Default What I did on my summer vacation, 2006

Okay folks, there are photos in the CM Personal Cruise Gallery of what we've been all consumed with this summer.
Remember the first day back to school and the teacher asked, "So what did you do on your summer vacation?" Your turn....

5 day cruise to coz and KW, and 1 week visiting family in NY and connecticut. Worked, go on cruisemates everyday and fight with dina and REDZONE, studied for my fantasy football draft, worked, looked up cruises I can never afford, Drank alot of beer to stay hydrated in the Florida sun and have begun planning my ski vacation! That about covers it!

That is fantastic, ML!!!!!!!! I can't believe that you and Gary did that.
WOW!!!!!! The money you saved on labor and craftmanship should be enough to do an around the world cruise.

Default What I Did on My Summer Vacation, 20006

ML, Wow! This looks great! Keith's been working on our back yard fence. I'll have to get him to post pix! He's blocked out almost all of the neighbor's messes.

Mary Lou, those pictures look frighteningly familiar! I didn't take a "before" shot, but our walk and driveway looked much like yours, cracked! What little garden I had was destroyed, and has now been painstakingly re-planted. Unlike you however, I let somebody else do the hard labour with the stonework. When the driveway finally gets paved, I will take an "after" picture and post it.
Meanwhile, you and Gary did an awesome job! Both of you deserve a nice massage on your next cruise!

Awesome job. I especially love the lights. You and Gary should be very proud of yourselves. What do you charge for labor if I get the supplies?

As for my summer vacation. I haven't had it yet. So far I've worked, got a new full time job, spoiled my kids and posted on cruisemates. I will be leaving for Tampa on the 22nd of August.

Thanks all. It was a long, difficult project, but we are very happy with the results.

Well, I played all summer prior to my return to the workforce next month...a trip to Key West, a trip to Daytona Beach, two 7 night cruises, Disney World, and some new tattoos!!!

Hi,
Very nice, Mary Lou!

Trevor's on "Summer Vacation" all year 'round, since he's retired.

My summer vacation is planned for the Fall, when cruise prices are down-usually between mid-September-and October-after our big craft event. This year will be the latest--November 24-December 2.

I have 3 weeks, so I usually take days, "here and there", especially with my mother and stepfather down here during the winter months-go home in April. I also save some time for when my son makes his annual visit down here, traditionally now, in December. (Maybe it will be later this year, due to our later cruise. Earlier??)

Lynne

Mary Lou, Very well done job. I read where you to were working on it, but didn't realize how much you were having to do. Do you catch yourself just looking at it with a smile?
