Default PapaBill, it is Friday, so

goodmorning to you and all the cruisemates that follow.

In Amsterdam the weather is not bad, no rain for the first time this week, no cold wind either, it is not summer yet, but hey, how long can it take

Another busy day at the hospital. I wish you all a nice day and a terrific weekend. For those who go on a cruise: happy sailing, enjoy every minute.

For the Mates under the weather: get well soon.

Good morning Jacqueline and all the CM's to follow. Friday, yes!!!!!!!!
Although the weeks seem to fly by, I'm still glad it is Friday. We are off to WV after work today to spend the weekend with Jackie. I've not been to her new house in a couple of months.....and this time, there are no projects planned around the house. Just going for a nice visit. I am really looking forward to that. Woke up to very high winds this morning, but mild temperatures. I hope you all have a great day!

Good Friday Morning!!! It is a cool 51 here in Austin and it's going to be a beautiful day. I finally posted my trip report under ship reviews. It was on the Costa Mediterranea.

Mornin' everybody,

It's a balmy 52F here in upstate NY, where we will be getting some strong winds today, too. That's OK, I'm ready for spring!

DW saw her doctor to check on the knee. He told her to get rid of the crutches and start walking on that leg. Unfortunately, the way she's limping, it looks like she'll hurt something else before long. She wants to go to the mall tonight to get some books at the used book sale they have twice a year. That will be interesting.

I've got a fasting blood work to get done tomorrow morning, and a funeral to sing at afterwards. Then it will be some housework. Another busy day.

Have a great day and a fabulous weekend!

Ed

Morning All, from Montreal, where we're having a heat wave! It's +5C this morning, the first time it's hit the +'s in a long time. That's about 41F and feels darn good. This weekend it's supposed to hit +10C (50ish F) so it will be even more pleasant. Unfortunately, rain comes with the warmer temps, but at least it will melt the snow! Can you say "Spring?"

Hubby got home last night, late, and exhausted after a long day's travel from San Antonio. He's happy to be home, but sad he had to leave the 85 degrees behind! I'm just glad to have him back.

Good Morning All,

It is warming up, already 35. The schols are all delayed 2 hours as the dirt roads are all glare ice. Walking the dog was a little tricky this morning. Supposed to reach the high 50's today, and rain most of the day. The ground is still saturated.

Not too much else going on.

Good Day to you all,

Good Morning from Southern California. It's very windy, woke me up a couple of times and we are suppose to get a lot of rain. Been on the new job for 4 days now and enjoying it but thank goodness it's Friday. Many changes at the hospital but not hard to catch on. Hardest part is getting up SO early but I love coming home early.

Tomorrow is MIL's 80th birthday. What a wonderful, loving woman who still drives, shops and lives in the 3300 sq ft home my DH grew up in!! The whole family, about 20 of us are surprising her at Buca di Beppos, her favorite restaurant, for dinner. Each family member is giving her a rose so she will have a beautiful bouquet.

Have a great day everyone!

Friends do not ridicule each other in public or private. I've had enough.
It has been nice.
Goodbye.

Hi Kids,
Going to bea warm and sunny day here,and I am going to enjoy every minute of it.

Papa, you made a suggestion, a constructive one at that, and I applaud you for doing so. You don't kill the messenger, and I think the sarcasm is unnapreciated by many, and now it could be my turn, but so be it. Double posting has happened to many, including me. Papa, I sure hope to see your smiling face on the morning thread tomorrow.

Make it a good one.

Top of the morning from an absolutely gorgeous Alabama heading toward a high of 77F today.
Yesterday evening was a different story with huge winds ( clocked up to 80 mph ), heavy rain and hail. Fortunately for yours truly, the major storm passed about 70 miles north of us. Many communities had some structural damage and there was a lot of power outages, but fortunately, we were spared.
From reading the previous posts it does appear that Spring is coming to all. I don't hear any complaints.
FastEddie, you are getting so good with your nursing and housekeeping, I might like to hire you.
Hope BJ has a good, safe, fun trip to Reno today.
Hey Papa, you have got to stick around. You have an eloquent way of posting and these boards would not be the same without you !
Have a good one guys and be safe.

Regards,
Ben

Good Morning cruisemates! The forecast snow in Calgary turned out to be just a skiff of flurries, thankfully. So my drive in to work today should be relatively normal. Temps of about 20 F to deal with. Not too ugly.

I'm busy counting down to our Phoenix soujourn. Just 10 days to go.

PapaBill - You had better NOT go anywhere or you'll have a moose tracking you down!!!

Good morning from another snowy day here in Vancouver! The snow yesterday really melted by about 5:30pm , but then last night about 10:30 I looked out..and wow! was it ever coming down! Now the sun is out again and should quickly melt our beautiful snow. Made my eldest walk to school and I walked my youngest to school-it looked a bit icy at 7:15am.
I am leaving tomorrow morn with my girls for a quick Spring Break holiday to my sisters house in the Okanagan Valley. We will be doing a bit of work on my Mum's house(it is still up for sale). Anybody want to buy a beautiful 1 1/2(or2) acre lot in a nice area??lol So I will not be around until next Thursday.
PBill-I sure hope you are not seriously leaving CruiseMates!
Everyone take care. Bye for now. Brenda
