Default Good Tuesday Morning

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.

Buon Giorno,
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.

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.

Mornin' everybody,

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?

Not much else going on today, so...

Have a great day!

Ed

Hello!
"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.

Bye for now. Lynne

Good morning from WI. Hasn't warmed up since Lisa posted. We seem to be in a pattern of showers and cool temps.

Things are pretty quiet around here. Just wanted to say hi.

Good Morning All,

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.

Hope you all have happy, safe day's.

Good Morning cruisemates! Another gorgeous day on tap in Calgary. Any Alaska cruisers doing land tours through the Canadian Rockies at the moment are in for a treat with this great weather.

I was shocked yesterday to finally get some people applying for jobs during the Calgary Stampede. If they show up, I may not get as stranded for help as I was expecting in this tough job market.

On a downer today, they announced a 33% increase in our electricity rates today. For my business that means about an extra $2500 /month!! YIKES!!

Good morning everyone:

It's looks to be a nice day here. We had a bit of skunk problem last night but let's just say the skunk won't be returning.

Kuki: I have great idea how you can save money on electricity and make tasty fu fu drinks at the same time: I hear this girl is now looking for a job.




I hope everyone has a great day.

Take care,
Mike

Default Electric

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.

Hi Mehawk. We are in Houston also and I believe the next couple of nights are supposed to be in the low 70's. Enjoy!
