Good morning Trip, Judy, Ewok and all the CM's to follow: Trip, that was very funny last night. I thought I had lost it too! It is a very chilly day in the "Burgh"....56 degrees this morning. It sure feels like fall and it a far cry from the high 90's of last week in the Caribbean. I hope you all have a great day.

Good Morning!!! More of the grind at work, this is getting old quick. I finally lost it yesterday and sent an email out to my project officers basically telling them not to call and ask what the status of thier grants are, that every five minutes I spend on the phone with them is five minutes less that I have to work on thier grants, all of which are the most important ever awarded in the history of EPA .
Hope everyone has a great day!!!!

So sorry I missed Chat last night. May be a good thing, however. I would have been so CONFUSED
Just another work day for me today. Not too bad, always could be better, though. Still counting down to retirement. Don't have an official number of days -- I am marking it off with the different weekend events between now and then.
Doug, I hope your work gets better. Thanks for the pictures, they sure do brighten my days.
Make it a great day!

Still messed up on my time. I missed all the "trips" in chat because of my late arrival. I am washing clothes this morning. So far, nothing has turned out pink so Betty will be happy when she wakes up. Then again, I have two loads to go.
Doug: Could you check on the status of the grant for me.
Ewok: Enjoy school: If your academic and social skills are anything like your writing skills you'll do well in life. Don't sweat some of the petty stuff.
BTW: Go Twins. I smell Central Division championship. Gee: They were only 10 games back a month ago. What a race and what a set of teams in the Central. Twins, Detroit and White Sox. Too bad one isn't going to the play offs.

A cold front went thru yesterday, the temps are quite abit cooler, but I think the sun will shine for most of the day, so it's all good. Yesterday the sun was out early, but by 10 the clouds rolled in and the rest of the day was grey and rainy.
Got my files all cleaned out yesterday - what a relief. Lots to do there again today, then home to do some cleaning and teach my Bible Study. Have tons of paper work to get done her at home, but can't seem to get to that.
Doug - sorry they big bosses keep hounding you, makes it hard to get stuff done that way.
Judy - glad Keith is feeling better
Trip - what a hoot
Ewok - hope you have a great school year, maybe it will get less hectic as a routine settles in
Good morning from rainy Florida. Yesterday our cleaning lady was here for 6 hrs and she did a good job. The house looks very clean and I am wondering how long it will last
This morning I am going to the pharmacy to drop of our Maleria prescription and get a few things for our trip. Our table in the dining room is getting crowded with all the stuff we will be bringing to Africa. Lots of stuff for the kids in the orphanage. We are planning to bring them to the store there also, as they need everything I hope we can bless them in a big way.
This saturday my dh and I are going to the spa and doing a couple thing. We are both looking forward to it. Not sure yet if we will stay overnight.
Have a wonderful day mates!

Good Morning from Central Texas where it is not quite light outside. I think our high today will be in the 80's, which we will gladly take.
Found out last night what day hubby will leave. Suddenly feel so sad. I keep telling myself I have been through this before, but so far, it doesn't matter. We have this thing where he will kiss me, and then say whether it is for now, or for later when he is gone. I get to save them up, and remember them when needed.
I also had to get my map out. I don't think I have ever told you guys about my map. He is no allowed for security reasons, to tell me where he is over there, so we use a map of a different state, and use those cities, as if they were Iraq cities. It works really well. To show you what I mean. The last time we used Texas. Dallas was Bagdad, and Houston was Kuwait. So if he was going to Bagdad, he would say"remember that trip we took to Dallas?" "I was thinking about going last Wed." That means that he will be going on wed. to Bagdad. We stopped using Texas, because he said something about hunting in West Texas, and I thought he was on the move. Turned out he really was planning a trip, when he got back.
I hope everyone has a great day!! take care of yourselves!!
Morning All, from Montreal, where it's cooled off to 12C this morning (53F), but at least it's sunny. I can't believe it's only Wednesday...this week is dragging... Doug, thanks again for the daily photos, I look forward to them! Trip, I missed the fun in chat last night, came in too late. Must've been fun for you! Mike, if the laundry doesn't turn out pink, try, try again! Ewokdude, nice to see you posting again!
Good Morning CruiseMates!!! I can't believe I am so late this morning. Yesterdays golf game was fun. I did not actually play but watched my gentleman friend play. He spent a lot of time explaining things to me. Maybe next time I will get brave enough to actually try it. It sounds like chat last night was fun, I wish I was there, maybe tonight. Time to go out aand do some work. Have a great day CruiseMates!!

Doug, that photo is one of my favorite places on earth! DH and I want to go back for a land vacation to St. Martin and rent one of those beautiful hilltop condos for a week.
Luanne what a great idea! Bless your heart, I know it's horrid when he goes, even though you know it's coming.
It's 60 here in Hot Lanta today and we'll take it! I'm DONE with summer.

Good morning from WI where the sun is shining and it's a balmy 46 degrees out there. It really is gorgeous!
Chat was fun last night. Trip, I'm glad you got such a kick out of it.
Doug, thanks for the beautiful photo again today.
Ewok, it's nice to see your post today. I liked reading Mike's comments to you. I have to agree with him.
Luanne, what a hard time for you and your family, but I really like your attitude and how you try to make the best of it. A special thanks to your husband and family for the sacrifices you make for our country.
