am even on weekends! :-)

Thinking of everyone! Have a great weekend!

Good morning everyone:

I pushed things a bit too hard the last few days and I'm going to have to take it a bit easy today. I'm feeling a bit shaky, so I'll be staying home while Betty helps out the kids.

On Sunday night we will have dinner with Keith and Judy. It will be great to meet and chat with them.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and great weekend.

Take care,
Mike

Good morning all. Beautiful sunny day here in WI, and the frost is definately on the pumpkins this morning. We'll be in for showers of leaves today.

Sue, we're all waiting for news of the baby. Keeping your family in my prayers. Can't wait to hear about the new little one.

Jen, I'm surprised to hear that you have so many without power around you still. I know your husband is working hard on that. Tell him how much we appreciate the job he and others like him do when we are without lights.

Take care all.
Phyll

Good morning from Southern California where it's still dark at 6:19 a.m.

We will put on the finishing touches to our packing and be on our way to Minnesota. Will probably post from The Cities at some point.

Take care, all. Keith and I will be back Monday night, the Lord willing.

Judy

TGIF! Its a beautiful day in SE Florida. Hard to beleieve what we just went thru with Wilma. We are slowly but surely getting the electric back. Those electric workers are wonderful. They are coming from all over to help out, a lot were here last year to help. A big thank you to all who are helping us either in physical labor or prayer. We appreciate it all. Judy, have a safe trip. Sue, looking forward to seeing the new addition to your family. Everyone have a great weekend.
