Default Happy Thursday

Good Morning!!!! Back at work after dropping mucho dinero on a new hot water heater . I was in favor of the old fashioned way of heating the water on the stove and hauling it to the tub, but I was overruled by Marj and Mikie .

Hope everyone has a great day!!!!!!

Good Morning Doug and all CM's to follow:

It's been hit an miss with me in the morning. Just so busy. I really do miss my mornings with the chit chat boards. Often my co-workers will ask why am I laughing to myself. They just don't get it.

It looks like the weather is finally warming up here in Toronto. Yes, just in time to cut the grass for the first time this season. Should take me about 2.5 hrs. ouch.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Default Thursday Morning

A very early good morning to all frolm Southern California. I couldn't sleep, so I thought I'd say hi, but both computers were down. Don't know what my DH did, but they're working again.

This is get ready to travel day. Lots of things to do before crawling on an airplane tomorrow morning to go to Minnesota.

I'll probably come back at ya later. If I don't, have a good day, and I'll post from Minneapolis.

Good Morning from Central Texas where it is the calm after the storms. The storms hit us one after the other last night. Thank God, no damage to report, but now have very skiddish dogs.

Today I am employed as a Chief Domestic Engineer here at the house. What a mess!!!

Sure wish we were going away this weekend, again. That was so much fun. It sure makes every day life very dull.

Everyone have a good day.

Luanne

Good morning "Mates" from beautiful Central Florida. Just another day in paradise. On the way to the eye doc to get the "peepers" looked at, then off to work.

See y'all aboard,

Ken

Good Morning All

Very sunny this morning, tho' quite chilly. Today will be a try to finish everything I didn't get done yesterday sort of day. I'm still determined to try to be caught up on everything by Saturday. It is looking "iffy" at best.

Doug - love that pretty tree! Sorry about your hotwater heater.

K&J - happy packing and have a great time in Minn.

Kuki - I hope you enjoy your trip and all will be at home while you are away.

Cheryl - hope you got your packing al done
Have a great day Mates...

Morning All, from Montreal, where like VTJen, it's sunny, but chilly. It's May, and the furnace is still going!

Anybody see LOST last night? Wow, what a strange show! Are they really all dead?!!

Good morning, Mates!

Looks like we will have a stormy day today. Rain moved through last night, but not too bad, this far south.

Today a nice lady will be coming to the house to cut my MIL's hair. That sure is easier than trying to get her to a salon. Also, the visiting nurse will be dropping by.

Doug, I always love your pictures, they take me to places I would rather be! Glad you got your new water heater. Hopefully you will have lots of hot water to get into, now.

RD, of course they aren't all dead! The show must go on! (actually, no clue, but couldn't help myself )

Everyone have a great day!

Good morning all.

Beautiful day here in good old Massachusetts. Too bad I'm spending it indoors. I'll go out for a walk during my lunch break.

Yes, Jen, I am all packed and ready to go. Our flight leaves at 7:25 pm on Friday night. Hopefully, I'll sleep the entire flight. After we land in Tampa, we will pick up the kids and drive to Disney World.

RD--saw bits and pieces of LOST since I was packing. We did tape it so I'll probably watch it tonight.

Doug---nice picture. thanks for sharing.

Hope everyone has a great and safe day.

Good Morning cruisemates! Rain forecast for most of the day in Calgary. Just have a couple of last minute errands to take care of.

Heading to the airport later in the afternoon, and off to Athens, and then NCL Jewel, through Greek Islands, Egypt, and Turkey.

Kuki,

It is good to see that you will get to do your cruise. I know that there was a time when you wondered. Question: Do you have others from CM on this cruise?

Good morning from SoCal again. Sun's shining, sorta.

Wow, I wonder how this wedding I'm going to will come off. The wedding invitation states that the ceremony is at 5:30 p.m. May 5. I just got an e-mail saying that I'ved got to have my mother at the restaurant at 1:15 p.m. for pictures and that the actual wedding itself is at 3 p.m. We would have missed it! Also, I'm supposed to be at a party Friday night in Minneapolis while I'm on an airplane!

Miracle of miracles, the Los Angeles Times followed instructions for once, so there was no paper this morning. Now I don't have to call and yell at 'em for an accumulation of newspapers when I get back.

We've been trying to get together with Mike and Betty while we're in Minnesota. Haven't heard anything from Mike. I really hope he's okay.

Will crawl on a plane early Friday morning, so I won't post til Saturday in Minneapolis. Be good while I'm gone.

Judy
