Good morning to everyone!! It is early but I am up because I just got in from another job. So, I will post the morning post here. It is currently 1am here in Houston and it is still 81F . Hot and humid. .
Since no one is on right now, I will check back in later in the morning. Meanwhile, I'll jump into bed and dream of our cruise again.... uummmm.
Cruised more times than I can remember.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
It is cooler here also but lots of rain. Today is "Grandma" visit day for Ryan and I. We missed seeing Grandma last week with Ryan being sick. Everyone is sleeping, how quiet around here.
The boss let everyone know I will be taking a couple days to get ready for my trip. This will give me a chance to get my affairs in order. Three whole weeks without my little guy! I hope I am not too homesick.
I think I might get used to not cleaning doggie hairs and picking up after two messy "guys". On second thought, maybe I won't be too homesick-just a little. DH will get a chance to see how much I actually do aound the house.
Ultimately, the only power to which a man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
Good morning all! It is another very rainy day in the "Burgh". We awoke to the sounds of pouring rain. It started on Sunday and there is no end in sight until at least Saturday. So much for the wall project! I hope you all have a wonderful day.

ML, you are getting the weather that was in Florida last week. Enjoy!
not much happening here, work,work, work.
Finally paid off the Century cruise bill. Now I can look for shore excursions,do the tee shirts, & dream.
See you tonight on chat.
I woke up to rain this morning, but as I drove into the parking lot at work, the sun began to shine through the clouds. I hope it will stay that way, but I'm not holding my breath. We've had so much rain lately, that everything in the house feels like the rails on a cruise ship. Oh, how I love that sticky feeling. If I put on some island music, and I close my eyes,... I can pretend, can't I?
Good Morning all!!! Busy day ahead at work, the fun never ends .
Mary Lou, if it keeps raining you may be building a sea wall
Everyone have a great day!!!

"The sun is shining here in Avon Park, FL." I haven't started like that in a few days! We are getting back into the dryer pattern again since the LOW is out of our area. It still rained quite a bit last night.
Still no cabin assignment for our November cruise but it is a guarantee so we may not have one until we get to the ship. I just read Kuki's article about "Guarantee Cabins" and understand the concept. We discovered Run of House while booking hotel rooms. This is the same thing. In both cases, our hotel rooms were quite adequate. On our Golden cruise in 2001, we had no assignment and it was a regular paid cabin. We received the upgrade of our life on that ship and we were hooked!!
Nothing else new and exciting. Our temps will be creeping up to around 90 over the next few days again.
Well, grey skies again. Yesterday it just poured all day. It is dry at present, but more rain scheduled for later in the day, and all day tomorrow. We are under a flash flood watch. The ground is so soggy. It seems we will never get to use the pool.
Busy day today. There is just so much stress here. I think my stomach is permanently messed up. I also have an odd floating lump in the layers of my cheek tissue, down near my jaw line, it isn't really adhered to anything, as when you put your finger on it it moves back and forth, but it is painful. I hope it just goes away, but if it is still there by the first of next week I will call the doctor.
Wish I had something fun or interesting to report.
Gotta leave for work soon, I'm sure that there will be extra to do with me being gone part of last week.
Good Morning Friends! I'm taking my sister to the Airport this morning...she's off to Florida to visit my other sis...I offered to go along and help with the shopping Trip, but they wouldn't take me up on it!
Trip, if you're down the Ohio way, you better stop in! !
Good Morning everyone from the Tidewater of Va. Where yep you guessed it,,,It's also raining. Wow have we had lots of rain,,,with more rain in the forecast. I guess this low thingee is stalled over us sooooo,,,,not looking good. Yikes,,,just figures with a long weekend coming up.
Hope eveyone has a great Tuesday,,,mine is fast heading for the toilet,,<bg>
I can attest to the picture that Mike posted above.
We were together on Maui. Stopped at a stand for a smoothie. There was no electric to run the blender. The lovely gal put all the good stuff in the blender then jumped on the bicycle and started peddling. The belt pulled the generator and thus she had electric. You can see the rest. And Helen was looking on amazed. The smoothy was delicious.
Good work Mike.
