Well, this Monday morning is turning out to be quite a tremendous day as the temps are getting colder, the weather is rainy and the wind is blowing from the north. Houston is gonna get cold the next three or four days. The weather people are predicting an ice storm for us. Those of you who are coming from the northern reaches of the North American continent to Galveston to catch a cruise, and think you are escaping the cold... guess again!!! .
I am having to work a double shift because my relief was ill.
There will be a MLK parade this morning and gosh, are they going to be miserable .
Sunday marked the annual Houston Marathon so some of the roads were blocked for the people to run on.
Have a good day my friends.
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.
Good morning Michael and all the CM's to follow. It has been raining in the "Burgh" for an eternity. Gary and I have begun to build the ark. It just doesn't have the same appeal to me as Freedom of the Seas, Century, etc.
We arrived home from the cruise on 1/05 and I hit the ground running. I ended up working 9 days in a row, but took yesterday off. On my "off" day, I painted the bathroom. To say I'm tired, is an understatement. I NEED A CRUISE!!!!! I hope you all have a safe and happy day.

It's a messy morning here in western NY, where we have been getting the freezing rain since last night. Luckily, I remembered to put some plastic on my truck last night, so I didn't have to scrape this morning. Otherwise, I'd still be scraping right now. The roads weren't bad, since they have been salting the roads since yesterday.
Not much else going on today. Just counting the days 'till vacation.
Good morning from still dark Florida. ML you sure work a lot. Kids are at home today and I assume they will sleep in. I might try to catch a movie with youngest. I have been down in the dumpster for quite a while now and I wish i could get out.
My dh keeps talking about cruises, very strange. I don't see where we could even go for a day beause of his work schedule.
yesterday I went looking for some scarfes and hats for our Germany trip but could not find anything. It is "warm" right now in Germany they say 3 C but feels like -2C. But nothing compared to our mild temps here in FL. I am thinking to take my little dog with me but not sure. Maybe I should start taking out a suitcase too and start thinking what to pack.
Have a wonderful day mates!

Good Morning cruisemates! I haven't looked outside yet, but the weather here in Ft. Lauderdale has to be better than it's going to be when Mrs. Kuki and I arrive home in Calgary at midnight tonight.
Today our plans involve a trip to Publix for a few products which we like that arent available at home; Lowry's garlic mix, Smucker's sugar free breakfast syrup, and a couple of other items I forget. Mrs Kuki has the list.
Then it's off to meet a CruiseMates at Two Jays for lunch, back to the hotel for a bit of a nap before heading to the airport.
Morning All, from Montreal, where winter has arrived at last. It's snowing heavily out there this morning, expected accumulation 15-20cms. Not much really, compared to what we usually have by mid Jan.!
At least the kids at daycare will be happy they have something to play with outdoors!
Yesterday was a complete write-off for me. I was downtown, not entirely awake, by 8 a.m. and sat in a first aid course till 4:30 p.m. We are required to re-new our first aid every 3 years for work, so now it's done till 2010!
Kuki, enjoy your last day in FLL, because coming home is going to be a shock to the system! You've had alot of snow out west, and deep freeze temperatures, much worse than here. Have a safe trip home.
Good morning everyone. A strange white powder has descended from the sky and covered the ground. Children are frightened, there is panic in the streets but the old and wise ones say that they once saw it back in 2004. It is called snow.
Betty and I have shoveled the front of the driveway and are waiting for our plow guy (neighbor) to do the rest. It really isn't bad, only 3 or 4 inches. We can get out with no problem.
This shoveling stuff is for the birds. I guess I should get Betty what every woman wants. A snowblower.
I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning from Fl. where the temp is already 76. Come on down.
Jake left yesterday afternoon to fly up to Green Bay WI. He called me when he got to Chicago to let me know that he'd forgotten to take a coat. OOPS! Today they have snow and temps in the 20's in Green Bay. Good thing he is only a block away from the work site.
Yesterday at church the message was on creation. Guess what I learned? God said everything was good except on the day that corresponds to our Monday. Pretty neat that he can relate to all of us.
Good morning everyone - for those who are or will soon be dealing with the snow/ice be careful, and just remember, spring is just around the corner....

Wow it sounds like winter is hitting hard,,,it still has not hit here in the bottom right corner of Va. We had record breaking high temps yesterday and expecting more today,,,,then the bottom falls out.
Wow Kuki it feels like you have been on that cruise forever,,,or that I have been back at work forever. Guess I still have PCD,,,
I had a very productive but relaxing weekend,,,,went "cropping" with my daughter Leah. Every year we do a weekend away with a bunch of other ladies (37 this time) to crop and put into scrapbooks all our photos. Bet ya can't guess what some of my photos were about. Actually all my photos were about cruising
Hope everyone has a great Monday Monday,,,like the song says,,,ya can't trust that day,,,
Good Morning from our wet and icy Homestead,
Having a blast walking to the barn and back.
A layer of ice that crunches and breaks when you walk on it.
Then underneath squishy grass.Makes walking loads of fun.
Y'all have a Wonderful Day!
Good morning from Orlando where I'm enjoying the day off from work by working around the house! Not much really, just catching up on stuff. Jimmy is off from school and will probably sleep most of the day.No point in waking him up if he's only supposed to rest anyway.
Morning from the Pacific Northwest..............still cold & still snow on the ground.......high for today is suppose to be 37 & snow for tomorrow???? Not suppose to warm up til Saturday now......enuff of this stuff!!!!!
It's Monday.........so that means laundry......yugh!!!!!
I'm with Mary Lou.......I nned a cruise!!!!!! Seems like sooooooo long ago!
Good Morning!!!! A little late posting today as I have the day off due to the Holiday. Still somewhat warmish here in South Jersey but it is supposed to get more winter-like later in the week, but no snow or ice in sight.
Marj and I are booked on our next cruise!!!!! We are taking the Southern Caribbean route on the Crown Princess in November. We got great pricing and reduced deposit.
Hope everyone has a great Day!!!!
