Default Good Morning Friday!

I guess I'm 1st up this morning, and that doesn't surprise me, since it's just after 6 a.m. What am I doing up so early??
Today is the 1st day of the new school year, and I have to be in early to meet and greet all the new kids starting daycare today. (and wiping away tesrs, giving hugs, and reassuring parents!) It's going to be a l-o-n-g day!

Mornin' everybody,

It's the beginning of the long weekend, because my boss is taking a vacation day, so I'm here to hold down the fort. Is it like the inmates running the asylum?

I got my lawn mowed yesterday before all the rains from Ernesto come tomorrow. It's going to be a bit soggy, so the start of my weekend will be stuck in front of the TV watching college football. After that, we are going to play it by ear.

Donna... those tears you are wiping away, are they from the parents?

Jeanne... Bon Voyage! Don't forget to see Bert Stratton!

Have a great day and a fabulous (and safe) holiday weekend!

Ed

Good morning everyone,

Its going to be a so-so weekend thanks to Ernesto but I'm making the most of it. Today is only suppose to get up to 72 degrees. I figure thats better then up to my waist in snow. Long weekend coming up. We're taking the boat downtown to the Jazz fest and peek in at the Tigers game.

Have a fantastic weekend.

Good Morning All,

A foggy morning here. Looks like we will stay dry today. Maybe even tomorrow.

It was great to watch a Red Sox game at a decent hour last night! Those west coast games just about killed me, and the way they played didn't help keep me awake. Last night they had some nice defensive moves, and with the help of Rios we had a winning score. We will take what we can get at this point. So sad to see so many of our players unwell.

I should do some housework today, but also want to make some cards. Also, have to bathe the dog.

Jeane and Tina - Happy Sails!
RD - good luck with your new class. It takes awhile to get them trained (mostly the parents).
Ed - we too got the lawns done last nite before the rains settle in. The only good thing about fall like temps is that the grass is growing just a little slower these days.

Hope you all have a great start to a long weekend,

Good morning from Central Texas where it is suppose to get up to 98 today. Where is fall? If any of you see it, please tell it to hurry to Texas. We have had enough hot weather.

Today is my last day in the classroom I have been working for the last two weeks. It is kind of sad, but sure glad to give some of the students back to their teacher. This will be their first look at there new teacher, since she has been out since the beginning of school. They think I am to strict, and are sure that the "real " teacher will be so much better. Sure would like to be a fly on the wall on Tuesday. At least I look soft, she looks like she eats kids for breakfast!

O well, I will at least get my life back. I have not read a fun book in two weeks. You can't when you have tons of papers to grade.

Have a great day guys. Those cruising this weekend, have a great cruise.

Luanne

Good Morning Gang!!! We are waiting for whatever Ernesto has left here. Donna I am sure the reassuring hugs are for the parents . Taking care of a few errands this morning so we can stay in during the storm. Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Here is a picture of Marj and the Jackass at Drake's Seat in St. Thomas. (oh yeah, there is a donkey in the picture too )

Great picture Doug! Greetings from beautiful downtown Lakeland, Florida, where the sun is shining, and the birds are tweeting. Sorry to send the hurricane, or what's left of it to those of you up North. Hope you all have a great holiday!

Ken

Good morning from sunny Florida. Long weekend ahead and I think my dh is planning a romantic getaway He keeps hinting. We also hired a cleaning lady and she is coming tuesday. I hope this will work out. My oldest daughter told me she feels sorry for the cleaning lady I think she was joking?

I think I need to unpack from CO and repack for the romantic getaway. Thats all I am doing today. I also have to go and buy a blender at Bed&Bath today. Ah, maybe next week.

Take care mates and have a wonderful day! Doug the pictures that keep popping up from St Thomas have convinced me that our next cruise must ho there so I can revisit it with my dh!

Good Morning cruisemates! Warming up in Calgary today... highs back to the 70s F.

Went golfing in the mountains near Banff yesterday, and though the morning started out quite "crispy", it turned into a beautiful day. Turned out it poured rain in the city most of the day, so good thing we were up in the gorgeous Canadian Rockies. Interestingly, there was already some snow at the highest elevations on the mountains.

Today it's back to work.. with lots on my plate.

Monday (Labour Day) is the only holiday (besides Christmas, Easter... and other denominational holidays) that the US and Canada have in common.

Good morning from Southern California. Hot indefinitely.

Gym day for Keith and a manicure for me later on. Keith is knee deep in a search for a new digital camera that does RAW, whatever that means. You'll all see the new camera on the Cruise of the Century, maybe the RAW, too, who knows?

Have a good day, all.

Judy
